I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

As the Friends theme song goes, so no one told you life was gonna be this way? Unfortunately for those of us on the homo side of the Kinsey scale, there’s no user manual for being gay, and our many of our life lessons are hard-earned.

So what things about being queer no one told you about?

Is it:

 You thought when you came out, it was a one-and-done type deal?

How life really starts to diverge from your heterosexual counterparts as you get older?

A lot of vacation spots are off limits?

Being gay doesn’t mean we won’t be assholes to each other?

How lonely being gay actually is?

How harsh and judgmental some gays are towards each other?

How isolating it can be if you’re not into the arts/culture/theatre scene?

If you’re into sports/cars/outdoors, how do you find a group of friends where you really fit in?

How uninviting the gay ‘community’ really is?

Just how expensive it is to live a fabulous gay lifestyle?

That sex and hookups come easy, but genuine relationships and intimacy are hard to get?

What items did I miss on this list?
