Are there many Solo homos?

I was wondering if there were many gay chaps on this site?

A couple of regular posters who act often like babyish "girly-men" Eye appear to be raving heterosexuals! Sticking out tongue (rather to my surprise), and in order to not jump to conclusions again I thought this would be a way to ascertain who is who.

So, to kick things off...I am gay Laughing out loud

William,

I kind of like Elijah's posts, but he seems more like MSM than gay. That might explain his answer to Mindy's question. Personally, I don't really wear either of those labels; it's more of a gender thing for me. I read Sullivan from time to time, agree with him sometimes, and generally liked the article that you linked to above. Out of pure curiosity: roughly where in Canada are you located?  I am in the Toronto area.

I guess I ought to sound off

The question was posed nearly a year ago, but...

I recently joined SOLOPassion, and I am queer.

Mindy, I'm gay, and no offence taken at the question. Ask your gay pals "what does 'gay culture' meant to you?" and you will likely get your underlying why question answered without offence. It's not like you are asking them, "So why do you poofters hang around together and do your nasty, weird, poofter thing, and eat your nasty foreign poofter muck and have your nasty faggy Mardis Gras?

As for Mr Peeved, he is over his head.

Why pick up this thread?

Ptgymatic's picture

I've been looking over the forums for what's interesting. I've always been curious about homosexuality. Wouldn't dare ask the homosexuals I know, afraid to offend.

Mindy

I see

So what I perceive as gay culture is an off-shoot of gay society, which is perfectly understandable. I didn't know gay culture was "waning." Makes sense. Interesting. Thanks for the info.

I suppose, William, if you simply have to go through life playing "The Victim" then you can invent things which do not actually exist in order to justify everything.... Eye

Why is there no uniform gay culture?

William Scott Scherk's picture

Mindy, you can safely ignore Moonberry's peevish non-answer.

Landon gives a clue to why distinct gay 'culture' or subcultures arose, diffused and persisted in Western lands. When homosexual behaviour was reviled, illegal, and viewed with contempt and disgust, gay people, both lesbians and male homosexuals, found and developed and maintained distinct precincts and codes and practices that allowed them a certain freedom unavailable in the rest of an often hostile world.

In recent years, gay people's acceptance in the broader community has made such separate precincts much less necessary.

To make a rather simplistic analogy, consider other minority subcultures that persist and sometimes wane . . . gay people aren't born to gay families and taught a gay language or celebrated for being examplars of traditional gaiety as might be other minorities within a cultural milieu. Gay people built their own 'families' and supportive networks in opposition to uncomprehending birth cultures, cleaved to places that allowed them to be home and safe and understood without effort. For an older gay cohort, gay culture was a refuge and a playground.

Today, gay culture is waning as a separate, guarded enclave. In my country, Canada, for example, there is broad toleration of gay sexuality, gay liasons, gay marriages, gay adoption, gay whatever.

For a lengthy review of the waning of a uniform 'gay culture,' see Andrew Sullivan's article "The End of Gay Culture" -- his is a perceptive eye, albeit restricted to American lands.

I don't mean gay society, but gay culture, or subculture.

favourite quotation from 'Fight Club' is when Brad Pitt says "Stop trying to control everything and just let go" Sticking out tongue

However, back to the topic...

Thank you for the contributions which have been made.
Quite an eye opener in parts, although rather a shame at the heterosexuality some of you profess.

It's an odd movie but I managed to get a laugh or two out of it. He may play the tough guy on screen but you can see it in his eyes, he’d be kind in bed. I guarantee it. Wow we really may have elaborated on this point for far too long.

However I do believe in the South Park philosophy: 'we're all a little gay.'

Actually, I'm one of those "stealth gays" who are invisible to all but the most sensitive gaydar. I thought I was bi for a while, but then I realized that I was just kidding myself.

Am not gay, however I am far more interested in gay issues than any straight man should be.

Ironically though I also own the Madonna "Music" album.
