My Life Is Fucking Fabulous!

    So, OK, I asked my partner today if he has anything on our calendar I don't know about. After a string of gay fundraisers last week I was kinda tired. No, he says, nothing at all. I sighed in relief.

    Then the phone rings a few minutes ago. We get an invite to a commercial dinner yacht cruise tonight. OK, I reluctantly say I'll go. Then they phone back, saying they were told the cruise is all booked-up (nothing like checking first before calling us).

    So they make hard reservations for next Friday's cruise, to which we agree. As a compensation, we're going to our favorite Chinese restaurant tonight with them. And BTW, they're straight, not gay, and have offered to pay for everything tonight, as well as for next week's dinner cruise.

    Naturally we won't let them. But I dunno, since I came out some 16 years ago my life has been fabulous. It's one party, dinner, function & gala after another, until I'm actually kinda frazzled by it all at times, and wish I had some quiet time. It's one of the reasons I run to the computer whenever I can, my way of chilling out after too much activity.

    I think if you totally jump into the gay world you'll experience the same thing I do. Mostly in larger communities with a visible gay population, and if you don't have one you'll need to move.

    I'm so puzzled, and sorry, for guys who say they're miserable being gay. I have to assume they haven't figured it out yet. Because for me it's absolutely fabulous! icon_biggrin.gif

    Thanks! Believe it or not, I do it not to brag (I'm too old for that here, certainly not with all these hunks), but rather to encourage other gays to do the same things as me. I hear too may young gays here being down on themselves, when they should be upbeat and happy.

    Being gay is a wonderful gift, that US society largely disses. And so we diss ourselves, and overlook our advantages & strengths. Gay men may be politically persecuted in the US by the Right, even hated by our own families, but we are the most talented & creative men in our society.

    Never lose sight of that, never lose hope, never give up on yourself. You were born better than they are, stronger inside and more talented than you yourself may realize, and you will ultimately prove it if you can discard their straight misconceptions about you.
