inuman said[quote][cite]mjime003 said[/cite]Ok, so I'm in Moscow, Russia for the next two months and I'm having gay withdraw...if that's possible. I have never really been anywhere that I see absolutely NO out gay men. It is really weird, and though I thought I would do fine with it, I feel so isolated. I tried finding the gay community, but there is no castro, hillcrest, wilton manors, dupont, or sobe! I even tried a gay club with some friends and it turned out be "gay friendly" as opposed to being actually full of gay people. Two lesbian friends of mine even got yelled at for making out there by the staff. Has anyone ever been to Moscow and know where there are actually gay men? I just want to walk the street and know there are gay men around, or drink coffee at a cafe and know that other gays are around, just to know they are there. Has anyone else experienced this in another city?
I know this is going to come off harsh and all but I think I need to say this.
Why do you feel the need to be around gay people?
Does it make a difference if your around them or not?
Do you experience a withdrawal from being gay when your around straight people?
When around only assumed straight people do you feel the urge to muff dive?
Okay that being said, way to go caslon for finding those resources for him
As a true blue homosexual. I live and work out in the real world, and not the gay world. This does not make One want to muff dive, and munch on the carpet, as I am 100% homosexual, no matter whom I hang with, or what community I mix with. My str8 mates don't want to suck me off coz they have a homosexual mate, nor do I fall in love with my str8 mates. i do sometimes wish I had of meet a gay guy like them.
I've worked for the gay community, and seen gay men do some horrific things. So I gave back my gay card, and went to work and live in the real world.
I also a few years ago. Sang with a gay chorus. I found lots of the guys had issues with hate, and spite, and the fact I was not there to have sexual relations did not help me either. So I withdrew from the gay community again, and now am more than happy to live in the str8 world, and community.
I live in a very str8 environment and don't see a lot of outwardly homosexuality either. In fact there was a bathhouse here, and overnight once the word got out, it was turned into a pile of rubble, because the str8 community did not want it in their community.
Now I did feel this was a wee harsh, as it gave the guys a place to go, other than the parks.
I did not choose my sexuality, but how I dealt with it, and what I do with it is my choice.
I have two men whom love me deeply, so I need nothing from the gay community at large. Not being a member of the gay community does not make you any less a homosexual. You just are not entangled in all the crap. Homosexuals have every right to withdraw from the gay community, as so much of it is about sex, and not friendship, or reality.
I also know Russia still is not a safe place to be gay in, and lot of men my age there well know the old days.
You don't have to agree with what i said,. But I have the right to the point of view I choose to have.
The gay community wants the right to do what ever they want, and if some one points out, hmmm. They get painted as being homophobic. Like if a str8 guy get upset with a gay guy at gym for going all bugged eyed at him.
I also point out to the str8 and bi community, all the misery they breed, and if the gay community did the same thing thing of the out cry.
people have aright to withdraw from the gay community. It does not make them any less homosexual, or wrong.......
Acceptance the gay community demands, yet I have found it at large to be so unaccepting.
I am a homosexual out in the real world doing good deeds. Being a positive member of the community I live. These action are transferred to the gay community. Yet I gave back my gay card. I did not choose to be homosexual.
