This is one of the few websites where I feel comfortable being who I am which is a masculine gay man. As many of you know the gay world is portrayed and influenced by a lot of stuff some of us here don't really affiliate ourselves with. Plus I don't really care for labels, I don't want to call myself a bear/cub, twink, or whatever. I am just a regular dude who happens to like dudes.
Well today a regular dude who happens to like dudes has made history. Jared Polis has become the first ever openly gay man to be elected to congress. He is a succesful, masculine, good looking guy who lives with his partner of 4 1/2 years. I am extra proud (his partner is an animal rights activist).
Jared Polis will serve as a leader and a role model for LGBT youth everywhere. I know I am inspired and I am truely proud to be gay today, and I definitely don't say that every day!
