    Why are gay men so hard to find in the south? I live on a college campus that I have heard has a large gay population. I still have yet to meet more than three gay guys and one I already knew prior to moving here. I just wanna know where the best place to find guys on a college campus!!! Also i know how to spell y'all i was just typing too fast and not paying attention!!!

    Many universities have GBLT groups, which sounds like it could be a good place to find gay people icon_wink.gif

    I know there's one in my campus. You could try that. I would think your university would have one if there's a large gay student population.

    Feel you there. I went to Tulane-- New Orleans, right? Right? Surely the stereotypical places will yield fruit. However! GLBT group was like eight people. Theatre department had one gay guy other than myself. Even the musical theatre dept. only had two. Got to say, the way I finally ended up meeting other gay guys was . . . well, I became an RA and the housing dept. had a lot, for some reason. But really, I just started meeting a lot of people-- friends of friends, co-workers, classmates, people who came to performances-- and met a lot of cool people of all kinds in the process. Guys these days tend to be pretty well-adjusted and the gay guys at Tulane were often frat guys, engineers, all kinds of stereotype breakers who didn't, for whatever reason, want to go to an LGBT group.

    Good luck out there.

    University of Alabama, huh? It's a big school. There has to be plenty of gay guys. Get involved in sports leagues and anything else that interests you.

    We're out there, we just don't wear name tags identifying us as queers--it would make it so much easier.

    Oh, and you should know that it's "y'all" icon_cool.gif

    Heh, are you surprised?

    Funny how much more I hear about the Green Wave now that I've graduated . . . I'd say knowing nothing about the team might be a telltale sign, but we are on a gay sports/fitness site, so . . .
