    I remember the first person that I ever went out with used to use the term: MOTT to describe the gay community. He used to say that being that the gay community is diverse in so many ways, he thought the describing us as a tribe made more sense.

    MOTT: Member Of The Tribe





    Terms come and go.....do you have any that you particularly like to use?

    Funny story, I remember the first time I heard "friend of Dorothy" when referring to gay men. I was probably 14-15 at the time and just starting to accept myself as gay. Oddly enough, I thought that was Dorothy as in Dorothy Zbornak! I had already known that the Golden Girls were gay icons, haha. I didn't know it was referring to Dorothy Gale till a few years later.

    I hear people say, "he's family" a lot. Hardly ever hear "light in his loafers" any more. Sometimes, "unusually festive," or "oddly festive."

    I had an older gay co-worker who didn't just come out and say he was gay when he started the job. He sat next to me and would tell me about whatever problem he had living with 'his roommate''. Another day he would say 'his partner', and another day he talked about 'his buddy at home'.

    One day I said I was confused and asked if he lived with three different men in one house or are they the same dude. He laughed out loud and told me about his partner of 25 years. We got along pretty well after that.

    Yeah, "family" is what I sometimes hear and use. But then I'm nearly 64, so not in cultural sync with most of the guys here.

    When I was a boy at home I remember my late Mother telling people that I was "artistic" and "sensitive" (I'm about as artistic as an Army Drill Sergeant). Those were buzzwords for gay back then. I later learned she always knew I was gay, long before I knew it myself. icon_confused.gif

    I never heard Member Of The Tribe. The very first term I heard was family and I later discovered 'A Friend of Dorothy' after reading a article.
