    In this thread, list things that all gay men should know about.
    I will update the OP with everything that you all list. If you have any more category suggestions feel free to post them.


    General Advice- A biohazard symbol tattoo is used in the gay community to represent HIV. If a guy has this tattoo it means he is positive.

    In hindsight the cover model looks like those pants are almost up to his armpits. Also, the era of huge shirts.icon_rolleyes.gif

    Ugh, just delete all that celebrity and vacuous media crap. Put that in your guide to being a teenage girl.

    I think William Mann's books, at least "Where The Boys Are" were supposed to be sort of a guide for the novice to "gay culture," in novel form. (I am still looking for details on the pre-clubbing workout he describes, that is supposed to pump up all the right parts.)

    There's obviously a great deal of difference between being a homosexual than gay. Thank god Im the latter.

    Crying because you're not gay is gayer than gay. It's queer.icon_eek.gif

    Just because you don't know any of them doesn't mean it's not relevant to the younger generation. Every person I listed is gay/lesbian or gay-positive.

    Unspeakable Love: Gay and Lesbian Life in the Middle East. It's a good thing to read than celebrities making douch bags... Profiting their names in exchange of stardom. It's overrated. icon_idea.gif

    I've been saying I'm not particularly gay and this thread now proves it. I did wear a red feather boa.. Once. Didn't go well with the beard (although I do have the wrinkles and age spots for it now). All my BFs and LTPs looked better in dresses and heals (not to mention leather) than I did.

    I've been following her for over a year but I don't really see how she's a gay icon?
