    Oh, my gosh! There can't be anything better in the world.

    I love being two-spirited. I love art. I love looking a little outrageous. I love being able to touch men, to hug them and kiss them, put my hands on them. I love being able to look at another guy, admire his body and not feel guilty about it. I love being able to smile at a guy, while looking him in the eyes, and hope he thinks I'm gay instead of being afraid that he will.

    So what is your favorite part of being gay?

    Ummm...I'll take the obvious one-having sex with men (or, in my case now, man).

    I just love the connection we all share as gay men. First, the best thing about being gay for me is the sex, there is nothing like the smell two men make when they have sex, and the primal attraction between two men. I also remember the feeling of community at one of our gay film festivals here when the movie "Trick" was playing. The part of the movie where CoCo Peru locked herself in the bathroom with Gabriel and told the story of how Mark came in her eye and how much it burned, we all went crazy because we all knew exactly what she was talking about as gay men, cum in your eye really does burn!!!icon_lol.gif

    Personally, I'm a self-effacing homosexual.

    Experiences have not quite played out to be the most memorable or joyful ones. I suppose the same is true for any heterosexual relationship but I have found it to be very difficult in finding a compatible mate. But, I am just 20, so what the hell do I know of stable, long-term relationships.

    I like being gay for the super powers.

    It wasn't always that way. At first my expectations for my life were affected and it was hard to deal with the hostility. Once i got over the first and started feeling sorry for the hostile crowd, i started noticing the advantages. Your perspective is altered, you look at things from a different bias than the general one. You are constantly forced to challenge sureties. You define off your own back your relationship with the world.

    I consider this very empowering as dogmas naturally slip away and while you have to be careful not to replace them with hideous alternatives, you feel free. Free to love who you want and how you want. Free to relate to anyone across any divide.

    Oh, yeah, and the sex is good!

    It's to be able to understand the two genders and be special and different .. and to challange the nature laws and follow your heart and your desire and live the way you want dispite .. also we can experience two opposited kinds of sex .. if you know what i mean (we have two kinds of genitals)

    sundown... your enthusiasm is infectious! icon_biggrin.gif

    Its difficult to pick a particular thing... I love being "different" as I have never had the desire to "fit in". I love seeing a given situation from a different perspective than the one expected of my gender. I love the feeling of power and community when I am among my gay brothers, and the masculine beauty that surrounds me in those gatherings. I love the connection/bond between men. I love feeling free to express myself how ever I choose, and seeing other men do the same. I love the feel of another man's body pressed against mine and the warmth and safety of being held by two strong arms. I love being expected to speak my mind, call things as I see them, and have others agree with what they are too afraid to say. I love the smell of a man... whether fresh from the shower or sweaty from sex. I love the taste of a man... his skin... his kisses. I particularly love the rich heritage of my two-spirit Native American ancestors... as well as the heritage of the gay community as a whole. I love knowing that my gay brothers will hold me up when I am weak, as I will hold them up when they are weak...

    I could go on and on...

    And yes... the sex is incredible! icon_wink.gif

    Being gay isn't a priority in my life, so to the this is like asking, "What's you favorite reason for having blue eyes?" Ummm...they're blue (I prefer guys with brown or green eyes mostly). I get the spirit of the question though.

    Being gay, and meeting the right guy, gives you a chance to double your wardrobe if you both wear the same size icon_smile.gif

    This doesn't work for me though since I prefer guys shorter and slimmer than myself...but it works for a lot of other guys.

    That wardrobe thing works in a lot of straight relationships too.

    I love being a homo because I am born that way. If I have another life and to be reborn as gay again, please let me reborn in United States.

    joescorpio1970Being gay, and meeting the right guy, gives you a chance to double your wardrobe if you both wear the same size

    As a gay man in a relationship with another one who is about the same size as me, I must admit this is indeed one of the nice perks! icon_lol.gif

    In all sincerity though, the best part about being gay, for me, is that I finally feel love and acceptance for myself as a person. It's so incredible to me that once upon a time, admitting the fact that I was gay was the worst thing that could have happened to me. The self-hatred I had about being gay ran very deep; it kept me silent and dishonest with myself for a long time. I cringe sometimes when I think about how I denied myself a lot of happiness and pleasure as a young person just because I thought I couldn't live with the truth about myself.

    What's so wonderful is that today, I can not only live with the truth about myself, but I can also say it's one of the things about myself that I have really grown to like.... and indeed love. It took a lot of work to get to that point, but it was so worth it. I honestly can't imagine being any other way, and I've never ever been happier being me. That, for me, is the best part.

    Oh my gosh! It's so great to hear other guys being excited about being gay. For those of you who don't quite get it because it's like having blue eyes, maybe you should examine what a wonderful blessing it is to have blue eyes.

    You see, I'm coming from over a quarter of a century of a heterosexual relationship, self-oppression, and self-loathing. My world is suddenly new and open and I'm seeing, learning, and experiencing things which are wonderous to me. Think of it like a blind man suddenly being able to see.

    I'm like that -- now I want to know all there is to know about color. I want to learn what things are that I have only been able to experience through others' descriptions.

    It's magic, boys! A whole new world of wonder, and I'm learning to find my place in it.

    I hate to go on and on, but I have to tell you that initially, I hated God (or whatever supreme force you may believe in) for making me something that was loathsome. The other day, I was walking down the street, and was suddenly overwhelmed by incredible gratitude. It was what I call a "Joe" moment (Joe vs. the Volcano, as he stands on his trunks in the middle of the ocean watching the moon rise like thunder from the eastern horizon, and he throws his armws to heaven and says, oh so simply, "Thank you, God, for my life."
    And I say that to God, now -- "Thank you, God, for my GAY life -- thank you for making me gay and all that it entails, both good and bad, for all the wonder and power it contains."

    Keep on telling what you like about being gay. You're incredible people, mystic, alive, spiritual, and able to revel in your own sexual power.

    The sex bit is good. It can be so exciting.

    And the friendship bit is wonderful. I don't think I'd have such great friends if I was straight. I know my straight brothers and straight male friends don't seem to be able to have such strong friendships with other guys unless alcohol and/or sport is involved and then it seems to be on such a superficial level.

    I think that depends on who you are redheadguy.

    My best friends in the world are straight. I can mess with them, and we have a pretty damn deep relationships, I consider them my brothers.

    And happy about being gay? Hmmm, I like guys, especially muscle guys. And feeling a hard body is truly a pleasure. But there are so many things about the gay community that I hate.

    So it's a love/hate thing for me.

    I too love being gay, much for the same reasons as stated above. The only thing I dislike about being gay is that too many other gay guys dislike being gay. If everyone was happy being gay my gay world would be perfect.

    "Glad To Be Gay" was originally written by Tom Robinson for a London Gay Pride march in 1976. An out gay songwriter, he subsequently formed the TOM ROBINSON BAND with three (non-gay) musicians and - inspired by directness and confrontational style of The Sex Pistols - the band released a four-track EP called "Rising Free" on EMI Records in Feb 1978 which included the song.

    The EP made the UK Top 20 - reaching 18 in the UK singles chart within a week of release. BBC Radio 1 refused to play "Glad To be Gay" choosing instead the less controversial opening track "Don't Take No For An Answer". However, listeners to rival station Capital Radio voted it No.1 on their Listeners' Hitline for six consecutive weeks.

    The song was subsequently included on the North American release of TRB's "Power In The Darkness" album later in 1978. The song has been performed - with the lyrics occasionally updated - ever since.

    The British Police are the best in the world
    I don't believe one of these stories I've heard
    'Bout them raiding our pubs for no reason at all
    Lining the customers up by the wall
    Picking out people and knocking them down
    Resisting arrest as they're kicked on the ground
    Searching their houses and calling them queer
    I don't believe that sort of thing happens here

    Sing if you're glad to be gay
    Sing if you're happy that way

    Pictures of naked young women are fun
    In Titbits and Playboy, page three of The Sun
    There's no nudes in Gay News our last magazine
    But they still find excuses to call it obscene
    Read how disgusting we are in the press
    The News of The World and the Sunday Express
    Molesters of children, corruptors of youth
    It's there in the paper, it must be the truth

    Sing if you're glad to be gay
    Sing if you're happy that way

    Don't try to kid us that if you're discreet
    You're perfectly safe as you walk down the street
    You don't have to mince or make bitchy remarks
    To get beaten unconscious and left in the dark
    I had a friend who was gentle and short
    Got lonely one evening and went for a walk
    Queerbashers caught him and kicked in his teeth
    He was only hospitalised for a week

    Sing if you're glad to be gay
    Sing if you're happy that way

    So sit back and watch as they close all our clubs
    Arrest us for meeting and raid all our pubs
    Make sure your boyfriend's at least 21
    So only your friends and your brothers get done
    Lie to your workmates, lie to your folks
    Put down the queens and tell anti-queer jokes
    Gay Lib's ridiculous, join their laughter
    "The buggers are legal now,
    what more are they after ?"

    Sing if you're glad to be gay
    Sing if you're happy that way, hey
    Sing if you're glad to be gay
    Sing if you're happy that way, hey



    SING IF YOU'RE GLAD TO BE GAY (2004)

    The LA police are the best in the world
    I don't believe one of these stories I've heard
    About pretty policemen in leather and jeans
    Showing their leg through a slit in the seams
    Seeking out superstars, leading them on
    Then running them in when they start to respond
    But back home in Britain, we're equal and free
    Except when the case is a Labour MP

    Sing if you're glad to be gay
    Sing if you're happy that way

    The Liars of Wapping are really the pits
    Commissioned by bigots and written by shits
    They plaster their pages with bingo & tits
    Then add all the scandal and slander that fits
    They rip into victims destroying their lives
    From anglican bishops to footballers wives
    From internet perverts to lesbian mums
    If it's vicious and fiction it's... there in The Sun

    Sing if you're glad to be gay
    Sing if you're happy that way

    Now young Matthew Shepherd was killed in the States,
    And left alone dying, and tied to a gate,
    For being a pretty and gay 21
    He was murdered by thugs who thought killing was fun
    At his funeral Christian love showed its face
    As the bigots all picketed, twisted with hate
    But God doesn't hate fags you sickos, it's true
    He even loves people as evil as you

    Sing if you're glad to be gay
    Sing if you're happy that way

    For 29 years now I've fought for the right
    For people to love just whoever they like
    But the right-on and righteous are out for my blood
    Now I live with my kids and a woman I love
    Well if gay liberation means freedom for all
    A label is no liberation at all
    I'm here and I'm queer and I do what I do
    And I'm not gonna wear... a "straight" jacket for you

    Sing if you're glad to be gay
    Sing if you're happy that way, hey
    Sing if you're glad to be gay
    Sing if you're happy this way

    If that was intended to dampen my spirit, think again. I'm aware of what my brothers in past days went through, and what many of my brothers these days still go through.

    My friend, I would rather go out a card-carrying gay man than to live as a liar and a fake "straight" man.

    I'm STILL so thankful that I'm a HOMO, and that God made me this way.

    So when you hear of the gay bashing of a 52 year old man in Tacoma, Washington, KNOW that I wouldn't trade my life for anything, and I died PROUD and I died OUT.
