Radd saidThe one time I worked in a predominately gay environment was not pleasant. Gay men tend to act bizarre when grouped together. They revert to behaving like the gay stereotypes and start acting like bitchy women. NO THANKS.
Yes, I've seen that, and it's not pretty. But I've also seen another and better aspect of that.
Lots of guys have to put on a straight mask all day at work, to conform and blend-in. Even if they're out to co-workers they're still expected to behave in the regimented company mode for male employees.
When they're "off-duty" with gay friends they can relax and let their hair down. Whether at a club or bar, restaurant, or a private home. And then you see them being fun & witty, creatively entertaining as only gay men can really be. Maybe a bitch here or there, but a lot more's going on that I really enjoy.
Compared to most dull straight men my own age I encounter, the majority of my gay counterparts are original & agile thinkers, who invariably surprise and often delight me with new ideas and slants on things I hadn't previously considered.
At the same time, I wouldn't want a job involving only gays, either. I can choose my friends, but I wouldn't necessarily be able to choose my customers. And really, this applies to any occupation that involves dealing with the public, regardless of gay or straight. Trust me, straights have their share of jerks, too.
