Hi I'm very curious to know the opinions of gay men in the USA. Being a closet (sorry!) gay man in Australia it bewilders me how discrimatory US laws are against gay men and women It seems that people are more concerned about gay marriage than actually achieving equality, for example Australia is finally recognising same sex relationships and removing all discrimination from all federal law (http://www.ag.gov.au/samesexreform) yet gay marriage isn't recognised. Shouldn't the priority be on equality rather than marriage, sure it's important but I think being able to be gay and not be fired or discriminated against is more important than being able to be married.I'm very interested to see the views of actual gay men living in the US, it almost seems that they have to fight to survive to be who they are!
