    Hey everyone!

    I recently moved from Russia to the States (New York City). I just was curious what American Gay Agenda is. I went to the gayest neighborhood of New York City – Chelsea - to ask gay guys what does the “gay agenda” mean. I typed everything on a camera.

    It was weird to ask random people on the streets the question: “Are you gay?”. You should see how they react on the video!

    You can watch the video from my channel on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/CuriousSergey

    Please, let me know what do you think, and what Gay Agenda means to you!

    I subscribed. What I learned from that video is definitely that the gay agenda should be a lack of fear on both sides. On the straight side an unfair stigma causes people to fear "gay" based on misconceptions and fallacies like for example: gays are pedophiles and gays are unapproachable ( like a leather master or a devilish drag queen).

    On the gay side, there is a fear to assert oneself as the antithesis to any misconception or stereotype that exist. I liked how the people who avoided the question appeared more off putting than the people who actually stopped and admitted to being gay. I'm pretty sure I can recognize a genuine "no," over a shrouded and shameful, "no". The shame needs to go because the over all attitude towards "gay" is changing today, but the fear to accept that change is palpable on both sides. The agenda should be to definitely raise the collective gay head up and empower it to ignore and prove wrong unfounded social stigma and misconception.

    It's most important for our future because the fear and shame those men who didn't answer felt is born of childhood socialization that stigmatized "gay" and shaped an nonconstructive view of their sexuality. What gays are doing right now, including pushing marriage, is working towards future generations that won't grow up hearing that it's WRONG to be gay, but that you can grow up, walk in public with your head held high, have a husband, kids, be as happy as anyone.

    With all that lovely stuff said, if I were asked such a question on a street here, I would definitely say, "no." Breaks my heart to say it, but I am definitely aware of my environment and the social stigma. However, a locality like Chelsea, I'd like to think I'd be aware enough of its diversity and social tenor that I would smile and say, "yes." The gay agenda should be to spread that ease all over the place and early in people's lives. If a gay in such an area would deny it even there, definitely denotes a personal shame.
