No, that’s not me.
I’m not Brendon Ayanbadejo (talk about a tongue twister).
But he does support my cause so I figured I’d give him some props!
I’m just a gay guy that’s living in a straight world, and apparently, my straight friends think it’s interesting enough that I should blog about it.
So I figured what the hell?
As I’ve come to accept myself for who I am I find simple issues come up that I never thought I would have to deal with when I was a kid.
Growing up I thought about living a successful life. Making tons of money, marrying a hot wife and having kids. You know, all that “normal” stuff. All the things you’re told to aspire to have.
Well, that whole dream came to an end when I realized, well, that I’m gay.
That’s not to say that I’m not going to get married, have kids and be super successful.
I sure as hell plan on it.
It’s the whole wife thing that seems to get some people’s panties in a bunch.
And hell, I get it.
It’s a different “lifestyle” (although I can’t stand it when people call being gay a”lifestyle”). It’s not the norm and some people just can’t quite grasp that people can be different in that way.
Or maybe they can…
It just takes a bit of adjusting.
And luckily, it seems to be happening at a fairly quick rate.
But that doesn’t mean that there still aren’t challenges for gay folks in their everyday lives.
There’s things that gay people have to deal with that straight people simply would never think of having to go through.
There’s thoughts, emotions and decisions that are, well, different and you’d never think of having to deal with (unless your gay of course).
Anyway, that’s why I decided to create this blog.
I want to have a platform to discuss the things that I come across as a gay male.
Things I would’ve never thought about dealing with, even after coming to terms with the fact that I’m gay.
And be able to talk with other people about the issues as I go through them.
My roommate (who happens to be straight) thought it would be interesting to see the world from a gay perspective. He thought I should consider writing a book but, well, that’s way too far down the road and this just seems like a more realistic platform to do the same thing.
Whether you’re gay and can relate, or straight and want to be able to relate or get some insight into the gay life, I hope that this blog serves your needs.
Oh, and I think I suck at writing. Figured this might give me some good practice.
