So I know I'm quite late for Bi Day (I totally missed it, I'm a bad bi), but I just wanted to show off my new Bi pin. I wanted something subtle, yet pretty and fitting my overall cute aesthetics, and I found this one to fit all of those parameters:




It's from an Etsy shop called Zealo Apparel, and they have different variants for all the pride flags, and I think they're cute as hell, so just in case you guys are interested to check yours out, there goes:


(yes, as you can see, I quite love enamel pins, oops)

Do you have a lot of pins, besides these ones? 🤔

This thread should have exploded during spotlight. Where are all the gay gamers?
Too busy being gay and finishing RDR2.

I finally got John Marston not looking hideous. Cut his ugly long hair, applied pomade and gave him a Tom Selleck mustache like I did with Arthur. His voice is less annoying in the epilogue also. I still like Arthur better overall.

Trying to run through some of my backlog before the fall onslaught hits and failing miserably.
We're all playing the onslaught of Switch games tbh
People on Era play games?

Apparently they all died with Neogaf.

I'm not the person you quoted but I do have a lot of enamel pins myself, a portion being random ones I ended up with as a kid that don't hold much value to me lol. But I prolly have like 50 or more of the things.
I thought to obsess over pins. But I don’t think I really want to anymore.

I bought some really nice Sailor Moon ones, but I’ve been afraid of using them in case I get clocked and assaulted for it.

They also don’t really go with anything I have, either :( how do you display yours?

I keep most of them in a bag/case as I only use a handful at a time, the ones I do use I have 1 on my jacket with a couple round buttons and then I have some on my backpack. I like most of them but a few are just random freebies from baseball games or shit like that, I'll throw a pic up in a bit so you can see what I mean.

Another Toronto gay! Welcome, Magnus!

Do you know of any good Halloween events/parties going on this year? Last year I went to the Halloween warehouse party hosted by Backdoor, but it doesn’t look like they are doing it again this year 🥺 apparently Church St shuts down the Saturday before Halloween and it’s just a massive party, which I’ve never actually done before. My friends seem unanimously agreed on that, but I like organized events in a specific venue lol.

Hey all, I recently came out as Bisexual - and it has been pretty painless and encouraging coming out to friends.

Any tips on coming out to a parent who has been pretty outwardly homophobic through out your lifetime? It's my dad specifically. He's probably pretty typical of a lot of older black dads unfortunately. I've pushed back over the years whenever he has said stuff, and he has certainly softened and gotten better over the years, but there's certainly still glimpses of it.

He's one of those people who will support and vote for all the rights in the world for LGBTQ, but it all breaks down as soon as anything LGBTQ enters his personal sphere. I'm adamant on not hiding away any part of me from anyone, but at the same time, I'm low key scared to death in this case haha
