Well, I suppose I have been playing Dragon's Dogma sporadically sometimes, and I haven't yet relinquished all claims to homosensuality/I'm not a monk!...

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
I don't have advice for this (my family isn't really relevant in my life) but I wish you all the best.

Kudos to discovering another part of yourself. Keep soaring.

I’ve actually looked into Pure before. I’ve never tried it though, and have just stuck with my fiber supplement (Metamucil), a light diet, and douching. Might give PfM a try though, if it’s been working for you?
Yeah, it works great for me personally. I've been using it for a few years now and haven't had to douche since shortly after I started it.

But, as I said above, everyone's body is different, so you shouldn't necessarily ezpect these results.

I flirted with a cute girl today at my unis queer bbq! I think I was successful? But I'm also a clueless disaster lesbian so I actually have no idea. She smiled a lot, sat with me and my friends when I offered, and let me add her on discord?

I don't do this form of social interaction much at all and am extremely clueless. Gonna invite her to hang out this weekend. Fingers crossed?

Pure is similar to taking fiber supplements really. I've had bouts where I didn't need to clean out at all or where it allows me to have a really quick cleaning. Then theres every other time where I forget to take it and eat like a top and well, looks like I'm topping trick.

Atlanta Pride is this weekend!!!! Its going to be messy and I'm here for it XDDDDD

Back with another update to my situation, lots has happened in the last 5 months! (sorry for long ass post)
I'll start with May, my first relationship if you could even call it that died as soon as it became a thing (lasted 1-2 weeks), they went from being my closet friend to becoming a toxic jealous psychopath. They pretty much wanted me to stay in the closet and pretend to date girls to keep up appearances, so I had decided to end it pretty quickly before any of us got hurt... but it was already to late He had already threatened to end their life as me cutting them out of my life was me trying to isolate them as all the friends they had were actually my friends who only put up with his shit because of me.

June was a another hectic Month I decided to come out to my brother and Mother shit went down how I expect they would, they pretty much said I was confused and needed to get help there was no hints of me... but as the month progressed things seemed to have gotten easier, I had also told all my closets friends and work mates, they were all super supportive about it.

Late June I decided to make a tinder account and see who were the available bachelors in my area and was pretty much instantly matched with a guy, let’s call him Francis. After talking for about a week we went on a date, I was pretty nervous seeing as it was my first proper date of any kind ever and I had no idea what to expect, but the dude was really chill and down to earth. The date was pretty successful as he invited me to movies and dinner, which we did the following day, his company was amazing! We had our 3rd date the very next day at his place were he cooked me dinner and sang me songs on his guitar which legitimately melted my heart, he got me good with “Can’t help falling in love” by Elvis, he then introduced me to his Dad before he left and we proceeded to have dinner, then we kicked back in his room for him to sing some more and watch movies, instead we just ended up cuddling for hours, which was something I never had a chance to experience before, something so simple just felt so right.

Late July/early August where things were looking good, spending more and more time with Francis and after 3 weeks since our first date he had asked if I’d like to be his Boyfriend (of course I said yes), however this was when things started to get pretty hectic....

After celebrating the night before my birthday with him and having the best night/morning I’ve ever had! things started to take a turn for the worse as my Dad the only person In my immediate family that I wasn't out too at the time was getting suspicious, so I had decided that night I come out to him… It went as you’d expect from someone with a strong military/catholic background, he pretty much disowned me on the spot and told me how disgusting I was, the usually sort of jazz. The very next morning I decided to pack my things and move out of home, so I spent the next week with my partner on a little holiday retreat trying to clear my head space, which was definitely what I needed at the time.

It had been 2 weeks since coming out to my Dad and I had my Mum call me asking me to come home to have a chat with Dad to try and get things back together. I decided to man up and just sort it out and to my surprise my Dad has cool down a lot and asked me to explain to him why I was the way I was and how long I knew, after a long D&M he gave me a big hug and told me I was always welcome in his house even if he doesn’t agree with my lifestyle.

At this point in time thing started to look up again, Family was starting to come around, Francis was there to support me through this hard time and constantly reassuring me that he was in this relationship for life, but things never stay peaches and cream... Francis flew back to work as he does Fly in Fly to a local mine site in Western Australia and messages me saying he was having really back stomach cramps, but was sure if it was just something had eaten on the flight, but things progressively got worse and he had to be flown off the sight to a regional hospital to have emergency surgery as it was his appendix that had burst.

The surgery had initially gone well, but his blood pressure started to drop and he was getting pale so the head nurse had called us and advised it’s looking really messy and they’re not sure what was going on, at this point I had decided there was no way I could be away from him during this time so I had discussed with his mum that I’d be flying up to go see him. During the longest 2 hour flight on my life, I had finally arrived and went straight to see him and was greeted by his lovely smile and his tears from the shock of me being there, I ended up spending the next 6 nights while he recovered from the 2 surgeries.

Fast forward to the following week, Francis started getting a bit of discharge from one of his wounds, so he immediately went into emergency and was told he had to have another surgery to clear the sight of infection and at this point we finally got the biopsy results from the removal of his appendix and it was not what we were expecting, it seems there was a cancerous tumor which caused his appendix to flare up, but the doctors were sure they had completely removed it, but because his situation was so unusual they had to get a tribunal of specialists to review his case.

A couple of weeks later (September) we got the results of this review and have now found out it may have spread to the top of his colon and he will need surgery to have a portion of it removed, but his unable to have the surgery till January and they believe his body won’t survive the surgery as it going to be pretty messy … So that night we decided to go to his Brothers house and get a bit lit with them to try and cry out all our feelings out with his siblings.

While the future is looking scary I’ve continued to stay positive through it all for the both of us, we’ve still continued to plan our future together like nothing has happened and we’ve actually got 2 holidays to look forward to before he goes for his surgery. I have told him I will be with him through it all hand and in hand (he was worried I’d leave and even told me he wanted to break up with me to save me the pain, but then apologized for even suggesting the idea). we’ve been through so much together in such a short amount of time and I believe that has made us stronger in many different ways, we’ve already been planning things such house/wedding/kids to give us something to look forward to (honestly we spoke about this stuff 2 weeks into the relationship haha) I know this will be something we will look back on as just something else we’ve conquered together.

I know the cliche is things get better, but honestly even with all the ups and downs I’ve had recently they really do. Stay positive Fam and Thanks for reading my update <3

TLDR: Had a huge falling out, came out and then moved out. I found the love of my life, he finds out that he has cancer and things are still looking bright, just got to stay positive.

I have no idea if this is the right place to ask, but the other thread seemed kinda dead.

I've recently started dating a trans girl, and things are going quite well between us. We've come to a place where we're slowly getting introduced to family and friends, and I have some questions regarding this. Is it preferable to tell others about the situation beforehand, to avoid awkward or unwanted questions, or would it be easier to just go with the flow?

Don't out her preemptively. If she wants to be out, that's her decision to make. Just refer to her as she prefers to be referred. She doesn't owe them an explanation and neither do you.

Hey there LGBTQera. Male B here.

I'm coming out to a large group of friends tonight. They're the first Important People I am coming out to outside of my family. My wife and daughter surprised me with gifts for the occasion and ho boy, now it seems pretty, pretty real. So maybe I'll just have a heart attack before I get over there.

Any words of advice from the wise? I've done lots of reading and rehearsing.

Oh yeah. Hi everyone.

I think my ignore settings keep me from seeing when things get posted here and I get distracted and kinda forget to post in this thread.

I got on aniexty meds and Lexapro recently and things have been feeling better. I still have major panic attacks but the Xanax handles them easily. I had blood work done and confirmed that my thyroid is out of whack. But they found that my liver counts are high so now I'm waiting on the results of an abdominal ultrasound. Getting old sucks. I don't drink that often so I'm scared something could be really wrong. Just gotta be patient and try not to panic more, I guess.

Any of you peeps watched the HBO show "Looking"?, I have only seen the first episode but I like it so far. Who woulda thought that the main actor in "Mind Hunter" was gay IRL?

We talked about it briefly when it first aired. Seemed like the general consensus was that it was boring and just kind of...there. I thought it was decent.

Hmm, well I was just scrolling through HBO's offerings and the thumbnail caught my eye. I am known for liking boring shows so... I guess that's why I am digging it so far!

I liked its chill vibe too. I think that, because there's a general dearth of lgbtq shows, people were disappointed it wasn't more substantive.

Looking was quite nice, watched while it aired. The only thing that I gave it flack for, is its depiction of video game dev, which was... ridiculously funny in its inaccuracy at times. But otherwise, it was still enjoyable, just not THAT amazing either. It's a nice enough ride.

I personally can't wait for The L Word: Generation Q in December!

ive always wanted to watch the original but I’ve read that the ending is unresolved and that the reboot isn’t going to address it so I don’t know if I should skip it or not.

ive always wanted to watch the original but I’ve read that the ending is unresolved and that the reboot isn’t going to address it so I don’t know if I should skip it or not.

I've watched The L Word a very long time ago now, I know I enjoyed it a lot and was quite the stepping stone to me realizing I was bi, so I remember it fondly. I still think it's worth the watch, although some things might not have aged well either. I don't quite remember how the ending went so I can't quite answer you fully on that one, sorry. It's been a while!

No worries! I'll probably give it a shot at some point. Though I've never even finished Queer as Folk (I always get to the third season and stop) so I'm not sure if I could finish this either, lol. I have a rough idea of the plot points from people I know who've watched it so maybe it'll be good background while doing laundry or something!

Hello everyone!

I have a few questions regarding Asexuality but I'm not comfortable discussing them publicly right now.

I really don't know who to ask, so I was wondering if someone here was willing to clear things up for me via DM's 😅

Has anyone here ventured into a gay establishment like a club or coffee shop on their own?, was it good or bad?... Would you recommend it?

I think it depends on the individual. Imo you have to be bold enough to ingratiate yourself to some stranger(s) for company, and/or be content or secure enough to possibly be there alone for however long you decide to stay. Personally I'd probably spare myself the trouble unless I'm going to a club for the music or something but ymmv.

Hello, LGBTQera, making the first post here despite being on a member of this site for at least a year by this point:

  • Your gender? Your sexual identity? (Preferred pronouns?) Transgender Non-Binary (They/Them)
  • Your sexual orientation? Bisexual/Gynosexual (Attracted to feminine looking people regardless of gender)
  • Where Are You From? Markham, Ontario, Canada
  • Where Do You Live? Same as above
  • How Old Are you? 29
  • Favorite Type of Music? Electronic/Techno, Orchestral (generally from video games pretty much though)
  • Profession or Career interest? None right now
  • Favorite video game(s)? Soulsborne games
  • What are your hobbies (other than gaming)? That's a secret

To elaborate about myself, I came to the realization about certain things regarding my sexuality/gender late last year due to a discord encounter with another user from this site. I have been on hormones for a couple months right now and some changes have been happening in that area. Anyway, nice to meet the rest of you, I'll probably start paying more attention to this thread.

Do you have fun on your own in a non-gay space? If so or otherwise, it doesn't feel any different, IMO.
Well it's funner to go out with someone... but I wanna go mainly to observe. Not so much participate, won't lie it would be cool to possibly make a new friend.

I would be cool being alone, not a problem. Like I said in my response above I mainly wanna see how it is and I would be open to meeting new friends. Not looking to hook up with anybody that's not why I'm going.

Welcome, unfortunately this thread moves really slow as of late. Hope that changes though!.
