Look at that picture. Is it any wonder some people are afraid of gays?

Remember, I'm gay so I can say this :) I have nothing against celebrating who we are, being festive...... but on days like this when we get the most publicity, I think we scare people with this stuff.

Shouldn't we be sending a message of normalness, averageness? You know, we aren't all freaky clowns and I'm just afraid that we're feeding the media a big stereotype here.

People like 'Queer Eye' because again, those guys are acting over-the-top, being comedians. It's a step above dressing like clowns, but still I sorta see the gay image in modern culture as being accepted only for entertainment value.

Blacks were portrayed much the same way for many years in this country. In entertainment, they were either being comical stereotypes or playing maids, or at best they were shown because they were good musicians and singers. It took a long time before we started getting some realistic portrayals of black life.

Are gays going through the same stage? Must we be merely entertainment for a long time before we're accepted into the general populus?

What we need is a black lesbian president. It's a shame Whitney Houston has that drug problem.

I should be more careful in asking questions, but ...

I wonder what Chad would think of this topic???

Maybe I should not have asked.

To be fair, I don't have any problem with it - straight people dress just as garishly for Mardi Gras or, in the UK, the Notting Hill carnival. Whatever floats your boat as far as I am concerned.

Now, if they dressed like that to go to work.........!!

I don't have a problem with it, I rather find such pictures funny.

But some gays make such a big deal of their sexuality.
As if being gay is their personality, like... they're not themselves, they're just gay and they want everybody else to know.
And I think that's why some people get annoyed.

But each to their own.

I'm probably a bit of a hypocrite then. I do seem to mention my sexuality quite often for some reason, and I do act kinda wacky sometimes...

Yeah, what the hell was I thinking posting this anyway? Sorry. Nevermind.

LOL

There's nothing wrong with it. But there's certainly more about you than your sexualitly.

IMO who deals with his/her sexuality like it's a flag is a sort of provoker, or has some problem accepting it. i don't like this way to behave.

its peoples perceptions and own prejudices in most cases

its also press and photographers convientently not portraying the vast and diverse people who celebrate pride--get the shot that will cause the most reacton....

as someone said--had that picture been from mardi gras-- it would be ok--people would laugh--comment how fun that mustve been--festive festive!

because it was some gay guy and at pride-- its suddenly something the worst of the worst, shameful, horrible etc. i would be shocked and surprised at some peoples thoughts on this thread..but i am not... just be honest enough to admit its your own prejudice not everyone elses--

however if you actually take the time to understand and learn about pride--then perhaps your eyes to understanding it will be opened a bit more and you will be less judgemental and some of your own misgivings on it will diappear

wtf is 'normal gays'???? someone help me here on this one--

Good points IE. You're right. If there was just a couple of sharply dressed guys in suits, it wouldn't make for much of a picture... although the guys could be kissing, that would be nice :-P

I would just like a realistic portrayal of gay life. Like an overweight guy living in a trailer in Kansas with a cat, who hasn't had sex in 10 years, has no local gay friends, basically no life. That's what gay is to me.

LOL

good posting, Iron Eagle :)

Drs. DAJA, you have entered the danger zone now.
You only started to respect Freddie because you found out he was bi? Oh dear.
Does that mean you do not respect bisexual people? Does that mean you respect people until they tell you they are bisexual? And then? You run for cover?? Now who's a hypocrite?

And I'd like to add, I've thought about why gay people tell others they are gay. (not everyone does that immediately, btw) But perhaps it has something to do with the fact they would know right away how people react to it. Like Drs. DAJA for example. And then the gay person can move on and not waste time on people who are not worth it.
