A Dig Extra:

The Politics of Gay Dating, The List.

  1. There are less of us.
  2. We grow up in an entirely an extremely hetero-centric world, we do not have the rituals, milestones, support, and precedence that straight people do.
  3. We are shamed for being gay our entire lives. So, before we can begin to love someone else, we have to learn to love and accept ourselves against all odds and without support. 
  4. A whole generation of gay men fell in the AIDS epidemic. We have no role models, no precedent, nothing to show us what strong, healthy, long-term gay relationships look like.
  5. t's either pornstars and bathhouse-queens, or it's the heteronormative lifestyle. Love is luck and it’s exceptional, and no one talks about that.
