Get up from what you are doing and look at yourself in the mirror. Ask yourself what kind of gay are you? Are you a bear because you have a hairy chest and a beard? Are you a jock because you wear a jock strap once in a while and play softball? Are you a gaybro because you like sitting around with the guys and watch a game? Are you a gym dude or party boy? Is Madonna in your vocabulary?
If you have answered No to any of these questions, congratulations you are a member of what I like to call the Everyday Gays. This is the majority of us. We don’t fit into a specific category and we don’t want to.
We get up, feed and walk our animals, have some coffee, worry about world peace, wonder if we’ve accomplished enough at whatever age we are, wonder if we are paying too much for rent or mortgage. Worry about our jobs, our boyfriends.
For some of us we worry about our kids and how the world will see them because they have gay parents.
We wonder when the GOP will stop trying to shove us back in the closet. Yes people, we are the Everyday Gays.
