Mayor Pete Doesn’t Read Gay Media
Here’s a story that talks about how presidential hopeful, Pete Buttigieg, never reads anything in the gay presses.
“I am what I am, you know, and there’s going to be a lot of that,” Buttigieg said. “That’s why I can’t even read the [LGBTQ+] media anymore because it’s all: ‘Too gay, not gay enough, wrong kind of gay.’”
You can read the rest, here. In a broad, general sense, I think this is another good example of how diverse gay men can be. Not all gay men read the gay presses.
However, the only problem is that you won’t get all the LGBTQ related stories you should be getting from only reading mainstream media. In fact, I pity anyone, gay or straight, who totally depends on mainstream media news. Unless there’s something to exploit or sensationalize, LGBTQ people are all but ignored by the mainstream media. For example, very few mainstream outlets have been reporting in-depth about what’s been happening with gay concentration camps in Chechnya. And that’s not the only story they ignore.
Rwandan Gospel Singer Comes Out as Gay to Find Dismal Results
Here’s another LGBTQ story from the global front. It’s yet another example of how painfully backward other countries are when it comes to anything LGBTQ related. And also an example of the discrimination other LGBTQ people are still facing in these homophobic countries.
Friends of Albert Nabonibo, a well-known gospel singer in Rwanda who recently came out as a gay man, do not want their names revealed. It is too shameful, one says. Another says he is anguished because his family knows he often used to socialize with Nabonibo.
Here’s more. Unfortunately, the story devolves for Nabonibo. He might even lose his job.
These stories always bother me the most.
