Gay Disabled People With Respect to Being Gay Bottoms
This is a real life piece written by a gay disabled guy speaking from his own personal experience, and there’s an interesting twist. He’s also a nice writer. I like his voice. He explores the concept of whether or not most gay disabled men are bottoms. I know nothing about this and I’m only linking.
It wasn’t until my boyfriend brought up the idea of me topping him (Which I tried, thank you! More on that in a later column, I promise) at the age of 28 that I began to wonder: Was I totally off the mark? All my life, I had assumed bottoming was every disgaybled man’s sole role. Surely, if it was Christmas, we’d all be the receivers of the ahem, gifts, right? I thought. Call it being naive. Call it being sheltered. Call it having years of internalized ableism (OK, fine, it was totally that).
Here’s the link to read more. The comments that follow are interesting, too.
Pete Buttigieg’s Inner Civil War About Being Gay
He’s more about Mayor Pete Buttigieg and his personal struggles with regard to being gay. I’ve read a few other things he’s said and I like that he’s keeping it real. I don’t think there’s a gay person alive who can’t relate to this.
“What it was like was a civil war because I knew I was different long before I was ready to say that I was gay and long before I was able to acknowledge that that was something that I didn’t have power over,” Buttigieg said
