Just a quickie. I don't really know if I sound gay, and while I speak a little strangely with a curious accent, I don't have the classic gay voice that can cut through 100 decibel music on a dance floor. I've mentioned him before and no need to say who it is again but there is an ABC TV reporter who doesn't hide that he is gay and does have the classic gay (we used to call it faggy) voice. This is a manner of speaking whereby you can straight away know someone is gay.
His reporting is good, and was especially good during our terrible fires early this year and his voice and diction are crystal clear.
After ten years of not reading gay media, I have started doing so again online. Here are some links to stories I found interesting, the first being the inspiration for this short post.
Disturbing but a good result.
Go girlfriend. She didn't pay a 1 million dollar fine imposed by Russia.
Gay men are always so nice and kind. Nah, not always. Aside from bitchy queens, some are just nasty pieces of work.
And if that is not enough reading for you, try the post by John Gray of Wales about unkind comments when he wrote a quite positive post. It really is hard for straight people to understand what lives were like for gay men of my age and older. I was lucky that I worked in a job with much diversity and I didn't have family or cultural problems, but still, I remember the culture in my early life that made me feel bad about myself. Ok, this is a proper post, not a quickie.
