Welcome to Gay / LGBTQI Atheists & friends!

I will be taking a reduced role at Atheist Nexus as of Oct 1, 2017. I will not be moderating this group after that time, and I will be re-zeroing most of my groups and comments.

That will leave this group without a moderator. Since this group was started by a member who hasn't visited Nexus for many years, it is not possible to select or designate a moderator. Instead, I will send notification to Br. Richard that the group will be without a moderator. It will then be up to him to decide how to proceed.

Since this is a popular group, I recommend that a member start up a new group for quotations, so that the members can continue adding and reading their favorite quotes.

Thanks and happy reading!
Daniel W

Damn!  St. Louis is the new San Francisco Bay Area?  Who'ld a thunk it!  What next, San Antonio?

from wikipedia, Perkins "reportedly had affairs with actorsRock Hudson and Tab Hunter, dancer Rudolf Nureyev, composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim and dancer-choreographer Grover Dale"...  I guess he wanted to practice until he found someone who could do sex that he actually did like.  Practice makes perfect.

It was rumored that Rock Hudson and Anthony Perkins had some flings.  Hot!

 

Admitting to having gay sex but saying you didn't like it...uh, yeah.  That's kind of like saying you smoked pot but didn't inhale.

large pasta shells stuffed with a ricotta/mozarella/parmesan/basil/garlic filling, covered in a spicy pasta sauce and baked.  I add slicces of garlic to the sauce and use a pecorno romano instead of the parmesan, I think it gives a more earthy flavor.

I think I need to take back what I said about Vidal's disdain for labels - this bio is more nuanced  "Vidal has consistently argued that the term "homosexual" has no validity, because human sexuality is too complex and diverse to be reduced to binary terms."  That's a viewpoint that I can buy into.  I'll have to apologize to Mr.Vidal.  Not that he would care.  He is an intellectual giant.

 

Strange, I thought Perkins was known to be gay.  Not that I follow hollywood stuff.

He could have been a model.  I think Marlin Brando was supposed to have similar thoughts about his own sexuality.

 

I don't understand why people generalize about everyone else's sexuality based on their own.  That includes Vidal.  So he's bi.  That's fine, no problem in any way.  There are also straight people, and gay people, and people in between.  Some people have fluid sexuality, some don't, and some are asexual. It seems narcissistic to assume that everyone is "just like me".

Thanks for the video, Sentient!  It's interesting and encouraging to draw parallels with modern issues for me.  Also, who was that man at 6:30?  What he said is applicable even today.  It's amazing he could say something so progressive that it still needs to be said 40+ years later.  I tried searching for his quote, but I only got 1 hit on reddit with no name.

That was an amazing video.  I tend to forget how things were back then. I was a junior in high school when this was broadcast and I was madly in love with my best friend, Bill.  Even though I was in love with another boy and engaged in homosexuality, it took me years after this to admit to being a homosexual. I rationalized it all by telling myself that I had some homosexual feelings, but that I was not a homosexual.  I was a good person and homosexuals were terrible people, so I could not possibly be a homosexual.  It took three years of therapy to recover from the effects of this type of propaganda and prejudice.  It amazes me how much has changed since then.  Thanks for sharing that video.

 

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
