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

Great point, Chris. Without all the superstitious crap we've all been immersed in since birth, sexuality would be exactly as controversial as right- or left-handedness. (Of course those fun-loving religionists used to claim left-handedness was the work of the devil too, and forced people to change their behavior. My granny was left-handed, but her Catholic school made her write with her right hand.)

I love that video, Daniel, and the gentle way they speak. And of course sexual orientation is there even when sexuality isn´t there. When I compare with something like handedness I know how true it is.

Loren, I agree with you.  I imagine that, given his accent and age, he has a lot of history, a lot of water under the bridge so to speak.  People often dont know, sexual orientation is there even when sexuality is not there.   I commend Davey Wavey  for interviewing him.  For a lot, maybe most, young gay men, old age and old gay people are avoided at all costs.  I spent my career taking care of mostly older folks, and helping them gave back as much as I gave them.

It probably means a lot to him, Daniel.  You and I both know that the coming-out process is as individual as the person doing it, and comfort levels span the spectrum of human personality.  For whatever reason, he felt he was ready, and my hat's off to him.

I wonder what it means for someone to come out of the closet as gay after 90  years of hiding that fact?

Wow guys, I free-associated a little too much on the topic of glitter ashes, and your comments, before I looked it up.  Somehow my instant thought was, those were cremated remains of gay people, mixed with glitter.  I am so glad that's not what it was. 

However, seeing what the glitter ashes really are, I'm relieved they are just weird rather than profoundly disturbing.

Carl - Yes, sometimes it seems true that the love that dare not speak its name has become the love that won't shut up.

It will work now, I think.
