Out to Build Bridges

Information

Out to Build Bridges

This is a LGBTQ+ group.  All men are encouraged to join, including straight men.

However, unlike the already established AoM group "Gay and Bisexual Men", this group is wide open, no privacy settings enabled.  

The overall purpose of the group is to encourage conversations between the straight and non-straight communities.  This already happens in AoM, but it is scattered.  And it can't happen in the private "Gay and Bisexual Men" group.

Debate is expected, but this is for building up bridges not tearing down people.

Main rule: don't be a jerk.

Need for sexual identification?

Recognizing that people are wired differently and that identity comes from identification with both feelings and behaviors, I’ve been questioning the whole issue of prefixed sexuality.  Considering…Continue

I am okay the way I am.

Accepting as they are people we accept as they are, but not accepting people we don't accept, should be an easy enough task for all of us!

I am getting so tired of guys trying to come up with weird reasons why some persons are not heterosexual.  Why can't we just accept people as they are?  (And in this group to be accepted I do not include pedophiles or persons who rape.  That is completely different from sexual orientation.)

I have decided not to come out to my parents. not yet anyway, I'm just not going to worry about it, since they assume I'll never be dating any women anyway

I'm glad to see that coming out to people is working out well for you so far.

I am still friends with my brother in law, despite outing myself to him last year. I told a few more co workers and one of my bosses from work last night. I'm glad to be out of the closet
Comment by Sir Edmund on June 4, 2015 at 8:08pm
I have still not come out of the closet to my parents yet, at the moment there is no need to, but I am satisfied with the way I finally told my sister and best friend in the past year

Hey Michael. Lots going on in RL as the concert season draws to a close, and I'm nearing the end of my securities licensing.
