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.

We've probably all come across this idea: that a man is only a man if he's bedded a woman; the idea that the only "real men" are those who have put the wood in the particular hole.This is not…Continue

Even if it took me a long time to admit it, I am glad I did finally start coming out of the closet to people. At last I found out before I entered a relationship with a woman and ended up divorced as a result

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.)

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.

"I concur with salt. If it's a traumatic event we are discussing, then I would say take the steps you need to put it behind you. In other words, if you cannot alter it then it's probably best to drive on...just my humble opinion."
