Out to Build Bridges


Out to Build Bridges

This is a GSRM (Gender Sexual Romantic Minorities or LGBTQ+) group.  But And straight men and cis-men are encouraged to join as well.

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.

Ill probably never come out to my parents, they both grew up in the 1950s and 1960s so they'll be too judgmental if I told them, but according to my sister they will still love me regardless

Pardon me, but how did I become a member of this group? Can people add you to a group that they would like to include you in? I don't mind - just trying to figure out how the site works. Thanks.

Investing in a Family Business?

My sister-in-law (wife's brother's wife) runs a very small bakery operation out of my mother-in-law's kitchen.  As far as I know, it is a sole proprietorship.  She sells specialty baked goods for everything from kids parties to holidays and weddings.  I don't even like sweets all that much ... but her products are phenomenally good. She's recently purchased a booth at an enormous semi-annual bridal show in town.  I have no doubt that she'll see massive growth after the first show ... possibly…See More
