- Me: Wow navigating colonialism and being queer is really difficult when trying to decolonize because queerness is a colonial concept in language but my people have always had queerness but idk what we call it tho ha ha colonial crisis I'm crying.

What a night!
Tabled at queer prom for ULP. Then headed out to Boystown (it’s IML weekend) and instead of going to the white boy bars we head over to Circuito.
Didn’t make out with any boys. But I tipped some cute gogo boys and made a new friend who I may or may not be somewhat sexually attracted to. Not sure because it could be that I think I find him attractive when in reality it’s the close physical contact (we were dancing bachata and cumbia) that I crave/enjoy.
All in all, a great night.
I actually despise the term “straight-acting” more than anything else. Being a gay man is hard enough without having to constantly pretend to be something you’re not. It’s also a very deliberate choice of words. There is a huge difference between being masculine and being straight-acting. I really wonder how much you have to hate yourself to decide you want to pretend to be straight. Why would you want to pretend to be the person who made you feel like you have to pretend to be something else? Why would you want to pretend to be the oppressor?
Gender normative gay men have some fucked up priorities
One of my friends is whining about how Gay Day at Six Flags (which is now Out at the Park) has been moved to September instead of the usual day in June.
He seriously wants to start a boycott and protest.
This is the same guy who I can’t get to make it out to any of my queer protests.
How are we still friends? (oh right, we have gone through a lot together).
