1. We double our wardrobes if we pick our partners carefully
Yes, doubling your wardrobe when you get to date a boyfriend that is your size – and that happens often – is one if lucky things we gay men encounter. Try that being straight and you enter an unknown and possibly confusing territory.
2. We can try out strange hair styles and no one calls it a midlife crisis
Want to go blonde or have blue highlights? Not a problem when you’re gay – try it all and no one thinks you’re trying to feel young again. Everyone knows we have the quirkiness built in us.
3. We can splurge on ourselves without people thinking we’re self-centered
You really need that lavish vacation in the Bahamas or a weekend in London, right? Of course you do, it’s normal to enjoy life when you’re gay.
4. Cher, Madonna and Lady Gaga sing to us
We know they’re the biggest divas and guess what? They love us too. They’ve even built their empires around us. We don’t mind, of course and so we live in a happy gay bliss.
5. We never withhold sex
Have you ever met a gay guy who withheld sex for any reason? Of course not. We as men understand that it’s needed for our everyday existence.
6. We’re creative
Leonardo da Vinci, Oscar Wilde, Karl Lagerfeld, Yves St Laurent, Pedro Almodovar were/are all gay. And they’re just the tip of the iceberg. We’re one creative lot!
7. We have always new coming out news to look forward to
Who came out from the closet today? That’s something we can look forward to every single day. How many straight people have got out from the closet in the past year?
8. We can spot our kind in a crowd
Isn’t it fun to have superpowers and spot another gay guy in a crowd? Yes, gaydar is a real thing and we all got it. That’s why we always know beforehand which of the celebrities or your neighbours is gay. Or maybe it’s like Jack McFarland said: “There are no straight men, only men who haven’t met Jack.”
9. We have great taste
What works with what and what doesn’t is right up our alley. And don’t you even try to tell us otherwise because that tie does not go with that shirt. And don’t get us even started on these shoes!
BONUS: We got Gay Packs
We even got our very own monthly gay subscription with great underwear and beauty samples chosen just for us. Take that, straight world!
