10 Reasons Why I Love Being Gay!

Gone are the days when we used to be stereotyped for being gay, when people would look at us like they wished we would just die. These days we can walk around the neighborhood stealing glances at guys and even look at others who I consider cute straight in the eyes without other people paying attention.  I love being gay. I acknowledge that I am a gay guy and proud of it and having come out more than 10 years ago, ever since I was in Year 8 at school. I would also like to acknowledge the fact that being gay has played a big role in shaping me into this confident, committed, hardworking, and successful person that I am today. Many people believe that being gay entails having a tough and difficult life. To some extend yes, but life is not that easy for the straight people either so in reality the same but different to straight guys who have to worry more about family, wives, supporting others and more. All factors considered life is what you make it and according to me, it is about looking at any negative things and try to turn them into positive ones. Here are reasons why I love being gay.

Serious Gay Men

 

Being gay is most amazing as I get to experience the joys of both worlds, but for that to happen, I first had to accept and love being gay myself here are my top 10 reasons why I love being gay:

1  Appreciation of both genders:

Unlike most straight men who would not dare to admit that another guy is attractive, it goes without saying that I find guys attractive and at the same time appreciate attractive women. One great advantage of being gay is that I am able to smile at both men and women whom I find attractive and tell them to their face, ‘you are good-looking’ without necessarily having to worry about what they think of me.

2  We make the best friends:

While we gay people love straight women, we would not trade in being gay. This is due to the fact being a Singapore Gay is like the better of the two worlds. I am capable of borrowing the best from both feminine and masculine stereotypes. We make the best friends. We are dependable, fierce advocates, we tell you what you want to hear, when you need to hear – although sometimes we can be bitchy, dance and celebrate with you, fight for you, and hold your hair when you are puking. If you are female we will protect you from other straight men, and if you are a straight male protect you from other gay me, take you out, cheer you up, and most importantly, we will always be there for you when you need us.

3   People consider my insults a joke:

I would be like ‘Bitch what the fuck are you wearing?’ and she would be like,’What, Where?’ and I would be like ‘No no, Bitch I am just kidding! You f*ckin look gorgeous!’ and my fag hag would laugh it off like it is the best joke she’s ever heard. Now imagine what would happen if a straight guy told a woman or even his girlfriend that. The things we can get away with is why I love being gay.

4  Power to mock other gays:

One of the funniest benefits of being gay is that I can joke about my sexuality. This is great because it usually eases anxiety and awkwardness in defensive conversations, and even lightens the mood very easily. This is only restricted to gays because if a straight person makes such remarks, they will appear rude or homophobic. In our case it is just being comedic.

5  We make others laugh:

I personally believe we gays are angels send to earth to cheer others and make them laugh. People easily get amused when I try to do certain things in a manly way. As a homosexual with gay actions and voice, it is interesting to see other people amused when I do some things. I have friends who occasionally request me to speak with a very deep voice, and they easily laugh their heads off when I do.

6  Positive negativity:

Another one of my reasons is positive negativity, which I interpret as allowing those to hate you. I will not lie to you that everyone is going to like your newly found status. I personally had my fair share of condemnation, but what did I do? I channeled that into a smile and motivation to progress, and even become a better person.

7  Travel:

Compared to many married straight people, we make a lot of money and have a lot of disposable income. Probably the main reason is because, unlike the straight people, we are not tied down by certain expenses, particularly those associated with having kids. As a result, we look for other recreational ways to spend it, such as gay traveling. I personally do travel a lot. It is my hobby. I have traveled across all the five continents and it is such a great experience.

8  Part of a cause:

Believe it or not, I really love this reason. There are very few people in the history of our universe who have managed to go against the administration and succeeded. We as the gay community are a good example. Being gay automatically incorporates you to our major cause, which is to try and change the perspective of other people and even help or teach them about homosexuality; and so far so good. How cool is it to be part of history?

9  Meeting new friends:

Initially, I used to be scared of the thought of opening up, because I believed in doing so I would lose all my friends. The truth is this is likely to happen, but along the way most of my friends, including those I thought would never cope with the idea were cool with it; in fact, most of my friendships strengthened. In addition, I got to meet new people, especially those who shared the same status as I and built new friendships and relationships.

10  Loving who I want:

This is another great reason why I enjoy being a gay guy. I get to choose and love who I feel like, with the ability to genuinely love him without pretending. Being gay to me means I get to go through my journey of life with another guy, whom I adore, besides me. I believe this tops every gay person’s list.
