The gay world is often represented as some sort of monolithic whole that has the same culture. That is a lie. It is actually broken down into a handful of substrata to which each gay belongs. Here they are. Just like the world at large may stereotype gays as mincing wrist flippers with great taste bent on giving everyone they meet a make over. A queer will tell you that we are all individuals and that those stereotypes are false and horrible.

The Real Reason Gay Men Don't Get Fat
You are a gay man who has been single far too long. I keep going week after week and no luck. Will it happen tonight?
For these animals, there is documented evidence of homosexual behavior of one or more of the following kinds: sex , courtship , affection , pair bonding , or parenting , as noted in researcher and author Bruce Bagemihl 's book Biological Exuberance: Animal Homosexuality and Natural Diversity. Bagemihl writes that the presence of same-sex sexual behavior was not "officially" observed on a large scale until the s due to observer bias caused by social attitudes towards nonheterosexual people, making the homosexual theme taboo. They must realize that animals can have sex with who they will, when they will and without consideration to a researcher's ethical principles. Sexual behavior takes many different forms, even within the same species and the motivations for and implications of their behaviors have yet to be fully understood. Bagemihl's research shows that homosexual behavior, not necessarily sex, has been documented in about five hundred species as of , ranging from primates to gut worms.
