Long read going viral among gays everywhere: http://highline.huffingtonpost.com/articles/en/gay-loneliness/ It's very good, but there's not a lot to say about it, is there? Seems it's just the way we are, no "solutions". None of the stuff about suicide, sex, and the gay scene shocked me, I just accepted all that stuff as trivial facts a long time ago, which maybe is shocking in itself. Gay life is cutthroat and many of us have high, strict standards. I don't see a solution there either: it seems as unchangeable, unpredictable and primordial as the weather or another force of nature. I'm not extremely experienced and haven't seen it all, but that's my impression. I also think the article does a bit too much to portray us as ruthless and competitive; speaking for myself, I've seen a lot more solidarity and candid, open conversations among gays than among straight people who obviously tend to be more conservative (to be fair, this wasn't in a club or "gay neighborhood" context but in a university context).This did shock me: This is... a lot.
