A Gay, Aboriginal, Introverted Male (And Not At All What You’d Expect That Means)

Leave a comment

“The strong guys we pretended to be are not the strong men we have become. Being gay didn’t weaken us. It’s irrelevant.”

“Back to stereotypical assumptions. I’m probably not like that Gay guy you’ve met before at work or in the playground that you’re used to being your fabulous gurl friend. I do admittedly have my moments. Also, I probably do not conform to your expectations of an Aboriginal male. Yes, I’m in touch with my identity. Yes, I know what it means to me to be Aboriginal. But please do not exceptionalise your behaviour toward me based on your stereotyped assumptions.”
