I'm back from Pride.

It was an event that lasted from 12-3. Various booths were there, ranging from Planned Parenthood to Dr. Rainbow to the ACLU. Everything was free and it was for all ages. I got three new shirts, a bunch of informative pamphlets, pins/buttons, and I even made some new friends. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and actually ended up tearing up at the kindness of various people there. Me and my friend group were even pictured and filmed for an indie documentary that will be made about the making of Pride in our area.

I'm so glad I went.

Sounds like it was a great time! :]

I'm not in a safe position to be photographed if I were to go to our city's Pride, unfortunately.

I haven't gone in a while, maybe 6 years?

It really was!


Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. They should really adopt a system like some conventions have where you get a certain color ribbon or something that indicates if you want to be photographed or not.


I hope you're able to go again soon.

Looks like this thread has been quiet for a while but I'd like to post anyway. happy.gif

I'm a nonbinary/genderfluid kind of guy, and I don't really mind what pronouns people use for me. If you don't want to decide, he/him is fine. I'm pan I guess, I don't think about defining it much anymore, it just is what it is.

I also have fairly intense depressive episodes and I have to deal with heavy anxiety pretty often... I'm managing though. Been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and ADHD. I also suspect I'm on the autism spectrum but have yet to get evaluated for it.

Hi again, Gladion, I responded to your Intro thread.

Cool, you're a genderfluid person?

I think I am, I don't care much what pronouns someone uses for me and I feel as comfortable in a flannel shirt and overalls as I do in a skirt and heels.

I also live with depression with psychotic features and my second therapist and psychiatrist both thought I'm on the autism spectrum, so heh.

I have a Mental Illness thread that hasn't been used in some months too.

I don't know how to get people to post in my threads without being an attention whore.

Oh well.

I guess showing em in my signature will have to be enough.

My sexuality has been kind of an enigma for me for a while. I thought I was bi but I have no interest in doing sexual things with girls the way I do with other guys. But I do desire a relationship with a girl as they generally are nicer, kinder and listen better than a man does. But that's not all the time either - some days I'm basically sex-repulsed while other days I'm really into the idea. Regardless, I've been saying I don't have a sexuality, which works I guess, but I'd love a term for it.

Any resources for me, guys?

Hi, sublinket, I just googled "sexuality spectrum" and found something from UC Santa Barbara that may be helpful.

Overview of sexual orientations

There's lots of detail.

I hope this is what you meant.

Thank you for the reply! I've looked through the article and while I can't say I feel like any of the sexual orientations mentioned, I appreciate the help regardless.

I saw! :-) Thank you!

I am, I've waffled between agender/androgynous/masculine for a while but within the past several months I've settled into genderfluid. It feels comfortable, and that's all that really matters to me. Also, I think I replied to that thread actually! Back when I was first starting out at my first job, I think. Cool!

I've never been too active on forums honestly, but lately it seems appealing, so I'm trying to ease into it.

---

Also, hello sublinket! I hope you find something that works out for you. Even so, don't feel too pressured to label yourself! I'm sure you'll figure it out in time. :-)

hello! ovo

i'm nonbinary - i still feel somewhat aligned with my assigned gender, and that's why i can consider myself a lesbian, but most days i'd prefer to just not be associated with any gender at all. being referred to as 'she' makes me uncomfortable; i prefer they/them pronouns.

for most of my life i identified as bisexual, but like with a huge, huge preference for women, and it was only a year ago when i realized that my 'attraction' for men was more forced and not natural. sexuality can be a very confusing thing, and there's no shame in taking years to figure out what you are!

Hello Peryite, welcome! :]

Ah, so sexuality takes a while to come to terms with sometimes.

Good to know!

So a member of the transgender community at my college got pushed against a wall and bruised this week.

I hope everyone stays safe!

Hello! My name is Jackson. I also go by Peach and Fawn. I am presquegender, bisexual, and quoiromantic. My identity has been a source of pride for me ever since I discovered it, though it has also been very confusing and sometimes painful. The rest of my post is under a spoiler because it's super long.

Hello Jackson, how wonderful that you feel comfortable enough to set terms to describe yourself and that you have found someone to spend time with. :]

Hiya, guys, gals and non-binary pals. 👋🏻

My names Roxas, but I go by R, Rox, or Roxy. I am FtM, but I am still in the early stages of my transition to male. I still haven't seen the Doctor about starting my testosterone shots, but my Doctors appointment is set for next month in May; unless they miraculous have a sooner opening/cancelation.

I use guy pronouns, but if you make a mistake; more than likely I will correct you. I have a pet-peeve when people use female pronouns, even after saying I hate them. I would understand if you accidentally did it; because of stupid autocorrect on phones. 😌

Hello R, welcome to the thread!

It's been dead for some months, unfortunately.

Welp, as long as it's not a year old; I do believe, I just revived it a bit. I'm more of a talker with people I know, that understanding me.

So I'll probably chat here, than the Official Chatter Box. I just feel uncomfortable there...

I don't know how often this thread will get used, but as long as everyone feels comfortable.

I feel really bummed, I lost some writings I kept on a USB since 2016.

I kept them there because they were about LGBTQ+ topics that I don't feel ready to share with my parents yet.
