A gay ol time on Saturday

Out Loud is the Cairns gay and lesbian choir, or LGBT as they call it. Similar to a BLT but less fat and more beef.
The happy chaps and chapesses are raising funds for new musical equipment and are holding a garage sale this Saturday. This will be held at the Resource Centre, 290 Draper Street.
It's the old Pizza Hut restaurant, on the corner of Mulgrave Road. Head down from 9am to grab a bargain, or someones cute arse, if you dare. You may even catch a rare glimpse of Molly, the infamous Door Bitch.
If you have any unwanted items (excluding mother in laws or former city Councillors) that you'd like to donate for the sale, you can drop them off at the centre on Friday or Saturday morning. Telephone Cliff 0432 401 188 or call 4041 5451 if you want something picked up.

IT's so fasionably to be gay these days. I mean.. it's like you have to come out to your family and friends if you're straight!!!

Personally I have three friends that help out when they're busy. good for them I say.

I heard the choir at Pride day at the Tanks.. they were bloody amazing!

I think they should get a few events at the Civic theatre to wake this closeted town up.

Well, Sam, if you are my husband it's news to me! Look forward to seeing if you are worthy of that claim.
Hope to see you spending up big at the garage sale. The size of your wallet is the only thing I'm interested in.

Lotus Glen Quickie? Like a bit of captive action do you?

Shame on you Quickie. Go to jail and DO NOT collect $100!
All homophobes need to know that being gay is not a choice. No one can be impressioned into it. On the other hand, homophobia is a choice, the choice of ignorant, insensitive and bigoted people.
You interact daily with gays and lesbians. They are your teachers, lawyers, chefs, waiters, nurses and business owners. Get over it and move into the real world.

Ah, Mr. Quickie - I'm afraid an 'E' for Logic - you weren't listening in class, were you?, & where were you when they handed out the compassion gene?
Lotus Glen, eh? Well, do we just send the Cairns gays, or those on the Tablelands as well? Down to Tully or Townsville? Cooktown mob? Bamaga? Mer Island? Or perhaps all the gays in FNQ, or do we make it all of Queensland? (This could be some party folks). OK, let's herd ALL of the gays in Australia - we'll fit in Tassie's, & hey, we could see if NZ wants to donate a few too - into Lotus Glen.
However, you're now talking a town several times the size of say - Canberra. And what an amazing, interesting, funny, intellectual, artistic, compassionate & wonderfully looney town it would be. Great food & clothes & music & arts. I bet the current Lotus Glen boys would find their world a whole lot more interesting than at present. But we'd have to have separate burbs for lesbians, & trabsvestites, transgenders...bis, of course. But how's about those with XXY or XYY syndromes, hermaphrodites.. Oh, & do we herd disabled gays into their own suburbs too, & sort them into categories? Gets complex, eh?
[The more I think about it the better it sounds - when do we all move there, & where??? The concept sounds like a permanent Burning Man Festival.]
For you see Mr. Quickie, there is no such thing as Two Sizes Fit All in human sexuality. There are many many form & shades of colour amongst humans as the mind can imagine. That's what makes each of us unique, and interesting.
So, Quickie, please read Door Bitch's comments, just above. Read them
preferably for the next few days (or weeks, if you need to) then open your mind up & see how it feels. Aahhhh, that's better isn't it?
One more thing Quickie, an old friend used to use the following fairly often. It's good to ponder: The Other Side of Disgust is Lust. Perhaps Big Ted above has hit the nail on the head?, a la Mr. Freud.

Oh Lilly lilly silly pilly ...

folks who take it, (or want it), up the excretion hole aren't gay ... they are a perversion of the law of nature.

You know, that law that keeps life as we know it, keep on keeping on.

And nature does not provide a dual pleasure/excretion hole in any other mammal/animal that I know of.

Please enlighten me if you know of one ... otherwise ... off to Lotus Glen they should go.

Isolation ... that will eventually kill the perverted gene.

Where did this word "gay" come from anyway???

Well Quickie - The term gay was originally used, until the mid-20th century, to refer to feelings of being "carefree," "happy," or "bright and showy"; it had also come to acquire some sexual connotations as early as 1637.

The term then began to be used in reference to homosexuality, in particular, from the early 20th century, a usage that may have dated prior to the 19th century.

In modern English, gay has come to be used as an adjective (occasionally even as a noun) that refers primarily to homosexuality. By the end of the 20th century the word gay was recommended by major style guides to describe people attracted to members of the same sex. At about the same time, a new, pejorative use was visible in some parts of the world. In the UK and US, this connotation, among younger generations of speakers had a non-sexual derisive meaning equivalent to rubbish or stupid (as in "That's so gay.").

Arent you glad you asked?

Now if all the Gays are off to Lotus Glen Im going to have to go to as it will be way too boring here in straight town.

Quickie, you must have gotten an 'F' for Biology at school mate. Try looking up 'Cloaca'.

Thanks for the zoological anatomy lesson Wendy.

I must confess, I wasn't thinking of our fine feathered friends when I asked my question.

You've got my vote when hard hat Anna calls time out.
