Just following on from the Milk Festival thread, anyone here find the gay scene in Ireland shallow, false, bitchy and full of queens? I spent about a year just going to the gay bars and made a few good friends but went back out last Saturday for the first time in six months I went back on the scene and all I found was the same thing that drove me off the scene in the first place! Men trying to butch and queens screaming their heads off! Things like Milk, Gay Pride and everything else make life that little bit tougher for me, I want to lead my life without other people saying they represent me, why dont we have a straight parade down O Connell St.Why should we have a gay music festival, I mean really what is the point? We want to be included in society yet our actions make us look divisive. The scene as a whole while doing some good and promoting equal rights for us makes us out to be screaming fairy queens. My advice to any young person coming out, dont bother with it....
