NOTE: Real World was down this week because of some minor technical difficulties. But luckily blogger makes it easy for those of us who are kinda drama to get things back up and running. Sorry, hope you all had a good weekend!
Shelle Note: First of all, Meeko is so awesome. I found out about him through a kind of online game show we both did earlier this year. He was one tough competitor and basically I rode his coattails, then like the competitive person I am, I snaked him at the end. Obviously he is a forgiving guy. I'm so happy to have him here and have him introduce himself in only a way that he can.
I am a 28 year old gay male. In September, my boyfriend, fiance, partner, husband (not legally), best friend (although I won't tell him that), love of my life (are you getting the picture here? LoL) will have been together for five years! It hasn't been an easy five years. There have been tears, their have been smiles, their have been good times and bad, losses and new beginnings, but we've stuck together through thick and thin. I wouldn't trade it in for anything in the world.
We're like any regular couple you may know, with one exception: We're both men. We have plans, hopes, goals, and dreams for our future. We want to have a family. We want to grow old together. We want to love each other. We want to be happy. But enough about that for now . . .
I don't like when my friends introduce me as, "This is Meeko . . . He's gay." I mean, I don't go around saying, "This is [insert name here] . . . He/She is straight." Where am I going with this? You see, being gay is only one part of who I am as a person. There is so much more to me than my sexual preference. I'm a son, brother, uncle, friend. I love to cook, read, write, blog, work on my crafts, spend time with my pets.
I guess my main goal/purpose as a contributor here is to be a liaison, of sorts. I know sometimes people have impressions or ideas of a group of people as a whole . . . And I would like to help dispel the ideas/prejudices/stereotypes that come with being gay.
Is there anything you have ever wanted to ask a gay person?
Have you ever had a question you wanted an answer to, but were too shy to ask?
Here's your chance. :)
