Hello everyone!145 posts and 120 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.
Today I come to you with the next edition of my world famous LGBT+ General serial.
I come with an announcement this time, something suuuper duper cool!
I'm nonbinary! Five years after coming out as trans (give or take a few months) I have discovered a new path of my identity. After a good long time considering things and talking to other nonbinary people in the community, I was directed towards a few different female-aligned identities that might better fit how I feel about my gender and whatnot.
To make a long story short, I was told about this one identity called "Nixera" which defines itself as "An identity comprised of both genderless and girl-aligned aspects. These aspects can be experienced either simultaneously, fluidly, or through fluctuations. Intended for those who feel both connected and detached from womanhood and for those who have difficulty distinguishing their alignment from their gender." Basically, I vibe with this identity and feel that it better encapsulates my feelings about myself than just "I'm female".
That said, my preferred pronouns have not changed, nor have my priorities in terms of my transition. For those who don't know or can't remember, those pronouns are EITHER She/Her (very obvious, everyone is aware of these) OR Ara/arach/arachs/arachself. Basically use whichever set you feel like because I'm comfortable with both, but if you really want to make me happy, use the latter.
All right, that's enough about me in this header, please enjoy the thread.
-EVERYONE MUST READ THE OP BEFORE POSTING IN THE THREAD-
This thread is all about LGBT+ so you can talk about your experiences, coming out stories, things you've done or taken part in, at cetera. Really just anything you want to talk about. If you want, you can even just hang out and talk in a safe space.
Please keep all arguments and major discussions out of this thread. If you see something someone said that you would like to discuss in detail about, please make another thread. Any other major discussion points can make a thread on /townhall/.
Please keep in mind that this is a positive environment. When responding to people, use affirming language rather than challenging language. In short, do not try to deter people from their courses of self discovery.
Discussion of dysphoria should be kept in the realm of personal experiences and helping people through those feelings if they have them.
Also if you are not LGBT, you are welcome in this thread, however do not talk over the people who are LGBT. You're more or less guests here, allies or not, so please act like it. I know pretty much all of you are good people and wouldn't even think of doing anything, but it's important to say.
Terfs, transmedicalists, and anti-Mogai are, as always, not allowed.
More additions to the rules of conduct may be added in the future or future threads, but for now that's about it.
I would also like to point out that if you would like to use this thread as a general "hang out" thread, you are welcome to do so. Posting here does not require you to stay on topic of LGBT issues or anything like that, just be kind and courteous to those who do want to use the thread for that.

I don't typically have anything to contribute to this thread.
But one of my last riders this morning was kind of interesting. I got a call from the person who called the ride, and I was told I'd be picking up his friend - who was currently walking west along the main east-west highway through town. Where I picked him up, he was a 40 minute walk from where he started, which was the Greyhound station.
The guy is from Baltimore. He's homeless. And he fancies himself as a social media influencer. He goes by the name "The Gay Nomad". Apparently he was kicked out by his parents, ostensibly for being gay, and now he travels the country making the best of his situation and enjoying life. He seemed a bit quirky in person, which is best explained in his YouTube "about" section as being Asperger's.
He has 114 subscribers on YouTube.
I'm glad he's enjoying life, but I'm also a bit worried about him. He seems quite naïve.

it's unfortunate, but a lot of LGBT people are homeless. A very large amount, actually. Same goes for people with mental illnesses or disabilities. Usually these things are connected, like with this guy.
It seems like he's trying to make the best of his situation, which is a good thing I suppose. Would be better if he didn't have to.

to whomever the anon i snapped at was. i apologize for being snappy and angry.
while i have my objections to the type of humor used was, i didn't choose to be diplomatic about it. i instead chose to be passive agressive and snappish. that was uncalled for
if you are reading this, i apologize for my actions. you didn't deserve me being a jerk.

I kinda love this comic and keep thinking about it.
God, Thorax introduced me to that artist, gray Folie, and all their stuff is really interesting and deeply raw
in that Night in the Woods kinda way. Thanks Honey!
But yeah, I do personally grow tired of feeling like I have to explain myself when I've never understood it myself to begin with. It doesn't come from a concious place within me, it's deeply subconscious, it's primal, it's in my impulses and drives and in my dreams at night and in my daydreams when my mind wonders sometimes. Its in my intuitions about how my body is supposed to work and feel. I just don't have any idea why though, I have never had any idea why, it's just what's been happening to me for as long as I can remember. I don't know why when it does happen in a dream it makes me feel as joyful and fulfilled and relieved as it does.
The fact that I can't explain it doesn't change the fact that I am still experiencing it. I can't prove I am experiencing what I am experiencing internally. It's unreasonable to expect anyone to prove their internal experiences with external evidence. Would it be reasonable for me to demand you prove to me that your favorite drink is your favorite drink with physical evidence, or to explain precisely and ultimately why you enjoy it before I can accept what you claim your favorite drink is?

look, i know this probably isn't what you wanna hear Mike, but
you don't live with your parents, yes?
if you do, then that sucks, and i hope you figure this out
but if you live on your own, then fuck what they think
you're your own person and they can find out you're pansexual when you feel like it
don't let their bullshit even factor into how you conduct your life and relationships

I don´t know why, dun wanna make people uncomfortable with bad memories if they have been thrown out from their homes as well.
People tend to find the dark sides of the warm heart stories that i seem to find and share. Then jump on me for posting such things. Anything ill post, do and say feels like dancing on a mine field, even when i start talk bout weather

You don't have to worry about that here. If anyone gets on you about something I'll go off on them.
It's a safe space, sharing warm hearted stories is part of that and if anyone has an issue with it they can leave.
