What Comes to Mind When You Hear the Word "GAY?"

What Comes to Mind When You Hear the Word "GAY?"

The word "gay" has been used a lot this year. Words are powerful and how they are used can impact a community, a group, or a society positively or negatively. I've witnessed and experienced the word "gay" in a variety of ways. In my youth the word "gay" was associated with negativity, shame, and words like "faggot."

Recently I stumbled upon this video where men aged 10-50 from all walks of life were asked what comes to mind when they hear the word "gay." As you watch the video pay attention to the words that are being used. Each person responds honestly and you'll be surprised how many associate the word "gay" with something positive.

Tears flooded my eyes as I listened to each word closely. As a 40-something "gay" man who was bullied as a kid it is empowering and hopeful to hear words like, "happy," "two men or two woman are in love," "fine," "equality," "okay," and "normal" because I can remember a time in my life when I was afraid to be "gay." "Things Do Get Better."

 

This is a great video to share with friends, family and co-workers.

HOW TO MEASURE

Kinkster NYC Sizing Chart

The best way to determine size is to measure one of your favorite fitting shirts first and comparing to our approximated size charts.

WIDTH: The body width is measured by laying the shirt flat on it's back, keeping it free from wrinkles, and measuring from one arm pit to the other arm pit.

LENGTH: The body length is measured from neck seam to the bottom of the T-shirt.

APPROXIMATE CHEST: Measure under arms around the fullest part of the chest. Be sure to keep tape level across back and comfortably loose.
