How are you holding up this holiday season, guys? Who are you spending Christmas and New Year with? Do you have a boyfriend or a husband or a partner? For those of you who are going to celebrate it, how do you celebrate Christmas? Is it with your family, or chosen family?
Some of us here in the LGBTQ community dread the holiday season. We dread going back home to our family—especially when we are bringing our significant other—because of homophobic family members. Some of us, on the other hand, no longer have families because we have been thrown out of the house when we came out.
And then there are those of us who remain in the closet, which means we are dreading going home for the holidays because we are the family member who are “perpetually single.” But, the truth is, we have a partner of five years already. Only, we can’t introduce them to our family because to them we are “straight” so time and again we endure the questions as to why we are still single. Meanwhile, our younger brother or older sister would bring their girlfriend or boyfriend of six months to Christmas dinner. Of course, we are happy for them, but at the same time, we can’t help but think about the inequality and the unfairness of the situation. It’s no wonder why some of our LGBTQ brothers and sisters choose not to go home and spend the holiday season alone instead.
Anyway, if you are in the closet and everyone is with their family during the holidays, worry not, there are many things that you can do in order to celebrate. Why don’t you have a Christmas dinner with a friend you’ve met on Adam4Adam? If you’ve been talking with each other here on A4A for months on end already then maybe it’s time to have that first date.
Or, why not do a huge feast for yourself at home, complete with candles, music, and champagne. I personally like to be alone, I’m not a group kind of guy, so being alone with my dog at home is much nicer for me than being surrounded by 25 people from my family that I have nothing to discuss about and nothing in common with.
You can also choose to chat with guys on Adam4Adam via video call.
