Negative attitudes and feelings towards gay people are palpable and visible no matter how many times society states they have accepted and supported individuals who identify as gays. Experiencing contempt and hatred have been normal occurrences for gays that they are having a hard time enjoying leisure activities that heterosexuals normally enjoy.
Most people who experience same sex attraction could not easily fit in with heterosexuals for fear of being judged and not being accepted for who they are. Due to this, it’s becoming extremely difficult for gay people to be around heterosexuals, let alone share the same interest and pleasurable pastime. Fortunately, there are leisure activities gay people especially those still struggling with their sexuality they could enjoy without being judged.
Go On A Gay Tour
Gay tours are a niche market by travel and tour agencies that have been successful in recent times. These tours are arranged in cities and countries with activities and establishments that cater to gay clientele. Some of these gay friendly travel and tours trips include participating in gay pride parades, sailing, activities for health and wellness, meditation and detox retreats, etc. The most important thing that these gay tours have is that the itinerary is consists of gay friendly resorts and holiday destinations.
Party In A Gay Club
If you do not have the resources or the time to go for a tour but still in dire need of some rest and relaxation, head over to your local gay club. You might think there is none in your neighborhood but you would be surprised. Some gays are hesitant to go to a club because they think they are not safe. But a club that makes its gay patrons feel safe and lets them enjoy and have a good time, its like a fantasy land.
Binge Watch Gay TV Shows And Movies
Watching TV shows and movies made for gays is not only entertaining, it would also be relatable. These shows and movies show the real-life plight of gays who are still not out, gays who are experiencing abuse, gays who are struggling with acceptance, etc. Having someone to look up to, to know what to do in a given situation could help those who don’t have anyone to talk to regarding their situation. Their circumstances might not be as exactly as those in the TV shows and movies but knowing that they are not alone is a big help.
Watch (Or Participate In A Drag Show)
Some might think that watching or participating in a drag show is too flamboyant and just playing into a stereotype. But the experience could be exhilarating because you would be in the same place as those people who share the same interests as you. You would have a grand time without the fear of being judged if and when you attend or participate in these shows.
Society might still be far to fully coexist with gays without homophobia. Nevertheless, don’t let this hold you back from living and enjoying your life.
