I was around 6 or 7 and I loved Are you being served and Mr Humphries.



(Very dated but one of the first Gay characters on TV I think).

I remember asking my Dad about Mr Humphries and he told me he was a "Woolly woofter" and I said oh like Uncle Mark? and my Dad said no Uncle mark is not gay...He came out that year.
It has never bothered me people being gay and actually enjoy characters in the media who are Gay.
So when did you know about gay folk and while you are at it has anyone got any other gay media icons?.
Obviously this is a question for everyone but I know gay folk would have always known about gay folk lol.

I think I was 4 and went over to my mom's friends house.
It was some kind of party thing. Mostly lesbian vegetarians.
Bad food.. This is what I remember..

This was a LONG time ago.

For me it was just something normal.
I never knew it was supposed to be weird.

hippies.

Lol..

Kids don't care they understand love.
Pity adults warp there views to turn them into bigots though.
I remember when my Uncle came out and it did cause a massive rift in the family, us kids were the only ones who thought" Who cares Uncle Mark is Uncle Mark".

I was a sheltered child and didn't find out until I was probably 13 or 14. I was horrified that a man could find another man's hairy butt attractive.

Funny, I was over at my mom's on the weekend and we were talking about this. She said that when I was 6 or 7, after watching an episode of The Simpsons, I had asked her "what's up with Mr. Smithers?"

I remember Mr Humphries bieng very camp but cannot recall when I twigged he was homosexual as well.

The other one that springs to mind is Larry Grayson



I missed the innuendo as a child.

When I joined ATS.

I came here for aliens and only find gayliens.

How many conversations about gay love can we have in a week.

It's kinda redundant. I don't talk about my sex life, keep that shiz private.

How many would make you feel uncomfortable?

At least we have proof of homosexuality.

Don't knock it till...

actually my gay friends say mostly they like juicy lips.

Just in case you wanted a new image.

Dude.. Girls find dudes hot.. Ever wonder how THEY do it? I wonder sometimes.. It's the same thing.

LOL

I think as a child you may have missed the point of homoesexuality.

I assume you have opened your mind a little since then

Okay, talking about gay love does not mean talking about sex. The only people bringing sex into any of these conversations are the ones against it.

Homosexuality still seems pretty gay to me.

I am pro-gay marriage.

The sex is the part that's gross.

ETA: Also, I am not against gays I am just not for them either.

I am indifferent.

I suspect gay folk have people like "I'm a leg man" or "A boob man" but different.
We all have things our eyes tend to fix on
.
Oddly enough it is a womans neck for me.
