We have lives, issues, fears and passions
We make mistakes
We challenge ourselves to be better people
We are heroes, demons and everything in between
We are you
Here we face our heroes and demons and try to come to terms with understanding the differences between archetypes and stereotypes and that the roles we assume to know in society may be subtly or uniquely different within gay sub-culture.
Every culture has its addicts, for some its a drug, for others its an activity. In gay culture, addiction is a major problem and combinations of addictions, especially to sex are hard to cope with. Finding balance in our lives is not always easily done.
With the issues of gay marriage so prevalent these days, we examine and re-examine what commitment is. Some would claim it is merely about procreation, but we know that is not the only thing it is about. It is about strength and respect and honor and love between partners of any gender, creed or religion. The joy we take in our partners can sometimes be overwhelming. To deny that it is any less important than any other committed relationship just because its between two of the same gender, is nothing but ignorance.
Society can sometimes place value on intelligence, but it can also bully us about it. For many young gay men, we are already bullied about our femininity or our lack of conforming to social norms. We sometimes hide ourselves away books and learning just to escape it, or worse yet, we never seek to educate ourselves because we feel it will give the bullies one more thing to attack us over. When we come out of the closet we think of things in terms of the physical and sometimes forget the mind. Finding balance of both is essential.
Seeking the highest level of spirituality is not a religious journey, but a journey of the heart and soul. Seeking that higher level hand in hand with a partner can only evolve us into greater spiritual beings on level of existence far away from this physical space we inhabit called earth
