Why are gay people in America so open & in your face?

Gay people in America are so open & loud & in your face about being gay. They have gay pride parades, gay bars in the middle of cities out in the open, gay resorts, gay restaurants, gay theaters, gay hotels, even gay churches with rainbow flags on them for all to see. Why are gay Americans so loud & in your face about being gay?

You only notice the ones that are.
Ive been doing service work for over 24 years in Minnesota which has a large GLBT population. many live quiet unassuming lives & even laugh at those that perpetuate that stereotype

its an ideology; they think that they have a real legit debate & they dont. they are pissed because they arent black so they cannot have `movement` as awesome as the civil rights movement

I guess for safety. Probably, they mark their turf to send a message to other gays:
`Come to this neighborhood/bar/church & you won`t get a brick to the face from some inbred redneck. `

Because they`ve been discriminated against for centuries & since now they are actually being given rights & are more comfortable expressing themselves, that`s what they`re going to do.

You`re gonna have to deal with it :

Hi. Yes; There is gay people all over the world; (serious) It is ok to be gay as long as you accept yourself being gay is ok; gay people can be aggressive sometimes yes, but(!) just don`t get the hell near them ok? You do not want to mess with them.

Oh well Good luck man!

have a nice day!

they`re proud I guess; why not? I don`t see a problem with it. Why do christians have to have crosses on everything?
Plus you sound like someone who wouldn`t be too happy about a bunch of gay people coming to your bar, so they have places for them that they`ll be safe at far away from homophobes

Same reason there are hetero-sexual bars where people go to try to get laid, & same reason hetero-sexual people openly date & have dinner together, & why singles groups have picnics, & cruise ships advertise singles cruises. I hope this answers your question

1. you are so wrong, the only in your face ones are ones you can TELL are gay, as for the others you wouldn`t know they were gay.
2. the ones who ARE in your face are easy to spot. Imagine you are gay but(!) not the big you can so tell type; Ok you are at bar you see guy you like you chat for ages feel a connection, find out he`s straight. BUT if you start talking to a real gay stereo type then you KNOW he`s gay, no awkward finding out he is straight

I think because some feel they were repressed for so long that they still have a`chip on their shoulder` & others just want to let other gays know it`s ok to `come out`.

Most gays spend most of their life with a `secret`. When they finally are able to tell someone, It`s letting go many years of being bottled up; As with most things that are bottled up, it explodes!

Maybe once society becomes more tolerant, & people don`t need to hide for half their lives, things & attitudes will settle down

They were more in Europe. In florence in train station.
In sweden;
But I believe is nice to have society that little by little
is working in peace.

I believe also this is a transitional phase since they had to be hiding for a lot of time. It`s their time; I think in future this would not be happening.

Im pretty sure there is a large majority of people in America who are `in your face` I wouldn`t select them to being gay.
When you go through a struggle of acceptance & finally seep through I test you not to be loud & most of all proud of who you are.
There making up for all lost time they missed because of people like you

Because people are so anti-gay in America, it`s their way of `sticking it` to the ignorant American. People treat gay people like they are a different race, & like it it so wrong. This is the 21 century, & gay people should have every right as straight people. gay PRIDE! (I`m not gay)

It`s to spread idea that it`s okay to be gay (I`m not saying it`s not); lot of people are still in closet & scared to come out.

Not all of them are like that.

The closeted conservative republican ones frequent YA politics, where they post their daydreams of `glory holes` & barney frank

Beacause they live in the land of the FREE & home of the BRAVE.

theyre FREE to `parade` themselves around, telling ppl who they are- & BRAVE to do so;

haha.

Personally, I`m not gay/lesbian & I`m not supportive of it but(!) It`s not like theyre doing anything to hurt you; so who cares?


It sounds like you have a prejudice issue. NOT COOL! :(
