I find it really strange that when you’re in a long distance friendship or relationship all you want to do is see that person and being around them is the biggest most wonderful deal but there are people who interact with them
all the time, on the street and in the classroom and in the shops and it always makes me jealous because you want to be with this person so much and for everyone else they’re nothing special but for you they’re everything special

6: What are you looking forward to in the next week?

Oh man, I am looking forward to seeing a play tomorrow night, and the welcome event on Wednesday, and the OL appreciation night on Thursday, and Take Back the Night on Friday, and MAYBE Hot Mess on Saturday !!!

23: Did your last kiss take place in/on a bed?

That would be a negative (it was on a dance floor I believe)

68: Would you rather sleep with someone else or alone?

I don’t know if I have enough sustained experience sleeping with someone else that I could say I definitely prefer one over the other. But right now I am hella lonely and need to cuddle so someone else

Anonymous: Does calgary have a relatively large gay population? I've lived here for over a year now and it seems hard to find other gay people...

see, i always struggle with this questions

calgary lacks the gay “village” that a lot of other major cities of comparable size do. we lack an area distinctly known for queer spaces etc. so, people often have trouble finding where these spaces are (except at the two gay bars…which both kinda suck)

we do have gay people. i would say we have quite a sizeable population. but i think that as a city, the existence of these people is dictated by dominant conservative values of other people. we’re a pretty conservative city, but it’s getting better. but now, i think a lot of people are less vocal and more closeted. 

some of our best queer spaces are those that aren’t necessarily marketed as ‘exclusive’ such as some of the pop up events like hot mess, velvet cinema (a new queer themed movie night, monthly) and a weekly (or bi-weekly, i can’t remember) event at the pint on 17th. additionally, a lot of the community organizations/non-profits in the city create spaces and chances for people to share their experience (third street theatre, calgary gay history project, coming out monologues, outlink, fairytales, etc.)

if you would be interested to know more about things, feel free to message me off anon. thanks for an interesting question!

I’ve made it y’all

so the calgary gay history project had set a goal for their kickstarter campaign for a book at 16k and then they hit it and were going for a stretch goal of 20k and it ended at midnight, and i was just checking and they were 220 away from the goal, and i had already pledge 100 dollars, but…..

i just updated the pledge to 321 so that it is now funded to 20 001 dollars and they hit their goal and YEA I FEEL GOOD AND I AM SUPER INTERESTED IN THIS PROJECT AND PROUD TO BE DONATING TO IT
