What if we talked to straight people the ridiculous way we talk to queer people?
Don’t get me wrong, straight people are great… I mean I have LOADS of straight friends. But the way straight people talk to people who identify as LGBT+ can get a little tedious at times.
In our fabulous queer existence, we’ve all at some stage encountered one or more of ‘these’ comments.
“I went through a ‘gay’ faze in uni.”
*sees a queer person holding hands with their s/o* “Oh my god, I think what you’re doing is soooo brave”
“Was it hard telling your parents you were gay/lesbian/bi/trans?”
“But how do you guys… like you know… do it?”
“I’ve always wanted a gay BFF!!”
“You’re gay! Do you know my friend Stacey? They’re also gay!”
Cue eye roll.
And to be honest straight culture *straight* up confuses me…
Sometimes it feels like we don’t know whether to laugh, cry or self implode.
But, we’re a resilient bunch, witty, smart and god damn hilarious. So sit back and watch this video because let’s face it… we deserve a good laugh.
