Sex and Second Life

The Gay Friend

I am of the opinion and conviction that one has to adjust to every possible situation or environment exposed to when this is a foreign one, outside your comfort zone, in order to get the most out of your experience. Some people rather adjust it all to their convenience, but this doesn’t always end well and can leave you frustrated when the end result is not what you wanted. Life Bruce Lee once said “be water my friend”

As a gay man -until society changes and evolves to a point it is normalized-, you are constantly coming out; when you meet new people you need, at some point bring up the sexual orientation bit to keep them from assuming wrong. As many already know, I am spending the weekend away from my usual routine at my best friend’s rural hometown -beautiful volcanic island, but mostly farmers… everywhere-.

The small detail I may have left out is that she is a single mom -divorced actually-, therefore when planning our small weekend holiday, I had already expected a somewhat preventive coming out strategy; I mean she visits twice, maybe three times a year and the area must have around 60 to 80 people living in it -that’s small towns for you, I’ve actually counted 10 people so far- so imagine the after effects  of her showing up with some random guy nobody knows and her 7 year old -she’d be the talk of the area of months, I am sure-. In order to prevent her being married to me in every farmer’s word of mouth -or worse-, I gave her green light to brag about her “gay friend”.

So far so good. Europeans, even the oldest generations are quite used at this point about people’s sexuality. That’s society evolving for you; there is hope for the world still and for future generations to achieve the equality most still fight for and a few of us enjoy. I am not ashamed of publicly announcing it, being gay is who I am; I may not brag about it in the most colorful flashy fashion, but I am proud of it anyway.

Soy de la opinión y firme convición de que  uno debe ajustarse a toda situación a la que es expuesto, especialmente si esta es ajena a nuestra area de seguridad habitual, para así mejor disfrutar de todo aquello que se te ofrece. Alguna personas sin embargo, prefieren ajustarlo todo a su conveniencia, pero esto no siempre acaba bien y puede dejarte sintiendote frustrado, cuando el resultado final no es el que esperabas. Como dijo Bruce Lee una vez “se agua amigo mio”

Cómo hombre gay -hasta que la sociedad cambie a un punto en que esto sea normalizado-, estás saliendo del armario de forma constante; cuando conoces a gente nueva necesitas en algún momento, clarificar el tema para evitar asunciones erroneas. Cómo muchos ya saben, estoy pasando el fin de semana, fuera de mi rutina habitual en el pueblo natal de mi mejor amiga -una isla volcanica preciosa, pero con granjeros por TODOS lados-


El pequeño detalle que he olvidado de mencionar es que es madre soltera -divorciada en realidad-, así que cunado planificamos el viaje, ya yo tenía una estrategia para salir del armario; es decir, ella visita la zona a lo mejor dos o tres veces al año y la zona debe de tener unos 60 a 80 habitantes -así son los pueblos pequeños, yo debo de haber contado a día de hoy unos 10 a lo sumo-, así que imaginense los efectos colaterales de que ella de repente se aparezca con un hombre de la mano de su hijo de 7 años -la convertiría literalmente en la comidilla del pueblo durante meses-. Así que para prevenir que el corre ve y dile de los granjeros de la zona la casaran -o peor-, le dí luz verde para presumir de su “amigo gay”


De momento bien. Los Europeos a día de hoy, incluso las generaciones más mayores, no hacen mucho caso de la orientación sexual de nadie. Así es como las sociedades evolucionan y avanzan; así que pienso de que aún hay esperanza para que la futuras generaciones alcanzen la igualdad por la que muchos luchamos y muy pocos disfrutamos. No me averguenzo de anunciar de forma pública my sexualidad, ser gay es parte de la persona que soy; puede que no lo anuncie orgulloso de la forma más estruendosa y colorida posible, pero sigo estando orgulloso de ello.
