LGBT groups seem contrived when I'm a cis gay male and college kids are either accepting or ambivalent enough for me to not feel isolated. I don't doubt the communal benefits, but I don't feel like I need to be there.
>get invited to a meeting for a local LGBT club >at a small college >get there expecting it to be decent and maybe I'll find some people I can make friends with >find out they only wanted me because I'm the only tranny at my college >they don't even want to bother with any trans acceptance stuff, it's all about gay acceptance, which is cool but they made no mention of anything about transgender people >literally only want me to fill a demographic
Didn't even stay for the whole meeting. Fuck that shit, I didn't come out to become a token.
Why not? It depends why you are joining. LGBT groups are a great way to make homo homies, meet different kinds of people, and talk to other gays in your area. Depends why you're going though. They are good places to socialize and make new friends and connections. But you might hate it too. It honestly depends on what the dynamics of the group are like.
>>5055345 I joined one in the first yr of uni, went once, it was a huge piss up and I don't drink, got hit on by a lot of lesbians despite telling them kindly I'm a gay guy. Not worth it. Buy some noodles instead.
I went to a few meetings... really didn't fit in - everyone defines themselves on their sexuality and tries really hard to fit stereotypes.
Been a regular atendee at a few more societies and still never met an openly gay person that doesn't dye their hair 20 colours or isn't a vapid grindr lovin' stereotype. At this point, I'm just assuming that I'm not 'going to make it'.
