    Today I felt really gay at the dollar store when I got excited seeing the "feminine deodorizing spray" because for half a second I thought it was a vagina scented air freshener.

    What has made you feel really gay/bi/pan/trans/lesbian/queer/etc,etc,etc lately?

    LOL. That's great!

    I took all my kids to the Pride parade an hour away today, and was so happy to be in a group of people I identify with. I'm sure they all looked at me as the straight lady with a ton of kids that just wanted to enjoy a parade. Oh, well, I felt amazing!

    I ordered the LGBTQ+ pride flag as well as the bisexual pride flag on Tuesday - the rainbow one showed up yesterday and when the other one comes, you'd better believe they're going on my wall!

    I kissed my date at the bar, and didn't think until after about the fact that we were in public and not in a gay club. Still didn't care. Kissed her a few more times :slight_smile:

    Only drew women during my figure drawing session, fell in love with every one of them.

    Oh wow. This is hilarious, because when I went to therapy and showed my therapist my drawings (90 percent of which were girls) he asked me if I was attracted to them. Which i was. :eusa_danc

    Also probably thinking about some tv shows with cool male characters and remembering "oh yeah, I don't have to try to force myself to be attracted to these guys anymore. I can just think they're cool."

    I went to pick up my photos at CVS. The cashier guy had this really epic David Tenant style hair. I felt myself trying to force attraction there, since I knew he was objectively attractive. (This feels like the attraction version of trying to poop while constipated.) Iwas able to realize I didn't have to like him, that Icould think his hair was cool without wanting to bone him, and that I could check out that tall, busty girl wearing plaid instead.

    I've been thinking about the past lately. Thinking about all the times I would draw women and rarely guys.. having crushes on school mates that were girls and female characters in all the movies I watched.. Certain situations I had with my female childhood friends, my first make out session with a woman (which came entirely too late btw) etc.. I look back and think to myself now, "How the hell did you not see how queer you have always been sooner!?!?"
    Also I have felt super bi lately because of how rainbow colored my facebook page is these days! But really, the lgbtq+ community is represented all over the place in my circle at least and I am always reminded of my queerness because of that. Feels great! :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:ride:

    Last night I was planning a craft with a friend. (Polymer clay cosplay horns, vaguely Maleficent style.) She was like, "I don't know what you would do if [worst case scenario] happened." I was like, "What I always do. Use a drill."

    First experience with polymer clay was a success, btw. Learned a lot for next time, too.

    Summer is finally officially here, but locally the weather has made it feel like summer for the past month. This has had me availing myself of my fabulous tank top collection, which makes me feel just gay enough (for my more fabulous tops, I sometimes have to take it down a notch with cargo shorts, when I'm not quite ready for that level of fabulosity...). :eek:

    Went on a random spur of the moment trip to the beach with my girlfriend. We held hands in public walking down the main strip, and snuggled on a lounge chair on the beach when the sun went down. It was amazing...and pretty gay. :slight_smile:

    Saw a shirt at the store with a hot woman in a bikini on it. Bought it. I'm pretty sure I have a one track mind....
