    Is gay pda common thing where you live?

    Please don't reply this thread like "Holding hand, peck on lips is ok, but making out should be in private". I'm not asking what kind of pda is appropriate/inappropriate. I'm asking gay pda is a common thing where you live? Please, give the city name you live in as well.

    And do you show pda?

    It's more common here than in other places, given that washington is fairly liberal. Mostly though it's females and gender variant people holding hands, guys partaking in pda is far less common, at least as far as I've seen.

    and if I had anyone for which pda was acceptable , i.e a partner, I sure would. idgaf what people think, and our school is really good with lgbt+ protections.

    Sadly, this is true. I think straight female friends are far more touchy feely than even many out gay (male) couples. Not to say I haven't seen it happen, but it's less common, so more inspiring when it does.

    I've only seen gay couples (whom I've pegged as such) by other cues, but haven't really seen gay pda.

    I would say it's common. But it's not judged as harshly, and also I've only seen lesbians do it

    I don't really see a lot of PDA, gay or straight, other than hand holding. Maybe I'm just not looking.

    I've never seen gay PDA or even a gay couple in real life.

    The community I live in has been known for years for its diversity and it is and have always been heavily gay populated. Therefore, initially when I first moved in the community...gay pda was a very common thing. However, once other individuals from the east side of town became aware of the little city by the lake and all that it had to offer...they bought along their homophobic morals and values within certain areas which has caused a lot of gay people to move out of those locations. With that being said...although the community is still heavily gay populated..the comfortability of gay pda is not as common as it used to be. The only times it is very prevalent is in the 24 hour diners that are located in various areas of the community that a lot of gay people frequent a lot especially on the weekends after hanging out at the clubs. These diners have been in the community for many years and gay pda is a common thing.

    My profile says that I live in Manchester, but I don't: it's just the closest city. Where I actually live is a tiny village several miles away from Manchester in the countryside.

    Gay PDA is very uncommon where I live, in fact I've only seen gay PDA from a lesbian couple I was sort-of-friends with in Sixth Form. That said, straight PDA isn't common either, even when I go into town I never really see people being particularly affectionate.

    Oh, I forgot to answer the last question!

    No, I don't tend to show PDA, I'm not very physically affectionate even with family members. I've never understood the type of people who ask for hugs every 30 minutes.

    (That said, when my crush asked me for a hug at work yesterday - in a pretty public place - I had no problem complying!)

    I've never really seen any pda between anyone. I live in a small town in ontario and it's turning into a retirement town, a lot of old people live here these days. I've seen some hand holding in het couples but I've never really met an LGBT+ person that was open about it besides a few fellow trans and nc people.

    I haven't really seen much gay pda, I saw two guys kiss in the town one time. Um, yeah that's about it. I know a few openly gay people, but I don't tend to see much gay pda on the College campus or in public. I know straight couples that are really affectionate though, like they'll kiss each other almost after every single sentence.

    But I haven't really seen that with gay couples, in fact I don't think I've ever seen two women kiss in public (except french-kissing / friendly kissing on both cheeks) but I have heard of female couples kissing in cinemas and at parties around here, but I don't get out much so yeah.

    The Netherlands, a city near Rotterdam but also Rotterdam itself. And no, I personally wouldn't show public displays of affection. I don't think anything would happen, but it might, occasionally, so I don't want to risk that. =)

    Nope, even when I went to an insanely liberal High School it wasn't common.
