  1. Hey all. Firstly, let me tell you why I decided to write a post about this. Professionally, I am a content writer, and I adore writing some good quality content but usually for work. However, every now and then, things happen in my life that shake me up to the core and force me to think - to think about life, about how one's life is supposed to look like, and how we take this gift we were given for granted because the society overwhelms us by making us focus on completely irrelevant things that pass quicker than a flash. So here's my story, and here's why it made me realize that gay culture (in my personal opinion), in its current state, is extremely damaging for most of the gays, and why we need to wake up because we don't even realize why it is we're often feeling so sad, incomplete, and alone. The Intruder in My Body By the end of November and the beginning of December, I started to feel quite nauseous. I completely lost my apetite and even the thought of food made me feel like I'm gonna puke. I thought it was depression or anxiety, even though I never quite felt like this before in my life, I thought that maybe everything we've been going through with the epidemic is finally getting to me. I thought if I started reading some good quality books to help me elevate myself, I could fight anxiety or depression, or whatever it was that was making me feel this way. But it didn't stop at all; days passed and I started to lose the will to live at all. I hated getting up early for work, I hated working out (although I would feel better afterwards), I hated doing most things that made me, ME. So I decided to go back home for a while (home office due to the COVID-19 epidemic) hoping being with my family and being in our country house every now and then would help me. And although it did help me feel better mentally, I was still sick to my stomach. Two days after coming back, my mother noticed my eyeballs were getting yellow-ish, and the following day I turned completely yellow. Doctor diagnosed me with jaundice, but they had to discover what was causing it. After examining my gallbladder and liver, they realized the probem wasn't there, which nearly automatically meant I had some sort of hepatitis; and my blood test showed it was Hepatitis B. The Consequences of My Acts Now, don't get me wrong, I'm no drama queen and Hepatitis B certainly isn't something one could die from. Overall, your body eliminates the virus after 3 months and you develop life-long antibodies, which is great. So obviously, it wasn't this that so mentally ****ed me up, it was the fact that someone whom I've slept with 2-3 months prior to me getting symptoms decided to sleep with me knowing very well I will get the virus. This person didn't care about me one bit. Naturally, Hepatitis B is in most case transmitted ***ually, especially in gay men - so doctors urgently had to test me for HIV too, just in case. Even though I ALWAYS use protection (*****s) when I sleep with other men, I was horrified that I might have HIV as well. After all, the chances were there. Again, I'm not being a drama queen, I know very well that people with HIV live happy, healthy, and long lives nowadays. Still, I was shocked that someone could actually be ready to transmit such a serious virus to a person, and so I kept thinking about my life, about everything right or wrong that I did. About all the silly, IRRELEVANT, things I spent both time and money on. Luckily, after double testing, I was HIV negative and I was jumping through the roof! But here's what I realized while waiting nearly 48 hours for double tests to show whether I will be obliged to drink anti-HIV medicine my whole life or if I will be able to continue with my life unscathed and one experience wealthier. The Horrible Realization I spent last 2-3 years being convinced that the better I looked, the better I will feel. I was convinced that no handsome guy would even look at me if I'm not muscular, successful, and handsome. So I worked hard at the gym, and I got the gym body I so badly wanted. I worked very hard too and I got that amazing salary and position, and I got many gay men to notice me. I shopped for all kinds of amazing, expensive clothes so I could look flawless and trendy at all times. So I had a lot of *** (always protected) with a lot of different, very hot guys - and I thought I was happy. I thought to myself "this is it, I'm living the gay dream, this is what I wanted the whole time as an overweight, loser teenager." And although I do firmly believe this is my fault, it's equally the fault of our culture. Our culture has become so toxic that it convinces us if we don't look like models, we are worthless. We can't get a proper *** partner that we find hot, we can't have a relationship with a guy we like if we're not up to his already insanely high standards, etc. I thought that I was doing exactly what our LGBTQI+ elders fought and died for, and me having *** without people telling me I can't and without any risk of being prosecuted for it meant celebrating my rights as a free gay man. But I was wrong...very wrong. I was so tunnelvisioned into what doesn't even matter. Yes I have a great gym body I invested hundreds of euros and so much time in, but for what? So I could turn heads and feel better? So I could sleep with anyone I found attractive? Not for myself? Not so I would feel good and healthy? I am successful so others could say I'm successful, so they could envy me and find me more desirable in every way. I am writing this because I want you to realize something that I realized only once I was afraid for my life - you are the owner of your mind and body, nobody else. Celebrating our rights by having meaningless *** is putting a stain on everything our elders fought for. Yet I see SO MANY gays doing just that, over and over again. It's easy to be alone while being young, it's easy being hot and desirable in your 20s, 30s, and even 40s. It's easy earning a lot when your whole life revolves around you and your needs only. But what happens after that? What happens once we're not at the height of our youth? Once our bodies stop being head-turners? Here's what I've Learned I am not telling you to run for it and let yourself go or just desperately try to find a man so you don't end up alone. I am telling you to focus your life on what truly matters. If you want to be good-looking, do it for yourself. If you want to be successful, do it because it makes YOU feel happy and safe. And most importantly, always strive to make others around you feel happy and loved. Love is what makes this world go round. One cannot find happiness untill one offers it to those around them first. So respect others, love them, help them whenever you can, make sure your family, friends, and partner know exactly how special they are to you. Focus your attention on what truly matters and makes you happy because this life is so short and valuable, and you're not getting any re-runs. Your happiness is your own, and it does not depend on anyone else! The Second Shot at Life The 48 hours passed, and as my doctor approached my hospital bed to give me the news, I thought to myself "ok, you screwed up, but let's make it worth with what time we have left." "Congratulations Felix, you're HIV negative and your Hepatitis B infection is accute, you should be fine in 2-3 months." As a huge, deep sigh, left my chest through my mouth, I nearly fainted - "I got a second chance at life," I thought to myself. I am at home-rest now, and I promised to myself that I will spend my life making myself and those dear to me happy. I will celebrate my gay rights by never hiding who I am and by finding (some day) a man who I will love, regardless if it is in public in front of everyone or in the privacy of our own home. I promised that whatever I do, it will be for the benefit of my health and happiness. And I beg of you to do the same. Don't ever get into a situation where you will regret wasting the amazing gift you were given. Love you all, and I hope you stay safe
  2. Hello Exhale! Forgive me if this isn't the typical post you're used to but I figured I'd post it here and see if I have any takers. I created this video in an attempt to find the man I'm meant to be with, he may not be a member of Exhale but perhaps some of you wouldn't mind sharing it for me? I'd really appreciate the support for your fellow gay brethren.
  3. Why do you think gay men love wearing speedos? I honestly don't get it. I know it's normalized with straight and gay men in Europe, but in America I would say 99% of men that wear a speedo (who is not an athlete) are gay. I have noticed this for years and now that we have this forum, I thought I could ask and get some thoughts. So what say you Exhale? https://www.instagram.com/p/ByfxgdwHVsp/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
  4. I honestly don’t like Nick jonas that much and also I absolutely don’t like Shawn mendesThese two got all the hype because of the gays.Periodt.What all are other male celebs you find as overrated and don’t feel like they are hot??!
  5. Producer Diplo and Canadian country artist, Orville Peck, grace the cover of the newest Attitude mag issue. Attitude is described the "best-selling gay magazine." We love to see it. What is your body telling you?
  6. Similarly to the Politics & global news forum, I also created a forum for LGBTQ-related topics. News, discussion, opinion, perusal stories... I want Exhalers who identify as LGBTQ and our straight allies to have a safe space to discuss important topics. This is a story I've been following for a minute. Former GOP Congressman Aaron Schock officially comes out as gay - he was previously against gay marriage and held antigay positions such as "voting against lifting the ban on LGB people serving in the military and voting not to extend hate crime protections to include ****** orientation and gender identity," Queerty reports. There's been mountains of evidence for a while now: revealing intimate photos (do not post), caught making out with a guy at Coachella and much more. He posted a note on Instagram explaining his current stance and confirms he is indeed gay. “I am gay,” begins his post. “I did like I’d always done and threw myself into the distraction of work and what I once understood success to be. That included being responsive to the interests of the constituents in the district that I served. Perhaps correctly, perhaps not, I assumed that revealing myself as their gay congressman would not go over well. I put my ambition over the truth, which not only hurt me, but others as well.” What do you guys think? Is it too little too late, or should the LGBTQ community forgive him for his past mistakes?
  7. They just revealed more guest judges on RuPaul's Drag Race. Robyn?! Looks like I'll be tuning in
  8. LIL NAS X REVEALS HE’S PART OF THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY. “Old Town Road” with Billy Ray Cyrus has topped the charts since April, and the mastermind behind the track, Lil Nas X, just confirmed he’s gay. He shared the news and directed fans to pay close attention to his one of his new songs, “C7osure,” off his new EP, 7. “some of y’all already know, some of y’all don’t care, some of y’all not gone fwm no more,” he wrote. “but before this month ends i want y’all to listen closely to c7osure.” “C7osure” begins with the words, “True say, I want and I need to let go, use my time to be free.” He continues: “Ain’t no more actin’, man that forecast say I should just let me grow/No more red light for me baby, only green, I gotta go/Pack my past up in the back, oh, let my future take ahold/This is what I gotta do, can’t be regrettin’ when I’m old.” Lil Nas X also zoomed in on 7’s artwork that subtly features a rainbow: “deadass thought i made it obvious.” The EP debuted t No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart. His reign has also battled two Taylor Swift songs from reaching the top, and has broken streaming records set by Drake. Welcome to the fam!
  9. AH, LOVE AND RAINBOWS ARE IN THE AIR AND PRIDE IS HERE. Every year, the LGBTQ community comes together in the month of June to rally, and this year brimming with colorful displays of equality. It’s an opportunity to celebrate diversity and inclusion. It’s a moment to come together in a safe space and feel seen, liberated, and loved. Pride parades and festivals are taking place all over the world and it’s a pretty incredible thing to see as someone who belongs to the LGBTQ community myself. It’s a celebration and movement that gets larger with each passing year. Of course, no pride festival is complete without music pulsating up and down the streets. I mean, did pride even happen if you didn’t hear “Born This Way” at least once? Whether it’s Madonna’s “Material Girl” or Britney’s “Work *****” blasting at your local gay bar or club, one thing is for sure – there is a lineup of pop legends that resonate with the gay community. Have you ever wondered what life is about? You could search the world and never figure it out. I have spent years wondering why so many LGBTQ people gravitate towards the same pop divas. While, I want to avoid making vast generalizations here – as obviously everyone has their own unique taste, there is no denying a common thread here that ties the LGBTQ together with some of these pop music legends. Lots of LGBTQ people make-up the core audience for the likes of Madonna, Britney, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Cher, Rihanna, Kylie, Mariah, Taylor Swift and many others. Why is that? And what do most of these reigning women have in common with the LGBTQ community, even if many of them are straight women? To answer that we will need to peel a very subjective, unscientific onion. I could probably write an entire book trying to dissect this. But for now, let’s keep it high level. Read the full RX story on BreatheHeavy.com then leave a comment! https://www.breatheheavy.com/pride-pop-divas/

  11. Yes, Is Britney ashamed of her lgbt fans? i think so bcuz she doesnt usually ackowledge us in her interviews or in her videos. Will she be brave and take some risk? when will we have original Make Me original video which was the gayest video of hers??? meanwhile some famous group in Turkey named Athena who also attended Euorivison back then in some year i dont remember filmed this video ive posted down there. they tell the story of trans-genders who often faces such treatments, abuses and more in almost every part of the world They actually took risk instead of using gay people and watching the amazing, a piece of art i wanted to ask When Will Britney? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNPei56WhAk
