I find it sad that young gay guys are so assimilated into straight culture nowadays.

The ones I meet are into sports and hanging out in sports bars with their straight buddies. This one at work like to frequent cigar clubs. When I was young, we kept to ourselves and wouldn't dream of participating in these heteronormative activities. One of the great things about being gay is that we could create and celebrate our own culture that was nothing like "theirs." Ever try and have a conversation with a 20-something gay guy about "Mildred Pierce" or "Johnny Guitar"? They have no idea who Joan Crawford is. My goodness, she is an icon, part of our heritage, and they've never heard of her!! That's just one example, but there are many others as well. I don't care about fantasy football, and I find it sad, almost a betrayal, that young guys rather talk about their football league than, say, Roz Russell. Just venting.
