I Am A Non-traditional Gay Male

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 328 People

    The more gay men I have met in my life,

    the more I realize that once you get to know a gay man, you realize most are non-traditional. I do think "non-traditional" is code for "straight-acting" and I know "straight-acting" is a very polarizing term. For some, it comes with judgment, implying that straight-acting is...

    I am not a stereotypical gay man,

    which is probably one of my worst enemies. I wish I could be more feminine so people could know that I'm gay instead of having to come out all the time to people I meet. So that I don't have to worry if they would continue to being my friend. I hate the feeling of "having to...

    I have always admired cornrow braids on men.

    I have been thinking about having them put in my hair for years, I finally did it. I am a white man wearing cornrow braids & have to wear a durag to bed. I did not make it out of the parking lot of the salon without turning heads and people asking me why. Driving my car...

    I'm a 22 year old gay man.

    I play rugby for my college. Nobody knows that I am gay except my boyfriend and a few of his friends. Here is the non-traditional part: I am 22 and my boyfriend is 56. He's a hell of a guy and I love him a lot. We are both very masculine guys, hairy, with tattoos, not the...

    "i Am A Non-traditional Gay Male"

    I am a 43 year old gay man who is a non-traditional gay.  I have never had a three-way, been in an open relationship, had group sex, or been to a sex party!  Why is this so acceptable amongst gay men?!  I find it very sad that it feels like the normal...

    I Refuse To Allow Society To Control How I Express My Sexuality

    So, I like the beautiful creation of the male human being. As well as the opposite sex. However I have been dating men for a couple of years and really have my mind wrapped around this being in the 'closet' thing. I opened up and informed my mother around eighteen years of age...

    Typically Gay, But Not Your Typical Gay.

    I guess anyone who knows me would say that it was expected that I would grow up to be a gay man; but along with my runway model walk, inflected voice, and outrageous attitude, i am also a very typical man of my generation. By that I mean I am very much a nerdy fratboy. Video...

    Not Your Everyday Gay Man...

    I'm A Christian

    For me it's about love, respect and commitment. Experimenting something bigger than me that would come from the best in me, giving myself completely fearless and enjoying the sense of caring.

    Not The Expected Breed Here.....

    Hi,I am non-traditional because I do not speak the 'gay lingo', utilize my sexuality more than what it is; because it is one part of me and shouldn't be exerted ostentatiously, conceited, too concerned with sex,  and too concerned with superficial aspects of...

    It's Tough

    I am a very Christian orientated gay man. I am in my early 30's and am still hoping one day soon; The Lord blesses me with someone who was worth every second to wait for. Of course it was hard for me to accept being gay. I even tried counseling to try and change. We know that...
