Confessions of a Str8 Gay Man: Not Your Usual Gay Blog

“Confessions of a Str8 Gay Man” is my no-holds-barred, unvarnished, introspective social commentary on Gay Life in today’s America,   written from my perspective as a “str8 gay” man, a member of the great silent gay majority who do not espouse to the fluff of gay sub-culture or all its political correctness but lead quiet, ordinary lives.Some readers think I’m right on the money, others think I’m a self-centered, heartless, bigoted, narrow-minded bastard.

They’re both right. If you don’t like what you read, write your own blog.

Below is a directory of the subjects I’ve posted since I started Confessions of a Str8 Gay Man for your virgin enjoyment or hardcore rediscovery. Use the date and the monthly archive in the lower right column to retrieve.

  1. I am not “Str8”, by any stretch of the imagination. When I purchased my home and moved to Maui, more than a decade ago, I did it as a gay man. Everyone knows. I make no apologies. I like your cantankerous attitude. I may have to buy the book to get caught up on all the opinions, and I would NEVER do the pic you use, above, but, a few ounces of “Don’t be stupid” would do the whole world a lot of good. Sign me up.

    • You can get the complete “Confessions” at amazon.com as an e-book for Kindle – I guess you and I are the only two areas in the country enjoying summery weather right now. I don’t expect guys to agree with everything I say – hardly – just get them to think. There’s just too much mindlessness going on in this society – and our sub-culture.
