A gay colony

Why has it never been tried? I think some lesbians attempted to make one for them, but it failed. Do you think a gay men version could work?

"What happens when a political analysis that comes out of the politics of alliance ends up departing from alliance: in other words, when people think that making something “gay” is enough. The kinds of people that get forgotten and spoken over when a certain kind of essentialist gay politics are deployed. And even though this crackpot plan never came to pass, today's show, about the failed attempt to establish a gay nation in rural California, reveals some of the flaws at the heart of ‘70s radical gay politics."

There are 3800 abandoned towns in the United States (avoid those that are toxic waste dumps)

Of course gays would make these places fabulous and straights would start moving in.

When? Where?

What do you mean by "colony?" Because there are and have been countless communes, but we've never had a sovereign nation nor a part of one, exclusively. We've also never "colonised" part of another country, in the strict sense. There are gay villages and enclaves in nearly every large city and many small ones, too. There are also gay meccas like San Francisco or Fire Island, where gay people predominate and maybe even form a majority. But there's never been a geographic jurisdiction where homosexuality or embracing a gay identity was required for residency..

I listened to R17 and it brought back memories of the goofy 1970s. I got RFD in 1978/9 when I was living in the rural South as a young gayling. RDF meant rural free delivery and it initially focused on that more than radical faeries. It was a life line. Anywho I have always had a soft spot for the Faeries although I never participated probably because of RFD.

This question has to have been posted by someone who doesn't remember what an established gay scene was like?

Sexuality did not unite us within our groups then (even AIDS didn't achieve it). I made as many enemies as friends 40 years ago when I arrived in the community.

I still have some great friends and fuck knows where the enemies are now?

by Anonymousreply 54March 30, 2023 1:57 AM

It's impossible. Even the gayborhoods or gay towns mentioned have plenty of straight residents and political leaders. I think if it could happen, we would have to make a gay cult or religion. The new city or colony would be a "haven' for our fellow believers. But there never has been a gay religion, and if it did exist, it couldn't last for anthropological reasons.

Ok. So I live in Denver. Famous for having 300 days of sunshine a year and for being about 150 feet from the sun.

I'm 50 and I've met 30 years olds with so much skin damage, wrinkles and crows feet that even the 30 year olds can't pass for 30.

I didn't grow up here and still don't have wrinkles or crows feet. I have completely silver hair and I think I look 50. But I also think that I look younger than most 30 year old Denver natives.

There are plenty of gay enclaves, I think most gay men though are perfectly happy to integrate with the straights as long as they get the respect and equal opportunities that they do. There's definitely a percentage of gay men who live what I would call exclusively 'gay lives' where their entire existence revolves around the gay scene, gay culture etc. only have gay friends, work for gay companies and etc but I would strongly suspect that's a minority and the majority of gay men live pretty similarly to non-gay people, the only real difference is who they fuck.

[quote] Scheide = cunt in German

That is incorrect. Scheide = vagina, which is also commonly used in Germany. Both are considered clinical terms for the female body part.

Fotze = cunt.


Schimpfwort (curse word)

Der Ausdruck wird heute als äußerst beleidigendes Schimpfwort für Frauen verwendet. Unter Strafgefangenen dient der Begriff als Beleidigung für einen besonders effeminierten oder verweichlichten Mitgefangenen.

(Nowadays, the term is used as a derogatory curse word for women. Amongst the incarcerated, the term serves as an insult for particularly weak and feminine prisoners).


In the German language one can combine "Fotze" with "Mund" or "Arsch" and it can be translated as mouth or ass pussy / cunt.

If you find a place where you thrive, fuck what anyone says. This constant theme on DL or ragging on cities, towns or neighborhoods is so silly. I've lived all over. And I've found wonderful things about everywhere. Some were good for a while. Some were good for a decade. But now I am feel like a found my spot in this world. But I think it's more mindset than geography. To those of you perpetually looking for greener pastures, I suggest you look within.
