    Category: LGBTQ

    We are family: all my brothers, sisters and me. This category is for all our LGBTQ friends who show that love knows no bounds.

    Thick Skinned

    | Berlin, Germany | Flirting/How We Met, LGBTQ

    (I am a lesbian. And even when I’m with my significant other, men still hit on me, because they seem to think I’m kissing a girl for attention or something along those lines. My girlfriend and I are out dancing and waiting for drinks at the bar.)

    Guy: “Did it hurt?”

    Me: “What, when I had my d*** removed? Yup, that was h***. I had to stretch my interior several times a day to make sure it doesn’t grow closed again. And my interior is d*** skin. Dude, that s*** hurts.”

    (He fled.)

    A Pub-lished Number

    | West Yorkshire, England, UK | Flirting/How We Met, LGBTQ

    (I’m working the till, a few feet away from the main counter. The customer has brought a pasty and bun.)

    Me: “Okay, that’ll be £1.50.”

    (I take his money and give him his change when he shoves a piece of paper under my nose.)

    Customer: “This too.”

    (I look at the paper, which has what I assume to be the man’s number on it.)

    Me: “What’s this for?”

    Customer: “It’s from the pub last night.”

    Me: “Not me… I didn’t go out last night.”

    Customer: “Anthony?”

    (I shake my head and he takes his paper and goods, and then bolts.)

    Boss: “What was that?”

    Me: “I was just hit on by a gay guy. Even for me, that’s a first.”

    Butching About You

    | CA, USA | Engaged, LGBTQ


    (My fiancée and I are both women, but while she is very feminine, I am very masculine. Today, she has gotten a haircut and dye job done, and she is very happy with it.)

    Me: “Have you taken a picture of you with your new haircut for Instagram?”

    Fiancée: “No, not yet.”

    Me: “Well, you should. Because that’s what you do. You’re a basic b****.”

    Fiancée: “Yeah, I know.”

    Me: “I can’t be a basic b****, though. I’m too masculine.”

    Fiancée: “That’s true. You can’t be.”

    Me: “So what would you call me, then?”

    Fiancée: “A basic butch.”

    Atypically Asexual

    | ON, Canada | Dating, LGBTQ

    (I am very involved in sexual orientation as I am a guidance counselor at a local college who often assists with identifying. I myself identify as asexual, and am very passionate about the LGBT+ world. My boyfriend and I are attending a party where we are talking to another couple after they have learned I’m asexual.)

    Woman: “But how do you have a boyfriend? If you don’t like anyone, how can you date?”

    Me: “Well, actually—”

    Boyfriend: “—asexuality is not having sexual attraction. She is romantically attracted to me, but she has no desire to engage in sexual activity with me.”

    (This is what I always say, word for word. He calmly takes a sip of wine, and sees me staring at him.)

    Boyfriend: “What?”

    Me: “How’d you know what I was going to say?”

    Boyfriend: “You’ve been saying the same thing for the past two years anytime someone asks.”

    Me: “I’m going to have to change it up.”

    Seriously Dude

    | Bremerton, WA, USA | Dating, LGBTQ

    (I am a woman in an open relationship with two men. I’ve been dating Boyfriend #1, who is openly polyamorous, for four years. I’ve been with Boyfriend #2, who isn’t poly, for two years, but he is okay with me dating Boyfriend #1. They’ve known each other for longer than either has known me. The following happens while discussing my future plans with Boyfriend #2. When we first got together, he admitted to being jealous of Boyfriend #1.)

    Me: “Well, I remember you saying before that you’d rather we be monogamous if we got more serious…”

    Boyfriend #2: “No, that’s dumb. I have exactly zero hard feelings for [Boyfriend #1] and I’m way over that. If you decide to fly across the country and bang it out with him for the weekend, I don’t blame you.”

    Me: “Seriously?”

    Boyfriend #2: “No jealousy, not anymore. More of a ‘huh. Okay, did you have fun?’ thing. If I swung that way, I’d do the same!”

    Me: *texting Boyfriend #1* “Congrats you’re [Boyfriend #2]’s ‘if I had to pick a dude.'”

    Boyfriend #1: “If I swung that way, I’d let him!”
