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

An Open And Closed Case

| Scotland, UK | Infidelity, LGBTQ

I have recently been diagnosed with depression and put on antidepressants. It has completely killed my sex drive and my long-term partner (we’re both men) has been getting agitated by it, so I offer a compromise that I read about online. It’s essentially an open relationship, but it’s called Friends with Benefits (FwB). He’s quite eager about it so we agree to trial it, as long as he keeps me aware of everything. It helps ease the tensions in the relationship, and for a few months everything is great.

After six months I’m coming off the antidepressants, but have said we can keep the relationship open if he wants. He decides, however, to end it with his other. He plans to do it over a weekend while I’m away on business. When I come home, our house is picked clean of everything that is his. I try to call him but he doesn’t answer. My suspicions are confirmed when his other boyfriend calls me and asks why my boyfriend’s been claiming I broke it off with him for the two of them to be happy. I explain my end of the story and we agree he is an a**-hole. He is completely dumped by both of us and is forced to move in with his parents.

It’s a few months later now, and his other boyfriend and I are now in a relationship (closed) and couldn’t be happier.

I don’t want to say the whole “open relationship” thing doesn’t work, as I think it was probably more my ex being unhappy and wanting a change. But I would’ve hoped a seven year relationship would have warranted more than lying and then finding out you’ve been dumped through your ex’s boyfriend!


Those Texts Are Coming Out Thick And Fast

| England, UK | Flirting, LGBTQ

(My friend sends me several messages in the night while I’m sleeping. In the morning I look through them.)

Friend: “I’m like a bumblebee. I have a sting that will leave you aching for hours, and my nectar is sweet.”

Friend: “I’m like Michelangelo’s David, buff and hard.”

Friend: “I want to be inside of you, cuddling into your neck and exploding.”

Friend: “Oh, f***! Sorry, these were meant for [Mutual Male Friend with similar name].”

Me: “So… did you just come out to me?”

Friend: “F***!”

Reorienting Your Butt

| QLD, Australia | LGBTQ, Marriage & Partners

(Hubby and I (female) are at the hospital having some routine testing done on my heart. We are in the waiting room and see a cardiologist leave his office and walk up the hallway away from us.)

Husband: *whispering* “He’s gay… You can tell by the way he moves his butt.”

Me: “…why are you looking at another guy’s butt?”


Behaving Below The Belt

| UK | Harassment, LGBTQ

(One of my best friends is a non-op transgender woman. She’s been flirting with me heavily for weeks and, thinking she was joking, I played along. I’m a lesbian.)

Friend: “Hey, [My Name], do you want to come back to mine?”

Me: “Sure, we can do that. Just let me finish my drink.”

(I finish my drink and stand to leave. At that moment she lunges at me, trying to kiss me. I push her away.)

Friend: “What the h***, [My Name]?!”

Me: “I’m not interested in you like that, [Friend], sorry.”

Friend: “This is just because of what I have between my legs!”

Me: “It’s not that. It might play a part, because I don’t like penis and I am gay, but we’re also friends. I wouldn’t want to ruin that.”

Friend: “LIAR! You’re a TRANSPHOBIC B****. You have NO RIGHT to exclude me because of my genitals.”

Me: “Actually, I do. I don’t want to have sex with you. Whether or not this is because of your penis, it’s my choice who I sleep with. I’m going home.”

(I start walking out.)


(We aren’t friends anymore.)

Heading Straight For Success


(Overheard with no context while walking across campus:)

Student: “If I had as much success with women as I do with gay men, there’d be no stopping me.”
