Quiet queer spaces

Thoughts on the gap that I am trying to fill as a queer facilitator

Last tended on Sep 11, 2021

Taking inspiration from Hannah Gadsby's ideas on (neuro)diversity in the queer community, I've come to understand that the audience for the queer facilitation I do can be best identified as The Quiet Gays:

Both within the context of queer Catholicism and in queerdom in general, I've experienced a growing pull away from the things I normally appreciate: sincerity, a sense of community, and daylight. For many young queer people, the queer community can, as a false monolith, present itself as an event that happens one week or month a year during the day, and every weekend at night.
