    The problem is that most of they gay guys that are out in HS are the ones that a pretty flamboyant and I was never into that. The good thing for you is at least you know that there are good looking masculine guys out there that are gay. Growing up I thought I was the only gay guy in the world that was masculine.
    You can, and need to find a ground that you know you are suppose to stand on.. hence, stand your ground, this is the place where you know everything is as it should be for you. If you stand in a place where you know in your heart things are wrong, most things around you will never be right.

    Rule number one, never work at being what another man defines as being "honorable", Honorable is is being true to what you know and and doing what you know is right for you..

    Speaking from a straight point of view.... Growing up I knew a handful of gay guys. It seemed that the flamboyant guys IMO were not really gay, all they did was draw attention to themselves and scream IM GAY!!!!! Or talk about how hot so and so was or how they'd do (insert sexual act) to such and such. While the other known gay guys would look away and kind of shrug it off.

    Not sure what happened to the flamboyant ones over the years... Have the people you guys knew that were super flamboyant in high school, did they grow out of it, turn straight, or keep on screaming about being gay?

    The guys I knew that were without a doubt gay were into sports, into music, into working on cars, they were no different than any other person. They just preferred people of the same sex. You'd never know they were gay unless they told you.

    Glad you liked it, the last 5 years has shown such a massive gain in software sound quality. 10 years ago if you told me I would go 99% to software sounds I would have said, no way in hell.

    Sadly it takes A LOT of power to run legit sounding software sounds (VSTs) and lots and lots of hard drive space.

    I was in HS in the 1970's and in the 1970's utah being out was just not something even possible. So really the only people that I kind of knew or assumed were gay were the more flamboyant and even that was kind of toned down from what you see today. I really haven't seen any of these people since high school I honestly don't know what happened to them. Keep in mind that we were all in college in the early 80's just as the AIDS epidemic was happening. I think probably a lot of them died. I knew two guys from my college died of AIDS in like 1985 or so.

    Thats insane to me. My career has been in music and when I was younger I was the wonderboy of the early synths. This was before you could even preset the keyboards you had to do it all on the fly and in live performance.

    The last pro-keyboard that I got really seriously trained on was a Korg M1 and that is now vintage keyboard. At this point I have focused on staying on top of the home market more digital piano related.

    My Motif ES8 is about 10 years old now. The only thing that matters now adays (unless you plan on doing live shows) is the key action of the keyboard, I started piano lessons at 3 years old so I'm pretty big into a legit feeling piano. The motif not only has fully weighted keys it also has hammers and live action inside the keyboard so when you hit a key a hammer swings and hits a strip of felt just as if it were a real piano, lower keys are heavier and higher keys are lighter



    My biggest issue is getting in the mood to work on music, life takes over and its just really hard to be creative when you have free time. I'm always creative when I'm busy and anytime I have some free time I just feel like blah when it comes to writing.

    Ha! I can better enjoy and appreciate musicians like yourself this way though

    Sounds like Mr. Mtnbikedude is on to something. You'll go nuts keeping up with all the techno advances. What was that one synth that used taped sounds?? The Chamberlain?? That sound is still sought after

    I could see the time frame 1970s VS 80s VS 90s VS 2000s making a big difference.

    It just seemed that the guys I knew that were all hayyyyyy were gay because it was cool and it did get them attention... a lot of attention and it was almost always good attention. Even when they got ragged on, others always stepped in (mostly women) and gave them support.

    Oh wow you have been here a while. bb.com has really been a great place for me. I have made a lot of friends here that I've been able to meet IRL. Some of the very first people I came out to were straight friends I made here. They gave me the courage to come out here and in a limited way IRL. Some have actually been to Utah and met my family first hand. Later I made some gay friends that also gave me additional insight.

    I started in the sup forum but very quickly made my way to the misc and the evolved into the R/P. Had a lot of serious discussions that went on to shape a lot of how I began to feel about religion etc. There was always the controversy over homosexuality. But what really moved me was these straight guys that were willing to stand up for others. At the time it seemed like this biggest insult you could do was to accuse someone of being gay because they were defending the homo's. You could tell it bothered some of them but there was young guy that didn't care at all.

    I thought wow here I am with all of my life story about going thru failed therapy to be made straight, living in the closet.

    You can, and need to find a ground that you know you are suppose to stand on.. hence, stand your ground, this is the place where you know everything is as it should be for you. If you stand in a place where you know in your heart things are wrong, most things around you will never be right.

    Rule number one, never work at being what another man defines as being "honorable", Honorable is is being true to what you know and and doing what you know is right for you..

    That sounds like me. I've never cared about what others thought of me even to this day. Since it never bothered me when someone talked down to me they would assume that it was (what ever the topic was) because it was true and that often times turned into gay talk, and since I never denied it it pushes them to think about it even more. I always enjoyed pushing back a bit by lightly touching their arm or going for a hug only to see them freak out, then explain that I'm as straight as they get, I could never see myself with a man however the fact that they are so jumpy at the thought of anything gay should make them think twice about why they are so worried about it.

    If you're comfortable with your sexuality you shouldn't have an issue hugging a man, woman, little boy, little girl, old man old woman, there's nothing sexual about it.

    Too many people in this world are tied up in what they think is right and how everyone else should live by it. They just passed Gay Marriage in Maryland, I've heard so many Christians speak out about how its wrong and how it needs to be changed back ASAP. When I ask them questions like, what if the people who are gay do not believe in god, does it matter if they're gay? What's worse, them not believing in god, or them being gay? How does it effect you? Then it always turns into a this country was founded on Christian beliefs... yada yada yada, they beat around the bush on those questions.

    Better yet, what if a loving gay couple believes in god and believes Jesus died for their sins, does that make them any different than every other person in the world? Only person that hasnt sinned has been Jesus, every human sins on a daily basis, its who we are and its why Jesus died for us. (if you are a Christian) How many sins are based solely on interpretation of the book and what one person views as a sin another person does not....

    I grew up open minded about faith, my wife is the same way although she likes to say she is Buddhist she likes the way they teach you to live your life and respect all things.

    It's late and Im just rambling on, hopefully I dont read this in the morning and go WTF was I writing lol

You could tell it bothered some of them but there was young guy that didn't care at all.

    I thought wow here I am with all of my life story about going thru failed therapy to be made straight, living in the closet.

    I have straight friends and family members that say they would literally kill anyone if they gave me crap for being gay. The statement itself is clearly over the top but the sentiment behind it is flattering. Unconditional love/acceptance is an amazing feeling.

    Mntbikedude's post the other day about first crushes got me to thinking about something. I really know very little about any of you (and I'm sure many of us don't know much about each other either), and I thought it would be a fun activity to post a questionnaire. A "Get to know your fellow homo", if you will.

    Name of your first trick:
    Age when you lost your virginity:

    I find it too bad that there needs to be a thread for gay people and whatnot, the misc is pretty bad when it comes to being open minded (as opposed to just full integration...but hten again women barely venture to the misc as well)... I don't know if that has to do with the fact that most miscers are from a country that can't except the fact people are gay outside of New York and Cali...

    Cheers guys, keep on keeping on lol.

    Naw really the misc isn't to bad the only time they really give gay guys a hard time is when they are deliberately trying to stir it up. I spend most of my time in the misc and the R/P, I'm respectful to them and for the most part people are reasonably respectful to me. I just got some reps from a guy that came into a thread really anti gay. I have a decent amount of rep and I almost negged him but decided to just be cool. And you know what he turned out to be pretty decent as well. You Canadians have done a lot better job of not making being gay a big deal. I really love that about Canada. Plus Canada does have the absolutely hottest guys on the planet. Seriously I have never seen more built guys in my life then visiting Vancouver BC
    You can, and need to find a ground that you know you are suppose to stand on.. hence, stand your ground, this is the place where you know everything is as it should be for you. If you stand in a place where you know in your heart things are wrong, most things around you will never be right.
