In the midst of all this negativity, Srikanth’s story adds a hopeful anticipation in terms of acceptance of the LGBTQ community within our society. The first Mysuru gay man to put out a matrimonial ad, his quest for love is as relatable to us as all other heterosexual unions. Read full story on www.fiftyshadesofgay.co.in

What a warm feeling I got after reading this. The rarity of good because of complying with the social norms. One can rebel against society directly, or be absorbed by its standards and change it from within. Book - Quest for Love: True stories of Passion and Purity by Elisabeth Elliot (1996). #love #dating #socialnorms #truestory

When you've been conditioned by a society that negatively reinforces anything that is different, it's very difficult to be anything but the same as everyone else. This is a lesson that I'm only really starting to grasp. It's not an easy task and it's taken a long time. Alas, once you realise that great things truly come from individuality, you'll be forever grateful that whilst everybody was zigging, you were zagging.

I have this feeling as if we're playing some kind of a game. A game of social norms, and I know how to play it but it's still so odd to me at times.

Last night we were stuck in a skytrain packed with people, so we were all up in each other's "space". Everyone was talking away to someone in front of them and whatnot. Then I thought, what if everyone just went silent for a second and then acknowledged all the other people around them.
It's this strange thing that we do where we talk to the people that we "know" and then all the other humans around us are somehow "strangers". I understand one can't possibly talk to everyone but it still weirds me out that we are supposed to ignore each other in this crowded city. And also I know it's tiring to acknowledge everyone, draining of social energy and that's maybe why we don't do it. And that's also maybe why cities are known for making people feel lonely.
Because you have so many people around you and then can't possibly all acknowledge each other hence causing the feeling of loneliness in a crowd.
But we can help alleviate this feeling. Of loneliness in us and others. Let's question the social norms of the city sometimes, let's look at each other in the eye for a second longer and actually acknowledge those around us. Let's be okay with bumping into someone slightly, and not freak out like you committed a crime ahaha. Etc.
Just some Saturday thoughts. Also I'm setting a social norm for y'all to come see me at work sometimes 😂 😘

"The process of growing up gay was always very au natural for me. I never came to a point where I was confused or questioned myself why I was so feminine. I always had a feminine body language and was attracted by feminine antics, trying lipstick on and even trying to fit into my mother’s clothes at times. Being in an all-boys school, I was surrounded by a lot of boys I felt a very strong attraction towards, but I never had to sit myself down and introspect. I knew I was a guy who had feminine preferences and I was always comfortable with it." -Kean Alvares is a makeup artist and an androgynous model from Mumbai, India.

"We have grown old seeing past generations looking for happiness in a wrong way, where there is no difference between individuals. The past looked more homogenised than now and getting a one-life job was the “the key” for happiness, which now sounds old fashioned. Younger generations look for experiences, to live and learn, not to pretend to be like everybody else and not to stay in between what’s acceptable for the rest. Men looking feminine, women looking masculine, people getting desexualised or choosing different ways to live have opened a new way to the future, where dreams can come true by the decisions we make. We are no longer the reflection of society but ourselves." More at www.fiftyshadesofgay.co.in
