Two Years

Hey here's something remarkable: this past week marks the two-year anniversary of Supergay Detroit. Two years, how about that? In the immortal words of Melissa Sue Anderson, Happy Birthday to Me.

If there is one thing I love it's a milestone. It gives you an excuse to stop to reflect and, essentially, think about yourself. And since I quit going to therapy I'm always looking for an excuse.

As a result of this reflecting I recently realized that I've become one of those gay people in Detroit I couldn't find when I moved here. I mean aside from having a gay blog and throwing a gay weekly thing, I'm no longer actively seeking a gay community in Detroit proper. I guess I just ran out of steam on that.

I am now one of those gay people in the city who goes out to all the regular places and meets up with gay friends as occasionally as he meets up with straight friends. I am now one of those gay people I used to see out at Union Street and wonder, "how can I connect with these people?"

The original goal of this blog was to find the gay community in Detroit, and provide a resource for other people out there who were having a hard time finding it too. Now I just don't think about it that much anymore. Apparently, I've been assimilated.

My problem is that I don't know if that's something to be happy about or not.

Congrats on the anniversary! If I was more entertaining I'd comment more, but I read you faithfully.

Congrats on the milestone! I really enjoy reading your posts. They're filled with the same stubborn hope, sarcasm and occasional despair that I think we all share in living here. Now, if you could only throw a gay weekly thing on a weekend night when those of us on the other side of 40 can muster the energy to get out of the house.

Supergay didn't run out of steam, he IS the mutha fuckn' steam- the lavender beacon of spandex and sequins who calls out,"Give me your knob shiners and fudge packers, your huddled meat-hounds yearning to sing 'Cabaret'." Because of Supergay, we know where the Detroit Gay community is: it's wherever we sit our fabulous asses. Viva le Supergay!

congrats on the milestone- i am a detroit-expat-overseas-lurker. i have even done it doggystyle @ the park once or twice. i once tried to find the heart and soul of the detroit gay scene too- until i realised that, unless you are a club bunny or a fetishist, it moves around too much to corner it into one place.
