I fucking love you
I want more queer friendship stories. Not just stories where the only two queer people find each other and fall in unhealthy codependent love in a sea of cishets. Give me whole communities of queer people. Give me queer best friends gushing to each other about their silly crushes. Give me younger queers going to older queers for advice and guidance, without getting creeped on. Give me queer friends cuddling and watching tv together, or baking cookies together, or a big group of diverse queer people fighting about where to go out to eat because everyone has a different favorite place, but ultimately they decide to go to everyone’s favorite place at least once and just flip a coin or something to decide who’s turn it is to pick. Give me queer friends from different cultures bonding over sharing their cultural differences. Give me queer people starting college or moving for a new job and learning how to be a part of a new community full of other queer people.
Romance is nice and all, and queer romance needs more representation. But friendship is every bit as important, and more important to some people. I don’t want to hear stories where I have to hope I find that one other queer person to be happy with and then shut out the rest of the world. I want community.
Let me just tell you how awesome seeing this post is. I am bissexual and having people look at me with the idea that they shouldn’t try to be friends with me because I’ll try to hook up with them or not being able to be friends with people because they look at me like since I’m bissexual I’ll fuck anything I see in front of me is really hard. I feel out of place most of the time, and when I find people that get it… it’s kinda awesome. It’s kind of really fucking awesome that sometimes people look at me and say ‘yeah I feel you’.
AND I’ve finally found a show that gets close to that.
The show is called Looking (It’s HBO so expect a lot of sex and romance) and it is about three gay guys that are best friends. They are actually friends and like together all the time and talking about their boyfriends and crushes, and it is really nice. I showed it to a friend of mine one and she didn’t like it but I’m guessing that queer people see something different in it. They see the bonds that those three have. And some of us don’t have that in real life. Hell, I don’t have that in real life. My guy friends that know that I’m bissexual think that because of that I’m totally fine with them talking all kinds of things about girls when I’m around and treat me like a guy (which I am fine with but not because of my sexuality), and my girl friends either get uncomfortable around me or are like ‘you, you hook up with girls, why does [ex-boyfriend’s name] think [girl he is dating now] is hotter than me?’
People that don’t go through it can research and look for information all they want, but they will never actually get what we go through. Only queer people get queer people, and it is so important to have something that shows that on TV. Thank you for this post. Now I’ll stop talking. (also watch Looking. It is actually pretty nice)
