I'm the B and I thought Q meant que*r. I think it used to mean Questioning, though. I'm not sure. I think I'll write LGBTQ+ now. Cover everything haha

Maybe Boston is right and it should be just + but then that covers everything and makes the label pointless. As it should be.

I kind of like "*****" as an all encompassing moniker.

A local example of alphabet soup madness :

College of Charleston' s "LGBTQQAAIP".

Have a migraine yet?

I'm not even gonna try.....LOL

Visit Savannah. Along with Asheville and the big ATL and Savannah are probably the gay-friendliest places in the south, and just a lot more progressive and crunchy. We want you here! Come. Charleston is nice, but... if you visit Savannah I would be interested in hearing your thoughts.

Columbiadata that is interesting to hear and I am glad you are enjoying the city. I found a somewhat opposite experience and felt out of place, since I don't care about Gamecocks or Fox News so I felt very lonely. Maybe I just didn't meet cool people like you!

I don't know if you're serious or making a joke...that's how silly this has gotten. Pretty soon, they'll just list then entire alphabet so as to not offend anyone through exclusion.

By the way, is "pansexual" real? What the hell is that?

From what I know its attraction not based on any gender
construct,seems similar to the other letters but hey whatever
you think works for your own identity.


Frankly, not having labels and just being.....is my ideal but society has to put everyone in a box.

And I label myself as gay so hypocrisy abounds.

Fox News in Columbia? lol

Columbia's Human Rights Campaign's Municipal Equality Index score for gays is 74 (and climbing according to one of my at-large city council members). Savannah's score is 18. Atlanta's is 100. Charleston and Charlotte's are in the 60's. Savannah's got work to do in that arena. And the last time we were there the only gay club we could find was a quiet little hole-in-the-wall basement place with karaoke.
