During an anniversary dinner, a gay couple was shown the door in a Dublin restaurant because other customers didn't like the way they were holding hands. One customer referred to them as "disgusting."
“My partner and I were in a Dublin city centre restaurant celebrating our second anniversary and we were being physically tactile with each other. Not kissing the faces of each other or anything, but holding hands and looking into each other’s eyes.”It only devolved from there. Here's the rest.
“A waiter came to out table and told us that customers at another table were complaining about us. He suggested that we stop showing each other physical affection.”
It still happens, and not just in Dublin. Tony and I pick and choose our restaurants...like everything else we do...with care to avoid things like this happening. I'd rather be on the offensive than the defensive at all times. It's a way of life.
VAT and HIV
This is interesting. I'd never heard about it before this article...
VAT (visceral adipose tissue) is a type of hard fat that can affect people with HIV, surrounding the organs and making it difficult for people to do things like bending over to tie their shoes. Many people don’t know that VAT is different from regular fat. When you think about stomach fat, you normally think about the doughy fat around your midsection that usually can be addressed by a healthy diet and exercise. But VAT doesn’t work that way. It can be challenging to reduce VAT with exercise and healthy living alone.
You can read more about it here. There's also a web site link for VAT.
Power Bottom Appreciation Day
I didn't know this either, which is obviously why I missed posting about all last week. So you'll have to mark the calendar for next year. But it's actually a part of gay culture...according to wiki...I'd never heard mentioned before.
Halloween might be considered the national gay holiday, but you should treat your bottom to a fancy dinner tonight because October 30 is Power Bottom Appreciation Day.
According to the all-knowing Wikipedia, which is always right about absolutely everything, Power Bottom Appreciation Day first originated in the 1980s by “snickering gay men at cocaine-fueled Pampered Chef parties.”
Here's the rest of the article.
There's also a list of other LGBT+ holidays.
