Hug a Gay Day – 2nd Feb 2010
Initially I though there was some controversy about the day – yes, DRAMA! No, no, not in THAT way. But because some sites refer to it as the 2nd Annual Hug A Gay Day, and some as the 3rd Annual Hug a Gay Day. This would have caused some issues, but my investigative skills triumphed (well more like I actually read the dates on web pages) and discovered all the “2nd Annual” pages were from 2009. So I can official announce that it’s the THIRD ANNUAL HUG A GAY DAY. Phew, controversy over on that one! (Oh, I better future proof this post – if you are reading this in 2011, it’s the forth).
Anyway, I am not sure of the protocol on this one (no one sent me the gay manual), but I figure it’s less about gay people giving each other a hug (since they do that all the time anyway – you know, being all liberal and all), but more about the NON gay-folk hugging the GAY-Folk. So, there it is. If you are not gay, prove it .. go hug a gay. If you are gay .. ummm .. well, keep being gay and go help the non gay-folk out and break the ice by inviting a hug. If this results in the occasional straight-straight hug (coz some guy or girl looked gay and wasn’t) then that’s OK, but try to keep those to a minimum OK – focus people!
Disclaimer: If you follow my advice above, and get beaten up coz you didn’t pick the right place to try it, don’t blame me!
