Hug a Gay Day 2012

0

2nd Feb 2012 is the 5th Annual Hug A Gay Day.

For more details please see my previous posts on this, well worth a read (IMHO):

And to recap:

  • Anyone can hug a gay today (best to ask 1st)
  • Gay guys hugging gay guys is OK – but you do that anyway right?   So its more about str8 mates hugging you to show how cool and modern and metro (if they are a guy) they are.
  • Self hugs don’t count (even if you are gay)

That is all.

Black and White Version: You can hug a gay any day, but especially on 2nd Feb.

Hug a Gay Day 2nd Feb 2011

International Hug a Gay Day

OMG, how did I (almost) miss this one this year!

Yes, 2nd February is once again international hug a gay day (it’s the 4th Annual Hug A Gay day).

Last year I posted about how many were confused about what is was for, and how to hug a gay, so I produced a quick guide.  The full Hug a Gay Day guide is here, and the unwritten rules for Hug a Gay day here, but in a nutshell:

  • Anyone can hug a gay today (best to ask 1st)
  • Gay guys hugging gay guys is OK – but you do that anyway right?   So its more about str8 mates hugging you to show how cool and modern and metro (if they are a guy) they are.
  • Self hugs don’t count (even if you are gay)

The most common question I still get is How long should I hug for? And my reply is that my gay friends said no more than 5 seconds, my straight mates said (on average), around 3.  So let’s say under 4 seconds.  Better still, let’s make it catchy:  Hug for 3, and you’ll be free, hug for 4, and you might get more. (Did that make any sense?  Can you tell I don’t write jingles for a living?)

Oh, and the how to hug video in case you missed it:

Hug a Gay Day – 2nd Feb 2010

1

Yep, today (2nd Feb) is international hug a gay day.

UPDATE: My 2011 post on hug a gay is here (but this post has more info, so read it 1st, along with my unwritten rules guide on how to hug a gay).

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).

The event even has its own face book page (mind you, I guess that’s not saying much, since over 2.5 million people are FaceBook fans of the “I Hate Getting Texts That Only Say “k” page.)

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!

Black and White Version: Hug a gay, we know you want to.
