“First Gay Hug (A Homophobic Experiment)”

21 Mar

I’ve watched “First Gay Hug” by the Gay Women Channel on youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j1WEtFFPVBU) a few times today. I appreciate it. And it’s making me think that maybe we should talk more about heterophobia, which I would define as the reasonable fear of heterosexual people and heterosexist attitudes, words and actions. As brave as these heterosexual folks are to hug people they see as being or doing things that are wrong or “gross,” I’m humbled by the bravery it takes their gay partners to lean in and hug it out.
