Queer dating nyc
When I arrived, it was mostly sex shops, bars and pizza joints lining the blocks.The first safe space I found was Chi Chiz, the last black gay bar New York, which closed in 2010."Unbothered" was a term I heard retorted after baseless criticisms and transphobic microaggressions.The trans girls were "unbothered" by the snickers and long stares of curious tourists and new, nervous neighbors slowly gentrifying the area. Some transwomen engaged in sex work to survive; homeless gay teens, left in the cold by the families who were meant to protect them, mixed with happy hour patrons at late night bar crawls.
All Flame Con bathrooms were gender-neutral, and the event provided stickers attendees could wear that identified their pronouns like She/Her/Hers, They/Them/Theirs or simply said “Just Ask Me.” Like most cons, Flame Con had an exhibition hall where comic book artists, authors, and all types of creatives gathered to show off their wares to the excited crowd.
It was a sweltering day in Brooklyn, but the heat didn’t put a damper on the fun at Flame Con, NYC’s first queer comic con.
The feeling in the air (besides the humidity) was that of community as LGBTQI folks and allies gathered to check out interesting panels, special guests, artists promoting their work, and entertainment.
As a result, I now have a pretty good idea of how to rapidly find a new apartment or roommate anywhere.
I spend the majority of my time in NYC, so let’s start there…I always see people post saying “Hey I’m looking for a roommate,” but that’s too vague and doesn’t enable others to quickly help you. Below are some groups and pages you should absolutely post to.
The con was put on by Geeks OUT, an organization that actively works to promote queer visibility and celebration in the geek community.
