Being gay isn’t that easy. We all have our story and we all know that most of us went through rough times vying for identity recognition. Growing up in a all-boys Catholic school made it a bit easier because there are people there whom one can relate. You won’t feel that you’re alone being gay.
Once you surpass the feelings of shame and sinfulness (hopefully with a great positive result or influence), you then try to move on with your life, accepting that you are a homosexual and that nothing is wrong with it. After you’ve done this, you will start to feel comfortable about who you are and people around you will feel the same as well. Because unless you are comfortable being you, others will be uncomfortable too.
The next step is pairing. Someone, somewhere out there will find you and pair with you. Getting to know each other, the lovey-dovey display of affection. All are the same process as straight couples. After this, you settle. For straight couples, they plan for children and for some of us too. But mostly, gay couples that settle do not plan on having children. The result? They have combined their incomes, bought their dream homes, and still have disposable income. What to do with it? TRAVEL.
One site called Travel Directory, a comprehensive travel directory offering great ideas to help you plan your next trip. It has great vacation ideas, you can upload your travel photos, suggest vacation rentals and and more, you will notice that they have a full sections for gay travelers. Because the ‘pink dollar’ is mighty. There is a huge amount of gay travelers and the market is still being called ‘untapped territory’.
I like to travel myself, and I have only been to a few places but if you compare me to my sister who’s married – they rarely travel because if they do, the cost would be enormous counting all her four kids into the expense. It is all a matter trade-off. They have kids, we don’t. We can travel more than they can (not generalizing here). Don’t get me wrong, I love kids and will probably have them someday. But for now, I like traveling and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that – Is there?
