WELCOME TO KNOW STIGMA
Welcome to the home of Know Stigma. We want to create a conversation around how we treat each other as gay, queer, bi, trans, and straight men.
Like everyone, we come in all different shapes, colors and sizes. Like everyone, we have our biases and prejudices. These get played out a lot on hookup or dating sites – “No Asians, no fatties, no femmes, etc.” – but we believe it runs deeper than simply sexual tastes or attractions. Many of us are made to feel invisible because of age, body type or skin color. A lot of us feel ostracized for having HIV or for using drugs.
How can we say what we want without hurting others? How do we imagine our actions and words might make someone else feel?
We hope to inspire conversations that are both courageous and healing.
