Why Gay Happy News?

I, like many in the GLBTQ community, lead a rather ordinary life.  I have a job, a partner, a mortgage, dogs, cats, blah, blah blah.  I’m an average American who also happens to be gay.

I’m not an activist, but I’m so very grateful for those who are. I, like many of you, just hope that my life and knowing me will help change individual hearts and minds.  I write the occasional email to my Congressmen and donate time and money to GLBTQ activist groups, but basically, I’m leaving the activism to the pros. I’m just not cut out for it.

However, I do want to stay in the loop in GLBTQ news, so I peruse multiple web sites to find the stories that matter to me.  But several weeks ago I realized that when I did this, I got really antsy and fidgety.  So what’s up? It was having to read the ugly headlines about the Haters stressing me out.

This religious leader says this.  This protest happened here.  This legislation shot down. This random person said this hateful thing.  Most days, I just don’t want to hear it because the majority of the time, it simply doesn’t really matter.

The recent Miss California thing is such a great example.  I just don’t consider the opinion of this one individual person to be news. The media have made it news, but is it really? Personally, I don’t think so.

So here at Happy Gay News, we silence the Haters.  We don’t give them a voice.  We don’t publish the bad news.  We don’t publish the whining.  We don’t publish the bickering.  We don’t publish the hating.

We publish the progress. We publish the happy news.  We publish the fun stuff. We publish the good stuff.

People can argue all day long if being gay is a choice (personally, I’m glad to be gay, so I don’t care if it is nature or nurture or both), but happiness really is a choice.  So if the Haters are getting you down, you can always come here for a pick-me-up.  Choose happiness…you deserve it.

You are a fabulous human being. Please don’t forget that. ♥

Hello gay world! We’re here to make you happy!

I read lots of gay blogs, gay news sites, and gay advocacy sites.  I like to be informed, but there are some days that I just want the good news.  Some days I’ve heard enough of the bad news, and I just want the Happy Gay News.  So I searched for a place that filtered the news for me, and alas, there was none.

So here we are.  I’ll do it myself and share it with you.

Have a happy day!  I love your LGBTQ self!

A Quick Note to the Haters

In theory, I don’t believe in censorship.  HOWEVER, the purpose of this site is to be a purely positive site.  Therefore, if you insist on posting something negative, I will delete you.

If you want your voice to be heard, I’m OK with that.  If you want to debate, I’m OK with that.  Just go do it somewhere else, please.

Thank you.  I love you, even if you don’t love me. ♥
