Well, I suppose i should to the introductory thing. My name is Brad and I am a 20 year old college student in the rather unfortunate state of Mississippi. Because of the..er...nature of my situation I will refrain from being anymore detailed in a forum post but suffice it to say I could definitely use a supportive community even if it is just online. I am hopeful that this will be a helpful place for me and I think it will be. I'm hoping to make some friends so please feel free to drop me a note here or add me on messenger if you'd like to chat. I do intend to try to keep up with the site and do some posting so hey there, hi there and hello and i look forward to talking will anyone who happens to want to.

I will wish you a warm welcome. I have been in some unfortunate states, but never in the unfortunate state of Mississippi. :D Actually I have sort of missed the entire southeast altogether. This is a good place to meet some nice people. Just jump into the discusions and let us get to know you.
Tu Amigo, Pablo

I hope you'll be able to meet some of your wants/needs here -- anonymity can help those who are not in a safe situation to speak openly and let anyone know who they are.
Stick around and get to know some of the gang. We're (usually) a warm and friendly bunch. :)
Mississippi? I've driven through there several times. I grew up back at the east coast and went to school in Texas, so I used to drive through part of MS on the way back and forth, between semesters. In fact, Picayune was my regular stopping over place. :D
Love the gulf coast weather - I thrive in warm, humid places. And look where I live now. :rolleyes::rolleyes::( :lol: Anyway - I've heard from those who've lived there that there isn't a whole lot that's fun or cultural going on around MS. What do you think? Is there?

Never heard of 'em....:p
Nah, its not exactly a cultural no mans land..but its probably about as close as you can get :D I do manage to have fun (when I'm not overloaded with classwork, papers and research projects) with my small collection of real-world friends and even manage to see the symphony every once in a while given that I'm so close to the State Capital. Over all it could be much worse, of course, but it could be a whole lot better.
Thanks Pablo, for the warm welcome and I'm sure I'll find my way into some discussions/arguments:p soon enough.
Zerbie, I have never been to Picayune, though I do know a couple of people fro the area. The coast is nice i guess if you like th beach...but I don't.

Hello, I hope you find what you are looking for here. We are friendly and have a lot of good discourse. Of course, we have some good arguing also! But, don't be shy and jump right in and you'll find that it's a great place to be!
I'm in Michigan, West Michigan, and we are JUST getting some fun and culture here. We now have 4 gay bars in Grand Rapids(where I'm at. I don't know much about where you are from, sadly I am traveler challenged. I don't have a lot of travel under my belt yet, but the next big spot I want to go with my wife is San Fran, my best friend lives in Sebastapol, CA and it's only 20 mins from there. She told me that the Pride fest there is AWESOME!

Hey! Welcome! College can be tough, and I live in a somewhat conservative area myself. I feel at times like I'm drowning in a sea of straightness... But there are others like me here! Does your campus have a Gay-Straight Alliance or a 10% Society???
There are some cool people here, and even thought it's "just online" I could swear some of these folks are my long lost sisters and brothers!! Take care, wish you the best.
