01/18/2013 – “Ladies Choice: ‘Gay Gamers’ or ‘Aging in the LGBT Community’

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hola Gays!!

This week it’s ladies choice at Gay District!  We have two options for this week’s discussion, so come and the vote will be majority rules.

A. First, gay gaming!  Whether it’s Xbox, Wii, Playstation, Super Nintendo, or Atari, the gays have long had a great affinity for their games.  What are your favorites?  What are your earliest memories?  Did you as a nascent gayby feel the first atwitters of feelings for men begin with the bulging biceps of Mortal Kombat?  Do you feel out of place with your combined gaming and gayness, if you consider yourself part of both groups?

B. Second, aging in the gay community.  What are the attitudes about age in the gay community?  What dating or looking for a partner, do you have limits on age?  What are your attitudes about someone who dates someone out of a “normal” age range, whether older or younger?

1/11/2013: Winter Staycations

It’s winter time (although this weekend’s temperatures may not make it seem so), and a perfect time to stay in and snuggle up. Or get out and have fun in the cold. So what’s your favorite winter past times in and around DC?

This week we will chat about our favorite winter hang out spots with friends, and those even closer to us, in the area. Do you have a special dish to cook and invite friends over on especially cold nights? Do you like to go ice skating or skiing? Let’s come up with a top 10 list of our favorite winter staycations this evening, and then make plans to do them all before the spring!

As always, we will meet at the same time and place, with some winter nosh to follow discussion. See you all there!
