Hello from South America
December 20, 2011 11:43PM
Hello everybody, I'm a bisexual vegetarian from Italy, living in Bogotá, Colombia.
I'm not new here but I've been lurking around and wanted to introduce myself.
There's doesn't seem to be a shortage of vegetarians, or at least flexitarians, around here. There are very few LGBT ones though – I only know about a gay guy on my university.

Why does the LGBT community seem to love meat even more than straight people?

Several years ago I became vegetarian after spending a week with a gay veg boy that I met while on vacation in Canada. At first I thought there were probably a large number of vegetarian LGBT people. I thought "Hey gay guys are sensitive... gay people are up on the issues." In the past several years I've only met 3 others. Most of the gay guys I know don't understand at all why someone would be vegetarian and don't care too. I will date non-veg because that's all that seems to be out there. I would love a vegetarian boyfriend! Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places or maybe they are mythical creatures like unicorns.

Almost the same here. I'm starting to think LGBT vegetarians are harder to find than Santa Claus.
I'm currently dating a meat eater – in fact I've never dated vegetarians. Fortunately everyone has been (more or less) accepting – everyone, that is, except for a boyfriend some four years ago who tried, repeatedly, to make me leave my ways; he was also biphobic, by the way. I guess I'll never understand how did I last so long with him.
