or is it because most of your social circle are gay?

Would a straight person think similar, that all the straights are leaving?

Easier for them to leave?
No spouses or children to worry about?
More adventurous?
Look at it as an opportunity to travel, see the world, learn about other cultures?
Get away from home and have a bit of freedom, be able to live more openly?

possibly all of the above ............. will gay bars/clubs be sustainable with a smaller
lgbt population.

alternative miss ireland is drawing to an end next year . . . . . will the community be less visible?

According to the Vintners, how many pubs have shut down of late?

In the perfect world there really should be no need for 'gay' bars.
Gay ghettos need not exist. Once people accept that sexuality is fluid and that pretty much the entire spectrum is 'normal'.
That should take, what, another year or two at most?

Oh yeah, two years AT MOST. Then (suddenly) we will see men holding hands in Main St. Celbridge and Main St. Portlaoise and zero eyelids will be batted by the locals.
Of course, within 18 months this will be happening in Phibsboro.


On a serious note, if David Norris gets elected, that would accelerate acceptance, but with so many people on this website not even voting for him....

Or not even voting at all, thus mechanically increasing McLager's and Dana's and Gay's share...

I cant see Norris being elected, but I wouldnt think he would make being gay mor acceptable. Too many skeletons in his closet, I dont think he would help the cause at least!

If he were elected it would mean these skeletons have turned to dust in the eye of the public opinion.

Maybe too a point, but those letters for clemency would still leave people guessing!

Very true.

I hope it would force him to keep his discourse on age of consent in check, I would hope.
Whoever is elected, s/he needs to be kept in check on the issues that were raised during the campaign, and in spite of which s/he got elected.

David Norris has not been and is not the only pro gay rights politician in this country. Robinson and McAleese were very important in their promotion of pro gay rights attitudes in this country.
