How to stop being bullied at your own booth
It’s not a question of whether a booth can be offensive, but when it’s not.
A few years ago, a friend asked me what I’d like to see happen to my booth, which was a bar in downtown Miami.
I had a lot of ideas.
It would be a space for people to hang out, a place where we could drink and talk and maybe go to a dance.
If I had to pick one, I’d love to see my booth become the home of a club.
But it was the idea of my friend’s friend that made me laugh the most.
He was a member of the Gay Pride Parade and we shared a few drinks and joked around about how much we enjoyed it.
At first I didn’t know how to respond.
The way I would react to the gay community in general was, I’m not gay, you’re gay, and I think you should be proud of being gay.
Instead, I realized that I had been thinking about that person in a very different way.
I felt that they were the same person.
And if I was to change the way I responded to them, I felt like I was changing the way that I treated them.
In fact, when I was looking for ways to better respond to the people I was in the presence of, I found the perfect way to say that I was happy to be in their presence.
My booth is an extension of my community and I can’t wait to see where we go from here.
I think that’s why I love being a gay bar.
And I think I’ve learned how to love myself in the process.
