In 1978, an all-male gay American band hit the pop charts with a song called, It’s Fun to Stay at the YMCA. The band was known as the Village People and went on to have a string of hit songs including, Macho Man and In the Navy. The gay community idolised this band, and heterosexuals also flocked to buy their recordings.
Back in the 70s, no one took much notice of the gay community and most gay men were looked upon as being somewhat ‘sexually-perverted’.
These days, due to huge events like Mardi Gras, and gay marriage legalisation, the gay community is attracting more public attention than ever.
However, this has prompted members of the public to ask more questions about gay men. The public are now learning more about the emotional wellbeing of gay men. Thanks to the internet, they are also learning more about the sexual practices of some gay men.
Google internet search has seen to it that gay men’s most explicit sex acts are there for all to see. As such, many of the general public are somewhat shocked by how sexually ambitious some gay males are. As a result, large numbers of the public are now slowly but surely dropping their support for gay men. Scores of recent surveys show that even the younger generation are not supporting gay men, as they did in 2015.
It would seem the popularity of gay men has peaked, and from here there can be only one direction – and that’s down!
As I write in my ebook, Gay Men Explained:
“It just remains to be seen how long it takes for the rot to set in, and gay men feel compelled, or maybe even forced, to go back to what they were in the late 1970s and ‘80s – just a large bunch of low key guys not into anything much, except themselves and each other.”
