Greetings and salutations one and all! Newbie here (obviously) who will try to keep his introductory blather to a minimum.
My name is Chris, but I go here by winter moon's light. I am a gay man in my late 20's who lives in the beautiful state of Oregon. I am a freelance writer who supplemented his income by working in retail until being laid off last August. Good riddance though, I worked for a company that isn't known exactly for their open-mindedness (couldn't bring my boyfriend at the time to their Halloween party)
As far as hobbies go, I enjoy horror novels/movies, writing about anything and everything which strikes my interest (political pieces and nostalgic pop culture articles are my standard fare however.) I am a compulsive smoker who actually does enjoy the art of it (can't go a day without using my hookah with some yummy apple and banana flavored shisha.)
Despite Oregon being a fairly liberal state, I still endure trials and tribulations here and there because of my sexuality. I have family problems because of it, but I try to keep a positive outlook on things regardless.
Anyway, glad to have found the site. Don't know too many other LGBT people in my area so I'm looking forward to connecting with others in the community. Thanks for listening to my ramble, I promise I'm not always like this lol.
Nice to meet you all!
