Research Study at SAIT [Oct. 23rd, 2008|05:03 pm]
Calgary GLBT
[Current Location |Lethbridge, AB]
[Emotional Wellbeing |productive]

Hi there,

My name is Meg Ebsworth, and I'm a psychology researcher at the University of Lethbridge. I study human sexuality; specifically, I study sexual orientation. Right now I'm doing a study of bisexuality. Next week I will be coming to Calgary to try to find some additional participants to help with my study. I was hoping to let this community know about this opportunity, in case anyone here might be interested, or knows anyone who might be interested.

I am currently looking for bisexual men aged 18-35 to participate in a study that involves looking at a series of photographs and rating sexual attractiveness, as well as filling out a brief questionnaire. The study will take about 45 minutes to complete and participants will be paid $20 in appreciation for their time. Participation in the study is confidential and all data collected will remain completely anonymous. The study is under the supervision of the Department of Psychology of the University of Lethbridge, and will take place at the UofL's Calgary campus at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) between October 30th and November 7th, 2008.

If anyone is interested in receiving more information about the study or becoming a participant, please contact me at lethbridgesexresearch@gmail.com. Please put 'Calgary' in the subject line of the e-mail.


Thank you,

Meg Ebsworth, primary researcher

I posted an ad on Craigs list to find someone who would show me the ropes when making love to a woman and I'm getting responses from married couples who are looking for a third to spice up their sex life.  I want to be with a woman first before I even consider a three some.  It states that in my ad, do people read?

Money Pennies- Saturday [Aug. 6th, 2008|10:19 am]
Calgary GLBT

[Emotional Wellbeing |amusedamused]

Sadly this community is rather dead, isn't it?

Just an FYI for all gaymos about the drag queen show happening at Money Pennies on Saturday. I went to the last show and it was great- good energy, sassiness, and in an intimate setting so it feels a little more interactive. I believe it begins at 900PM and there wasn't any sort of charge for the show.

Maybe you can make it out- peace!

I thought I was just a Lesbian but I'm Bi... [Jul. 12th, 2008|04:52 pm]

[Emotional Wellbeing |confusedconfused]

Last year I came out of the closet because I was overwhelmingly attracted to women so I thought I was just another lesbian.  I've been living the past year as a lesbian minus the sex cause I wanted my first time with a woman to be special.  The past four months I've been finding myself attracted to men so I've been quite confused.  Am I a lesbian or not?  All that I do know is that I want to be loved and if that love comes from a man or a woman I don't care so I guess I'm bi and there's nothing wrong with that.  Since I don't know how to express myself but I know how I feel.

Queer Liberationist or Gay Assimilationist? [May. 19th, 2008|09:31 am]
Calgary GLBT

There are two opposing political viewpoints when it comes to advocacy and than of course there are a variety of more moderate middleground opinions that fall in between the Queer Liberationists and Gay Assimilationist camps.

Gay Assimilationists - This ideology is to make gay/lesbian people seem like average, normal everyday citizens in the eyes of the general public. They want to make the case that gay families deserve equal rights and recognition and they want what everyone else wants: a house with a white picket fence and 2.5 kids. Some Gay Assimilationists are not inclusive of Bisexuals or Transgender people because they feel these groups hurt the gay rights movement. This is not the case for all Assimilationists and many seek to include all LGBT people and create a sense of assimilation into the general society. Gay Assimilationists often seek to advance their agenda through corporate sponsorships and see getting big business and government on their side as a way to advance equality. The assimilationists strive to paint the LGBT community as being no different than the heterosexual world and just want to fit in. They want the rights to marriage, the rights to adoption, to serve freely and openly in the military. Part of achieving these means, Gay Assimilationists seek to tone down the sexual aspect of gay pride, they feel that sexuality is one component of gay relationships and seek to emphasize much more the loving, financial, community, and faith based aspects of LGBT relationships.

Queer Liberationists - This camp of political theory views gender and sexuality in non-conformist ways. They do not apologize for the differences of Queer individuals and do not seek to "fit in". They embrace the idea of "We're Here, We're Queer, Get Used to it!" and believe society must change to accept them rather than they change to mold into hetero-normative society. Queer Liberationists are often but not always concerned with Queer issues as they relate not only to LGBT people but also to capitalism, anti-militarism, sexism, racism and other aspects of social justice. They are less concerned with same-sex marriage, adoption, and don't ask don't tell. Many times but not always they are against the institution of marriage altogether, feel gays are liberated from the idea of raising kids, and are against gays serving in the military because they are anti-military to begin with. Queer Liberationists often disagree with the idea of corporate partnerships and having big business and government intervene in LGBT issues. Queer Liberationists do not seek to hide their sexuality and gender expression, they seek to embrace it and encourage what has conventionally been frowned upon as inappropriate.

These are two diametrically opposed political camps. Most people have various opinions that don't fall so heavily into one party or the other. Where do you lie and what are your thoughts?
