Beyond Grindr: Matchmaking in the Gay Marriage Era

| | 0 Comments

We could frequent gay bars, bathhouses, the men’s room in the basement of a local department store, highway rest stops, the steam room at the gym, certain notorious parks, and that was about it. Unfortunately, each of these venues was fraught with a certain amount of danger. In fact, arrests, public embarrassment and gay bashings were a semi-regular hazard of being gay. And regardless of whether we chose to keep our activities underground in an effort to avoid these problems which was the almost universal survival tactic until the early s or to live our lives out loud which became more common after the Stonewall uprising in and the American Psychiatric Association’s removal of homosexuality from its list of mental illnesses in , our venues for meeting potential dates remained the same. I mean, we couldn’t exactly search for partners at church socials, work events, and neighborhood gatherings like our straight brethren, could we? So we sucked it up and faced the occasional issues that came with meeting in gay hotspots, or we resigned ourselves to life as a single person. Sadly, that’s pretty much the way life went for gay men until the Internet came along. After that, of course, the landscape changed pretty quickly. By the mid s, we were meeting not in public spaces but online – in private chat rooms and, within a few years, through dating sites. Needless to say, this made the getting-to-know-you process much, much safer though not necessarily easier.
