It is no secret: Gay guys can be bitches to each other.
During my time as a go-go dancer, I truly deserved whatever negative things were said about me. One time I told a bartender at Fiesta Cantina that he was cute -- while I was sitting on the toilet. Actions like these earned me the nickname "Poop Flirt," which I accepted, proudly.
But other times I am disturbed by the way that gays treat one another. You'd think that in 2014, during this history-making time for LGBT rights, West Hollywood, California, would be the epicenter of gay brotherly love. But, as expected with any community that has been marginalized, bullying can be cyclical, which is why it is no surprise that many gays experience some of the harshest bullying from others in their community.
In the third episode of Go-Go Boy Interrupted, Danny tries to take his mind off his job trouble with his version of meditation: group exercise. However, his calming Pilates class is interrupted when local gays let him know that people are talking about him, and not in a good way.
