a small rant

WTF? So, I live in a small town for two years, but close enough to Springfield that you'd think I could dredge up a little gay culture SOMEWHERE, but unfortunately much internet perusing, checking out papers on a regular basis, and even emailing the so-called "lesbian outreach" (and getting NO reply) turned up nothing except a couple gay bars, which wasn't really what I was looking for. But now that I'm in the process of moving back to Chambana which I KNOW has a lot more in the way of (acessible) gay culture, I come home for a couple days, and what do I see in the bulletin board of the paper but a place that has two or three different groups for GLBTQ youth and young adults that meet on a weekly basis!! And they have a website, which when I check it out looks like something that's been around for awhile (a couple years)!!!!! Yet somehow I was magically never able to find it when I wanted it! Sigh. Annoyingness, is all I have to say. But I'm over it. Because I am going to go email some people right now, and find out which GLBT groups meet in Champaign over the summer. And then I am going to go to one. It will be a new but hopefully exciting! And I'm going to meet some girls. Hopefully some nice girls....
