We’ve asked online comedian, voice actor and chest hair model Sam Kalidi to create a comedic post each week for Queerty readers. This week he reflects on when your young gay pal takes the plunge for the first time. Sam looks forward to all your hate mail. You can find him onTwitter, Facebook, Instagram and at your local glory hole.
See an example below.

It depends on the person. We are more creative for sure.
Yes. Yes we are.
FELIZ ANO NOVO!
It’s because we’re forced to work overtime so much for all the straight parents going to kids’ soccer games or whatever.
We are more fabulous in the work place. It’s true my lovelies.
Not many of the MD’s at my place have kids (at least in the US). The C-levels have kids but they’ve had help. I don’t have kids, I’m an ED…fingers crossed I could yet be a MD.
I was on a temp job in NYC with this person twice. The first time, he/she was in mens’ clothing and the second time he/she was dressed in women’s clothing. While dressed as a woman the second time, “she” was talking and started off a sentence with “I remember when I was a little girl …” The thing is,
With all of the people looking for working in NYC, how does a guy in women’s clothing manage to get temp work?
Did you go acronyonym on us? What’s this Aldous Huxley Brave New World stuff mean?
@onthemark: That’s unlikely because games for kids usually happen on weekends though. Schools know that parents work.

hierarchy at *some* financial firms
ED=Executive Director (possible precursor to MD – most places have just plain Director, Sr. Director, then MD)
C-level=Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chief Marketing Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operations Officer, Chief Technology/Info Officer, Chief Investment Officer, etc.
Thanks. Not since reading the Hobbit have I needed a dictionary. Sounds like a fancy world you inhabit, Glucklich.
@Masc Pride: Whatever – always some rugrat-related excuse for why they MUST leave at 5 and stick us queers with the o/t.
Usually. It’s a defense mechanism to insure some level of security by being very good at your job. Although some ruin it for others by poor performance & attitude, most are very very good at what they do.
I would say as a general rule, we are more competent in the workplace, and savvy employers know this.
@Glücklich: I asked my sister — who’s worked in similar settings her entire career — what ED meant. Her response was “erectile dysfunction” because of all the stress and pressure that everyone above puts on them.
@onthemark: I’ve never seen that happen, but I have known some women that use their “lady days” to go home early. I’d imagine a gay guy could easily use some PrEP-related sickness to cut out early too. Just be creative.
@Masc Pride: It’s common for childless workers to get stuck with o/t. This includes hetero singles as well, but since I was out at all my office jobs I thought of the gay angle first. One poster has already agreed with me, and I don’t know why you’re so dubious about this.
It happens a lot in typical office jobs and even in retail, Masc Pride, but I assume you have some very “butch” job so maybe it’s different in the particular Walmart warehouse you work at.
@onthemark: Not sure why you’re taking this so personally. I said it’s never been my experience. I didn’t say you were lying about your experiences. However, lots of people use excuses to leave work early. Instead of being so salty, just think of a way you can leave work early too. According to you, all it takes is to have a kid, which the gays are doing these days.
@SamKalidi Please at least give credit to the creator of the original video, that’s just good manners. He’s hilarious and deserves all the “suscribes” on YouTube. His name is Brandon Rogers, his channel is HotBananaStud. OMG Grandpa character is the best thing ever.
I have worked with all sorts and am generally negative and pessimistic. I have never met a gay man or lesbian that I’ve worked with that I would consider useless on the job, EVER.
