‘Tis the season for ugly Christmas sweaters and awkward family get togethers.
We all know what it feels like to be “that relative” at the dinner table, the one who everyone suspects is gay, but nobody wants to talk about it because, oh gosh, we wouldn’t want upset Grandma, even though Grandma’s known for years, and she couldn’t care less because, secretly, you were always her favorite.
OK, OK. So maybe we don’t all know what that feels like. Some of us have been luckier than others in the dysfunctional family department.

Get in my mom’s car at the airport and the first words out of her mouth are “I’m listening to a podcast on gay dating.”

I'm having a big gay Christmas party partly to give my mom that feeling of family time at Christmas but also to make my homophobic father uncomfortable being in a room with ten screaming faggots
