PostSubject: Know any out travellers   Thu Oct 01, 2009 5:06 am

Do people know any out travellers? Being asking about and I think the Admin is and I heard of two guys here in Athlone and another two up the north. Also a lesbian in Tullamore. But Im wondering if theres many more out.out there? (Without names as itd be murder) i know one owns a shop in town.hard to even talk to him as id be a bit afraid of being guilty by assosiation, you know?
With traveller inclusion itd be nice to see travellers activly involved with other groups. Supporting traveller causes and being vocal about traveller issues (and there serious issues) in places where theres no mention at all! This site could and I hope will change lives! If you dont know any would you ever come out?

London i totally agree answers black and white dont work when lifes in full colour! Think its something best done slowly at our own pace. Think its great though that some are out its better then none and shows a real change

PostSubject: your traveller pride you will not hide being gay shuld be the same   Tue Oct 06, 2009 8:57 am

hey guys i got sent this link by a friend and i said i would have a look and see whats happening, i myself was brought up in one of the largest traveller estates in ireland the bullring tralee and i know that they where alot of gay travellers living there, but most got married and lived unhappy lives and some commited suacide and then they where the very small few like myself that got away from that life and became happy..alot of young travellers today are taking there own lifes becuase they dont no where to turn for help that is why i have set up a bebo page and chat site for gay travellers
and people who would like to meet gay travellers (http://www.bebo.com/gaytravellers) also (http://gaytravellers.ning.com/) the chat site was only set up so its abit quite for now..but if yourselfs are anyone you know want to add me on bebo then your more then welcome to..also there are aproximatly 7,500 gay travellers in the republic of ireland alone so where not alone..

Bet some of it is assumption but ya theres totally a few gay travellers out there! I know one married guy that people talk a lot about because of some drunken antics. Seein as we usually get married at such a young age I can only but wonder of how many of us are with people and horribly unhappy.

hey guys well according to the statistics its not far wrong, but not accurate, i know about 40 gay travellers in london alone and alot from cork, kerry and dublin that i have met in clubs, pubs and on chat sites, like gaydar, bebo and twitter over the years,so there is alot of gay travellers out there,its just finding out who they are..a;ot of travellers cant use internet and alot won't go to gay bars or clubs so alot are still very in the closet and confuseds as they have no where to turn, there's 2 traveller men in london that have lived together for over 20 years and i know thease guys personnaly..

i know a lot of gay travellers, many have choosen to marry as a way of cover up, which to me is sad but there choice ,

Only a few have had the guts to come out. and fair play to them.



As for me it was very hard to come out but i did at a very young age of 15teen, times were different then, travellers thoughts was different and ways of life also different.
