Hi all,

Like you I hope it won't be long before the wider public afford people in the traveling community equality and respect as readily and without suspicion as they do their own. But I'm saddened having read this man's story in the article below and I wonder if the traveling community today mirror the above hope by way of affording equality and respect to its minorities within? Please enlighten me.

What has been your experience? How are you treated? Are you out to people within your community? If it's not easy to be out how do you find romance/relationships? Are LGBT travelers generally open to dating buffers? If so, is that because it's hard to find a partner in the traveling community? Or would you feel, from experience maybe, that it may too hard for buffers to relate to your culture and life experience? I'm genuinely interested.

Thanks for any feedback :-)

It can take people time to warm up especially if they dont know you. It is also a lot of heavy questions in one message...

What has been your experience?
Like most peoples it has being mixed. Some great moments but a lot of sadness.

How are you treated?
Mixed as well. People can just ignore it for the sake of it. The bad days outnumber the good ones.

Are you out to people within your community?
Only a few.

If it's not easy to be out how do you find romance/relationships?
Online sites are great! Pubs less so as less face it people arent always ok with having a tinker in the pub.

Are LGBT travelers generally open to dating buffers?
Depends on the family. I know loads who are. Has to be openess on both sides.

If so, is that because it's hard to find a partner in the traveling community?
Itd be very hard and complicated as youd expect.

Or would you feel, from experience maybe, that it may too hard for buffers to relate to your culture and life experience?
No as I can relate to the settled community even though there can be a lot of hassle between us. Down to the individual.
