Entitled “Here’s One Brutal Truth Every White Gay Man Needs to Hear,” the first-person piece — worth a read in its entirety — finds journalist Matthew Rodriquez discussing his experiences as a Latino gay man, sharing examples of the discrimination he regularly faces on dating apps.
“Gay white men were born gay, but they were also raised and socialized as white men — the social group vested with the most privilege in America,” he begins. White, gay men set the standard against which other gay men’s attractiveness is measured.” Rodriquez says that the only way to “eradicate racism within the gay community” is for white gay men to “acknowledge their privilege — and the way it’s used, in ways subtle and not, to denigrate minorities.” He goes on to discuss his own firsthand experiences of how his skin color impacts the way he interacts with the gay community at large: “Like other black and brown gay men, I feel the effects of racism in everyday interactions with white gay men. How you comport yourself on there matters.” Related: This Is Nelson.
