Gay vancouver dating
(GAM stands for gay Asian male, and the website name is a play on ) "This website is about an opportunity for gay Asian men who have experience dating to share something that's going to touch, move or inspire another gay Asian man who is struggling with…his dating life," he told the at a downtown café.
"This is really about community building and self-empowerment."After taking a professional and personal development course about inspiring change within communities, Ho chose to work on a project to address issues within the local gay Asian male community.
When Ho (who is of Chinese descent and is Malaysian-born but Vancouver-raised) came out over 20 years ago, he found the local LGBT community to be a confusing and unwelcoming place."You kind of quickly realize once you start to date, just what type of community the gay community is overall.
There's a lot of discrimination online; you go into bars, you're treated differently; and learning how to navigate that as a brand new gay newbie, coming out can be a little bit of challenge."He said he's heard numerous similar stories, and found that others have either developed coping strategies, given up and decided to remain alone, or simply continued to struggle.
In contrast, he added that he has also encountered others who haven't experience any issues at all."That is awesome," he said.
"That's the story that the community also needs to hear because maybe it's not universal."However, he also said that he does find racial discrimination in dating and socializing can be difficult to identify or pinpoint if it's done indirectly."It's hard to call it racism because it's so covert that you feel like you're just being excluded, like you're just not being invited to things," he said.
