I want to sincerely apologize for my long absence from this site. I know bloggers say it all the time, and it rarely means anything, but homonormativity is truly something that is deeply important to me, and I hate not making more time for Homo Normo. However, after a lot of thought I have decided to blend my mission to fight homonormativity with a more casual and relaxed tone, because I’m admittedly not an expert or intellectual when it comes to homonormativity. Instead of trying to mimic the “smarty pants” around me, I’m going to fight homonormativity my way – which includes calling out negative representations, being proud of my fem gay status, and supporting those that homonormativity attempts to push down.
I believe I can do this, and more, with my blog, GAY ON A BUDGET. Every post won’t be specifically about homonormativity, but everything that I put out to the world resists homonormative constructs. So even when I’m not talking about homonormativity, I may still be hinting or poking at it.
Someday, when I have more expertise in the subject, and when I’m a better writer, I may focus on homonormativity in this very academic, scholarly way again. But for now I need to do what’s best for me, and be as honest as I can with readers. I would appreciate any and all support on my new blog, but also understand if it is not your cup of tea.
Thank you everyone for your support on this blog. I wish everyone nothing but the best, and hope to see you on my new blog-o-sphere.
