- I don't mind that everyone thinks we're gay

Take gay pride in your straight friendships.

The new Daft Punk album is out, the Tony's were last night, it's finally warm enough for assless chaps—it must be Gay Pride Month!  "Pride" is one of those basic emotions like "compassion" and "empathy" that we're barely capable of experiencing (let alone articulating). If you've got the same problem, this list of 17 shameful ways to show your support for gay pride should help (and you won't even have to change your profile picture). Say it loud and proud on Facebook and Twitter or invite someone to get used to the fact that you're here and queer by making your own.
