In an attempt to avoid a HOMOgeneous self-summary I would like to begin by offering my MANdatory qualities in a potential date:
Living in Rome is difficult for someone who doesn't want to just fit into the general population (to live a private gay life) when there is such an important civil rights struggle happening. I can be passionately vocal towards people who vote and argue against gay rights. The 'hate the sin, love the sinner' mentality is tiresome to those of us who are surrounded by it in our daily lives. The 'being gay doesn't define me' mentality in our own community also strikes me as small-minded and apathetic, which is a big turn-off.
I'm fun, cute, smart, extroverted, and inquisitive. Haaay!
