Gay Spotters In LA?

Thu Sep 11, 2003 6:26 am

Hey

ANyone out there into spotting from the LA area? Was looking for cool gay guys (and anyone else) that might be into airliners to hang with. Email me if interested, maybe we could get a group going.

Oh for crying out loud. He asked a simple question. Maybe he knows plenty of straight spotters already?! Consider that.

Who cares if he may know a lot of straight spotters. Why the hell would it even matter if they're gay or straight?

Also, Alpha 1, I agree, we need KROC here now.  Smile

Well, I guess I'll clarify...anyone is welcome, I don't really care one way or another. But I just posted that cause for st8 people, you can meet each other anywhere, at work, on street in bar, etc. For gay people it isn't that easy. I'm a pretty active gay guy in LA, in my 20s that knows a lot of gay people and straight people alike. But none of the gay people I know, like aviation. I guess I was looking for a longer term interest in spotting and such w/ people as well. Not just a one time spotting thing, but a friend that has the same common interest. I felt by establishing myself early on might have helped. Being gay is really a small part to me, but I love aviation and I have never met anyone who also happens to be gay that likes it as much as me. So I thought I'd use to forum to throw it out...not a slide on anyone.

LOL Think about it for a minute. Put your thinking cap on. Why would he want a gay spotter to come along with him rather than a straight spotter?

If that's too difficult for you, think of it this way. Why would you rather have a straight female come spotting with you rather than a gay male?

I don't think he's looking for fellow spotters to head them out to the airport for a blind date.  Insane

I wouldn't consider a busy airport a good place to try and ask someone out. If I was still a single teenager, I wouldn't really care if it was a straight female or gay male going to take pictures of planes, because I sure as hell would know that that wouldn't be the best way to pick up a girl.

Oh please, NWA742, I'm sorry you think that! Now I see you are someone that is just going to use this post to give yourself a good time in making fun and displaying your own misinformed perceptions . FYI, I can meet anyone for longterm romantic type thing, anywhere else but an airport. But maybe you can tell me where I could meet cool people who have common interest in aviation? If not this site, where? And now I'm seeing, maybe some staight people aren't that cool as well....

Can you read? I said that I DON'T think that you're trying to find a date at the airport.

You guys dont get it.

You hang out with your gay spotter friends, look at airplanes, and discuss why a China Southern 777 REALLY REALLY needs a makeover. Or why a short and stubby A319 is just BORING. And if you can spot a Singapore Girl who is a "Singapore-not-really-a-girl." Or which flight is surrounded by the hunkiest baggage handlers.

Its "Gay Sight for the Straight Flight."

Yeah, straight spotters DO have cooties... Eeeeeewwwwwwww.

I will be in LA (Santa Monica) from the 12th. I fly out tomorrow for work for a week and will have this weekend with spare time up my sleeve.

I haven't organised anything with anyone as yet as I have a tonne of work things and work related schmoozing to do..

Although a meet up with Matt D is always on the card. LOL

Surprisingly enough, there have only been two requests, but this thread has earned it as well.

I say leave the guy alone! His reasoning was pretty self explanatory!
whats wrong with enjoying a hobby with like minded people?.... Regardless of what comes under that 'like minded' bracket!

I would say you are just giving him grief- because its easy, and because u can!- no real need for it!

Good luck deltaflyertoo!

It's hard to read this thread with a straight face.  Big grin

It's a legitimate question, but you just have to know that you'll get the shaft big time for your question. Looking at airplanes has nothing to do with sexual preference, so that's why many people find it, uh, strange. But nonetheless, in California you'll find many gay aviation enthusiasts I'm sure! Good luck in your search. hehehe

What if I posted that I wanted to meet up with other female spotters in Seattle? Would that be as shaft worthy?

I am not sure I want an answer to that last question...  Smile

Thats a really good point ScarletHatlot. But really i dont think it would. i think everyone would get excited and head out to LAX to watch and see if you find another girl....hehe. I know you didnt mean it but it really is a good point. But Delta knew he was gonna get the shaft when he put the post on here. But again no offense against KROC for the shaft. And i have nothing against gay people. I just happen to prefer girls.  Smile

Deltaflyertoo,

I happen to live in Vancouver and can't help ya out, but I wanted to wish ya luck!

I understand completely where you are coming from with your request. When I met my partner three and a half years ago, little did I know that he was one of the biggest civil aviation buffs that I would ever meet. I thought I was bad, but this guy sits around looking up aircraft reg numbers on the internet with the same intensity that I reserve for an all night after hours party.

Some people look a little askance when I mention my passion for civil aviation, so it's pretty cool to have someone who agrees that Saturday would be the perfect day to pack a picnic lunch and go sit by the runway at YVR for part of the day.

C'mon guys....this person is only trying to get together with other people who share his interests and aren't offended by his lifestyle.

On that note, any left-handed, completely broke female undertakers out there who enjoy shaving cats and cooking while jumping on a trampoline out there? Oh yah...and you have to like aviation too!
