Like a purple club or purple spade pin.

Just a rando thought.
Well, there are six colors in the rainbow flag, so how about each of the four suits in one of those colors plus a chip on each side for the other two? That might make a nice pin or button. My photoshop skills are poor, but maybe I'll play with that.

Re: **Rainbow Flops: The GLBTQ Discussion Thread**

This may have been mentioned in the previous 50 pages, but what are the best Gay clubs/bars in Las Vegas? I have checked yelp and received positive reviews from the Garage and Phoenix. I wanted some other reviews from you guys.

Phoenix = best bar.

Pirahna = best club.

Re: **Rainbow Flops: The GLBTQ Discussion Thread**

I may have posted something similar in here before but honestly can't remember, I think it was about a different guy though. I know this thread is almost never used but I'm guessing some/most of you have experienced similar things in the past and may have some advice for me.

I have a friend that's ~4-5 years younger than that I met through my sister/a younger cousin. I met him about 8 years ago now when he was 13 (I was 17 or 18). We got aloong and everything but weren't around each other much until he was maybe 17 and started hanging out around my sister more (him and her were strictly platonic). Him and I ended up starting to hang out a bit, and probably within 2 months of him becoming legal had hooked up for the 1st time. We ended up in bed together most times I'd come to town (I live ~2 hours away currently) for the last 2-3 years, which was about once or twice a month. A handful of times he'd say that was the last time, and almost every time he'd make sure to tell me "he wasn't gay". I'd always make sure he knew that if it came down to a point where we had to stop having sex to continue being friends, I was 100% fine with that. I had quickly grown to care way too much for him to let sex halt our friendship, but he seemed to still be ok with it so we kept going.

Probably about a year ago, he was in need of a job and I told him I could get him one if he moved down with me. He seriously considered it and we figured out the logistics behind it, but he wanted a week to think about it. I went home...and I never heard back from him, and he stopped replying to my texts. He stopped making eye contact and just generally making things awkward enough when we're with mutual friends where they ask me wtf is going on, because it's so out of character for him. He apparently made a comment recently to one of our friends that I need to realize he's grown up and not into the same things he used to-which at the end of the day isn't really an issue at all, and could be solved in about 3 minutes if he had just said that to me. Of our group of friends, none of them know that we've been together, but 1 or 2 of them are starting to pick up on it and he's basically "outing" himself by being so awkward.

I've mostly left him alone the last 6 months and let him do what he needs to do to figure **** out, but I'm a) getting sick of the awkwardness he creates every time I see him and generally getting ignored, and b) would much rather go back to us being friends, even if there's 0 sex, which was apparently his end goal anyways.

There's really not a chance of me not seeing him or avoiding him so that's not an option (ffs, he's in my family's fantasy football league); and I'm trying to stay on this tight line of not upsetting him, because I realize that being with someone of the same sex makes life that much more difficult, especially for someone that identifies as straight-but I also don't want to ignore it to the point where we can never get back on track and capable of having a conversation. I saw him this weekend, and he even managed to say hello to me when it was just the 2 of us (progress!), but I know this is still a really thin line of giving space and pushing it a bit. This could have simply been him experimenting (about 50 times ha) or just getting off or him denying his feelings, I have 0 idea and it probably doesn't matter much until he figures it out. But I also am hoping some of you have advice/experience on this whole situation. sorry for all the rambling
