Meet and Greet

    • Hello and welcome to the “Meet and Greet”. Tell us a little about yourself and why you decided to join the Rainbow Corps. I will start us off……

      Hi. I am SPC Voodoo (or you can call me Voodoo). I am 38 years old and live in the Jacksonville Florida area. I am gay and am for the most part “out of the closet” I say “for the most part” because unfortunately there is still 1 person in my life that doesn’t know (or at least acts like he doesn’t know) and that is my father. Long story short it’s a touchy subject because I am Hispanic and not only his 1st born but also his only son. I share that with you because in a way it leads to why I wanted to create and be a member or the Rainbow Corps. As a child growing up I was 1 of those people that felt alone and had no place where I could truly come out as gay. It was a big secret that I had to keep hidden in order to “survive”. That’s no way to have to live. Luckily as I got older my closest friends, my family (besides my Dad of course), and the gay community showed me that acceptance was out there. I could finally be Proud to be gay and not ashamed. When I joined the TSU I quickly found another place of acceptance. So it seemed only natural to create the Rainbow Corps. An LGBT group for gay Soldiers or even supporters of the gay community. A place for fun and friendship. A safe haven. A place of Pride.

       

    • Keep in mind that your introduction doesn’t have to be as long as mine was. I just figured it was a good ice breaker and a way for you to know me better. Just FYI- I love to chat. LOL

      Hello Rainbow Corps!

      I am SerenityRises, but people can call me Serenity (or by any of my aliases).  I am a 20 year old female from Maine.  I am pansexual and a great supporter of human rights which, obviously, includes the rights of the LGBT community.  I’m new to the Toy Soldiers and looking to be a very active member.  

      I’m looking forward to getting to know you!

      I am Sgt. Voltor, and I am a long-time Toy Soldier since 2009.  I also happen to be bisexual.  I am very glad the LGBT soldiers finally have a group of their own!laugh

    • Hi Y’all,

      I’m Nurse Cat. I’m 21 and from the San Francisco area of California. I am pansexual and happen to the daughter of a lesbian mom and step-daughter of her wife. So yeah. Lots of LGBT in my household.

      Participant

      Hey all, I am Constable Ad-Tavi on here, but my friends call me either Soren or Behr. I am a 37 year old genderqueer who resides out in the Cascadia city of Edmonds, which is nestled against the coast of the Salish Sea.

      I have been openly and actively out for over half of my life, having come out completely at age 18. Hell, I don’t even have a closet to go back into even if I wanted to, given I used dynamite to get out of it. LOL

      I joined Rainbow Corps because…well, having lived my life in a female body, but identifying as male, has made it hard for me to find a place where I fully fit and fully belong. I can’t even count the number of times I have been excluded from or escorted from places because I didn’t fit into the societally imposed boxes of “male” or “female”. So, I figured this was a place where I WOULD fit, and would not be excluded for being me. And also it is a place where I can share my interest with other like minded people.

      To everyone else who has posted here (or is hesitant to)….you are all awesome people, and welcome. Now have a rainbow cupcake and relax for a bit. cool

      Welcome Constable!  Good to have you aboard!spacecraft

    • Hi all

      My name is Doth’Rah but soome of you may know me as Mikey. I attended my first Pride event in London on Saturday and between that and the SCOTUS ruling on Friday, I finally feel confident enough to come out and say that I am bisexual! I also like to wear skirts/dresses from time to time.

      I’ve been denying it and hiding it for a long time. I came out to a group of friends a few years ago and while they weren’t negative about it (for the most part) they would ask a lot of invasive and inappropriate questions about my sex life, etc (something most of them had never been interested in previously) that I just wasn’t comfortable answering so I stopped telling people so that they wouldn’t ask those questions. I don’t want to do that any more and I figured here was as good a place as any to start

      I know those questions all too well.  I wish I could say it gets better, but it doesn’t.  My boyfriend also likes to wear skirts  and dresses, and I went to high school with a straight cross dresser, too.  So, yeah, kudos Doth’Rah.  Just be yourself, because it’s no fun to pretend to be someone else, unless it’s on a stage. mrgreen

    • I couldn’t have said it better than Sgt Voltor. You just have to be yourself, Doth’Rah. And also know that the Rainbow Corps is always here for you. And for all our other Brothers and Sisters out there. We are proud and we are many. I salute you all.

      ‘Lo all!  I’m Sinphonite, and have always been an LGBT ally, even if I didn’t always have a name for it.  I have quite a few friends and family who fall into one of the above categories, and hate how other people would view and/or treat them.  We’re all human, we all have our own preferences and natures, and no one set of them is “right” or superior.  It’d be like me telling people they are wrong for eating sweets because  like spicy food.

      Anyway, I’m specifically requesting permission to join!  I’m more than happy to help organize missions and invasions at Florida rallies and anywhere else we can make a showing.

    • Greetings Sinphonite. Great to have you here. Welcome to the Rainbow Corps. I will keep in touch.

      Welcome indeed!  I wonder why I didn’t see your post until now?  Turniping hamsters always messing around with the posts all the time…

      Well, hey there! Shiny new Toy Soldier here. The name’s Jasper, and I’m new to the entire movement, but so glad to see there’s a section for LGBT Toy Soldiers.

      I’m a transgender (FtM) man, meaning I was born in a female body but feel very strongly like I should have a male body, which I hope to soon transition into having. I’m unfortunately still closeted to my family for the most part, as my family is not the most accepting of my identity, but I’m completely out of the closet to friends, coworkers and those in my college program.

      I’m located in the Greater Toronto Area, in Ontario Canada, and while I’ve never attended an LGBT-related or Pride event, I am hoping for that to change soon.
