They then lost touch until three months ago, when Mateen made contact again, mentioned that he would be in Orlando soon and suggested meeting for a drink.
Notice how many gays, lady boys, toms, lesbians there are in Thailand?
Have you also noticed how many straight heterosexual guys there are that come to Thailand and end up sleeping with men?
Thailand isn't the only country like this either amazingly China has the same culture of Gay and lesbians as Thailand does in fact it's probably even more open then it is here.
In China there's so many single dudes being gay may be the only option and since there's so many single girls in Thailand stands to reason why there is so many lesbians as well. I honestly beleieve that a lot of dudes come to Thailand have never even thought about being gay then arrive in Thailand and somehow change their sexuality.
Now when I was young I was pretty prejudice, if we thought some kid at our school was gay or anyone gay for that matter we'd kick the shit out of them make their life miserable to the point they'd have no friends basically a living hell.
So in the west we'll have this saying in the closet and out of the closet yet in Thailand they don't have a closet you can basically be whoever you want without ridicule and without a bunch of homophobes beeting you up.
And hey, if it’s a complete and total failure you’ll at least come away with some horror stories to tell your friends!
Hang out with gay singles long enough and you’ll definitely hear them complain about the size of their local dating pool.
Mateen’s apparent presence on gay dating apps and his previous visits to Pulse, according to West and another witness, added another dimension to the portrait emerging Monday of the man behind the violent rampage.
Cord Cedeno said he had also seen Mateen inside Pulse before, standing at the bar with a drink.
