I took up the task of being a BW Moderator with a very poetic desire to provide help and safe space for the rising population of younger (and highly possibly confused and worried) gay/bi guys coming to Blowing Wind to explore and find themselves and try to navigate life as men who have sex with men. (And of course I would be happy to offer advice to anyone of any ages, provided you want to receive it)
After careful consideration, I have decided to run a small Confessions/HTHT/Help Corner programme/initiative.
A safe space for you to ask your questions, share your worries and seek advice to overcome the tough yet rewarding journey of exploring yourself, your sexuality and relationships with surrounding people as men who have sex with men (a.k.a. gay, bi men)
1) You can send confessions totally anonymously. Your confessions will be checked every Friday.
2) I will post them on Blowing Wind Member's Lounge so only members can give their own advice and points of view (and you still can read their replies anonymously). I will exercise censorship on troll and judgmental replies as I deem fit, to prevent hurting the "confessants".
3) I'm currently working on a tracking mechanism so confessants can keep track and read new replies easily. Will update once I figure it out.
4) Click HERE to confess/ask question/share your worries.

I feel despondent as I take heavy steps towards the company line. Having just finished my POP a couple of days ago, it feels surreal to be back here. I see a few other guys who have already arrived. I quicken my pace and join them. I see Sgt. Lee, one of the specialists in-charge of Platoon 4, exit the company office. He adjusts his Duty Sergeant arm band as he walks towards us.
"Okay, I know that you all don't want to come back here, especially after your POP. Unfortunately, all of you screw up somewhere during your BMT and got caught by your Sgt. and now must serve this confinement. But at least just one night. So just suck it up, don't give me any trouble and you can go home happily tomorrow and enjoy the remainder of your weekend. Can?"
We reply with a resounding "Yes, Sgt!" He ticks off our names. Besides myself from Platoon 2, there are a couple of guys from Platoon 1 and another one from Platoon 4. Sgt. Lee looks up and looks a little confused.
"Eh, how come there's one guy missing."
Just then, we see a guy running towards us.
"Sorry, Sgt. I got delayed at the gantry. Not my fault."
Sgt. Lee isn't impressed with his answer.
"You forever with your excuses, Kelvin. Go join the rest."
Kelvin is from Platoon 3 and is known to be quite notorious. A bit of a troublesome character, there isn't really anyone who didn't know him in the company. He had been yelled at several times by Seargents and Officers alike. He must also be the one who must have gotten punished the most during our BMT. He cuts quite an intimidating presence especially with his muscular built and...
Was with a few old friends and was chatting about places we've been and missed. A few names which pops up and some at the tip of my tongue but failed to recall.
Pebble Bar at former Forum. very rowdy crowds. not much impression.
Inner Circle at Tg Pagar. A place where I ventured alone and later found that it was a place I belong. Had many great and happy times. Always remember the New Year Eve celebrations. Lots of fond memories and met many friends there.
Vincent's Lounge, Far East Plaza. Hardy been there but it's a place where the Ang Mo and the MB hangs out.
Xpose - South Bridge Road - Remembered that there were many singing competitions held there and the owner Alan.
MOX bar - Tg Pagar Rd - remembered this place as it's mostly white. don't hang out there much.
DYMK - Neil Road, been there a few times for gathering or someone's birthday
Locker Room - Neil Road. been there only a few times
Disco / Clubs
The Hangar - Opposite Bayshore park but the colonial building demolished to make way for condos. Remember it as a a building up a slope. Sunday is where there will be drag queen shows. Rather happening but due to the location. don't go there much.
Marmota / Shadows. Kallang Leisure Mall. Disco dancing only on Sunday
Niche. Far East Plaza level 5. First official gay disco club in Sg. Owner Bernard who later close Niche and open Inner Circle Karaoke. was one of the most happening gay disco bar of it's time.
Rascal - Disco at (can't remember the hotel). Only on Sunday
Studebaker / Venom at Orchard Pacific Plaza (building next to Holiday Inn)
Why Not? Tras Street The famous twins who owns the dance club and the Babylon KTV
Taboo at Neil Road which recently closed.
...and the rest and in between all forgotten.
What are the bars and the discos that you remember and the memories you had?
Hi just wanna rant.
So i like my best straight friend. He knows it too and despite of that, we are still friends. I got a boyfriend now, who is really great, and he got a girlfriend too. But at times, i still fraternize about him and we still talked and...
