By the third day of my first Burning Man I was ready to call it quits. Little did I know, the party was in a cluster of queer camps just down the street from my home base. When I walked into the party, I was quickly struck by two things: how much better the house music was than any other camp I'd experienced, and how few queer-specific space I'd encountered in my explorations. Immediately, I felt the relief of finding something I hadn't even realized I was missing. In , the Burning Man organization made a queer sex-positive camp remove a sign depicting two men in a sexual act. This sparked the banding together of several queer camps into a group now known as the "gayborhood".

Once a week, Daily Intel takes a peek behind doors left slightly ajar. One of the things I love about Burning Man is you get to dress up however you want and wear all sorts of things that might not fly elsewhere. The idea of the Boy being with another woman is kind of sexy. But we have the room to ourselves, and sex and one last, warm shower is definitely on both of our minds. Your life, your soul, and all your relationships, platonic or romantic, are put under a magnifying glass with no white noise of life to soften the reveal. I wonder what this year is going to mean for me, and for us.

Straight people calling each other gay as an insult, she said, was indirectly perpetuating homophobia. The resulting debate lasted for weeks, hurt a lot of feelings, and in the end nobody had an answer.
