Prejudice in the Gay Community?

Often we have to deal with the ways that others define aspects of ourselves. For instance, I have a colleague who talks about his being bothered by the way that mainstream manhood has been defined by those men who act "tough" or use violence - that isn't him. The issue of "definition" can be exacerbated in groups of people who are marginalized, because the power of prejudice from the mainstream can be so pervasive. In the article below, in a similar way to my colleague's concern about the definition of manhood, what about those within a marginalized community who feel that their community's public "face" may not define them?
