Can someone please explain to me what's cute about this? Now, before you stone me with accusations of not being open minded, let me remind you that I've been a card-carrying member of the "gay community" since coming out to my mother (who is also same-sex oriented) at the age of sixteen. So really, seriously...why do some people feel the need to dress like a snowy white, Cher-worshipping version of a member from The Village People? Or attend dance parties with one-color theme titles? Recently, I dodged a big event here in New York called The Black Party. I suppose you go and wear black or leather (surprise!), do incredible amounts of drugs, and sleep with as many random people as possible (I'm guessing). Sound like fun? Good times? Nah...not for me. I'd rather meet a nice boyfriend to eventually take home to Mom and her girlfriend. Hopefully, in the future, there will be a day when the gay community looks back on these "ultra-event parties", and realizes how tacky some of these events really are. Give me a funny, ironic, witty, and self-aware drag queen performing at a local dive bar any day...over these stereotypical drones.
I'd love to hear outside opinions on this topic...
