Thank You, Out Celebs!
I've spent so much energy all these years railing at celebrities who cower in the closet that it's important I take a step back once in a while and throw some bouquets at the ones who actually opened the door and did us proud.
So thank you, out celebs!
Bless you, Neil Patrick Harris. You are a shining beacon, a total cutie, and the host of absolutely everything.
Kudos to you, Rosie O'Donnell, Ellen DeGeneres, and Portia de Rossi. You've make it great to be butch and/or butch-positive.
Cheers, Nathan Lane, clink clink Rupert and Sir Ian, God bless you Cherry Jones, and hats off to T.R. Knight and Cheyenne Jackson. You have all bestowed honor on our industry with your honesty and talent (which are not un-connected, by the way).
Everyone else--fuck off and get explosive diarrhea!
