I was a vocal and active proponent of full equality for and acceptance of all manner of sexuality and orientation, long before it was convenient to be so. I stood up for fellow high school classmates who were gay in deepest darkest Texas, during the height of the 80’s AIDS epidemic and panic.
At the same time, I must admit that I’ve always had an aversion to what I can only term as the stereotypical ‘gay aesthetic,’ whether it’s the clothes, the interior design or personal and vocal affectation.
This straight guy, while loving my brethren of any orientation, has no need for the so called ‘queer eye.’
And I’m pretty sure they’re okay with that 😉
