I realized late last night that the lack of more gay marriage news has left a profound void in my life for all things homo. I’m fully aware that change does not come in a single instant; we build the better world we wish to live in through persistent work. Still, we can all agree that the past week has been, historically speaking, totally gay. And now we’re back to hum drum normality. As the newspapers sweep away the glitter of last week’s stories, I ponder: How does one fill the gay-shaped hole that sits in my soul?
With this, that’s how:
Have you ever seen Independence Day? This video is like that wall of fire when the aliens attack. Instead of killing you, though, these flames of faggotry make things gayer than a rainbow-colored clown car full of drag queens.
When even Lady Gaga will not do, it’s comforting to know that we can always rely on her Madgesty to gives us a shot of vitamin G (as in gay, le duh) to bring us back to our senses. This video in particular is like a perfect storm of homosexuality. Anything Madonna is inherently going to be like wearing a pink feather boa and a little body glitter on your cheeks the the Pride Parade, but the potent additions of a “Vogue”/”4 Minutes” mashup and a montage of classic Hollywood stars to visualize Madonna’s ode-to-the-diva interlude is proof positive that NOM is right: there is gathering, and it totally wants you to strike a pose!
Now that I feel properly reenergized, I think it’s time to go steal some rights. Look out, doctors in California and parents in Massachusetts! We will not be content until we’re having gay marriages right in your very home!
¡VIVA LA REVOLUCION!
