Fabulous Friday: All the gays in the villiage


Today is a special Fabulous Friday. Why? Well, ma’am, I’m glad you asked. Today’s FF is brought to you by the the most fabulous group of all — the gay men and women of the world. Those wonderfully loving, accepting, and (most of all) FABULOUS people of which I do believe, in some sense of the Kevin Baconized world we live in, I am connected to most of them.

Somehow.

Before I dive into the meat of the how and the why and the who of today’s Fabulous Friday, I must introduce you to my little friend Daffyd. Daffyd, you see, thinks he’s the only gay in the villiage. Poor, dear Daffyd — so disillusioned. For we all know that each home houses at least one closet and in each one of those closets hides possibly one skeleton. That skeleton … is fabulous.

Seriously though — I am proud to be connected to quite a lot of gay men and women. From relatives, to¬†acquaintances, to dearest friends; my life has been made ever more joyous, rich, and warm thanks to my kings, queens, princes, and princesses.

Now I know there are those out there who can’t seem to wrap their minds around “gay”. For some strange reason they’ve been brainwashed to believe that Tab A should only go into Slot B and anything and everything else is simply not acceptable. We also all know that having a discussion with those same people about the issue is like discussing Quantum String Theory with Paris Hilton. It just isn’t going to work.

But why? Why is there such ignorance, hatred, and homophobia? Let me ask you something … what would the world be like without gay men and women? Go on, give it some thought. I can imagine it would be bereft of fabulousness.

  • No show tunes.
  • No Liza Minelli.
  • No Glee.
  • No drag queens.
  • No six pack abs.

Okay, okay … enough with the snark. Really, what would it be like:

  • Fewer hugs.
  • Less charm.
  • Less love.
  • Far less color and beauty.
  • Less warmth.
  • Less music and dance.
  • Less celebration and hope.
  • No Shero!
It’s been a long time coming that gay men and women get their dues. I say we create a nationally recognized holiday to celebrate our love, respect, and friendship for the gay community. They make the world a far more fabulous place and without their special brand of joy this planet would seem far less inhabitable. Besides, without them we wouldn’t have:
  • Jodie Foster
  • Portia De Rossi
  • Ellen Degeneres
  • Ian McKellen
  • Elton John
  • Neil Patrick Harris

Okay, we have to hold on a minute. Everyone that knows me knows I have a serious man-crush on Neil Patrick Harris. So listen, if any of you have some secret master plan to rid the world of gays, you better think twice or I will let loose upon the planet my master plan to release the undead horde and I will make sure to put the scent of YOUR brain in their collective nose. Because a world without Neil, is a world without Jack.

Okay, I’m done. I’ve extolled the value and virtue of Fabulous Friday in it’s most basic, pure form. The gay community is one that should be celebrated. So, to all my lovely gay friends, fans, and readers — this Fabulous Friday is all yours. But, truth be told, every Fabulous Friday is yours. Bless you, thank you, love you.
