Chris Crocker at least has become hot (as long as he doesn't open his mouth).

Richard Simmons was never hot. And unlike Crocker, he does the gay equivalent of a minstrel act to amuse the heterosexuals.

It's not that there’s an insufficient number of gay men, it's that they're different. The point I'm trying to make is that this particular generation tied on a mask. There was a break in the culture. But additionally, the idea—and not just the idea, the actual life of homosexuals—changed immeasurably because of the acceptance of homosexuality. And that was because of AIDS. No one ever says that. Or how AIDS caused gay marriage. I mean, it would never have existed. You could pretend to your family that you were straight, but you couldn't pretend you weren't dying. And also, people became scared, not just of AIDS, which was a sufficient reason to be terrified, but also because—and this is the other thing no one ever says—the way that AIDS spread, by which I mean the rapidity, which was caused by a level of promiscuity that never existed before or since. And I really believe that people made these kinds of bargains with themselves. You know, I'm not saying I have this on the record but from what I could see from the people I know who survived that era, it was like, “don't kill me and I won't do this anymore.” Also, most straight people never thought about gay people before AIDS, which is why I could publish this stuff, go on a national television show and never be asked about it, in the way you are asking me about it. They would focus on other things. And after AIDS, I think that [homosexual] people were afraid of a kind of official response to AIDS, like they would be arrested, or put in jail, all these kind of things, which are not unlikely things, by the way, and so they made up a lie. "We're just like you. We are just like you, we're exactly like you." But of course, they were not exactly like straight people. They were nothing like straight people.

The straights will never regard Lohan as gay anyway, so no embarrassment there. Most embarrassing bi, maybe.

R29: I saw Mary Martin interview Richard Simmons on PBS in the early 1980s. It was embarassing because of his huge ego, not because of the qualities you mention. Simmons clearly knew who Martin was, but did not care.

Dan Savage

Brad Goreski

Andy Cohen

As hideous and desperate as Perez Hilton, Crocker, Simmons etc. are, at least they don't seem to have the humourless ego and dull self-absorption that the above three have. Savage is a racist, bi-phobic, self-promoting ass who thinks he has saved gay youth by making vanity videos about how aspirational his 'trendy' upper middle class lifestyle is while Brad and Andy are reality whores with delusions of class and 'refined masculinity'.

These types of toxic attention whores and self-professed 'experts' are the reasons why gay kids are killing themselves, not the cliche 'ugly' femmes like the queens in OP's poll.

The worst by far was a gay activist named Luke Sissyfag, best known for verbally assaulting President Clinton. He later did a 180° change and began speaking out against gays.

by Anonymousreply 4802/19/2013

I was friends with Luke during that time. He was way over-the-top in his attitudes towards (against) heterosexuality - and I am a queer socialist radical, and was then too. He was so far in one direction that it never really surprised me that he flipped so far the other way, let us say 170 degrees (as I believed he at least still called himself gay). It meant that his ethics weren't consistent. Born-agains of any stripe have very labile personalities and I don't trust any of them, particularly born-again Christians.

On the other hand, he got the message out there. Too bad he couldn't have stayed consistent.

A real hero for my money is Peter Tatchell. His politics have been consistent for many years.

by Anonymousreply 5202/19/2013

Sorry R45 but you have it backwards. If gay kids are killing them self its not from the likes of Dan Savage or Andy Cohen.

Those guys fit the mainstream mold of men that look straight but openly gay. Therefore, mainstream accepts that as tolerable.

It's the Richard Simmons, Parez Hilton, Bobby Trendy types that straight world has a hard time with.

The kids that show any of those traits in school are the ones that get constantly tormented, beaten up and harassed. Those are the ones most likely to kill them self.

It boils down to this: Straight guys dont want to be seen as weak.

Fem guys disturb their idea of what a man is, some to the point of anger, hate, and even wanting to take them out of the group.

I don't get the closet cases being listed. OP asked who we don't want representing us, which means openly gay people. Oprah Winfrey and the "pray the gay away" types don't claim to represent us since they don't even acknowledge that they are one of us.

R81 I know exactly what that's like. I never had a "fabulous" persona. I'm straight acting; not self-loathing, internalized homophobic, or ashamed to be gay in anyway. I just don't fit into bitchy cliques. People like us should have our own group-seriously. I'm considering posting my name, I've done it before and I not afraid.

Anyway, I think George Michael reflects upon us the worst. With his arrests soliciting sex in public restrooms he represents a distasteful, vile throwback to gay life pre-Stonewall. Actually post-Stonewall until about the 90's. He makes look like everything we worked so hard to overcome.

One hundred reasons to loathe this self-loathing thread.

by Anonymousreply 9902/21/2013

I have little respect for any gay or lesbian who does not 'come out', stand up and be counted. Many of those Hollywood buttlicks stay in the closet and use the excuse that coming out will hurt their career. Bullshit. Look at Neil Patrick Harris, Elton John, Ellen Degeneres, Zachary Quinto, Sir Ian McKellan, Rob Halford, George Michael, Cherry Jones, Alan Cumming (love that name), Cynthia Nixon, Wanda Sykes, Rachel Maddow, Simon Callow, Kirsten Vangsness, Melissa Etheridge, Lily Tomlin. Their careers have not suffered one bit after coming out (or at least hinting to the public about their sexuality). I have NO respect for John Travolta who, even after being outed countless times by those "in the know", still claims to be a heterosexual, pussy-hound, family man. Ridiculous. His coming out would not tarnish his career or name at all. That's my beef!

by Anonymousreply 10002/21/2013

What bothers me (and maybe I am just projecting here) is the display of unhappiness I see when closeted celebrities go off the rails and become Tom Cruise clone freaks with image control issues and those crazy eyes that scream: I'm happy in the closet and you better agree, or I am going to kill you!

It's like with fat people. Whenever I see an overweight person I see someone who has issues he or she tries to avoid by overeating. The same goes with closet cases who go out of their way by acting happy and content.

But this is more pity than embarrassment.
