They picked 4 people who have achieved a lot, a feminine gay man, a gay man who looks like a butch lesbian, a butch lesbian and a trans woman who could pass.
All four are at ease with themselves and deserve recognition.
At least there aren't any gay baiting narcissist frauds like Jameela Jamil who claim queerness for the $$$.

R24 I'll give you Kenworthy as an Olympian (who has gotten PLENTY OF PRESS) but what the fuck has Underwood done? There are thousands of covers about white gays of various levels of fame. God fucking forbid they show a little diversity

Putting a Pose cast member on their cover was a natural with the show out now.
Speaking as a gay white man, I think we’ve gotten plenty of attention for our involvement with the movement.

It's almost as though ethnic & racial minorities are actually responsible for some of the best queer culture these last few years or something hmmmm 😲
It's true though. Black & POC are creating some of the best pop culture out there right now. Some of it's pretty gay too. I personally just think white gays are feeling pressed because NasX is riding highest with some good stuff. White gay culture is not very interesting 🤷♂️

The LGBT Community's greatest strength will always be its diversity. We come in all shapes and sizes and also in every skin color there is. This notion of a strict superior vs inferior, class or hierarchy system is so right wing conservative.

It’s seriously like the goal is to ugly yourself up. Is this the fashion for young people now? From Nas’s disgusting nails to the godawful clothes/color to Bowen Yang‘s weird pose, it feels like the aim was to make everything less attractive than it could be. I don’t get any of it.

Maybe so, R46, But this seems different and more specific. It’s not like grunge or heroin chic or street style, where you can still recognize the attractive human characteristics. It’s like purposely making choices that the vast majority of the public will consider objectively unattractive. Boner Shrinking, but make it fashion.

We all know why Yang was cast on SNL, not to mention why he’s on the cover. Had he been white he’d be doing Youtube videos nobody watches. None of the people have done anything impressive.

Lil Nas is sexy and he’s the only one who I would say actually broke through and did something worth mentioning. I’m just extremely cynical when I see Hollywood doing things like this. It’s so beyond contrived. And Bowen Yang should thank his lucky stars he got cast in anything. They’re scraping the barrel of the barrel with him. Yes, he’s gotten press recently, but don’t make me laugh by making him out to be some breakout star who’s done something amazing. Quite honestly, everyone is coming out as queer now so it’s not like they didn’t have more people to choose from. They’re trying to make money off of BLM, trans people, and Asians getting attacked. I’m not saying that black, Asian, or trans people shouldn’t be chosen, but when that’s all you choose it’s beyond obvious why. We’re living in a time where if any black actor doesn’t win every Oscar people have a meltdown.
