Is it me or is May 2012 turning out to be the gayest month in history?
Between John Travolta‘s troubles, the possible outings ofand Raven Symone, President Obama and VP Biden expressing their support for marriage equality, the death of a gay icon (rest always, Ms. Summer), the birth of a gay marriage via comics and becoming the first openly gay man to have a number one album on the Billboard 200 (this week with his second release “Trespassing” — which you ALL need to hear), it’s starting to feel like we’re getting gay pride month somewhat early.
Of course as a gay boy myself, I express no complaints, but it is a little crazy… and now, we get to add a little “Bang” for your buck.
Jim Parsons, who portrays the geeky, awkward and yet somewhat lovable Sheldon Cooper on CBS’ hit comedy, “The Big Bang Theory” (see what I did there) has admitted in a profile for the NY Times that he has not only come out of his “glass closet” (it’s been open knowledge for years), but has also been in a relationship with a man for the past 10 years.
Parsons, 39 (yes, that’s his real age) is currently preparing to star in a Broadway revival of the play “Harvey” while on hiatus from “Big Bang”; the series that has given him two Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television Series, Musical or Comedy.
Who runs the world? GAYS!
