Dear Gay Community: Please Get Some New Spokesmodels
Has it really come down to this? Clay Aiken appearing last Sunday on Face the Nation as a real life gay man (not the Will & Grace fake gay man who fake did so much to advance fake gay rights) in support of gay marriage.
Isn’t that the same Clay Aiken who vehemently denied for years that he was, in fact, gay? Who only came out after his career was in the crapper and he was caught showing off his American Idol on the internet?
Then Monday, Ricky Martin hosts a big NYC gay organization’s fundraiser for President Obama. The same Ricky Martin who, at the height of his career, vehemently denied his homosexuality and actually paraded his “girlfriend” around to all his big events?
I won’t even mention Anderson Cooper.
These are not your role models. These are opportunist famewhores who will exploit anything for more camera time. Don’t believe me? Clay Aiken is a finalist on next week’s finale of Celebrity Apprentice and Ricky Martin is appearing in Evita on Broadway.
