Jentasmic: Glitter and Be Gay!

6 Jun

I do so wish I could be at Walt Disney World this weekend! Not only is it the kickoff of Star Wars Weekends, but it’s also the annual Gay Days celebration. The best I can do is to be there in spirit! So, today’s Jentasmic! column at Studios Central gives you a little glimpse into what it’s like to live in my queer little world, and to watch the occasional flame war that erupts over Gay Days in our little Disney fan community.

    I was pretty upset over the first Gay Days flamewar I encountered, which was a lot less diplomatic than what you described. Being at Gay Days itself is pretty odd – not without its fun, but it creates social pressures you don’t ordinarily encounter. Yes, there’s fun and free spirits, but yes, there are people in C.S.A. t-shirts in City Hall shouting that “these people” shouldn’t be let into the park. The people walking around eyeballing “the enemy” are pretty few and far between, but it does turn the whole thing into a mix of fun sights and depressing ones.

    The image of you causing awkwardness at the PTA is currently a cherished one. Thank you. ^^

    Thanks for that, Foxx! I’m glad you enjoyed the PTA story.
