Hello Closet Busters. It’s time once again to stop your closet dwelling…to step out, step up and step in to living your truth. But what if that truth meant…lots and lots and lots of questions and people not really getting you. We’re not talking them not getting you because you’re gay, we’re talking people not getting you because you’re QUEER! But what the hell does that mean exactly?
It used to be a derogatory word thrown about for those of us who were fairies, dykes, light in the pants…you know FAGS. But suddenly it’s becoming cool to be QUEER. And as a queer man myself, I thought it would be appropriate to get a little help from one of my newest QUEER friends to sort out what it means to be QUEER in 2016 and BEYOND. Oh I love that, I just felt like Buzz Lightyear. Anyway to help us deconstruct the world of Queerdom is Vine superstar, LGBT advocate, MTV & Logo Red Carpet Correspondent, the one the only Jeffrey Marsh.
