Two of the most drool-worthy (or at least worthy of my drool) men publicly came out in the last year. Ok, October was more than a year ago, but I still think of years in terms of school.
It might be a little weird, but I found these two infinitely more attractive (if that was even possible) when they opened up about their sexuality. It’s a decision that a lot of people have a hard time making, but it’s an extremely important one. Why is it important? Well it’s important to be honest about who you are and tell the world that sexuality is not something to be ashamed of. By coming out, they empowered so many others to have the courage to be true to themselves in the face of adversity, and although it’s still ugly out there in some places, I do believe it’s getting better. My greatest hope is that some day the world will be a safe place for everyone to be open about who they love, but for now I will celebrate the small victories, because they are much greater than we could possibly understand.
And just look at these two. Regardless of your gender or sexuality, you cannot deny that they are absolutely beautiful people.
