Which Celebrity Caused Your 'Gay Awakening?'

 After a day like today - particularly with the impeachment hearing and the GOP fakery that came with it - I'm exhausted. So forgive this happy LGBTQ warrior and proud member of the Rainbow Mafia (it's a religious right slur, but damn it's still cool) for presenting something frivolous right now. I invite you all to tell me who was your first LGBTQ crush, i.e. the celebrity who awakened the gay in you.

To answer your question - I didn't come to grips with being gay until in college. Still, I had a childhood fascination (which turned out to be unofficial crushes) on the following:

 Jackie Earle Haley, Stephen Geoffreys, Lance Kerwin, Ike Eisenmann, River Phoenix (I had it for him REAL BAD), Meeno Pelucee (woof! woof!), Matthew Laborteaux, Billy Jacoby, and Chris Makepeace.

And those are the ones I can think of for now.

Christian higher ed can't win the LGBTQ debate unless it transforms - Truer words were never spoken. 

Free PrEP program unveiled under Trump’s HIV initiative - Knowing Trump's affinity with the anti-LGBTQ industry, count the days before this is rescinded. 

Rep. Pramila Jayapal wants transgender people in Congress - I would love to see that, too.
