It's Wednesday, otherwise known as 'Hump Day!" What better way to celebrate a very special Gay Tuesday Wednesday than making it an official Gay Hump Day?
Today, we'll make a return to innocence. Remember your days of youth and the very first time you saw Boy George on MTV singing in full makeup and plucked eyebrows alongside some very pretty young men? I do. I knew something felt a little off, but I just couldn't put my finger on it. Nor, would I actually, you know, want to put my finger on it. Ahhhh, yes, this all transpired way before the word 'GAY' ingratiated itself so firmly into our culture(or culture club!) and became a common word to denote an entire group of people. During those times I would gleefully sing the Flinstones theme song with nary a thought to the ramifications of words with double meaning. "We'll have a GAY old tiiiiiiimmmmeee."
I can still vividly recall sitting down with mummy for our afternoon tradition of enjoying a spot of tea with crumpets when I looked over my monocle at the telly showing Boy George writhing around lasciviously on stage while donning his gay apparel. I turned to mummy and declared, "By jove, mummy, that ole chap seems rather queer, doesn't he?" Yes, queer indeed. What an apt all-encompassing descriptive word that is.
Happy Gay Hump Day Everybody!
