Darren Criss at the VMA’s. Soon it’ll all have to come off. Unless … Karofsky likes it that way?

And here are some … unflattering (but still adorable, so don’t kill me!) pics of the Teen Wolf guys. Dylan: TNG and Tyler look … ambushed.

And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay celebs who deserve more recognition. This week we give a ShoutOUT™ to … Leslie Jordan.

59-year-old Emmy winner Leslie has an enormous resume. Since the mid-80’s he’s appeared in one-shot roles in just about every TV show you can think of, and he had recurring roles in series you … may or may not remember (Reasonable Doubts, Top Of The Heap, Bodies Of Evidence, The People Next Door, Hearts Afire). But it was his performance as the faboo Brother Boy in 2000’s Sordid Lives that took his star to a new level.

We’re about to embark on what may be the most profound, essential, and in some ways … soul-scarring list we’ve ever done in Briefs. I give you … The 50 Greatest Kids Shows Of The 70’s and 80’s! Sit back and let the memories wash over you … the comforting yet oh-so terrifying memories.

At #25 is … Dungeons & Dragons

Airing for 27 episodes on CBS from September 17, 1983 – December 7, 1985, Dungeons & Dragons was the official TV version of the game, co-produced by Marvel. It loses major charisma points by not having a Cleric. Yes, that’s right … I was a Cleric.
