We know when you ask, “what’s so gay about Glee?” the obvious answer is, “everything.” But we’re here to break down the queerest bits of Glee into bit-sized morsels for your enjoyment. Think of us as your gay cheat sheet to Glee fandom.
1. Cassandra July Teaches Dance Class in a Bustier. More power to the new Cassandra July, Rachel Berry’s NYADA teacher, for her fashion choices. It’s not really appropriate dance instructor wear, but we’re also not complaining about seeing Kate Hudson scantly clad…
2. Brody’s Self-Identifying. Within minutes of meeting Brody Weston, Rachel’s NYADA classmate, he tells us in no uncertain terms he’s straight. Whatever you say, Brody, but we’re gotta note that it’s pretty gay to be so quick to throw on some labels. You’ve still got two years of musical theater college left, plenty of time to experiment.
3. The Return of Wade “Unique” Adams. We were pretty sure based on glaring hints dropped in last year’s season finale that Unique would be making the transfer to McKinley and we were right! And within a day Wade is in full Unique garb at school, even when her club-mates are less than supportive. You go girl!
4. Recurring Scissoring Joke. We’re still floored every time Ryan Murphy and co get away with a scissoring joke on Fox prime time. In one of the best lines of the night, Brittney reveals that her time with Santana has been lackluster of late because of the distance and “you can’t scissor over web cam.” We’ll just leave you with those (extremely gay) mental images.
5. Kurt and Blaine. We just have to give them their own bullet as a couple because —we missed our boys! Summer was too long and now that they’re about to be officially apart with Kurt in NYC and Blaine in Lima. From Blaine’s sass to Kurt accessorizing the hell out of that Lima Bean uniform, we’re just so happy to have our favorite queer TV teens back in action. Now let’s all get the tissues ready for the inevitable bumps along the road to marriage by 21 (according to Ryan Murphy’s tweets, at least.)
