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.
It’s hard to be saucy about the queer moments on an episode titled “The Breakup” where two of our queer power couples are — if not donezo, at least very much in unstable and undetermined ground. We had a few gay giggles, but mostly just big messy tears. Oh Glee, when you break our heart you really break it, huh?
1. Facebook Hookups: Is it 2007? We’re a little sad Glee missed a grand opportunity to expose more of America to the wonders of Grindr, but we definitely gay gasped when Blaine started poking some random dude on Facebook for a hookup. Oh Blainers, our heart.
2. Santana’s Lesbian Detection Skills. Lesbians always carry around stacks of Virgina Wolf books. Seriously. Even if it means the end of lovely Brittana, we were happy to see Santana getting some lady attention. It’s a brave new queer world out there, Santana! Go forth!
3. Unique and the Angry Inch. At least, that’s what Unique petitions for as the school play. You. Go. Girl. If only. In the end, Grease wins out.
4. A Virgin Amaretto Sour. This is what Rachel orders at Callbacks, the piano bar where Blaine breaks out heart with his tearful acoustic cover of Teenage Dream. The idea of Rachel going to bars in New York and just ordering a few splashes of sour mix had us crying through the tears, for sure.
5. New York and Vogue Are Kurt’s Perfect Place. Even though it comes about in the midst of heartache, it made our hearts ache in a good way when Kurt is looking at his apology flowers from Blaine and his coworker just casually asks if “he’s cute.” No big deal. It gets better, Kurt Hummel. Even if it really really sucks right now for your heart.
