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.
This week Glee focused on the gayest topic of all: Broadway. It’s Rachel’s opening night in Funny Girl and everyone is back in town trying to get her out the door, on stage and through her curtain call. The night ends at a gay bar, so (SPOILER) it all goes well. It’s Glee—did you think it wouldn’t?
5. Warbler Blaine Returns! It’s only for a second during Rachel’s panic flashback, but we get to see Blaine back in his Warbler blues. We miss those dreamy boys.
4. “That Bi-Curious Minstrel Show Of Self-Congratulation.” That’s Sue’s opinion of the Tonys. And, okay, maybe it’s not too far off.
3. Tina Is Still Crushing On The Gays. Hurricane Tina arrives at the gang’s doorstep and immediately ruins Rachel’s day by talking about reviews. She’s also still only lusting after the gay dudes—even her first college boyfriend is queer, as everyone chimes in. By the episode’s end, she’s hitting on the gay DJ.
2. Sue Doesn’t Find Any Sex Toys On Kurt’s Bed. What a disappointment.
1. Glee Wants To Take You To A Gay Bar. To celebrate Rachel’s triumphant night, the gang trots over to some fantasy version of a gay bar that Blaine has heard about. Kurt grinds on Blaine’s lap, Rachel sings “Pumpin Blood” and the Gleeks stumble home at dawn.
A shining example of the fantasy and reality that is Glee.
