Kevin McHale, Clubbing in London

Posted on July 05, 2011

Dear under-25 hipsters,

J’ADORE it when you kids get adventurous or even silly with your clothes, but let’s make one thing perfectly clear.

Kevin McHale with his Glee mates at London nightspot Mahiki.

Floresheim by Duckie Brown Wingtip

Twenty years ago, anyone wearing this would have rightly been perceived as a young homosexual male out on the town.

The gays got there first. Never forget that, bitches. The gays ALWAYS get there first.

Fondle,

T Lo.

P.S.: LOVE your shoes!

      I have the biggest crush on him, this just adds to it.

        I first read that – He has the biggest crotch on him. . . probably because the first two things I noticed were his crotch and the metallic looking shoes.  *THEN the crocheted ladies sweater :o)

          Knitted. The Lady Sweater is definitely a knit.

      I like the shoes, they’re fun!

      Oh my, loving every bit of the overdone attitude. From the hair to the lace to the shoes and the bodyguard saying “huh?”. BTW Amber looks so cute here. Wish I had a pic of her.

      He’s so cute.  I thought you would scoff at the shoes and I’m glad you didn’t.  I think they’re great.  The bodyguard is pretty formidable.  OK, OK, I won’t lick him.

          Hmm, still a problem.  he should find another place to carry it.  It messes up the look. 

    • AMartel

      He looks unhappy and bored, and the heavy coppery shoes clearly are not alleviating the situation, and also they are ugly.

      I do love the sweater.  Dammit!

      Your comment reminds me of when Kurt told Sue,”Mercedes is black, I’m gay; WE MAKE CULTURE!”  TLo keeping it real!

      Comb your hair, Kevin… and least pretend you’re having fun!

      • MilaXX

        Comb it? That hair is carefully coiffed with just the right amount of product to make it stand up just so.

      Why no full photo of Amber Riley?  I’m sure she’s in.  Show us!

      In fact….if the Gays haven’t scoped it out first, it’s best to just leave it the hell alone for the time being.  Oh these kids…haha

      The body guard seems to be taking his job a little too seriously.

        From what I read on twitter the fans have been a bit aggressive & the tour sound pretty intense. read a few tweets from Amber saying they would come out and sign/meet fans at the end of the tour. I gather they haven’t done so in between because they are back to back shows.

      I think I had that sweater in 1994 or thereabouts.

    • Anonymous

      Actually, I read in a very old issue of Details Magazine (1996, I think) –  that had the following equation….and era-appropriate descriptions

      Straight fashion = Gay – three years  — think wife beaters, wallet chains etc.

      Gay fashion = Straight – twenty years — think leather wrist-cuffs like Warren Beatty in Shampoo.

      Prescient — n’est pas?

      “Tlo said: Never forget that, bitches. The gays ALWAYS get there first.”

      Yes, that’s true! But why do gay always get there firstt? Do they have some sort of canine ability to hear frequencies that mere mortals cannot? Or can they rearrange molecules, allowing for some sort of Star Trek-like transport? (I swear I saw Sigfried & Roy do that once). 

      And another thing, has anyone else noticed that we never had all these massive rainfalls and floods before that song ‘It’s Raining Men’ came out? It’s a good thing those anti-gay conservatives don’t believe in science, otherwise they’d be blaming global warming on the Gay Agenda.

      P.S.- BTW, I’ve always had a thing for wingtip shoes; does this mean I’m gay? My mom would LOVE it. She’s always encouraging me to be more trendy.

      • Anonymous

         No offense to lesbians – but I’d have to qualify that comment to be ” The gay MEN ALWAYS get there first.”  and then I can agree. 

        As a straight but not anti-gay, conservative… I can emphatically say that we “believe” in science  -when it there is SCIENTIFIC proof, not when it is based on Faith as much as any Religion is.     (I am having a little problem with the Pluto (a planet – not a planet), butter v margarine, eggs v no eggs, pro Anti-Statin v anti Anti-Statin, etc)

          For a second I thought that was “Pro-Stalin v Anti-Stalin”, and I was worried that Stalin had become a thing again. Also: Butter. Always go with butter.

        And it was the punks before that.  Put a couple of holes in the sweater, make the pants a scoch tighter, and picture Johnny Lydon in it.

      Class. Raise your hands if you remember this sweater from the International Male catalog. It was on the page before the caftan.

      • Anonymous

        (Hand up)  Time for embarrassing confession:  I ordered the shiny, double breasted gray suit I wore to my wedding rehearsal dinner in 1986 from International Male.  Worn with black tee shirt, gold hoop earring and eel skin loafers.  EEWWWWW…….  LOL!  And yet, my fiance still walked down the aisle thinking I was the man of her dreams.  My bad…..

        • Anonymous

          It’s manly yes, but I had one too. My sweater was  green and I owned it in when I was in high school, which was (and I say this though gritted teeth with a very tight smile) more than 20 years ago.However, I did not wear a modest wife beater under it. All I wore under it was a shiny green and I think I used metalic green eyeliner (yes and I still have the nerve to call Ke$ha tacky).

        Obviously, I had a girl version of this sweater as well, since I ‘liked’ everyone else’s comments. Don’t feel bad Sewing Siren, I was *well* out of high school.  I wore it over something that was neither quite a camisole nor a wife beater during the day. In the evening over a bandeau-style swimsuit top. Thank god there are no pictures.

      Ok, it’s a cute Metro/gay outfit suitable for clubbing, blah, blah, blah.  Send me the bodyguard, STAT!  I like a nice burly man ready to throw his body on top of me.  For my protection, of course!

      I have to ask: (I never know if my color perception issues are arising when grey or green are involved, or if it’s just my tragic tendency to go for matchy-matchy)  Does that grey really look good with the brown?
