BREAKING: ADAM LAMBERT TO JOIN THE VILLAGE PEOPLE.
Gotta say, that’s some seriously hot shit.
We’re just old enough to be a little freaked out by how much what used to pass for gay male subculture has passed into the mainstream, from drag to the gay leather scene. Sure, America got introduced to leatherboy getups when the Village People hit the big time, but most people remained oblivious at the time as to what those costumes represented for gay men. Adam’s out, proud, and sashaying that leather-clad ass for the world to see. It’s not a big deal, but there was a time not that long ago when something like this would have been considered a big deal – and time before that when the reference would have gone over most people’s heads.
