!! OMG, it’s a meme roundup: Gay Disappointment !!


This is a guest post written by @oheypete. Meme above is by @versfirst.

Hey guys! It’s @oheypete, digital content creator and curator. Wait — what does that mean…? Basically, it’s a more professional way of saying “I make gay memes on Instagram.” However, I’d like to think it’s “deeper” than that.

For me, the beauty of gay memes lies within the ability to explore intense topics and complex emotions that ordinarily may be too difficult or uncomfortable to talk about with friends IRL. It’s interesting how a simple 1:1 ratio square image can be SO provocative that it connects to LGBT people across cultures, all over the world.

OMG.BLOG asked me to curate a themed weekly entertainment feature — offering an exclusive first peak at the gritty, irreverent, alternative, dark, crass, off-the-wall gay humor that lurks on Instagram, hidden just a few taps beyond the pristine veneer of influencer illusion.

Having run a few popular niche gay meme pages for over two years, memers like myself have unique insight into and directly influence the trends of “mainstream” gay internet culture.

The underground gay meme pages of instagram are creative powerhouses — able to simplify & capture the essence of hyper-specific, salaciously shady, absolutely hilarious, eerily accurate moments in gay life that are often otherwise indescribable.

This week, we explore “Gay Disappointment” through memes. Which meme do you identify with the most? Check the rest out after the jump and comment below!

!! OMG, quote of the day: Taylor Swift says she spoke out about gay rights because of Todrick Hall !!

“Maybe a year or two ago, Todrick [Hall] and I are in the car, and he asked me, ‘What would you do if your son was gay?’ The fact that he had to ask me shocked me and made me realize that I had not made my position clear enough or loud enough. If my son was gay, he’d be gay. I don’t understand the question.”

Taylor Swift, on why she FINALLY said something to properly support her gay fanbase!

!! OMG, Andi Mack star Joshua Rush comes out as bisexual !!

Disney Star Joshua Rush tweeted:

“first to respond to this tweet is bi lol. first! i win! it’s me. i’m bi. And now that I’ve said that, I have a few things to rant about. There are more important things to talk about than me liking a whole bunch of genders, but I do want to share a few things with you guys. I saw so many of you watch Cyrus come out and said ‘Hey! I can be me!’ How ironic, isn’t it, that me, playing that character, never had mustered up that courage? Instead of feeling the courage to tell you today that I am an out and proud bisexual man because of the character I played for four years, I feel that courage thinking of all of you, who felt emboldened by Cyrus to come out.”

Rush added:

“I had a close friend of mine come out to me in fifth grade. FIFTH GRADE! That was well before I had any clue of my own identity and orientation. I suffered with some level of my own internalized homophobia even while playing the first openly gay character on Disney Channel. I stuffed the existential crisis of talking about my sexual orientation into a box in my mind for years. Today, I release it into the world. Being bi isn’t all of my identity, nor is it the most important part of my identity. Bi erasure and issues like it are important, but trans women of color still have a life expectancy of THIRTY FIVE YEARS and that is absolutely unacceptable.”

Rush then asked followers to donate to GLAAD and the Trevor Project and read GLAAD’s page on bisexuality. He ended by saying,

“Thank you to you for giving me the courage to know who I am and tell you this today. Happy 20biteen”

Congrats and welcome to living authentically, Josh, as well as encouraging many others to do the same!

!! OMG, is this a true, comprehensive dating connection list of LGBTQ+ women in Hollywood? !!

From ONTD user frejasface:

Alice from The L Word used to make a chart of all her lesbian friends’ love connections to show how incestuous the queer dating scene can be. So I made a new one before The L Word: Generation Q comes out.

Rumored relationships are in a dotted line.
I did not include celesbians who have not dated other famous people; for example, Jane Lynch, Margaret Cho, and Wanda Sykes.

All of these relationships are ~absolutely~ 100% true and factual. Don’t @ me.

Check out the full chart after the jump!

!! OMG, Happy Friday! Hosted by Rammstein showing their support for the LGBTQ !!

Equal rights for all #rammstein #lgbtqpoland

A post shared by Schneider (@christophschneider_official) on

German tanzmetal legends Rammstein flew the pride flag high during a recent concert in Poland which was the band’s response to recent events in Poland where attacks on the LGBTQ people by extremist far-right nationalists are on the rise.

On July 20 during the first ever Pride event in Biaĺystok, Poland, a group of extremists pelted the march goers with rocks, glass bottles and firecrackers. 25 people have been detained by police.

A few days prior to that event, a right-wing Polish news magazine announced plans to distribute “LGBT-free zone” stickers to readers, comparing gay people to Nazis as it vowed to fight against the “LGBT ideology.”

The ruling Law and Justice party is also dominated by anti-LGBT views, with party leader Jarosław Kaczyński declaring LGBT+ people a “threat” to the country and an “attack on the family and children.”

Good for the band for using their platform to spread love and acceptance to a fanbase that could very well include some fascist, nazi types given the band’s sound! They’re great people for a positive example!
