Councilman Comes Out, Declares Love For The Golden Girls, Of Course

by Rob Smith January 25, 2016


A man professing love for The Golden Girls is pretty much the same as coming out, but a New York City Councilman decided to do both with a single tweet.

New York City Council member James Vacca decided to come out on Friday, presumably during a Golden Girls marathon:

Blanche would be so proud.

60-year-old Bronx representative Vacca gave us a bit more in a statement he released to the media:

“At this point in my life I’ve decided to publicly come out as a gay man. Every person has their own journey and I am fortunate to be able to make the decision to come out on my own terms. My orientation is an innate part of who I am and I want my friends, family, colleagues, and constituents to share in this part of my life. I don’t want a spectacle or media event; instead I just want your respect as another human being.”

We get it, but you can’t come out and profess your love for The Golden Girls without expecting a tiny bit of media attention.

Vacca got nothing but love from the City Council’s LGBT Caucus as well as New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo, but it’s the exchange with another council member that really let us know where he stands when it comes to our favorite sassy septuagenarians:

We’re #teamsophia but we won’t hold it against you, Councilman Vacca. Welcome Out!

Racism Is A Major Problem In The Gay Community, And This Election Proves It

by Dan Tracer October 27, 2016

Racism is a problem in the gay community and you need look no further than the current presidential campaign, argues Gabe Gonzalez in a new video from Mic. “Nothing more clearly illustrates that racism is alive and well in the gay community than this election cycle,” Gonzalez says. “Don’t believe me? Ask the gays. For Trump.” [...]
