Appealing to Gay Audiences Is Great, Hollywood Reporter, but Can We Lay Off the Word “Stromo?”

[Thursday], on The Hollywood Reporter’s website, there’s an article with the charming headline, “Introducing the Stromo! Why Straight Male Stars are Going Gay(ish).” My feelings about this … conflicted, they are.

I completely agree with the author, Teresa Jusino, the label brings a demeaning connotation. It is about the brands and artists expanding their appeal, not lowering themselves to our level.

I think this is an exciting time, because like Jusino points out, this really helps to equalize the genders. Also, as a gay male, I get to be included even more into mainstream and isn’t that awesome?!
