Straight allies, what an awesome thing.
He’s a “fag hag”? Why bring “fags” into this? AJ should come right out and say that he’s a proud heterosexual dude who likes wearing women’s lingerie and heels. It’s called transvestism and most of the guys into this are strait. Say it loud, say it proud.
“Fag Hag” is an antiquated derogatory term, often meaning a “beard,” or a woman who walks with a gay man to help disguise his S.O. It is insulting to gays and women. Please eliminate it from your “gay glossary.”
Oh please….fag hag is a term of endearment. Just like many terms it is about context and here there is no malice.
Why..why..whyyyyy…can’t this man just live his truth without the bitching and moaning. Isn’t it a positive thing that he is secure within his sexuality enough to not be threatened by haggin around the gays? When will it ever be enough…lol
let us not forget the original Backstreet Boys, the back up band for NYC/UK punk scene star Wayne (who is now Jayne) County!
@mdw021: Yep. I’ve always thought the term has a harsh ring to it, but it’s who’s saying it and why. Just like there’s a big difference between the word “fag” when some asshole in a car is yelling it at you while you’re walking along, versus when your friends, gay or straight, are being silly and fun together. A.J. McLean is not the asshole in the car. (If he were trying to be, he’s going about it all wrong….!)
Awesome guy, A.J.
I’d like to think Nick Carter–the BB with the gay fan who has followed the tour and is crushing on him so big–is as at ease with LGBT as A.J. but I wonder after his alleged experience with sleazebag former manager Lou Pearlman. (Referencing a disturbing Vanity Fair magazine piece–”Mad About the Boys” Nov 2007–chronicling Pearlman’s financial chicanery and alleged (keep wanting to put quotation marks around that word) sexual harassment of his boy bands.
These guys have so much freakin’ money they don’t give a hooty-tooty flying fornication anymore. And I think he just does this to get attention and as an escape
Isn’t she a cutie. Back in my day we called this “genderfuck.”
@rickydee1955: @rickydee1955: you’ve got to be kidding. fag hag has been a term of endearment for quite sometime now. I guess whatever shade you found in the term was ripped from it a long time ago.
Somehow I always new the freaky one and most likely to be gay Backstreet Boy would be AJ. And I’m glad!! ;)
He has a crossdressing fetish.
what’s up with this note in the article – “It kind of is [amazing he's straight] – why amazing? Becuase Queerty believe that being gay is based on nuture not nature? c’mon!
Fag hag: it’s amazing what low self esteem gay men still have that they welcome being referred to by derogatory terms (not to mention the reductive term for women who are friends with them). This is why you continue to act out against yourselves.
What a brilliant story. This guy has my respect.
Derogatory words come from a bad heart. Making light out of dark things is a gift that isn’t easily acquired. There are other battles to fight, not something that comes from a person who is being positive.
