Real-Life Tormented Gay Kid Is Vindicated In Glee: The 3D Concert Movie

The after-effects of public humiliation don’t usually wind their way through time and find new life as big screen last-laugh featuring a Gwyneth Paltrow cameo, but they will for a gay teenager named Trenton.

He’s one of three real-life Glee fans profiled during interstitial moments in Glee: The 3D Concert Movie, opening tomorrow. On stage, the cast is in character, but the compelling non-fiction narratives that bracket the singing involve a popular cheerleader who happens to be a little person; a teenage girl with Asperger’s Syndrome; and Trenton, a boy who was cruelly outed in the 8th grade when his journal got into the hands of his secret crush.

Trenton’s segments follow him through his ordeal as he changes schools, finds one with a welcoming theater department and eventually delivers a Kurt gave me strength” testimonial. Yeah, not typical of most bullied kids’ experience, but how’s that for sweet 3D vindication?

Hope all the kids who tormented Trenton go see this movie and feel like the jerks they are.

      Maybe it was just me but I saw nothing in the video that referenced anything about a kid named Trenton. Nada, nothing.

      This show’s a breeding ground for sloppy party bottoms.

      I’ve seen the movie and its an orgy for Gleeks. Trenton’s story is quite moving. The film is divided between concert sequences and mini-documentaries abotu partcular fans and the way they identify with characters on the show.

      IOW, Ryan Murphy’s not going to stop until “Don’t Stop Believing” replaces the National Anthem.
