There have been a lot of hot new high-profile gay couples burning up the internet as of late, and most of them have been of the swirly variety that we’re (still) not so used to seeing represented in the LGBT community. In celebration of love that comes in all flavors and varieties, here are five interracial gay couples that definitely turn up the chocolate/vanilla/caramel-flavored heat.
Scott Blokker and Shaun T.
Fitness guru, Insanity creator and our own personal fitness spirit animal Shaun T. came out as gay and married a few years back when he introduced husband Scott Blokker to the world via a congratulatory retweet. At that point, the world had been quite well acquainted with Shaun T.’s insanely hot body, and the twosome decided to let everyone know that this particular six-pack comes with a matching set by releasing the photo above.
While we will continue to lament the fact that the guys with the best bodies hide them in those long board shorts, we will share this little gem from Shaun T’s instagram that shows you exactly what happens when he orders a swimsuit by mail that ends up being just a tad too small. Ordering a size smaller online? Yes, please.
Rubem Robierb and Sam Champion
The internet’s DILF-alert level went bright orange when photos of Sam Champion, former Good Morning America weatherman (and current co-anchor of America’s Morning Headquarters on The Weather Channel ) and husband Rubem Robierb frolicking on a Brazil beach in the skimpiest of swimwear hit the net.
And, seriously, who could blame anyone for finding this seasoned cafe con leche couple as blazing hot as the sun that’s giving them both a good toast in that photo? There is something that is always very sexy about a man of a certain age who manages to keep it together (honestly probably a lot better than some of us young bucks 20 years his junior), and Robierb is no slouch in that department as well.
Michael Sam and Vito Cammisano
Now we’re not one to make assumptions, but it would seem to us that future St. Louis Rams star Michael Sam has found a pretty good tight end in boyfriend Vito Cammisano. See what we did there? Yeah, we’re ashamed of ourselves too. Anyway, there’s something for everyone in this pairing, and we can’t help but to get more than a little turned on imagining these two in pretty much every position imaginable.
Yes, of course their tearful embrace and loving kisses after Sam was drafted were a wonderful and positive display of same-sex emotion and yadda yadda yadda, but this is about couples that get us hot and bothered, people. Besides, now that we know so much about Vito, we have an excuse for our thoughts to be…less than pure.
Nick Villa and Darren Young
Trailblazing superstar wrestler Darren Young is not only the first out wrestler in the WWE, but is definitely one of the most low-key coming out stories we’ve ever seen. After coming out to a TMZ cameraman at an airport baggage claim, he was promptly the subject of a People magazine spread featuring his Miami home with boyfriend of two years, Nick Villa.
We recently ran into them at the GLAAD Media Awards and we’ll just say that both seemed very much in love with Darren Young, but honestly we can’t blame either one. It is rare to find a high-profile gay couple in an interracial relationship that features two men of color, and is always interesting to see one with two people who are totally sexy in completely different ways. We’re guessing that Plantanos and Collard Greens are on the menu in this house, and it’s a recipe we’d definitely like to see more of.
Gerald McCullouch and Derrick Gordon
The world had just been introduced to UMass NCAA basketball player Derrick Gordon when he came out a few weeks prior, but he really secured his place in Gay Gossipland when he brought 47-year-old Bear City actor Gerald McCullouch as his date to the 2014 GLAAD Media Awards. We knew tongues would wag when these two made their red carpet debut as a couple, and in the weeks since our Facebook and Twitter feeds have been blowing up with commentary on the twosome.
No matter what you think of the age disparity, both men are very fine examples of their particular “types.” Gordon is tall, handsome, and super-ripped. As for McCullogh? Well, we’re pretty sure the next edition of the Gay Dictionary will have his photo right next to “Daddy,” which is coincidentally the name of his next flick.
