Twinkmania: Chris Colfer Tops Out‘s List Of Top 10 Gay Bachelors

The readers over at Out have voted with their clicks (and dicks) in the magazine’s annual Top 100 gay bachelors contest. Below is your top 10—topped by barely post-pubescent Glee singer/actor Chris Colfer.

I know there’s an easy bottom joke to be made here about Chris… I won’t make it… Okay, I can’t help it. Congratulations, Chris, for finally topping something.

Other fellow list-makers include sexy alien ‘mobot Zachary Quinto, Broadway queen with the bulging biceps Nick Adams (below), and North Carolina’s king gayface Clay Aiken.

Anyways, sound off on which one(s) of these hotties you’d bone, and how. Don’t get too graphic, you crazy commenters, but we’d invite your speculation on whether you think these studs are tops, bottoms, or versies.

1. Chris Colfer

2. Zachary Quinto
3. Nick Adams
4. Christopher Rice
5. Clay Aiken
6. Joe Carozza
7. Jay Brannan
8. Randy Harrison
9. Luke Macfarlane
10. Tom Lenk

      Oh, ok.

      Colfer is cute…but how is he number 1 over all those other guys including MacFarlane and Quinto? Gleeks are nuts.

      Maybe I’m just biased since I have a preference for fleshed out hairy men and not innocent looking boys.

      Chris Colfer may “top” that list, but he is ONE HUNDRED PERCENT bottom. And not masculine bottom. Total legs-up-in-the-air, stick-that-2-liter-bottle-in-me bottom.

      Wow, there are some pretty abusive comments here about Chris Colfer, including in the article itself. I’m female, but still LGBT, and I have to say that for members of people group that has regularly faced ostracism and bullying, some of you sure do know how to dish out your fair share of it yourselves – and to one of us, no less! (And by the way… you may want to take a closer look at him. He doesn’t flaunt it, but he’s actually pretty buff!)

Plus, any hurtful comments that were directed towards you when you were growing up were likely excused the same way. Further, Glee is fiction. You’re confusing Kurt with Chris. They are two very different people.

      If there was an out, black pop star/actor whatever that was hot he would of easily topped the list. It comes down to the fanbase.

      Again, a few week ago, the list was very different.

      There were A-LOT of gay black men in the top 20.

      The fact is once people started tweeting about this list fanbases ran out to support their own.

      You can tell by the list it is categorized by the size of their fanbase. I can tell you all right now Chris got the most votes from females. I feel like I just said the word fanbase 20 times…. Fanbase….

      Zachary Quinto <3 Can't stay away from a man with a great beard.

      But Randy Harrison has to be the best of all the guys listed, and I'm shocked he's single. I remember watching QAF when I was a little kid; watching it with the volume on low so I wouldn't get caught lol…We all know what he's got and it's called a great a$$ :)

      I think whats missing from so many comments here is a spirit of camaraderie. “Bitchiness” and snark are both big parts of gay culture for sure, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. But for me its not about saying something nasty or making another person look bad. The best bitchy comments are Smart, Sharp, and Funny. Something that makes the person laugh at them self and admire your cleverness. A lot of this is just tearing someone down. I’m not sure what some of y’all get out of it…

      WOAH!!!!! I thought we didnt out people…wasnt that a lesson we all learned from Perez Hilton that outing people isnt cool. I seem to recollect Chris Colfer saying he was straight and I have never heard news otherwise ( and i follow everything about him). If you are talking about his character on Glee Kurt Hummel then yes he is in fact gay. I am a straight female and am a huge supporter of the LGBT community and I dont think it is fair for the people of the gay community to out someone.

      What I notice about Colfer and Adam Lambert is that women (both straight and lesbian) find them more appealing than actual gay men do. I remember AfterElton did a similar poll to this and Chris and Adam were both in the top 3 last year, and all the people who came out and said they voted were either straight girls who love Glee or lesbians who think Chris and Adam are “cute little gay boys”. Trust us, those who actually have dicks and like other people with them do not prefer them to actual “hunk” type of guys. Kurt is the most offensive character on television, a character that they have made “one of the girls” and find every potential gay stereotype and of course apply it to him. Kurt is the very reason we need characters like Max on Happy Endings to show straight America we all aren’t cartoon characters.

      @Ty: People aren’t voting for Kurt as the eligible bachelor. They’re voting for Chris, who is very different from his character. Maybe what you’re saying would have been true in 2009, when Chris Colfer looked like a little kid, but now that he’s older, he looks pretty dang good and has a lot going on for himself. A hunk may be nice to look at, but that’s about it.

      This list is ridiculous. I don’t know any gay guy that likes Kurt or Colfer. This list was clearly voted by teenage girls.

      Kurt is the most offensive character on tv, the way Colfer plays Kurt is offensive. And frankly, Colfer has been getting more and more feminine. I don’t see him as male any more.

      I agree, I believe women shouldn’t be allowed to vote in a gay male poll. I know gay men who find Rachael Maddow and k.d. lang to be sexy, because after all, they are fairly masculine women (much like lesbians love Lambert and Colfer for their femininity) but yet most lesbians I know would never put those two above someone like Jessica Alba or Angelina Jolie on the lust-o-meter. Same goes with gay men. I don’t know one gay man who would choose Chris Colfer over say, Chris Evans.

      Jay Brannan, Luke MacFarlane, Zachary Quinto and Christopher Rice are all hot. The other guys not so much.

      Personally I am sick of the whole obsession over race. I know white guys who exclusively date black and Hispanic men. We have the Kardashian sisters who are famous for dating black guys, etc.. People should be able to date who they find more attractive. While there are black, Hispanic and Asian men out there I find attractive, I still usually find white guys to be the ones I like the most. People should be allowed to be attracted to who they wish. Chris Colfer and Clay Aiken being so high should be a shock not because they’re white, but because I have never seen another gay man of any race lust over them.

      Come on guys. It’s a poll. It’s done and over with. Fighting over the results won’t change the fact who made it in the top 10. I think all of them are attractive. And all of this hate for who got 1st place seriously? I know we are all entitled to our own opinions, but that doesn’t mean we have to be rude towards one another or the people on the list.

      Chris is attractive, and I know some of you have said that Chris isn’t attractive or too feminine it’s just the way he looks. It’s not as if he’s overly feminine anyway. He’s surprisingly masculine in some aspects.

      The poll result is what it is. It’s just someone’s opinion. Who cares if it’s gay guys opinion, or lesbians, or heterosexual girls? The point is, the majority chose Chris because they like him. It’s someone else’s opinion. They’re not forcing theirs onto yours. Chris even states,

      “@outmagazine I’d like to thank my fans for stuffing the ballot boxes & the non-fans for their descriptive character-building disagreements”

      He accepts people voted for him, and wanted him to win and doesn’t even fully believe he truly won it. But in the end, it’s all someone else’s opinion. And when does that ever matter to ourselves? It’s just another stupid poll that doesn’t really count for anything.

      I think the argument is that this list revolving the openly gay guys that men most lust after loses validity when little girls who watch Glee, and lesbians who gravitate to the likes of Colfer and Lambert because they aren’t overtly masculine (you’re lesbians, you’re into into men… those into men see Colfer and Lambert as two estrogen shots away from being transgendered) more than they do guys that the average gay man finds sexy. Imagine if this poll was for lesbians and gay men hijacked the poll and rigged in favor of Rachel Maddow (and I know gay men who actually have a straight crush on her) instead of the Victoria Secret models most lesbians I know *really* like?

      The disgusting comments make me ashamed to be a minority. We can be even more intolerant and offensive than the majority. Chris is gorgeous, talented and classy. We all know you are just jealous because none of you will ever lay your ugly paws on him or anyone his caliber. Keep imagining how he likes it, because top, bottom or versies; he sure tops all of you, why? Because Chris Colfer can have anyone he wants, when he wants and the way he wants. Well at least guys who are educated and secure enough to not ditch one of their own because he supposedly doesn’t correspond whatever image homophobic heterosexuals incrusted in their tiny brain through insults and mockery. At only 21 years old, Chris is ten times the man you will ever be, not because he writes, acts, sings and do a lot for the gay community by just breathing, but because he doesn’t need to put anybody down to prove he is a real man.

No, it’s Kurt that sends homophobic waves because people will use his character as “proof” that there’s no way gays can be real men when they adhere to every imaginable stereotype and are ‘one of the girls’ instead of the guys. It reminds me years ago when people would use things they saw on Queer As Folk as “proof” that all gays must adhere to this certain lifestyle. It is hard to talk about progress when they have gone time and again to make Kurt so offensively stereotypical while making the “straight acting gay” on there a self-hating homophobe who attempts suicide. Somehow they send the signal that out and proud queens have more self-esteem than gay men who don’t subscribe to the stereotypes. That is no true, I know “butch” gay men who are some of the most self-confident people I’ve ever met and know “queens” who are actually really fragile and suffer from low self-esteem.

      And this “he’s better and hotter than you because he’s a star” thing is laughable… does this also coincide with #5? I can walk into any room and find at least a handful of guys who are more attractive than Clay, they just aren’t famous. Being a celebrity doesn’t make you a better person. I know positive gay people who have done far more for the community anonymously than some actor playing a gay equivalent of “Amos N’ Andy” that deserve to be held in higher esteem than him, but won’t because they don’t look like a young Jason Bateman.

      Dear Mr Robertson : People can be blatantly mean and insulting be but when you disagree strongly with them you’re being too vehement and sad? Also,It’s an article about Chris Colfer, who am I suppose to defend here trees? And Isn’t that why we can comment in the first place, to criticize, support and defend? Since, there are blatant insults, I though I was allowed (without insulting anyone-the ugly paws made me laugh) to express my disagrement the way I wanted. Dear Ty: You know exactly what I meant when I commented, you can distort it all you want and make it look like I think celebs are better than us or anything. Of course gay or straight can dislike him, but the kind of insults he is getting here reminds me too much of the ones homophobes use, that’s why I was so “vehement” in the first place. If that makes me a sad person, then so be it. I always thought that those who trashed people gratoutuisly were the sad ones, all this years I’ve been mistaken, thanks for setting the record straight guys.

      @jau: Not that I dislike Kurt, but to be fair: Max may be a cartoon, but he isn’t a cartoon of a gay man. An analogy: Steppin Fetchit and Carlton Banks are both cartoons. But Steppin Fetchit is a cartoon of a black man, whereas Carlton is not. I think Ty was trying to say that that Kurt is a sort of gay Steppin Fetchit (not that I agree — that’s just the point he was making, and one that isn’t disproved by Max’s cartoonishness).

      @bob: Agreed!

      Moreover, people who dislike Chris Colfer are also responsible for the 2008 financial crisis, 9/11, the BP oil spill, the earthquakes in both Haiti AND Japan, rising tensions with Iran, and the meltdown at Fukushima. They wrote the Macarena and turned Two and a Half Men into the country’s top-rated sitcom. They gave the Oscar to Crash, made Mondo lose to Gretchen, and convinced Keri Russell that she totally looked better with short hair. They probably also caused the Holocaust. With their time machine.

      *And* they called our moms ugly.

      @bob: I wasn’t so much making a statement about teen suicide as making fun of your clear penchant for hyperbole.

      Also, no one is “bullying” a gay “kid” here: Colfer is a 21-year-old man. And I know that he’d probably be brought to the edge of despair if he ever read these comments (which I’m sure he does, because that’s totally what celebrities do with their time), but I have faith that his success, his millions of dollars, his loyal fan base, and what appears to be a grounded, well-adjusted personality would, in the end, allow him to pull through.

      @bob: Nope. I think that insofar as “rhetoric” plays a role in gay teen suicide, it’s the “you’re gay so I hate you” rhetoric used by homophobic straights, and not the “you’re effeminate and therefore not attractive to me” rhetoric used by some gays, that’s the culprit. In other words: I doubt there are many gay teens out there contemplating suicide because some bitchy queen didn’t find them butch enough.

Keep on telling yourself that the kind of insults Chris was getting weren’t the kind homophobes uses. Also, How about that double standard?

      People love to defend the “queens” who get slighted, but for crying out loud, nobody cries when the shoe is on the other foot. I have seen more “effeminate” gay men who claim that “straight acting” gay men are sellouts who are trying to be liked by straight people, and that masculine gay men have never had to “struggle” with their sexuality (and IMO those who don’t “give it off” have arguably had to struggle twice as hard because everyone just assumes one is straight) and the sort. No, you ask a homophobe why they hate gay men, and they’ll pretty much name-drop every trait that they use for Kurt.

      Sorry, but while it might not be PC to compare race and sexual orientation, Kurt for gays is nothing more than the watermelon eating stereotypical black man that was used in the 40’s and 50’s before the NAACP stood up.

      @bob:

      You forget that those who pass as straight have an even harder time coming out because nobody expects it from them. Those who fart rainbows and obsess over divas are generally already expected it, and they have a much easier time coming to terms with themselves. A straight-acting male can fake heterosexuality for years, you’ll never find a Chris Colfer type who somehow is married to a woman for years before coming to terms. Society already saw him as a gay male without saying anything, and it was easier for him to accept himself. Its the straight-acting gays who have more issues with hating themselves because they can “hide” it better so many of them see it as something they can fix. So please spare this “straight acting gay men don’t have struggles with their sexuality”. People who listen to Liza Minnelli don’t *own* that corner, ALL gay people have had to struggle with their orientation.

      1. Chris Colfer – probably a bottom, not my type.
      2. Zachary Quinto – probably versatile, would love to have sex with him!
      3. Nick Adams – probably versatile, too twinkish for me
      4. Christopher Rice – probably top, looks too angry for me. I want fun.
      5. Clay Aiken – def bottom, nope.
      6. Joe Carozza – top, not my type.
      7. Jay Brannan – don’t care, I’d spend days in the sack with him.
      8. Randy Harrison – bottom, and I’d def do him.
      9. Luke Macfarlane – what a dream! Probably versatile, I’d fuck him for a week.
      10. Tom Lenk – seems to me to be a bottom. Would also spend hours in the sack with him.

      haha same here, I’d spent days in bed with Jay too. He’s not necessarily the most masculine gay man, but he reeks sex appeal, something Colfer doesn’t. That is proof that you don’t have to be an uber-butch gay man to be sexy. Jay is Jay, he is just effortlessly sexy, Chris OTOH comes off very tacky and while he thinks his fashion sense is cool, it looks awful.

      but there’s this insinuation that because one can pass for straight, that person obviously isn’t a “real gay” and a “real member of the community”. I never said effeminate gay people don’t have to struggle, its those who insist that a gay football player never had to come to terms with his sexuality because he is what society deems “normal”, and if anything he’s had it just as hard if not worse because everyone already assumes they’re straight and have a girlfriend, “Kurt” types are already assumed gay before they come out. Hell, look at the godforsaken show, Kurt is this out, proud and happy gay while Kafosky was a closet case who attempts suicide because people cannot accept that a jock is gay.

      Are you kidding me? You yourself are living proof of how badly the gay community treats those who aren’t manly enough.

      And I can’t believe you’re trying to act like effeminate gays have it easier in society when you yourself admitted “you ask a homophobe why they hate gay men, and they’ll pretty much name-drop every trait that they use for Kurt.”

      Also, are you even watching the same show? The one where Kurt tried acting straight because he wanted to impress his father? The one where he was constantly picked on and bullied? The one where he didn’t get the role in the school play because they thought he was too effeminate? Ect, ect. Just because he didn’t try killing himself doesn’t mean he’s perfectly happy and accepted.

      How I “treat” others? Most of my friends in fact are considered “queens”. I just don’t sexually prefer guys who fall into that category. I don’t apologize for finding masculine guys more attractive.

      And yes, it is disheartening that when you see gays in media, 90% of the time, they are more like Kurt and Adam Lambert when I believe it’s the more “normal guy” gays out there like NPH and Russell Tovey who are the ones who are going to challenge ones homophobia more than those who fit exactly the stereotype homophobes already have already decided why gay people are automatically “different” and “unrelatable” to the average straight man.

      The majority of the gay guys on that list are masculine characters, so I don’t know where you got that 90% number. Kurt and Cameron from Modern Family are the only characters on the list who are really effeminate.

      Furthermore I don’t know how you are in real life, but in this thread you seem to be incredibly hostile to the gay people who are effeminate. And the whole idea that gay people need to stop acting “different” to be accepted is extremely problematic.
