America Absolutely Lost It for Glee‘s Gay ‘Teenage Dream’

Glee‘s cast recording of “Teenage Dream,” performed by Darren Criss’ Blaine as a flirting-slash-back-slapping opus to Chris Colfer’s Kurt (watch it here), is the show’s best-selling single to date, says show creator Ryan Murphy. That’s pretty amazing, since it’s a love ditty between two dudes. The commercial approval of the single is also is nice, because some of those funds might be going toward paying the salary of a counselor of Harvey Milk School in NYC — a job that was eliminated due to budget cuts, but which Glee is underwriting (in addition to $25k in scholarship funds) so gay students are better equipped.
