    Well, at least most of my picks won. The ones that didn’t win that I chose were “Bridegroom”, Paco Leon (Cheyenne Jackson is a douche), and the Grandmother who wrote the pro-gay song. I didn’t care who won the app that will get you laid or the guiltiest pleasure TV show as I don’t use apps to get sex or watch any of the show choices.

    Awwww Andy Cohen didn’t win. Guess Queerty’s shoving him down our throats each and every chance didn’t pay off.

  • Dxley

    I’m happy that Andy Cohen didn’t win, happy that Cheyenne Jackson did and pissed that “Bridegroom” didn’t.

    You can hate Cheyenne all you want, @DarkZephyr, but you and I both know those guys never stood a chance. Just a fact.

    Who is Eliad Cohen?

    Come on, people. Bomer, Martins and Watkins are way better than Harris. They’re are gorgeous and he’s not. I love him but his win doesn’t count in my books!!!

  • pauleky

    @Dxley: Yes, because looks are all that matter. Ugh – shallowness makes me sad.

  • ArtsyBabe

    Ok so you can jump all over me BUT I have to ask…who really likes being called “Queer” I mean it just sounds odd and nasty. The thought of calling anyone I know who is gay a queer sounds offensive. The gays I do know do not like the term. Steve Grand is not queer..he is a hot, hunk of male goodness a H.H.O.M.G but certainly not queer. Just sayin’ I would also think Queerty needs to change it’s name..that’s a keyboard! :)

    I don’t care who won as this is entirely frivolous and meaningless. However, I did note that there is only one category of any substance: Marriage Equality Champion, which ignores all other aspects of LGBT civil rights. And BTW, the winner’s name is Edie Windsor, with a “d”.

    CONGRATULATIONS to all the winners and the nominees and for providing a POSITIVE ATTITUDE for moving our country forward on EQUAL RIGHTS!

    1. Sad to see Kim Ho lose to a singer who can’t sing …
    2. A real miscarriage of justice that Bridegroom lost ….
    3. Really think Robbie Rogers groundbreaking should have been acknowledged …
    4. Would have gone with Catfish (hehe), but Scandal no slouch either …
    5. Got to give it up to Blake Skjellerup for standing up for us gays …
