Christian Siriano’s Big Pre-Coming Out Day Coming Out Story

This weekend is more than just Cleve Jones’ birthday and the National Equality March. Sunday also marks National Coming Out Day, an annual tradition where gays young and old ruin family barbecues. Who better to discuss the importance of the day than fashion wunderkind and new author Christian Siriano, who stopped by Joy Behar’s show, which nobody watches.

Siriano is one of the lucky ones: his parents “knew” he was a G, and coming out didn’t send them running for an open oven. Then there’s the peanut gallery piped in via satellite, some of whom didn’t have it so easy. Sad!

But it was Joy who steals the show. In discussing why all of America’s gays leave their conservative hometowns, Joy explains: “It’s a gay place to come.” Oh Joy, always mixing the gays and the unintentional sex jokes.

    Mr siriano needs to stop with the kate goselin hair-do…..otherwise good for him!!

  • dgz

    STEVENELLIOT: He gives himself a “wedgie” each morning!!!

    I don’t ever want to see the words Christian Siriano and pre-coming in the same line again.

    To Jason: are you the same Jason who posted in the other article on the FTM college presenter? If so, you really need an education. You can’t tell the difference between a gay man and a trans person and you’re gay yourself. That’s pathetic.

    I’m not defending what he said in the other post or bigotry against transgendered individuals, but I think Jason is referring to Christian’s incessant use of the word “tranny”

  • Jason


    You would be a hot tranny mess.

    Ya gotta love this sassy little queen! I don’t think anyone’s jaw dropped when he announced he was Gay! However the kid is mad talented, says whats on his mind, and is a great role model for young Gay kids by showing that you can be yourself and still be successful………However I do hate him for one reason: one of his ex’s revealed that Christian is redicuously (sp!)hung!! (those skinny little guys always have a pleasant suprise down there)
