Some theatrical gay activists are taking on the musical remake of John Waters’ cult classic, Hairspray. It seems the drama-ramas are making some drama over Scientologist John Travolta‘s dual roles as Edna Turnblad and Arvin Hodgepile. As you know, those crazy scientologists don’t believe in medicine, faggotry or fun of any flavor.
Now Washington Blade managing editor Kevin Naff‘s helping rally the troops for a good old fashioned boycott. He tells MSNBC:
Travolta, a prominent Scientologist, has no business reprising an iconic gay role, given his [religion’s] stance on gay issues. It’s well known that Scientology rejects gays and lesbians as members and even operates reparative therapy clinics to ‘cure’ homosexuality.
Naff goes on to suggest that Divine, who originated the roles, is “spinning in her grave”. Um, Naff obviously doesn’t know Divine. That bitch is probably gathering strength to reanimate, eat her way out of her grave and wreak havoc on all of Tinsel Town. Except West Hollywood, of course…
