The internet’s newest man-crush is sure to win few more gay hearts today with news that he reached out to a man who received some homophobic bullying at work.
Degas Sikorski worked at a Party City in Canada to put himself through college when he received an anonymous “valentine” that read: “Faggot. You are not getting shifts for a reason.” Yikes. His mother posted the photo on Facebook, and it then went viral and caught the eye of out gay politician Randy Boissonnault.
Boissonnault presented Sikorski with a new Valentine’s Day card with words of support from various politicians, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who wrote: “Dear Degas, know that your friends outnumber the haters by the millions and I’m one of those friends.”
Cute and supportive, right?
Sikorski was overwhelmed with the support. He told CBC News:
“It was hard not to cry at the moment when I saw that somebody who I see as above me and almost godly in my eyes, as you’re taught in high school, is giving me a personal message. It just took all the words out of my mouth. I knew equality and LGBTQ issues were a thing for Justin Trudeau, I just didn’t think that an issue that I experienced myself would be so close to home for him.”
Trudeau’s support was right on time for Sikorski, and it’s certainly red meat for the Obama/Trudeau ‘shippers. And we know you’re out there.
He’s such a very handsome man
I adore this guy ð???â¤ï¸
Justin Trudeau is someone to watch— he is going to do great things. I wish he was running for president of the USA in 2016
We’re quite proud of our PM, – very cool leader in many ways. A Trump he is NOT! Mr Trudeau is a insightful, clever classy dude!
Trudeau was enducated in Montreal, Quebec, one of the most tolerant cities in the world. His late dad was a great supporter of gay rights. I got to shake Justin’s hand when attended my cousin’s wedding. He has the softest hands! Would you believe he’s a great boxer too! He’s perfect! 🙂
@leobaga: Why would you ever shake his hand? He is quite left wing and liberal? Everything you are not.
This man is everything Trump isn’t. And I like him way more than Hillary. Hillary is my candidate… But we don’t have a Trudeau running in our Presidential race. And please don’t say Sanders).
I think you are full of yourself. He never went to your cousins wedding. Talk about a great fiction story.
My Prime Minister……because it’s 2016 !!
@GC1985: leaving your skid mark of a presence once again I see…..?
@iggy6666: you got that right. She’s a drama queen on drugs! Lol
He is just too gorgoeus
Christ, does Trump have to get mentioned in every freaking thread?
@robho3: He might as well run for President. He’s just as eligible as that right-wing weirdo Cruz who was born in Canada to a dad without a US Birth Certificate. Btw, more and more states are taking his name OFF the ballot!
Well when President Trump starts the next U.S. Civil War, I hope the east coast gets to be part of Canada.
Canada can be a very homophobic country.
@Brian: Sure, especially in Alberta and Saskatchewan. But Canada’s largest cities Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and Ottawa are among the most gay-friendly cities in the world. I know, I grew up in Montreal. My best friend is straight. Will visit the city again this summer.
@iggy6666: Why don’t you go back into obscurity? Like Bernie tonight?
@leobaga: You’re the one on drugs. YOu don’t quite think right. Explains the Trump support. Mentally unbalanced.
@leobaga: So why are you supporting the anti-gay republican party if you care so much about same sex marriage and equality?
@GC1985: Um.. because Trump is not an evangelical and second, Trump is not anti-gay nor anti-gay marriage. And he is dismembering homophobic bible thumper Ted Cruz, for which service I am grateful.
@leobaga: Um, you still didn’t answer my question. Why are you supporting him? All his vague policy ideas would do incredible harm to this country and to our image.
You won’t answer my question. Both Cruz and Trump are utter sh*t. And the republican party is the package that comes with either of them. You bet I won’t vote for that bigoted party. By the way, Trump has got support from evangelicals for some reason… so why are you supporting a man that gets backing from bigots?
Trump is a disaster and so are you!
@GC1985: don’t waste your time on those 2 screwballs. They are just your typical internet trolls that don’t deserve attention.
@GC1985: my friend, even if this idiot gives you a direct answer to your direct question, the answer will be idiotic.
@leobaga: Thanks for the propaganda video, but it doesn’t answer my question. I need actual reasons why he would be better than any democrat. Even a drunk guy on the street is more appealing than Trump.
@Invert: He couldn’t even do that and instead posted a ridiculous video.
@GC1985: obscurity….. like you’re anyone of significance on queerty, you’re right up there with woman hater Brian, a hot mess.
@wade.l: yes. I’m the troll…. gc1985 flat out calls someone a liar for something he has no knowledge about. Who is he to tell another person who they did or DID NOT meet at a wedding!?!??
Makes me proud to be the Queen of Canada.
@iggy6666: You seem to have some issues. How about getting your ego in check before attacking me? And it is nice you talk about attacking people you don’t know. Why are you attacking me then? Hypocrite. Go back into lurker status please. And you seem to be closer to Brian. I don’t care for lying bigots like you.
@iggy6666: Also gay republicans are vile to me and just about everyone else here. I don’t care for Trump supporters.
@iggy6666: You speak the truth, bro! Preach!
@GC1985: what am I lying about?? Did you or did you not tell someone that they NEVER met Trudeau at a wedding?
Bigot…. you throw that word around a lot, doesn’t hold any value or meaning coming for you. Looking forward to your reply!!?
@Brian: Like any other country, yet Canada has had marriage equality for over 10 years, with all the benefits, Canada allowed gays and lesbian in the army way before the US, we have gay MP’s, gay premiers and our gay politicians are out and do not live in the closet. There is homophobia everywhere, but I bet there is more homophobia in Texas and the Bible Belt than in Canada. We did not have a Kim Davis when we legalised cvil gay marriages, no province made an effort to ban gay marriages
Should I explain more?
@iggy6666: Sure he met Trudeau. And I met the Dalai Lama and Pope… At the same time lulz.
People tend to post exaggerated stories in order to improve their own standing. Sad. I don’t see why a rabid Trump supporter would be so fond of Trudeau anyways. Trudeau is an ideological opposite to Trump.
You need to keep your histrionics in check.
@leobaga: You’re a good parrot. I still don’t see how someone can like Trudeau and Trump at the same time. Trudeau would kick Trump in the rear if he was running for US President.
Ideological opposites. Clear enough, parrot?
@GC1985: christ……You’d argue that the sky is red…..long live Giancrazy!
