Queerty And GLAAD Suggest Making Thanksgiving Extra Queer And Awkward This Year

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation’s Thanksgiving campaign says there no better opportunity to bring up LGBT issues than at an overwrought meal surrounded by judgmental blood relatives. GLAAD says, “Of those who were now more supportive of LGBT equality, four out of five cited personally knowing someone who was LGBT as a primary reason” and add, “[If Aunt Betty can talk about] a year’s worth of ailments and medical treatments… you can talk about your partner.”

Not only do we agree, but we also made two promotional banners to join in the awkward fun!

Oh and if you’re looking for some dinnertime innuendo, try the list of 18 dirty things you can only say on Thanksgiving. It includes lines like, “Don’t play with your meat” and “Tying the legs together keeps the inside moist.”

    On the flip side:

    Tell your gay uncle that your best friend since grammar school is gay and you are bringing him to dinner so he can meet other gay people.

    yep, got that email last week. Nephew and friend are both 18.

    Thanksgiving, 3 years ago, middle of the dinner, Mom asks my lesbian neighbour who teaches English, whether ‘cock ring’ is “one word or two.” Awkward!

    I have an uncle Joe and he is gay, so he might be interested in hearing about it.
