I’m sure of who I am. I was born this way. I have nothing to hide … [E]veryone’s been really positive. … I just got a mail from someone who lives around here, who said ‘I’m never going to come to your games again, because you’ve got a faggot in your team’. So what am I supposed to do? I’m supposed to cry in a corner for you?

He’s a treat for the eyes.
He’s adorable. He’s got balls, too.
You know that Lady Gaga didn’t actually invent the term “born this way” right?
“I was born this way” is not quoting lady gaga. That phrase has been used by gay people for so long.

I know, tha god not someone who goes on about crying and being ashamed! And wanting to be straight!
Wow, what confidence and courage. It’s the kind of remark you expect out of a straight person, but now many of us gay people have the confidence that we have a right to be here to make such a statement. Great guy.
Maybe he heard the Carl Bean song? Oh wait that doesn’t count because it came before Madonna……
Anyone else having probs accessiñg this site? i keep getting message that it’s “temporaily unavailable” & something to with no “node available.”It’s been happening off & on all day. i checked on two other laptops, same story.
sorry to be off topic….
@Jeffree: GLAD YOU BROUGHT IT UP. IT TAKES FOREVER TO ACCESS THIS SITE SOMETIME. iT ALMOST ISN’T WORTH IT.
@Harbo: I’m glad I’m not the only one experiencing technical glitches on this site. I hope they resolve the issues!
@Jeffree: you mean there are suitable nodes to service your request? I get that message 3 times a day on here. Never on any other blog.
(Oo bad our friend maxchupa doesn’t have that problem.
@justiceontherocks: Usually I get the “no gateway response message” but today it’s been “no node” or “unavailable” msgs. Yep, it’s oo bad the fake russkie mâfia doesn’t seem to trïgger that message or the spæm fïlter!
That soccer player is now scratching his head saying “Hey, why did they stop talking about *ME*?” !

Don’t think he cares. He’s refused a tonne of interviews.
@Jeffree: Queerty will not load at all if you are using the newest version of Firefox. Not entirely sure why, but it has to do with ad.afy11, which I think is a Google Ads thing. I can access Queerty now only using Internet Explorer, and it’s not really worth it, Queerty being what it is now, with non-articles like this one.
@Eminent Victorian: Thanks for the 411. I don’t have Firefox or IE, but the error messages have lessened. Still getting some “no gateway response” msgs on various laptops & mobiles, so I think the Qty servers just can’t keep up with the trâffic.
Many of the better commenters have left this site; too many trolls, too much of the fake-Russian sockpuppets and too little real news. It’s sad to see a place like this go down in flames, but since none of the hôsts seem to care what happens here, I think we’re watching a drowning man bob up & down for the last time or two,,,
I’m reminded of the scene in “Murder by Death” in which Truman Capote corrects the grammar of Charlie Chan. Are the same person, are the same person. For christ’s sake try!
Well, if Queerty goes down the tubes it makes sense for it to do so in flames. Big, flamey, misspelled, non-fact-checked flames. But it is too bad. I used to read this site every day until it just became too irritating. Better options are poised to take its place, like Fagburn, World of Wonder, and, in all seriousness, Lady Bunny’s blog.
@Eminent Victorian: Send lînks & a small bottle of vodka! Add “plus one” to the chorus who hate to see how this place has gone to the dawgs.
@JusticeOnTheRussianRocks: Hallo, my favorite legal sock-puppet! See you in the mirror !
@Soupy: Hello, twin comrade. You is two criticalistic when it comes to argumentizing & but you shine at the selection of finest craps to eat. Cynep cynúu ! (that means more or less Super Soupy….)
He isn’t Sweden’s only out soccer player. Victoria Svensson, team captain of Sweden’s Women’s National Football Team, is openly lesbian.
And yeah, Lady GaGa did not originate the phrase “born this way”. Using Lady GaGa’s name to get higher rankings in google are we Queerty?
If loving big dicked lesbian, crap eating, stupid fat donkey Jeffree is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
BORN THIS WAY means from as far as we can remember….i cam empathize with him!
Good for him. This is what is needed to allow the “normal” world to accept us a people and not freaks of nature. We are queer because God likes wonderous variety. I robbed that from Robin Hood “Prince of thieves”, but it is true. Look at the variety of life forms on th earth. Might not that variety be genetically expressed in peoples brains.When the world sees celebrity announce their homosexuality without embarassment or shame, it send a powerful message. I hope that someday I will have that courage to come out to my parents and son. My wife already knows. We are seperating in three months.
