WATCH: Gay Twins Say They Were Bullying Victims, Now Friends With Dolly

Out identical twins Gary and Larry Lane have been open about their sexual orientation for much of their careers, but the two have recently revealed they survived intense antigay bullying as young boys. The two men, whose acclaimed 2011 documentary Hollywood to Dollywood detailed their amazing journey to meet their idol Dolly Parton, share stories of their youth when they were overweight youngsters who were picked on for looking alike (!) and how they leaned on each other for support.

The Lanes filmed the video for the Friend Movement, a campaign aimed at showing “positive anti-bully images through art and media.”

    Twins that are gay?

    [ruminates for a minute]

    Ok. I am not even going to go there!

    @Cagnazzo82: Nah, while he is not my twin, my brother is bisexual, and just because brothers may share same sex attraction it does not mean that they will share each others bed.

  • tdx3fan

    @DarkZephyr: Except for those who do share each other’s bed. Some brothers enjoy each other. Rather that is right or wrong is mostly for them to decide.

    Double the pleasure,
    Double the fun.
    Doublemint, Doublemint Chewing Gum?

    Can we talk???

    @Cagnazzo82: If you don’t want to go there with twins then you should avoid the increasing number of triplets doing gay porn.

  • DarkZephyr

    @tdx3fan: it does happen but it’s the exception rather than the rule so it’s highly unlikely that these men are doing such things. I know plenty of people have fantasies about it though because you would not believe how many gay men has asked my brother and I if we have made love. Some even trying to get us drunk and trying to talk us into it while they watch. Lol. So not gonna happen.

    My God. Well. I am going to suppress my visceral reaction to some of the comments here, and focus on the practical: I hope NOM’s “Propaganda Minister in Charge of Slippery-Slope-ism” doesn’t come across this page.
