Q: That sounds like great fun. Now, this being for my Gay Guide to Glee column, everyone wants to know about all the gay stuff. We all know your character will be a queer kid from a rival high school, and that he’ll befriend and become a mentor to Kurt. What we don’t know is, what kind of gay is he? Prissy? Butch? Bitchy? Evil? Dishy? Lying? Warm? Sporty? Tough? Slutty? Western? Chaste? Fashion forward? Retro? …”Normal?”
D: Those are all delightful adjectives for anyone gay or straight. I will say, um, the reference is that he’s very Tom Ford-ish. He’s very charismatic, put-together, composed guy. Gay. But I wouldn’t say he’s overly queeny, and not too butch either. He’s just very…composed. The fact that he’s gay isn’t at the forefront of who he is. It is in terms of who he is personally, yes, but in terms of how people perceive him, it seems very matter of fact. And it’s introduced almost as a superfluous part of who he is. Obviously it’s not. It’s a huge part of who he is. But in terms of how he wishes to be perceived, it’s not a huge part.
Blaine is a very, very cool cool guy. He’s experienced many of the same trials and tribulations that Kurt has. When we meet him, Blaine sees a lot of himself in Kurt, in terms of experiences and the way they feel about the world around them. He feels the need to impart his knowledge, be a source of strength for him, and really help him through what he’s going through. He has such a wonderful energy. I couldn’t feel more positive about this.
He makes my heart happy.
This guy. I like him.
