We love giggly, exuberant voices.
Do you remember Paul Lynde’s snarky laugh on Bewitched? Charles Nelson Reilly’s troubled moan on the Match Game? Or Richard Hunt’s sympathetic meeps as Beaker on the Muppet Show?
The memorable affectations delivered by these wonderful gay men in cartoons, sitcoms and game shows have amused audiences for years. You may not have even known they were gay, but it sure sounded like they were. Even now, actors, podcasters and video bloggers continue this great tradition, but as openly gay men.
Today we’re talking to video blogger Jonnie Jenkins who just started posting his videos on YouTube as the Phat Gay Kid a little over a month ago. His over the top clucks and giggles have quickly endeared him to a huge audience. Don’t dismiss him as just another lonelygirl15 starving for attention- Jonnie’s received a lot of praise from radio stations, bloggers, and even musician Ke$ha and comedian George Lopez.
We bet dollars to donuts that he’ll be on the Out 100 list thisyear.
Listen as we talk with Jonnie about how he’s managed to build his following so quickly, his enthusiasm for hot air ballooning, and how he handles the people who cringe at his outlandish mannerisms and song stylings.
Plus all the hot news:
A gay pride parade in Russia turns into a flash mob to outwit police.
Madonna, Elton John, and other human rights groups succeed in getting the President of Malawi to pardon a gay couple imprisoned for having a gay wedding.
And a new study by Leiden University in the Netherlands gives further proof that gaydar really exists.
