THE KILLOUGH CHRONICLES
by James Killough
It seems to have been very moving for non-LGBTs to see Chaz Bono on Dancing With The Stars. He has even persuaded the skeptical, maybe even some of those who were initially outraged that he was going to appear on such a wholesome show, although I doubt the Christian groups which called for a boycott of the season were ever appeased.
Male model Andrej Prejic was named the 98th sexiest woman in the world by men's magazine FHM, which also called him a "thing."
For most of us in Homolandia, it wasn’t a big deal at all, of course. We live in a magical parallel world like Harry Potter’s, full of all sorts of odd, splendid creatures walking around fucking with your reality and casting spells.
