why sam evans is so important
I think Sam is one of the best characters on TV, and yeah I’m biased cause I love Glee but if you just let me explain I think you can see why I would say that.
When I was in high school I had a gay best friend and we were in theater together. We bonded over music, dancing, and boys (ooh lala). We used to sit in my car until really late at night talking about life and he broke down crying one night because he was sad he didn’t have any guy friends. I told him it wasn’t a big deal and I’m sure that he could hang out with some of the guys from theater. (I know, I was just naive). That’s when he told me something I will never forget, he said “I just want to be friends with the guys and play video games and talk about all the stuff they talk about too. But they all think if they are nice to me I will just have a crush on them and they are all too afraid of that to even talk to me more than what is necessary.” He was so heartbroken and it completely broke my heart seeing him like that.
And I saw Sam Evans on Glee and I think he is so underrated. When Finn told him that he couldn’t sing with Kurt, do you remember what he said??
I love this scene because it didn’t matter to someone like Sam that a gay boy wanted to sing with him. His only observation on the matter was how talented Kurt was.
He even stands by his decision when Kurt tells him to get another duet partner. He didn’t care about singing with another guy, it didn’t affect him. This is so important. And then we all know what happens with Sam and Blaine… they become the world’s cutest best friends. If the boys at my high school were like Sam, maybe my best friend would have felt more accepted. I love Sam so much and he’s just such a wonderful character! (Blam friendship pics under because how can you not?)
