To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand I’m gay. The humor is extremely subtle, and with or without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go I’m gay. There’s also I’m gay outlook, which is deftly woven into I’m gay - I’m gay draws heavily from Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsch literature, for instance.

The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realize that they’re not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike I’m gay truly ARE idiots - of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humour in I’m gay’s existential “I’m gay!” which itself is a cryptic reference to Dante’s Italian epic, Divine I’m Gay. I’m gay right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as I’m gay unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools… how I’m gay.

And yes by the way, I do have an I’m gay tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. Not unless you’re gay man

It’s the summer after the gang’s first year of grad school and Lafayette is off to France, Hercules is off to parts unknown, and John and Alex are moving into their own apartment. With three months on their own and few obligations, they’re looking forward to spending their days studying ghosts, working on their own projects, and being disgustingly in love. And that’s certainly how the summer starts–hanging out with Molly, going to baseball games, having lunch with Alex’s foster brother, and going on trips with von Steuben and his harem fill the first few weeks of summer, a steady stream of fun to distract them from the rest of the world.

But the world has a way of getting in, and after John drops sharply into a deep depression, Alex is left to try and figure out what’s wrong with him and why it hit him so suddenly. With their friends thousands of miles away and John alternating between refusing to get out of bed and putting himself in mortal danger, Alex struggles to get to the bottom of John’s trauma before he hurts himself or worse.

  • “Knowledge is power.”
  • “The best part of beauty is that which no picture can express.”
  • “Write down the thoughts of the moment. Those that come unsought for are commonly the most valuable.”
  • “The way of fortune is like the milkyway in the sky; which is a number of small stars, not seen asunder, but giving light together: so it is a number of little and scarce discerned virtues, or rather faculties and customs, that make men fortunate.”

Michel de Montaigne

  • “Lend yourself to others, but give yourself to yourself.”

  • “You don’t look out there for God, something in the sky, you look in you.”
  • “Never pretend to a love which you do not actually feel, for love is not ours to command.”
  • “To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don’t grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float.”

“We are your daughters, your sisters, your sons, your nurses, your mechanics, your athletes, your police, your politicians, your fathers, your doctors, your soldiers, your mothers. We live with you, care for you, help you, protect you, teach you, love you, and need you. All we ask is that you let us. We are no different. We want to serve, like you. Need love, like you. Feel pain, like you. And we deserve justice, like you.“ – Colonel Margarethe Cammermeyer

Just a few of the LGBTQ veterans who have served since the first day of the Republic: Harvey Milk, Margarethe Cammermeyer, Leonard Matlovich, Johnnie Phelps, Kristen Beck, and Baron Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben, “the savior of the Revolution.”
