I HATED to see Tyranny and Osvaldo weren’t a perfect match! (STILL BITTER) They were the cutest couple ever. But my overall favorite moment in this episode is where Osvaldo was HURT/ANGRY/DISAPPOINTED AF and punching the bag/about to cry, and Eddie just grabs him and HUGS him. Like a genuine HUG.
TWO GROWN ASS MEN. MEN OF COLOR WHILE WE’RE AT IT.
FRIENDS. SHOWING EMOTION. BEING VULNERABLE.
HUGGING. ONE CRYING ON THE OTHER’S SHOULDER.
OTHER GUYS GATHERING AROUND THEM IN SUPPORT.
THE PUREST THING I’VE EVER SEEN ON MTV.
I can’t even say how touching this moment was. I was already crying about Tyvaldo, but this moment DID IT for me.
I feel like a lot of the public has this mentality that like, any celebrity who hasn’t come out publicly and supports or positively references LGBT issues and things can’t possibly be gay themselves because wouldn’t that be too obvious????
And it’s like, nope. They could still be gay.
And it’s okay to maybe think those kind of gestures mean something…
