Orlando & Walt: Gay once again

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 10-33Today at Orlando's Walt Disney World Resort, the annual Gay Days event kicks off for the 17th year.

And in a related story, for more than a few Southern youngsters waiting in line this week at Space Mountain or the Tower of Terror, a light bulb of realization will pop in their heads, as they start to realize why the opposite sex looks about as appealing to them as those boring Epcot pavilions to which their parents keep dragging them.

Not that this particular Southern-reared gay boy is speaking from experience or anything.  It's just for some reason, an early 90's day in which I was waiting in line for "Honey I Shrunk The Audience," yet enamored by the "honey" who shrunk his shorts, is a memory that's lodged in my brain's bank.  And of trying to think about my "girlfriend," but instead concentrating on the man who called the other man "girlfriend."  And finally realizing what girls meant when they said a "six pack" (even if this particular dude's was more like an 8).   Thinking about just takes me right...oh sorry, where was I?  Oh yea...

Gay Days runs through 6/4.  Here's hoping that whether waiting in line to merely ride a ride or waiting in line to actually get to live their truths, all in park attendance this week will know a life where wishing on a star "makes no difference who you are," not one where they're told "It's a small world...and you're not welcome in it!"
