Watch: 'Hockey Luvin Homos' are NHL's Newest Super Fans

Hockeyluvinhomos

"Henrietta" and "Daniella", a pair of "Hockey Luvin Homos", became are quickly becoming viral celebs after appearing on screen during the L.A. Kings - Vancouver Canucks match-up on Thursday night.

They've already been interviewed by Yahoo's "Puck Daddy" blog:

Henrietta said they're both gay and have been "ardent Canuck fans for many long suffering years." On his Facebook page, there are images of his attendance during last year's Stanley Cup Playoffs at Rogers Place.

"We have made appearances at Gay Sports Bars in Vancouver as the Sisters ... Henrietta and Daniella with great hilarity and support.  This was not a stunt or done to be rude or offensive. We were there to show our and the Vancouver Gay community's total and absolute support of our Canucks as they took the Presidents [Trophy] and begin their journey to the Stanley Cup," wrote Henrietta in an email.

Daniella obtained the tickets for his friend Henrietta's 50th birthday, and the two decided to create a spectacle with their attire. Inside the arena, they posed for photos with other fans and with families, at first covering the word "Homo" with silver tape with a Vancouver logo on it.

"We held back the word 'Homo' for the first two periods until we gauged the reaction of the crowd to our costumes, not wanting to be offensive," said Henrietta.

Watch as the tape is removed, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. Ugh, just the image we should be putting out there to sports fans. This is why we won't have gay marriage for another generation.

  3. Todd: yeah, if only homos would better conform to heterosexual norms, everyone could join in their dead-end institutions!

    Canada already has same-sex marriage, anyway, so normativity wouldn’t get these people anywhere.

  5. I saw this last night (I'm a Kings fan) and I had to rewind my DVR a bit to make sure I wasn't seeing things.

    The Canucks have a great team this year, I'm picking them to win the Stanley Cup. The long-suffering fans in Vancouver deserve it.

  6. nothing like a little levity in a bs world of dividing straight and gay.

    think about the venue...it's one where men dominate...in the most typical butch fashion...and of late one of the most vitriolic in treating gays badly (remember all the gay taunts this past year?).

    i know that they won over folk with a sense of humor...the ones you want anyhow. screw whoever at the game might have gotten on their homophobe...this life is too short to suffer their ignorance

  9. As long as my beloved Canucks keep winning the fans can do what they want. Towel power activate!!

  10. According to the Vancouver Sun, they were removed from the arena when they refused to cover up: http://www.vancouversun.com/sports/Hockey+Luvin+Homos+turfed+from+Canucks+game/4546655/story.html

  11. What a bunch of attention seekers!

    Posted by: J | Apr 2, 2011 2:46:43 AM


  12. Notice the reason given for their removal was that "homo" is derogatory. Goes to show that policing of offensive words and speech necessarily involves silencing the very people the policing is supposed to protect.

  13. I hope this is just a sick April Fools joke. The damage that this disgusting display does to gay people is immeasurable, especially in the realm of sports, where players are struggling to be accepted as equals. These two degenerates are showing not only a lack of respect for themselves with their minstrel show antics, they are disrespecting all of those in attendance including the coaches and players.

  14. in the straight world, their calling themselves by female names diminishes themselves and their cause. i find this disgusting. these she-males do NOT represent me.

    Posted by: nic | Apr 2, 2011 6:56:37 AM


  15. Yay! Who cares. Is everyone gay somehow reflective of you?? Id hate to see what you do in the bedroom marys. It could push our movement back a few decades. Pft.

    Posted by: Good lord | Apr 2, 2011 7:28:35 AM


  16. @ TODD, HANK and NIC: It is called having fun! Putting on a wig and wearing pink t-shirts is hardly a violent act, and frankly the fact you use the words "degenerates" and "she-males" makes me think you are straight anti-gay trolls...

    Are you actually suggesting that wearing a wig and painting the face may upset the delicate sensibility and dignity of sports fans? Who are known for... painting their faces and wearing wigs?

    I'd sure hate for 2 men in clown drag to damage the dignity of the shirtless, face-painted, torso-painted, beer-helmet wearing dignitaries! Lighten. The hell. Up.

  17. Todd and Hank, WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE??? You're worse than the WBC. Pull your panties out of your clenched up a-holes and take a deep breath. Vancouver is one of the most liberal cities in the most liberal country in North America. They have a naked bike ride through the city once a year. I think it's a pretty safe bet that two silly Canuck fans wearing some cheesy wigs and expressing their love for the game isn't going to cause the repeal of every civil rights law on the books.
    Degenerates? Showing a lack of respect? What century are you from? They're having fun and the gays of Vancouver are crazy for their Canucks. It's people like you who set us back... to the Dark Ages.

  18. ....but there are rules for the arena.
    Their attire did not follow the rules.

    Why is that so hard to understand guys and gals?

    I don't find the shirts either amusing or not amusing; I'd probably dig the wigs, but the shirt is ugh.

    They KNEW it would/could/might cause a problem as they had "homo" taped over until the 3rd period.
    So there you go!

  19. @Todd: Perhaps you should be taking a look at why you feel women are subhuman. Go ahead! Do some deep soul searching and I think it'll begin to dawn on you what your internalized homophobia is about.

    Go ahead, I'll wait...

  20. @Todd and Hank:

    You guys are absolutely correct. Some gay men just cannot get it through their thick heads that reinforcing stereotypes about us as sissies and quasi-women are the biggest barrier to our acceptance and that society will NEVER accept, nor should it, the degradation of masculinity that some of them seem to want, for whatever bizarre reason. Never.

    The people attacking you probably think we gain something by having two stereotypical effeminate gay men on "Modern Family"....when it is really just the contemporary equivalent of "Amos and Andy" in which white people were laughing AT the "step-'n-fetch-it" black characters, not laughing WITH them.

    That might have been OK 30 years ago when just having gay characters of any sort on TV would have been a breakthrough, but now, all it does is hold us back...

  21. Seems some censoring is being done on this site yet again... Oh well, ill just keep reposting then.

    Rick, i agree with you. Gay does not equal fem and im getting really sick of being homophobic when i dont identify with fem types. Frankly its this attitude from the fems that is making the dislike for them even worse.

    Posted by: Rovex | Apr 2, 2011 1:18:59 PM


  22. Those guys are allowed to have whatever "fun" they want to, but they are in fact reinforcing the "all gays like to dress in drag" stereotype. It's just not a good look. They look foolish.

    Posted by: Brian in Texas | Apr 2, 2011 3:21:04 PM


  23. These guys are REAL gay people. Just as the characters on Modern Family represent the characteristics of REAL gay people. Why should they be asked to sacrifice who the are. There are plenty of other shows (Brothers and Sisters, Grey's Anatomy...) who portray gays in a way that may make you feel less uncomfortable. Your views don't make you a self-hating gay or a homophobe, they just make you an arrogant, judgmental, intolerant prick.

  24. The modern day gay equivalent of wearing black face. They aren't being laughed with, but laughed at.

    Just my opinion.

    Posted by: ratbastard | Apr 2, 2011 4:53:49 PM


  25. Lord, what overreaction.

    I frequently clash with those who attempt to ascribe immutable characteristics - other than same-sex attraction - to gay people. The 'Born This Way's' website - with its arbitrary conflation of sassiness and homosexuality - is tiresome in the extreme.

    But it also gets at what we're fighting for. We're not fighting to fit in with straight people, nor are we fighting to achieve equality while presupposing unbreakable distinctions - let's call that the tyranny of Queer theory. We're fighting for the right to make a choice to live our lives as we see fit, within the same framework of rights and freedoms that heterosexuals enjoy. And the inherent right - the right above all others - is to make a choice about how we individually present ourselves to the world, and to respect the choices of others.

    I share some of the disdain for how these two present themselves, but it's their choice to make. And I suspect it will have little effect on how anyone already views gay people.
