Watch: 'Glee' Ends Concert Tour With Same-Sex Love

Glee_Kiss

The cast of Glee brought the house down in Dublin, where they ended the Glee Concert Tour last night, complete with a surprise kiss between actresses Heather Morris and Naya Rivera.

Sure not to be outdone, actors Darren Criss and Chris Colfer also exchanged some same-sex smooches.

Watch the video, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. They played their characters?! WTF? I thought they were supposed to be the cast members on tour.

    Still great to hear young people in Ireland cheering a gay couple kissing!

    Oh, kids these days.

  3. The show jumped the shark in December 2009.

    Many complain about Kurt and I just have to make this one point: Kurt's obnoxiousn­­ess has nothing to do with sexual orientatio­­n.

    Kurt is annoying because he's self-absor­­bed and melodramat­­ic NOT because he's homosexual­­.

    Do NOT mistake 1) sexual orientatio­­n for, 2) cultural identity. The first is biological­ly determined and naturally occurring; the second is ACQUIRED.

    Kurt was born liking guys NOT loving Cher and singing show tunes. Homosexual­s are born. Gays are constructe­d.

    Unfortunately this disctincti­on is lost on everyone. It's especially sad most "Gays" do not get this.

    "Official Gay Identity" (in America) is nothing more that PTSD - a reaction-formation CONSTRUCTE­D and ACQUIRED as a response to heterosexi­­st bigotry.

    What's gonna happen when The Gays can serve openly and get married in all 50 states? Their defensive, opposition­al culture of marginaliz­ation will recede. Meaning characters like Kurt (and reports of same sex kisses like this one) will be pointless, anathema.

  4. @ Mark...Oh for christs sake. Its a tv show meant to entertain, not solve world peace. I suggest you dont watch it if its not to your liking.

  6. season 1 of glee was fresh and great with plot 7 character development being in the lead while the music fit and supported that

    everything after season 1 sucks with the focus being what music stars songs can they fill an episode with and screw plot and character development.

  7. I have mixed feelings here. On the one hand, I agree with those who think Mark is over-reacting; and say, with them, "Get over yourself. It's a television show!"

    On the other hand, I agree with Mark that the Kurt character comes off as obnoxious at times. I really hope that's not how mainstream straight people think of gay people.

  8. Two points: I have to agree with Mark a little.......we do have an oppositional culture but when the time comes that we don't have to be oppositional we will channel our energy into greater creativity and be a really positive part of society rather than a protesting part.......yes, I know we are positive and creative at the moment , I simply mean we will be more so.


    Second; Go Dublin, it's now one of the most gay friendly destinations in Europe......we have had to grow up quickly, and we did.

  9. I've seen the tour. Yes they play their characters and Golden Globe winner Chris Colfer aka Kurt gets the most applause of anyone whenever he's onstage so get over yourselves. People love him as Kurt.

  10. Oh good grief get over it. It's a TV show. Watch don't watch, your choice.

  11. I've been a musician all my life and I think Glee is a blast. It's a fun-filled romp that brings gay to the people. I attended this concert here in Chicago and it was A number one entertainment, from beginning to end. Lighten up, amigos.

  12. 1,2,3 Chris Colfer fans will go crazy!

    Kevin, Chris is a charicature like so many flaming gay men before him but that's okay.

    What is interesting and I say this going on so many social media sites, is re fangurls, I never here them pissed off that Colfer is gay, its just assumed he is gay and they still fancy him.

    But with Matt Bomer, wow, talk about frothing at the mouths everything from 'I'm going to have to find a new guy to love now, to why is he gay?, to OMG nooo!' etc etc

    So question here is Colfer 'yay he is gay I soo fancy him' and I'm thinking 'like a fag hag?' but Bomer fangurls need to give each other pep talks on how to fantasize about him or act like bitches.

    I would love it if someone write a proper article about gay actors being Out and not some freak from Newsweek because the stuff going on now on blind item blogs-it's like every other gay blind is Bradley Cooper (they're guesses)-to tumblr or twitter with Matt Bomer fanatics and the crazy fan gurl obsession of Colfer, it would be a fascinating piece.

  13. The fact that the Dublin O2 Arena packed with people, screamed and cheered when two female actresses and two male actors (in character) kissed each other in celebration of their gay relationships is earth shattering. If you hate the show, or Kurt, simply turn it off and shut up. Why would even bother to click on this or to comment? Kurt is over the top in many ways, with his arrogance and superiority, but has a heart of gold. If you don't know this, you don't really watch the show. So, everybody lighten up and enjoy! (Colfer also has one of the best voices that I have ever heard)

  14. Predictions of a future homogeneous bland gay stereotype - more like Will Truman than Jack McFarland - are as ridiculous as someone predicting that heteros will be a similarly homogeneous bland straight stereotype. They don't exist and won't exist because human personalities are so diverse and because gay people range in age from early teens to late 90s.
    I'm not a Gleek but appreciate the positive ambassadors that the Glee cast have been on TV, on stage, on radio and in print media; it's hard to think of another show which has had the same impact.

  15. Mark (3rd post above) is mostly right. When there's no more resistance we will drop our pretensions, defenses and posturing, all of which will then become even more ridiculous than they already are. Two gay performers out there epitomise this: Matt Alber and Tom Goss. Tom has said in interviews that he wants to bring a sense of normalcy to gay life, and in his joyful music he does that. Matt, with an innovative and soaring cd called "Hide Nothing" does the same - both regular guys of an exceptional kind singing about love, both married to men. Already there's a whole world out there of such people. Not very sure if we're meeting them on line here though in such a frequently fractious atmosphere.

  16. To chime in.
    @Mark... you are dead wrong. You conflate Kurt's atypical gender expression as being some sort of oppositional identity. The hatred aimed at Kurt/Chris is all about his "effeminate" qualities. Modern gay men are so conformist about masculinity. Oppositional identity means to embrace what is not valued by the dominant culture...that would be "Queers," sex pigs, and the dudes at Treasure Island Media.

  17. @Mark,

    do you have research to back up the fact that ALL gay men are born liking guns, fighting, football and baseball and that it is somehow society that has forced some gays to feel a proclivity to things deemed feminine?

    When I read posts such as these I can't help but feel sad. What business is it of yours, mine, or anyone else's how anyone else "acts"?

    If someone is happy (a rare thing in this world) with who they are, regardless of how they came to the place, we should all be pleased for them.

    On a side note, Scandinavian countries have done a lot more research into gender sexual preference and there have been a lot of interesting studies about brain patterns, lobe activity, amygdala response to show that in many gay men there are internal (not social) responses that are similar to those of women.

  18. I'm sorry but I found this very tacky and not very gay-friendly. Firstly, the two actresses look nothing like genuine lesbians. Their kiss came across as if it's pandering to the sleazy straight guy fantasy for girl-girl action, with the girls wearing very little in the way of clothing.

    We gay men need to be very careful how lesbianism is promoted to the public. It is NOT about "two hot chicks" making out. Glee ought to be ashamed of itself for promoting a very sexist and counter-productive image of lesbians.

  19. What, pray tell, do "genuine lesbians" look like?

  20. Was there an earthquake going on in Dublin at the time that this video clip was shot?

    Posted by: peterparker | Jul 4, 2011 7:04:31 PM


  21. @Jason You should probably tell Ellen's wife to change her face/body then, because she doesn't seem to have heard that she's not allowed to look hot.

    Posted by: RyanD | Jul 4, 2011 10:15:27 PM


  22. @Jason, for someone whose every post talks about how much he hates stereotypes and works endlessly to educate the rest of us on how we've all been brainwashed by society, I can't believe you think there's a "look" for "genuine" lesbians.

    For those of you irritated by Colfer's flamboyance, the show provides a counter "type." Hint: it's his boyfriend.

    Enough straight Americans know enough gay people to realize that we're not all one big stereotype. If they don't, they're ignorant, isolated, bigoted, or all three and a TV show isn't going to make a damn bit of difference. That would be like saying any other minority group is identical. No rational, remotely intelligent person thinks that way.

  23. @Mark Oh Mark, you're so butch. Oh Mark, you're so straight acting. Oh Mark, you're such a stud. Feel better now? Good.

    Thanks for playing. We have a lovely departure gift for you.

  24. OMG, amazing , i have never see it

    Posted by: oilpaintings | Jul 4, 2011 11:37:32 PM


  25. sad that many gay men have rules about the effeminacy of other men.

    Colfer is a role model for his effeminacy as much as for his openness. I always admire men who've been able to hold onto their feminine characteristics....
