    Good for him.

    Clearly the whole thing was pre-planned and staged (I don’t buy that this was spontaneuos for 1 second) but still great news.

    I wish him continued success in his acting career.

    He might want to think about changiong his Twitter profile, which reads: “As comfortable in the VIP section as he is in the ring, Darren Young’s life revolves around three things — money, women and wrestling.”

    He seems like he’s gung-ho to be an outspoken advocate which is awesome. Love it when the smart, hot guys start showing up on tv saying intelligent, positive things like John Roberts, John Amaechi and Dan Savage, and the cute allies like Brendan Ayanbadejo. I’m excited to see where he goes from here.

    Last night on the E! Channel they had their “news” show with host Giuliana Rancic. When she reported on it, she said, “We’ll have more on Darren Young’s confession.”

    Here’s the definition of the word “confession”:
    1. A formal statement admitting that one is guilty of a crime.
    2. An admission or acknowledgement that one has done something that one is ashamed or embarrassed about.

    Since neither definition applies to Darren Young, why did Giuliana uses the word “confession”?

    HMMM,

    Giuliana Rancic is a pig.

    As for Darren Young being a ‘spokesperson’, I hope not. He should stay far away from the gay community and its demands and stereotypes.

    He was on the TODAY show this morning and sounded like he is ready to step into the role as advocate and coach for young gay kids out there. He sounds great!

    Thank GOODNESS he’s so hot! I can only imagine the damage that would have been done to our community if he was ugly, or HORRORS, fat! Some of you guys are pathetic.

    My first question when I heard this was: Is this the “wrestler” character talking or the actor talking?
    Will the character continue to be a womanizer while the actor goes home to his boyfriend behind the scenes? Or is he developing a gay story line in this interview that the producers chose for him and then going on the road with a girl in every port?
    It’s confusing because the WWE is not wrestling, the sport, but “wrestling” as a scripted form of entertainment with fictional characters participating.

    @Gregv

    It was him talking. The story lines can and often do change radically for seemingly no reason at all. Some will have a gimmick and then a few weeks later they’re doing something else.

    I just watchd the Matt Lauer interview with “Fred Rosser who plays Datren Young,” so I guess that partially answers my question. The next question is where the producers go with the “Darren Young” storyline.
    He represented well in the interview. He also said he was inspired by Jason Collins and sought his advice last night. Each famous person and each ordinary person who comes out adds to the snowball effect as others, who didn’t want to be the first, follow. It’s one reason things get better and better.
    The only “bad” thing is that now I’ll probably tune in to the WWE!

    Darren Young is not only a WWE Superstar but Gay and Smokin Hot. For those of you who don’t watch WWE, you should see whats under that shirt! Loved the way “The Irish Guy” from TMZ, Peter O’Riordan, handled the interview. I think that both of them are as beautiful on the inside as they both sure are on the outside. Welcome Out Darren!!!

    MateoM:

    I am not Rick or Jason and I didn’t post anything above. But I’ll tell you this. Darren Young is a gay person and from what I see, there is a lot to like about him. He is a much more positive influence on the world and much more positive role model for gay boys than the self-debased drag queens and drug-addled circuit boys that get promoted on this site so regularly.

    Gay boys should be taught that they will grow up to be men, not clowns, not freakish performance acts, not soulless bodies doomed to pursue loveless sex with strangers, and not wannabe ladies. They should be taught that are worthy of respect, that they should respect themselves and others and always conduct themselves with dignity.

    Rick/Jason/Brian: I see FrankB is your new alias too. Hysterical that you accidentally posted under a different username to respond. So sad and pathetic.

  15. Adam says

    I’ll believe it if he’s still gay after he retires. I can’t help but think this is just the beginning act of one of those pro-wrestling “soap-operas”.

  16. USC Trojans Fan says

    Femme gay me are just as worthy and just as prominent and loved in our LGBT community as others. Rick/Frank B are all trolls and the same person with various handles. Ignore the troll. The greater, and well adjusted LGBT community is beyond accepting of our femme gay brothers in the community.

    There’s a lot of truth in this.

    A WHOLE lot of truth and wisdom in what FRANKB posted below:

    “Gay boys should be taught that they will grow up to be men, not clowns, not freakish performance acts, not soulless bodies doomed to pursue loveless sex with strangers, and not wannabe ladies. They should be taught that are worthy of respect, that they should respect themselves and others and always conduct themselves with dignity.”
