what i love about Adam Rippon's harness look is that it unlocks a queer eroticism that I don't think is often part of the Oscars.

Adam Rippon’s Oscar tux kinda reminds me of this one guy I knew who would get all “try not to be *shocked* by my edginess” at me with his leather bar garb and I was just like dude Look at me I wear more leather than that on a casual work day.

I don’t know if I’m man enough to survive BOTH Adam Rippon’s harness AND Armie Hammer’s velvet maroon tuxedo.

How pissed is Kevin Spacey that he's not allowed in Hollywood the year Adam Rippon is lingering in the Oscars men's bathroom.
