So, I decided to write about professions, well gay professions. Okay, not really, but I feel like there are five professions that people automatically assume that you are gay. In my own personal experience, in the most random of ways, I have worked in or alongside these professions. Originally I was going to title this post, the 5 gayest professions ever, until I realized that a lot of straight men work in these professions. So, here are my Gayest no so gay jobs.
Publicly out Roberto Bolle, for American Ballet Theatre.
"I'm a ballet dancer." Or just dancers in general. When we hear that, we think, "Oh god, he is poor. Or wow, that's gay; prancing around." As there are many gay ballet dancers, there are just as many straight ballet dancers. In fact, the majority of male ballet dancers I have met are straight. I mean you kind of have to be in order to play Prince Charming. As athletic as dance is the artistic view of a ballerina is thrust onto most male dancers. Note that half of the principal dancers of New York City Ballet are married to each other.
Straight hair stylist, I wish he was gay, Frenchman, Teddy Charles
They get a really bad wrap for being jegging wearing, make up wearing, lip gloss smacking homos: THE HAIR STYLIST. For as many gay men do hair, so do straight men. In fact, most of the leading hair stylists in the world are straight men. They have this very cool, tatted up, classy, fashionable hipster vibe. Super sexy.
Gay Fashion Editor and Blogger Bryan Boy
When we hear a man says he works in fashion we think, purse carrying, stiletto stomping, Olsen sisters big sunglasses, and a Starbucks. Those are just the ones who work at Forever 21, just kidding. As effeminate as fashionistos can be, there are tons of straight men in fashion: top designers, stylists, and writers, all straight men. We just like to picture everyone that works in fashion as flaming homos.
Interior designers and architects seem to always get wrapped up into the same category. Neither one is specifically gay, but because of HGTV and other DIY networks, it seems that the representation of this profession is gay.
Okay, so the final one is being a model. And unfortunately, I feel like gays might have tainted this profession. As male models are ridiculously good looking, or some might say, "They are to hot to be straight." Unfortunately, it seems that every gay boy is a "model" even if they are 5'3", because someone took a photo of them in their underwear, they are a model.
