From Jann Wenner’s tangled id and the camera of Robert Trachtenberg comes this portrait in Rolling Stone of young “Glee” star Chris Colfer surrounded by menacing homosexuals. How to say? Ah ha, this is how to say: “Ah, yes, the life cycle of the gay man, as the fresh-faced, impressionable polyp is transformed by the greasy, feral rut into his inevitably predatory leather daddy medusa form…. Because, of course, having a train run on you by hot guys in leather is NO ONE’S idea of a good time.” (via)
