Growing Pains (The Gay Kind)

0

Kids have many gay role models to choose from these days.

But very few gay kid role models.

Well, that all changes with this Thursday’s premiere of Champions, a new sitcom from Mindy Kaling. The story focuses on two brothers, one of whom gets surprised with a 15-year-old gay son he never knew he had and now has to raise in their bachelor pad.

Boom. Glittered mic drop.

J.J. Totah (above, center) plays the 15-year-old and much like his character on Glee, he’s one flamboyant queen. It’s going to be a tough sell for people who like their gays a little less nelly, but we for one applaud this bold endeavor and think it’s fantastic that a child can be himself.

In times like these, we’ll take flamin’ over Cheetos any day.
