Blind Item #8

Originally it was supposed to be a full on professional photographer situation for the family photos but the foreign born A- list actress was talked out of it. She wasn't talked out of giving away presents which were freebies she had been given and products she sells with her name on it from her home country.

She's got delusions that she's the one that married a royal!

Village Guru said...

@Vita, she did marry a royal: Queen Nick.

Is it still PC to call them queens?

Sometimes I wonder if you really believe your own hype smdh

hunter said...

Yes you can still call them queens but Nick is hardly what I would call a queen.

Adam Lambert - now THERE is a queen. Nick Jonas? Hardly.

Harry Styles? Definitely a bit queeny. Full on. Nick Jonas? Not so much.

Jared Leto? Yeah actually - bit of a queen. Don't need to be gay to be a queen.

So yes, you can call people queens, I just wouldn't consider Nick Jonas a good fit.

@hunter, I agree with your last sentence, but I didn't have a better word. Besides, we don't know his persona when he's around other gays. People do act differently depending upon circumstances.

I always wondered if it came from drama queen. What about flamer?

Village Guru said...

@Brayson, you drove me to ask my best friend Google!

The first known use of "queen" to describe homosexuals in literature was penned by Dante (Purgatoria 26:78), in the early 14th century AD.[15]

An early example of this usage of the word "queen" in modern mainstream literature occurs in the 1933 novel The Young and the Evil by Charles Henri Ford and Parker Tyler: "While waiting Karel wet his hair and put his handkerchief smeared with mascara behind a pipe. You still look like a queen Frederick said..."[16]

and flamer/flaming:

late 14c., "flame-like in appearance;" c. 1400, "on fire," present-participle adjective from flame (v.). Meaning "of bright or gaudy colors" is from mid-15c. As an intensifying adjective, late 19c. Meaning "glaringly homosexual" is homosexual slang, 1970s (along with flamer (n.) "conspicuously homosexual man"); but flamer "glaringly conspicuous person or thing" (1809) and flaming "glaringly conspicuous" (1781) are much earlier in a general sense, both originally with reference to "wenches." Related: Flamingly.

Wikipedia has a large list of LGBT slang. Very interesting what one can learn if they aren't too careful!
