This curly-haired cutie became every girl in America’s teenage dream when the former Starkid first appeared on the Dalton Academy Staircase in season two of Fox’s hit musical comedy “Glee.” Immediately introduced to the world as an out-and-proud gay student, Blaine Anderson took the initiative to tell fan favorite character Kurt Hummel, played by Chris Colfer, to stand up to the bullies at his school. Now, two seasons, a few steamy make-out seasons and lovable Christmas duets later, ‘Klaine’ has became one of the most controversial and groundbreaking couples on live television, which of course, brought its own share of sexuality rumors for the 26-year-old musician. While Criss and his character Blaine have many similar qualities , such as a sweet personality and the tendency to knock any Katy Perry number out of the park, Criss has publicly identified himself as a straight male, but with a respectable reluctance.
“I was inadvertently raised in the ‘gay community.’ I had straight parents, but I spent massive amounts of time at a very early age with gay, theatre-hopeful-thirty somethings,” the San Francisco native says in an interview with Vanity Fair. “And those were the people I spent time with early on, so my whole perception of “sexuality” just wasn’t there. It just was”. Well, there you go fangirls that obsess over Criss’ sexuality every half-second. Not only is his view on sexuality modern and inspiring, it is is a step in the right direction for the way the world needs to start seeing each other for who they truly are. Bravo. (x)
