In Honor of Levi Poulter
Whenever I see a gay kiss between two models, as opposed to actors, I get excited and want to learn or about the models. You can only imagine how I reacted to Levi Poulter. The first thing I want to know is the model’s sexual orientation. I know that that sounds trivial, but it’s inspiring to see akiss another man. It shows that a kiss is just a kiss and that a man is capable of being with another man without “turning gay.” When a gay man kisses another man, I see a role model. On my tumblr page, I constantly posted pictures of men kissing in hopes to show that there is nothing wrong with the concept.
It turned out that Levi Poulter is in fact gay. Or should I say Bisexual. According to an interview on a Swedish blog called “QX,” Levi was asked of his sexual orientation. As a porn star, he answered, “Bisexual, I have sex with both gay and straight guys…”(He is gay, for all of you curious folks). I think that caught my attention the most. I like it when people make a joke about their sexual orientation. In my opinion, it is very important aspect of one’s life, but it isn’t the only defining quality of the LGBTQIA community. In another interview on the blog “Gay Like Me,” he gives his views on marriage equality. He brings up a great point. He doesn’t feel the need to get married, he feels the need to have equality.
“I think the issue is equal rights. I don’t feel the need to get married as much as I feel the need for all people to be treated equally and have the same medical and governmental rights. If the only way to see that happen is to get married, then yes, I would.”
