I got an A for my wrestling unit in gym during junior high (and a C overall for the class), mainly because I was huge and had a knack for memorizing all-fours positions. I lost when duking it out with Tony Cicero, but at least I lost with the correct form.
That said, using West Side Story as a guide works, too! Video of Noah Galvin on The Real O'Neals to follow ...
Out corners coverguy Colton Haynes on every topic you'd wish for, including...
When I came out, Noah tweeted, ‘Welcome to the family,’ and ‘So proud of you.’ I have the tweets saved on my phone. Then, all of a sudden, I’m the worst, I’m a terrible person, and I’m a shame of the gay community. I think just having enough nerve and guts to come out in any way is a lot. It was really an emotional thing for me. And for that to be discredited by someone who has never met me was upsetting. He has no idea what I’ve been through. And I can’t sit here and have a conversation about Noah because I don’t know him either.”
Those XY Photos His Lawyers Tried to Bury
I looked like I was fucking gay-bashing. Like I hated myself or I hated the gays, which was never the intention at all. I was just young and trying to make it in this town and doing what these people were telling me to do.
And more. Read here for his thoughtful interview.
When Noah Galvin opened his mouth to Vulture in a Q&A posted this past week, the main problem was he simply never shut it, riffing on his beliefs regarding the proper way to come out (Colton Haynes didn't pass muster), the right way to play a gay character on TV (Eric Stonestreet flunked) and even how not to use one's power in Hollywood (a remark about Bryan Singer and “little boys” was removed from the piece after his lawyers caught wind of it).
While some of what Galvin said had merit, the overall tone of his remarks reeked of a regrettable smugness and a youthful disregard for how his words might affect other people—including his own co-stars.
To his credit—and no thanks to the decent number of gay fans who unhelpfully cheered him on, Galvin apologized:
Now comes word that Galvin's show The Real O'Neals (a labor of love for many, including activist Dan Savage)—which is low-rated and was barely renewed—may be canceled after all. If it seems harsh to punish a whole show (and its many fans) thanks to the poorly considered comments of its star, THR reports that this interview shocked the network (it was reportedly set up by Galvin's publicist without their knowledge) but that he had previously been taken to the woodshed for issues of “ego and entitlement.”
Or they just want to reconsider saving a struggling show.
Galvin quickly apologized for his "brazen and hurtful comments" on Twitter, but how all of this bad press affects the low-rated bubble series—which, after an "abusive" waiting period (Galvin's word), was renewed by the network May 12—remains to be seen. As the controversy raged, the specter of a reduced episode order arose at ABC, according to one source. An executive producer who had spent four years getting the series on the air was "begging the network not to take action," says this source. (Reps for ABC declined comment on the situation.)
It's a terribly hard lesson for a 22-year-old neophyte actor to learn; I'm sure he's mortified, especially that he may be costing the show's creatives and crew their jobs.
One unfortunate note I can add to this story:
Galvin graciously appeared at TrevorLIVE NY on June 13. A friend of mine assisted him that evening, and while I'm sure everything was dreary for the guy considering the Vulture piece had just hit days before, his publicist wasn't winning him any new friends—she flatly refused to let my friend get a picture with Noah (all the attendees happily pose for pictures with their helpers) and I'm told she also refused to let Galvin pose with the person to whom he handed an award. Really? That's the point of using stars at charity events. Also, she told Galvin he wasn't allowed to drink.
I'm sure that a lot of the issues he's had are of his own making—and I hope he will figure things out, because people do deserve second chances—but when THR is calling out your publicist by name, as it did, and when your publicist is alienating admirers at charity events, it's probably time to get a new one.
Noah Galvin apologizes to Bryan Singer, Colton Haynes; Haynes does not accept:
One man's story of being closeted in the '60s, coming out in the '70s ... and finding acceptance and love.
Lea DeLaria proposes dropping LGBTQI (etc.) in favor of simply “queer.” Or do you despise that word?
TINY HANDS, BIG DEBTS: 100s of lawsuits claim Donald Trump is delinquent in paying monies due.
I'm not gonna slam The Real O'Neals star Noah Galvin for his at-times unfortunate, at-times excitingly candid interview with Vulture, in which I think he sounds too sure of himself by a factor of four, but I do think some of what he says is a bit misguided.
First off, I like that he's honest and has positions. He admires Dan Savage and I think that Savage's outspokenness is rubbing off:
I love him a lot. He's the smartest gay man you'll ever meet in your life. He's the most articulate. The thing about Dan is he is primed for combat at all times. Like, ready to throw down. And not only ready to throw down, but ready to win whatever debate. And he will.
He's also to be admired for being a 22-year-old who is out and proud, and who recognizes the impact of being out:
