I remember NY’s Pride March in 1977 so well, because we, too were caught up in the Anita Bryant mess and the orange juice boycott. I also graduated from college that spring, with my family and my boyfriend by my side (although we used the term ‘lover’ then – before partner was in the air, and long before husband was even a dream). It still wasn’t easy being gay, but it was a moment of political awakening and feeling our muscles as a movement.
As with all these holiday stories, this one dips into Nick and Carter’s life, reminding us that they are, alas, fantasies, not real; because they are simply too good, too broad-minded, too generous, too much in love, and too rich. Nick and Carter are an ideal, gay superheroes who suffer in spite of their great wealth. They never abuse their power and never miss a chance to do some lesbian or gay guy a favor. I really don’t think there’s a billionaire out there (gay or straight) who comes close to being what Mr. Butterfield has created with these two amazing men.
This just makes them more precious to me. At this moment in our history as gay Americans, we see all around us the failure of American “ideals,” because the truth is, notions of liberty and equality have never been fully embraced in our country – not even by LGBT people. We need to be better.
We need to be more like Nick and Carter. We need to make that fantasy real.
