The Gayest Thing(s) You'll See This Week

Okay - it's been a while since I've posted a "Gayest Thing" item. So, here we have two video clips that may or may not qualify. I'll let you decide.

First, I'm very happy to report that "Torchwood," the BBC's oh-so-gay-friendly Sci-Fi series is finally back with a 5 episode miniseries entitled "Children of Earth." Who cares what the plot is. Openly gay American actor John Barrowman stars as Captain Jack Harkness, an immortal time-traveller who heads up a secret British organization dedicated to saving England (and the world) from creatures, entities and beings who manage to slip through a rift in the time-space continuum which just happens to be located in Wales. Harkness is sort of an omni-sexual being whose past, present and future are all intertwined. Recently, Jack and Torchwood's "go-to" guy Ianto (pronounced "Yanto"), played by Gareth David-Lloyd, have become full-on lovers in the much-delayed and much-anticipated season 3 mini-series "Children of Earth"
Original "Queer as Folk" creator and "Doctor Who" rejuvenator, Russell Davies spun the show off from "Doctor Who" and in doing so, created television's first gay-friendly Sci-Fi show (and introduced U.S. audiences to gorgeous Mark Harmon-ish actor, Barrowman). Original, funny, smart and sexy, "Torchwood" is most defintely one of my favorite Sci-Fi shows.
Below is the trailer for the season three miniseries:

And just because, here (via) is a new mash-up video of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and Rick Astley's (go on - I dare you to tell me he isn't gay) "Never Gonna Give You Up." If this isn't gay, my name is Minnie Pearl!

More, anon.
