    Cautiously optimistic about this, but please God – don’t let it be Brian Kinney/Rage. The whole comic book premiere that QAF did (“Somewhere in Gayopolis a twink is in trouble!”) made me wanna puke.

    I hated Rage and how unrealistic its success was. If they stay true to the fact that being gay was just one small part of what made up the lead character they’ll I have a winner. I wanna see Chemo Chick more, to be honest…
