Me and Famous People

I met a bunch of famous people on the Gay Event Circuit last month. Would you like to see pictures of me standing near them?

No?

Well, screw you! I'm showing you anyway!

Ready?

That first picture is of Dianna Agron (Glee), a bunch of politicians and I on the red carpet at the GLAAD Media Awards. I'm the regular person on the right with the sunburn and chapped lips.

Oh, you're gonna LOVE this next one!

There I am with American comedian, writer, actress, singer and musician Sarah Silverman at the San Francisco Gay Pride Parade. As you can see from the picture of Sarah and I above, we are very close friends now. That's me in the dark shirt and rainbow peace symbol necklace. I am standing next to Sarah. Sarah Silverman.

And finally, that picture just above this text is me with Dot Jones, another star of the hit television show Glee, which airs on a television channel that many people watch. She is holding my left hand while my right hand holds an apple and a bottle of water. I am wearing the same dark shirt I was wearing when I stood right next to American comedian, writer, actress, singer and musician Sarah Silverman.

And that's it!

That's all the pictures I have of me and famous people from last month.

Oh wait, I have an interesting and good story about me talking to a famous person that you are sure to like a lot.

I was talking to Cleve Jones, creator of the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt who was portrayed by Emile Hirsch in the movie Milk, in the Very Important Person tent after the San Francisco Gay Pride Parade and this is an actual conversation we shared with one another.

Me: So, what do you do for a living?

Cleve Jones: Me?

Me: Yeah.

Cleve Jones: What do I do for a living?

Me: Yeah. You know, for a job.

Cleve Jones: Well, I'm a famous homosexual.

Me: Que?

Cleve Jones: A famous homosexual.

Me: Oh.

Silence.

Me: So, like, how many years of grad school does that require?
