Hey Ian,

I am an avid viewer of American Idol, and I am also analyzing the show this season for a course on Gender and Pop Culture that I'm taking. I'm I'm looking at AI for gender issues and queer representation. I hate how sexual minorities, if they are even showed (which is rarely the case), are always portrayed as something to make fun of.

I feel like the producers of American Idol used you to perpetuate gay stereotypes, and I admire you for having the guts to actually go audition (something I'm still trying to work up the nerve to do).

If you're at all interested, my blog is and it would be really cool if you responded to my post about you.

YOU ARE FABULOUS, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
