Age Gaps Are For Sissies
When British actor and comedian Stephen Fry, 57, announced his engagement to fellow comedian Elliot Spence, 30 years his junior, the ageist outcry propelled the Daily Beast to run a story called “Freaking Out About Age Gaps in Gay Relationships Is Homophobic”
While the outcry was real, it was good to see the double-standard dutifully rebuke. Now that is not to say when it comes navigating the “May-to-December” romance regardless of the genders involved, sometimes the struggle is real. As shown above by comic Sam Pancake along with Brian Jordan Alvarez, sometimes the struggle is just a laughing matter …
Stephen Fry and Elliot Spence are not the only high profile “May to Decemeber” gay couples. Shown above are Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black, Cheyenne Jackson and Jason Landau, plus Nate Berkus and Jeremiah-Brent.
When Bradley Cooper, now 40, started dating the now 23-year-old model Suki Waterhouse, the Daily Mirror called them “the sweetest celebrity couple ever” and repeated the old adage that “age is but a number.” Sure, a 30-year age difference is nothing to sneeze at and, like any couple with that size gap, Fry and Spencer will have to do some extra work to make their lives coalesce across their generational divide. But that’s their business as consenting adults and not anyone else’s.
They are in addition to the likes of Matt Bomer and Simon Halls, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Justin Mikita, Calvin Klein and Nick Gruber. I could go on and on … but since this is GayPornBlog and not “GayAARP,” time for some “May to December” fucking.
