I watched the ball drop on CNN this year. I thought the whole thing was pretty gay. So, seeing a gay couple kiss right after midnight was in line with the rest of their programming that night, in my opinion. Of course, I didn't even think people would lose their shit over a kiss. I forget the times we live in.

Anyway. Happy New Year!

@borghal In the article, there's a Twitter post that says something like "a gay interracial couple is not representative of NYC" and I'm like "have you been to NYC?!"


@MSPAuthor That's what I thought, too! Though I haven't been to NYC myself, I've only seen what they show on TV, so maybe... I've been programmed? ????

@borghal We watched it too. It’s been like that since years. My companion and I often joke about that CNN is basically a gay network considering how many #LGBTQIA people working for/with them. It’s just an observation. There’s nothing wrong or right about it.



@boeckli We were always fans of Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve, but this year I didn't have an antenna handy, and I didn't find it streaming quickly, while CNN's was available on Max. So we watched that. I feel like we will continue to watch it as long as it continues to be this gay ????

@borghal You probably could count on that!
