What Britney Spears Taught an Entire Gay Generation

Drag queens at Wet & Wild have perfected Britney.

Each week Easy Target alerts you of potential advances or threats to gaykind from the forces of the news media, politics, and popular culture — the front lines of the culture wars — in San Francisco and beyond. This week, it's all Britney, bitch! And it's all dangerous.

I wasn't always a Britney Spears fan, but then again, I wasn't always openly gay. Despite the fact that she has never marched for us like Gaga, or praised our lifestyle like Madonna, Britney has been an influence to sexually confused young boys all over the world since the turn of the century.

Part of the Britney allure is how she keeps us aroused without ever really making us climax. And oops… with the announcement this week that her performance on Sunday will, indeed, not take place outdoors in the Castro but inside the Bill Graham Auditorium, well… she did it again.
