Holidays

Get Inspired For The HoliGAYS With These LGBTQ Icons!

For a couple of weeks now my partner and I have been stringing lights, putting up wreaths, hanging ornaments and stockings, and making our place feel as festive and ready for the holigays—you know, like the holidays but gayer. And what makes it the holigays? Well, the fact that everything is done with a little something extra—fabulousness.

Usually, I wait to find some inspiration from social media to be overcome with the spirit—but this year we got a head start—it’s the only thing that will make it feel like December in the 90 degree Southern California weather.

Still, we both like to sit on our couch, drinking hot chocolate with the fireplace playing on the T.V. as we swipe through the social media accounts of our favorite LGBTQ icons to see how they are making the holidays a gay ole time!

So here’s a little something to keep you going as you wrap those gifts, listen to Sia’s Everyday Is Christmas album, and dance around in those holiday jammies.

Happy Holigays!

 

Christmas AF.

This Bearded Daddy and His Dog Are Spreading Holiday Cheer

You know that Christmas movie you HAVE to watch in order for it to feel like the holidays? Mine are Love Actually, The Family Stone, Home Alone (1 & 2), How the Grinch Stole Christmas (the animated classic)—the list goes on and on! There’s nothing like curling up under a blanket or having these on in the background while you decorate for your queer Christmas.

Someone who I know shares this sentiment is Cliff who I recently came across on Instagram. Cliff posts cosplay photos depicting different movies with his partner in crime Roxie—did I mention Roxie is Cliff’s dog? A Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to be exact—a cute furry friend that will make your heart grow three sizes not just during the holidays but all year around.

Cliff is a handsome bearded redhead that has paid homage to easily over 100 films with his adorable photo shoots. Just look these holiday shots of the #gayginger and his #puppyofinstagram that will get in the holiday spirit!

 

I said, "next," dammit, this is not the DMV. #badsanta #roxierockstar #asrequested by @cavaliersteffi

I mean—Come ON! You can’t resist looking at Roxie’s puppy dog eyes and not want to keep scrolling for more cuteness—and Cliff’s pretty easy on the eyes himself! If you’re as big a movie nut these two will definitely brighten up your day!

In case you’re not convinced—here are some of my favorites from @CliffandRoxie.

 

Roxie loves her new groomer Edward. Wanna play paper, rock, scissors again? #edwardscissorhands #timburton #roxierockstar

I could go on—but I’ll let you check it out for yourself! Oh—and they take requests! So send Cliff some of your favorite flix and maybe you will see Roxie step into the role of a lifetime! Do I hear Miracle on 34th StreetMean Girls? Sister Act? The GraduateHocus Pocus? Bonnie and Clyde? Chicago? Annie Hall? Okay--I'll stop now.

I can’t wait to see what this cinefile and his four-legged best friend come up with next!

Christmas Beards Will Get You Into the Holiday Spirit

Just in time for the holidays—Christmas beards are spreading some holiday cheer—yes, you heard right. Christmas BEARDS! ‘Tis the season to be scruffy!

Instead of throwing those ugly sweater parties, now you’ll be able to decorate that facial hair that you grew out during No Shave November and make a statement with these beardaments this holiday season. Remember the 12 Beards of Christmas? Well now here's a chance for you to have your own! You’ll be ready to deck those halls with those balls hanging from your face.

Beardaments sells a set of 12 festive beard ornaments that immediately turns your beard into a Christmas miracle! Each one has a clip that attaches and joyfully dangles from your beard. Perfect stocking stuffer for that furry man in your life! Or maybe for that white elephant gift exchange you still haven’t planned for!

Will this catch on? Will it be like the trend of dying beards bright colors?

It doesn’t matter! We love BEARDS and we want to see more of them! What a great way to celebrate the holidays! Woof!
