For those of you who miss the good old days of Baywatch, you’re in luck because John Oliver has brought Gaywatch to this world!
That’s right, Oliver has set out to keep us updated on all of those who are interested in gay marriage. The first episode of Gaywatch takes us to France. You might think this would be the best place for gays. Land of amour and a place where they just passed gay marriage. Sounds great! But wait. Those french people seem to have a real problem with love. Which is ironic given that the French are supposed to be some of the great lovers of the world. Maybe they’ve lost their finesse, their panache. Maybe they’re just ticked off that no one really likes them. Either way, it’s a big disappointment.
Those French are really serious about protesting gay marriage though. So serious that they decided to out gay the gays. They protested in bright pink overalls. Very intimidating…to no one.
Things are unfortunately not looking good for gays in Russia where they made the promotion of homosexuality a crime. But the surprise of the week (aka not a surprise) is that the Vatican has a big, “gay lobby.” As Oliver puts it, “The whole building is basically a Liberace fever dream.”
John Oliver is doing a good job in Jon Stewart’s absence and this video can’t be missed!
