From Mike Jensen of AfterElton.com:
We're pleased to announce that voting is now open for the second annual AfterElton.com Hot 100 List! Will last year's winner Jake Gyllenhaal repeat or will an out, gay man such as Neil Patrick Harris, T.R. Knight or John Barrowman nab the top slot?
We think the existence of such a list is downright revolutionary. After all, there are plenty of lists of beautiful people compiled by and for straight people. But the AfterElton.com Hot 100 is all about gay and bisexual men telling the world which men we think are sexy.
Voting is open until May 16th and the winners will be revealed on June 2.
Let the voting begin!
AfterElton.com is pleased to announce that the voting is now open for our second annual Hot 100, a list of the world’s hottest men, chosen by the gay and bisexual male readers of this site.
Here at AfterElton.com, we think the existence of such a list is downright revolutionary. After all, there are plenty of lists of beautiful people compiled by and for straight people. But the AfterElton.com Hot 100 is all about gay and bisexual men telling the world which men we think are sexy.
And tell the world we will! Last year’s list was AfterElton.com’s most popular feature ever, with thousands of votes cast. When the results were announced, they were picked up all over the world, on local television stations and on national news outlets.
AfterElton.com also received personal reactions from some of the men on the list, including Anderson Cooper, John Barrowman, John Amaechi, and Cheyenne Jackson. "I'm flattered to be on the list,” Cooper told us. “Clearly, they have not seen my pale, skinny chicken legs.”
What does it mean to be hot to a gay or bisexual guy? It’s different for every guy, of course. For some, it’s all about a killer smile and a rockin’ bod. For others, it’s about talent, passion, intelligence, or wit (as well as a rockin’ bod!).
For some gay and bisexual men, the very hottest guys of all are those who are out and proud. For others, an attractive straight man will do just fine!
The beauty of the AfterElton.com Hot 100 is that you, the reader, get to decide exactly what qualifies as hot.
(And women and straight men? While we appreciate your support of AfterElton.com, we ask you to refrain from voting in this survey. After all, the whole point of the AfterElton.com Hot 100 is to tell the world who we gay and bisexual men think are sexy! )
What will the results of this year’s list show? Last year’s list was dominated by actors and straight men — though often gay-supportive straight men who have played gay roles. But a lot has changed between then and now, with a number of gay men have coming out in just the last year. Meanwhile, the ranks of attractive male politicians, athletes, activists, and other celebrities are always growing.
Who will return from last year’s list? What fresh new faces will be joining them?
