Perhaps Unsurprisingly, 2017’s Newest Gay Icon Is Pennywise The Clown From “It”

2017 has been the year of bizarre gay icons, ranging from the Babadook

happy pride month from queer icon the babadook

…to the sassy Brazilian alligator-slash-witch Cuca.

gay twitter: babadook is the new gay icon!!!

three days later:

But gird your loins, because we’ve got a new queer icon on our hands — Pennywise the clown from It. He’s so terrifying, so gay, he literally will scare you straight (JK, that’s not possible).


New Line

Twitter user @starkrhodey posited the claim that Pennywise is an LGBT ally…

…which SEEMINGLY led a Republican Twitter user to freak out at the claim. You know how the saying goes — where there’s smoke, there’s fire. And by fire, I mean a gay-friendly murderous clown.

A REPUBLICAN REALLY CAME INTO MY DMS BECAUSE I SHITPOSTED A PENNYWISE IS AN LGBT ALLY EDIT DNSNSND

They were shook.

PENNYWISE. DID. THAT.

But upon further investigation, it would seem Pennywise’s reign as a queer icon has actually been a long time in the making.

He might not be the gay icon we need…

me: hi-
stan twitter: im gonna fuck the IT clown

…but he’s the one we deserve.

his name is pennywise you uncultured swine at least i know the name of the clown's dick im boutta succ https://t.co/cA6yFEKHrt

(Although, to be fair, there are dissenters. And this is a valid argument!)

pennywise is a homophobe because he ate me, a gay, and it was highly inconvenient

It was only a matter of time before Pennywise started interacting with OTHER LGBT icons.

how long before y'all ship the babadook and pennywise as gay icons

Yeah, that was fast.

Pennywise the Dancing Clown and the Babadook are gay and in a committed relationship. #LoveWins

Maybe a little too fast! But who am I to judge.

not to pit gay men against each other but pennywise has done more foe the lgbt community than the babadook

Anyway, Pennywise…congrats on being an LGBT icon.


E!
