“Girl these stilettos are killing me!”
It’s a trend that’s happening all over. You might not be a part of it, but make no mistake, this is a movement this isn’t going away any time soon. It’s the growing trend of of the gay community deciding to rock a pair of heels to the club, instead of the usual go-to, Adidas or DC Shoes high tops. People are happy when they feel good, and even happier when they look and feel fabulous in a pair of heels.
There will be judgement. There always has been, and probably always will be. Such is life.
The real question is, how does that five inch Jimmy Choo red glossed heel feel when you walk in the door and stopped the entire room and turned heads. It’s call the Broke Neck Effect. As soon as people see the fabulous-ness swerve in the door, everyone will lose control of their joints and spill their cocktails because they will be focused on you!
If you want to blend in and be nonchalant, don’t! If you want to be yourself and make a statement being yourself, then you’re in the money! At the end of the day, what matter is how you feel and what you want to do. this is about your life and happiness. If what makes you happy is a t-shirt, jeans, sunglasses and Manolo Blahniks, then do it!
The rise in gay men wearing heels out and about will continue. They may not trying to be a drag queen or other themed ensemble, but they are doing what they like and feel comfortable in. The verdict is in, if you like it, then do it! What puts a smile on people’s faces is undoubtedly the best thing. Regardless of what any opposition may say. Keep it moving and hold your head high. Remember, you are being you and there’s nothing wrong with that at all.
