The expression there's an elephant in the room means an obvious truth that is being ignored. I think a pink elephant would appropriately apply to a gay person who is hiding his or her true self in plain sight.
Today there was an avalanche of gay speculation. Remember, it's just speculation. First was the news that Jake Gyllenhaal was gay, had been caught having sex with his bf in an SUV behind a chinese restaurant, and is going to have a baby with his partner. Holy Hot Homos! Where have I been?
Next came further speculation that Wentworth Miller had been seen out and about with TR Knight's ex boyfriend wearing matching flip flops. That's all the proof I need. Be still my pink heart.
Now all of this is probably super wishful thinking but it works for me. I'd love to see Chris Evans and Tom Brady going for a stroll in matching flip flops. That would be my Xanadu.
