Salice Rose Awkwardly Introducing Her Girlfriend In A Video Is One Of The Most Endearing Things On The Internet

YouTuber and poderosa extraordinaire Salice Rose just gave the Rose Family a very vulnerable inside look at her love life, and fans are freaking. Completely out of the blue, Salice posted a video to her Twitter account with the caption, “The wait is over. I’m shaking I’m so nervous. You guys…..MEET MY GIRLFRIEND!”

Girl, we had no idea we were waiting for this and the Rose family loves seeing Salice be the most awkward she has ever been.

At first, we just see Salice in a trench coat in a closet confessing how nervous she is to introduce us to her.

“I’ve never posted someone I was with in my life on social media… This is a very, very big step of me to do, but I feel like you guys deserve that part of me,” she opens up in the video. She tells us that she loves us at least six times during what is obviously a very brave and nerve-wracking moment for the star.

Then, Salice has a wardrobe change and introduces her bae!

Salice just announced that her fanbase is officially known as “The Rose Family,” and everyone has their own reaction. Speaking on behalf of all singles is @torixgiselle who laments, “the world really is ending if salice is showing off her bae ????????”

Bae is so nervous she forgets to give us her name.

According to her brand new YouTube channel, already at 6,350 subscribers, she goes by Brilynn Ford. “I’m scared. I hope you guys trust me enough to accept this part of my life into your life and come on this journey with me and with us,” Salice tells us.

Brilynn is promising to publicly prank Salice, and she’s ready for it.

Salice tells us that Brilynn is very gullible and gets surprised so easily. Salice thinks she’ll be easy bait, but we’re not buying it.

The two are just dating right now, but Brilynn wants to lock Salice down.

When the camera holder asks them to talk more about their personal life and less about franks, Salice makes this face. Brilynn says, “She’s so anti-dating. I can’t even say we’re dating. I don’t even know what we’re doing right now.”

Salice says, “F*** it, I’m down,” and Brilynn gets SO excited. “We’re dating?!” Brilynn asks. “Noooo, yes, we’re dating but we’re not together.”

They’ve known each other for three years and just recently started dating.

They would talk a couple of times a year like no time had passed, and just recently, it just happened. Salice tells us that if they were to ever “get together,” we would know about it and they would “film the whole thing.”

“Everything we do we’re going to do on camera now.”

Brilynn keeps trying to go in to kiss Salice and she gets so awkward. This is obviously love, y’all. After Salice left the room, Brilynn turns to us to reveal it all: “Now that she’s gone, I can tell you guys that we’re actually dating. She’s just in denial.”

Salice shouts, “That is not a fact.” Brilynn is like, “I didn’t know that she could hear me. It’s definitely a fact okay.”

Salice might be afraid of committing to the title but has the cojones to declare her likeship of Brilynn to the world.

Fans are coming in with the truth like @judycabrera_ saying, “She’s dope like her personality alittle awkward but you guys will get better.”

@0kayVania speaks for the rest of us when she says, “my heart is filled with warmth. my happiness for you is so huge, you deserve everything. i’m glad you are able to feel comfortable sharing these news and i wish you nothing but the best.”

Felicidades, Salice! We ship this awkward baby love.

Queer People Are Shouting Their Gratitude For Naya Rivera’s Trailblazing Character Santana Lopez

There are few queer characters the people can point to in the past as being someone that changed their lives. Santana Lopez, Naya Rivera’s character on “Glee,” is one of them. Even if you’ve never watched “Glee,” Rivera’s character touched you because of how that representation is so important and empowering.

Naya Rivera’s place in LGBTQ+ media representation will be her long-lasting legacy.

Rivera brought us Santana Lopez, a queer Latina navigating the world of high school in a small town. For many, this kind of representation was so rare and often poorly done that Rivera’s command of the role was impactful. You didn’t have to be an avid viewer of the show to understand and appreciate the magnitude of Santana Lopez.

Rivera brought our experience directly to the mainstream and forced our own classmates to think about the way they saw queer people.

Rivera’s ability to capture the awkwardness and terror of being a closeted queer student in high school still resonates. It is a piece of nostalgia that is so deeply ingrained in queer people that it’s hard not to be emotional about Rivera’s sudden and tragic death.

Who can forget the moment Santana used “Landslide” to tell Brittany that she loved her.

The emotion of a love that is not easy to confess and live authentically is real. Ask any queer person you know about coming to terms with her sexuality in high school and you will hear about the fear and excitement. You will hear about the strategic allyships that epitomize the constant battle between being open and staying safe.

Rivera was more than an actress, she was an ally and advocate during her time on “Glee.”

Season 2, when Rivera’s feelings for Brittany (played by Heather Morris) grew, aired from 2010 to 2011. It was a time when marriage equality was not nationwide. Some states still barred same-sex couples from adopting children. Yet, queer high school and college students had a chance to see their experience mirrored because of Rivera’s insistence.

Rivera’s death is a major loss for the queer community that got our strength and courage from her.

Knowing that all of the “Glee” fans were rooting for and falling in love with Santana Lopez gave us a chance to breathe and feel accepted. Adding her Latina heritage was so important. Queer people of color, who have faced increased scrutiny from their own families, had someone representing them completely and sincerely.

Demi Lovato paid tribute by remembering the time she played Santana Lopez’s girlfriend.

The queer Latina love was not lost on fellow queer Latinos. Lovato herself was not out about her sexuality at the time and she admits in her post that Rivera inspired her. Rivera’s efforts to give the character an accurate and respectful storyline will forever be praised and admired as a fully realized manifestation of our experience.

Thank you for being someone we didn’t know we needed, Naya.

Our hearts are broken and our eyes are wet. We send love and hope to your loved ones. Rest in power, mija. We love you and will never forget what you did for our community.

Solomon Ray is one of the hottest artists in music right now. The young man is delivering music and lewks that we didn’t know we needed. Let’s take a moment to admire the artist who si giving us some new music.

This is Solomon Ray and he is not shy about showing off who he is.

One of the most iconic quotes from Juan Gabriel and it still rings true today. How many times has someone in your family asked about your sexuality? Like, obviously it is what you suspect it to be so why the third-degree, tía?

He’s a Britney stan, which is still so very important.

OH, BABY! BABY!

She might have one of the most bizarre Instagram accounts ever created, but that’s just part of her. Britney is an American treasure and should be protected and honored at all times no matter what. It’s a good thing that Ray understands the importance of loving the pop icon.

He knows how to give you all of those rancho vibes.

No puedo decidir. La primera foto o la segunda?

Those chains against the hairy chest are really just everything. Honestly, we should be thanking him for being able to serve us such diverse lewks. We should aspire to have a man that can do both.

Ray even does the thing when he is at work.

Just like mami always said, “You can never be overdressed.” Mom instilled in us the importance of always being well put together no matter what. We dress up to hang out in the living room to hang out when the family comes over. Seems like Ray would be the perfect man to bring around.

Look at him being all chill with Mariah Carey.

Like, we get it. You have famous friends and know people who are just incredibly awesome. Well, if you do know Mariah Carey, let’s go ahead and plan a dinner date. You know, for networking.
