10 Ways to Have the Best (and Gayest) Halloween Ever
It's Halloween! In my humble opinion, it is the best and gayest holiday of the year. But if you’re anything like me, you want this Halloween to be better—and even gayer—than ever before. So here are 10 ways to guarantee you have a Halloween that’s fun and gay as all hell.
1. Take time and put thought into your costume
"Oh, I don’t dress up." People who say this are literally the worst. It’s Halloween. Live a little. Get dressed up and put some time, effort, and creativity into your costume.
2. Do a group or duo costume with your best gay friends
Duo and group costumes are absolutely amazing! They are a chance to get to bond with whoever you're doing them with, and they're also just downright fun. Do it!!
3. Explore drag
Ever want to go out in drag but were a little too nervous? Well, now you have the perfect opportunity to give it a try.
4. Don’t slut shame
I’m aware that Mario and Luigi have shirts in the games. They’re not just wearing red and green Speedos with matching suspenders. But honestly, who cares? Don’t slut-shame others for wanting to show off their bodies.
5. Don’t get blackout drunk
There’s always that one (or four) members of the crew who get way too drunk. Do not be one of them. Don’t ruin someone else’s night by forcing them to take care of you while you puke your brains out. Not a cute look.
6. Go to a gay Halloween party
Should be obvious, right? My friends this year wanted to go this straight Halloween party and I was like, "Absolutely not!" Any other night, sure. Not this night though.
7. Don’t wear an offensive or culturally appropriative costume
Don’t wear a Native American headdress. Don’t do blackface. Don’t do anything else that’s offensive and freaking terrible. Okay? It’s really not that hard. There are millions of things to choose from that aren’t offensive.
8. Do ask for consent before you touch
The boys will be out. They’ll be scantily clad. But that doesn’t mean you’re allowed to grab their asses without consent. Always—and I mean always—ask before touching (as well as taking a photo!).
9. Make out with a cute guy
It’s Halloween. Have some fun. Get drunk. Kiss a guy who’s dressed like a unicorn. Live it up!
10. Don’t do a Rick and Morty-themed costume
Seriously though. I already have it planned out. I swear to God if someone else does a Pickle Rick costume using dead rat limbs, I’m going to be PISSED. I will come for you.
