5 Ways to Handle Awkward Moments, Just Like Steve Grand

We all know what it's like to be caught in an awkward moment. But it's all in how you handle it, right? Out gay music star, Steve Grand, had an awkward encounter of his own, recently. While promoting a show and discussing his upcoming appearance at the Marine Corps Ball, Grand was asked about dating women by one of the on-air reporters.

 

 

Someone skipped over a possibly relevant bullet point... lol Today I went on live TV in San Diego to promote the show I'm doing tonight at Urban Mo's and to also talk about getting asked to the Marine Corps ball. The two anchor ladies on both sides of me were very sweet and cheery. They were great. About a minute into the interview I was talking about where I draw inspiration, and one of the very well intentioned anchors interjected: "poor women who date you, right?"After a few seconds of pause: "well.. No. I'm gay so..."I used the opportunity to talk about how no matter who we love, as humans, we all love the same... That our experiences are far more alike than different... Love is a human experience, not specified to one sexual orientation or another... etc. Immediately after that, the news woman to my right asked about being asked to the Marine Corps ball... by a man. As soon as we cut the segment I burst out laughing and let the woman know it was all okay. I understand they are meeting new people every couple of minutes and are expected to entertain and engage audiences all over the state so I don't post this at all as a criticism. If I was legit famous it would be one thing, but I still feel grateful for all the opportunities I am afforded to talk about my life and my work. This was just a silly moment I found to be pretty hilarious. Lol. #stayclassySanDiego
