Barrowman’s Birthday Bash
John Barrowman was brought up in Chicago, and last week he reached a landmark – he turned 50. And he celebrated the event in several ways. First, he chopped off all his hair and revealed his natural silver coloring – which I must say suits him. Then he launched a T-shirt campaign to support transgender rights and posted a photo wearing the shirt (taken pre-coif). “Most of us have the luxury of being who we are and living our truth. We must stand in solidarity with those who are not as lucky. Grab one of these t-shirts and wear it with pride. Let’s show our support for our transgender family.” Proceeds from the campaign will go to the Trans Youth Equality Foundation. As Johnny suggests, you can grab one at Represent.com/barrowman.
As noble and fulfilling as that endeavor is, what he’ll likely remember from turning 50 is the sight of his Arrow co-star, Stephen Amell, bringing out his birthday cake wearing only a pair of snug camouflage undies! Since John has frequently expressed his fondness for Amell’s physique, this was certainly the gift that kept on giving. You can see Barrowman blowing out his candles on BillyMasters.com.
