It’s pretty well established by now that homosexual pirates were indeed a part of the Golden Age. How big a part is a matter of debate, but definitely a part. And how were those gay pirates treated upon being ‘outed’ by their shipmates? Well, that too is subject to much speculation. Cosmo Jarvis has offered his own theory in this video. Or maybe it’s supposed to be commentary on more contemporary gay issues. Regardless, it’s very piratey, and very gay. Seriously, don’t watch if seeing two dudes kissing is the sort of thing that sends your panties into a twist.
Remarkably sincere and heartfelt for a video called “Gay Pirates.” And even more remarkable is that Cosmo Jarvis himself is straight.
