All is not right at The Glee Project’s Facebook…
After the offensive inclusion of Santana in a poll on The Glee Project’s Facebook page, discussed in our post here, The Glee Project Facebook surpassed itself with the response to a concerned fan screen capped above. We have responded with this comment on their page: 
This is an unconscionable response by The Glee Project Facebook to the sincere and warranted objections of Glee fans to this offensive poll. Santana is an out lesbian who dated boys before she was forced out of the closet involuntarily. She dated boys when she was struggling to come to terms with her identity and trying to conform to expectations. She even had a beard in the form of a closeted gay man. Since then, she has come to terms with her sexual orientation. She is no longer struggling or in the closet. She has declared herself to be a lesbian. She proudly took her girlfriend to the prom and ran for prom court with her. She has had an “energy exchange” with another young woman. She has made it perfectly clear that she’s a lesbian, doesn’t enjoy sex with men, and is not going back for more of what never worked for her in the first place. She is not a viable dating option for Ryder Lynn. 
Coming out is a process that is hard and yet frees a person to reflect their true being to the world. For the Facebook of The Glee Project to negate this difficult and brave portrayal of the step that many LGBTQ men and women take in real life, and in the week of National Coming Out Day, is truly disgusting. How can The Glee Project, a program linked to Glee which is supposed to celebrate the lives of people of all orientations, feel that this is a proper response to fans calling them on the misguided inclusion of Santana in this poll’s choices? It isn’t. This poll has, in effect, asked fans to vote either for a story line where Santana goes back into the closet to date men or one where lesbianism is shown, incorrectly and damagingly, as a phase and something that women can ‘get over’ with the help of the ‘right man’. The Glee Project Facebook should apologise to all the fans they have hurt and offended by this utter disregard of Santana’s sexuality.

We urge all GEP supporters to make their voices heard on The Glee Project’s Facebook page.
