The G in LGBTQ+ Stands for Giant Squid

Video of giant squid captured in Gulf of Mexico.

This kind of representation is so important.

Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome to the stage ... This Big Ol' Squid.

Some scientists have spotted a giant squid (which is canon gay! look at all those limp wrists!) about a hundred miles southwest of New Orleans, The New York Timesreports. Capturing footage of a giant squid, or Architeuthis, is super rare -- so rare that researchers have only recorded the invertebrate swirling about in its natural habitat twice in the past. A Pride miracle, truly!


"People started crowding around, shouting, getting pretty excited, but trying not to get too excited," Dr. Edie Widder, the founder of the Ocean Research and Conservation Association, told the Times. "Because we had to be sure it really was what we thought it was."

Not long after the Tuesday sighting, Widder's team was able to confirm that the cephalopod they'd spotted was indeed a giant squid. It was a baby, in fact, measuring about 10 feet long -- the largest twink in history, one might say.

Out was unable to reach Yon Big Fucking Squid for comment in time for publication, but we imagine that they're fully in favor of shutting down the gigantic Shell-owned oil-drilling platform in the Gulf of Mexico, demilitarizing the United States, opening the borders, abolishing ICE and the U.S. prison system, and making cars 40 feet long with two steering wheels and eight gas pedals. "Fully automated luxury gay sea communism," they might sputter from their blood-stained beak.

Give it up for big squid. A true gay icon, perhaps.
