Meet the Gay Dude Behind the Blue Shirt Guy Viral Dances

Get it ‘dad’ !

Advocate – After losing his retail job, a Tennesee man decided to focus on things that made him happy, including acting and dance, and these days he’s an Internet sensation. The lifelong cheerleader has gone viral for the second time with his dance moves, and he is sharing his extended 15 minutes of fame with young people he hopes to inspire through dance.

These days it can be hard to find something genuinely good on the Internet. As people are constantly inundated with mis- and disinformation, Twitter trolls, and all-around negativity, some find themselves having a problematic relationship with social media. But, from time to time, somebody will do something that’s caught on video, and for whatever reason, a person trips the light fantastically, and a viral sensation is born.

Galyean taught the dance routine to more than ten blue-shirt guys, some as young as eight years old, in one evening before the show.

“I’ve always called myself a storyteller and not a dancer, so I think that’s what’s always been attractive about dance to the queer community,” he says.

“And so dance gives people a voice; it gives them an outlet to express themselves, and I think a dance studio or any performance area is just a safe space in general, no matter your body type, age, background, or sexuality,” Galyean says. “We’re here for one thing, and that’s to make art.”

He says that when the opportunity came to perform a second time, he thought he had to change things up and didn’t want to do the same skit again. That’s why he invited kids to share the spotlight.

“It gave me a chance to be the person I wish I had met when I was that age — when I was eight — wanting to be a dancer,” he says. “And it was the least I could do because this world has shown me so much love in the past few months.”

In October, the gay occasional television crime series actor, who loves to move his body to music, captured the hearts of college football fans. While at a football game against the University of Kentucky, he was invited to surprise the crowd by performing with the University of Tennessee dance team. The dance team’s TikTok account posted a video of the moment that has been viewed more than 16 million times and liked more than 4 million times.
