On November 11th, 2009, Kurt Hummel first auditioned for a solo that they told him he couldn’t have, ‘Defying Gravity’. Wanting to protect the most important person in his life, his father, from the ridicule and hate that he was subject to every day, Kurt blew the audition. He told his father, “I love you more than I love being a star”.
On November 8th, 2010, after suffering from an onslaught of physical torture from a school bully, Kurt Hummel was feeling lost, exhausted and hurt from the unending torment. After a visit to a local boy’s school, he gains the courage to stand up to his bully only to be sexually assaulted. However, what he walks away with more so than fear, is a new hope and new support in the face of a new friend.
On November 9th, 2011, Kurt Hummel makes the choice to give everything he has to give to the boy that he loves. Not for the attention, not for the physicality, but for them. No matter what anyone else says or thinks about them, they find the comfort, compassion, and support in each other to make their choice to share themselves with the other.
