Pennywise the dancing clown, or Pennywise the closet homosexual clown?
For whatever stupid reason, it’s the pressing question on every Twitter user’s lips after the remake of Stephen King’s It was released over the weekend.

I’m not entirely sold, but there’s going to be an It sequel. And who’s to say it won’t focus on him attending Pride and not returning back to Derry, Maine, to terrorise the children as grown ups?
