As a gay man, I can say it feels like we've finally arrived.


Boy Meets Boy

quote:
The Bravo cable network is going where no television dating show has gone before: matchmaking gay men.
Boy Meets Boy, a six-episode series that will premiere in July, also twists reality show conventions by secretly including straight men among the pool of dating prospects.

quote:
The series, with Dani Behr of Extra as host, will feature a gay leading man choosing from 15 potential suitors. Midway, he will be told that some of his potential dates are actually heterosexual. He won't be told which ones, of course, and Ross is still debating at which point viewers will be let in on the secret.
"We have created a gay world where the straight guys are in the closet," he said.

quote:
Already, the Traditional Values Coalition plans to alert its 43,000 member churches to protest the series, said Andrea Lafferty, the Washington-based group's executive director.
"Clearly, they've hit a new low," Lafferty said. "What's next after Boy Meets Boy? Boy Meets Sheep?

Bravo is also scheduling a series this summer, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, where five gay designers make over the wardrobe of a heterosexual man.

Where do I sign?

Actually, if they can take over my fitness program and THEN redo my wardrobe, I'll be even happier.

These shows are premiering on Bravo in the United States, not necessarily Bravo! in Canada.
