Bravo Makes It Official

sleddh1.jpg
NBC Universal’s bent boy loving Bravo officially announced their virtual relationship with gay “man” William Sledd:

As part of Bravo’s ongoing effort to deliver original content from the buzziest personalities on the web, the network announced OUTzoneTV.com’s June 21st launch date of the popular “Ask A Gay Man” webisode series hosted by Internet sensation and Gap manager William Sledd, a 23-year-old Paducah, Kentucky native. Timed to coincide with Gay Pride, the first webisode entitled “Ask a Gay Man: The Wedding/Commitment Cake Edition” features Sledd and his BFF Stephanie, “the best wedding planner in western Kentucky,” demonstrating how to make a pink-on-pink-on-pink cake, perfect for gay/straight/bi betrothal ceremonies.

Pink on pink cake? How gay!

But wait, it gets much, much worse…

Bravo also announced that Sledd will be OUTzoneTV.com’s voice at a variety of gay pride-related events providing commentary and posting man-on-the-street video installments during the course of the week.

Armed with a video camera and a mission, Sledd’s weekly vlogs (which are several minutes in length) tackle thorny fashion and pop culture topics and offer witty and irreverant advice about the fashion/style issues of the moment.

The baby-faced Sledd, who leans toward preppy in his own choice of style, admits that “it just really bothers me when people look like crap.”

And it really bothers us when gay “men” make a name for themselves by perpetuating stereotypes. Especially when they’re unoriginal, unstylish and uninteresting twats.

The good news, at least, is that Sledd’s presence will remain contained to the web. The idea of having him up on the television made us cringe.

      Lord help us all, but I’ll give the boy props for getting a paid gig.

      Wow, and he really needs the extra ego boost too. Now there’s no stopping this vacuous, annoying twit.

      @ BillieXX: There’s always money for a minstrel show. Sadly.

      “There’s always money for a minstrel show.” and who knows that better than Bravo, which unleashed the Fab Five on an innocent world.

      @ BillieXX: Actually, no. No one _does_ have to put on the minstrel show.

      Queerty Queers — You’re dead wrong on this one. Some gays *are* flamers. That doesn’t make them stereotypes. They are just who they are. Sissy power rules.

      At least with Queer Eye, there were five fairly distinctive personalities. Now we just get one faggling (with the obligatory female BFF) as the representative of ALL gay men — and as poster boy for the Degrassi Generation to look to as a role model. GO PROGRESS!

      I’m not anti-fem–hell, I’m a big sissy myself. Nor am I from a major city–try a small town in Ohio. But I think William Sledd is an inarticulate, juvenile brat with the depth of a Dixie cup, and I don’t think that working for the Gap from the time you were seventeen makes you an expert on fashion. Also, I understand it’s part of camp culture to verbally backhand people, but queen’s not even GOOD at it. I’ve heard better snark from my fourteen-year-old cousin, who, come to think of it, has colorful cutouts of her first initial all over her bedroom, too.

      And the kid’s an egomaniac. Which is always a little grating, but worse when he’s a talentless tool.

      Maybe some of us don’t want a single figurehead to represent all of Gaykind (like Spiffy said, at least the QE minstrels had their own touches of personality)–let alone one who lives in a bubble. And thinks he’s still sixteen.

      I’ve been unable toreally vocalize what I don’t like about him, and you nailed it: he’s just original.
