Homosexuals Invited to Audition For New Dating Show – For Heterosexuals?

Step right up! Are you a hip, trendy gay who knows how to navigate the dating scene? Do you want to be famous (or at least reality TV famous)? Then have we got a television show for you! A casting call just went out looking for LBGT dating “experts.” Just don’t expect to actually find love on this show — because it appears you’re being cast as the token gay wingman for hetero daters. Reads the New York casting call:

Are you a trendy and extroverted member of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered community?
Would you consider yourself an expert (college degree or self-proclaimed!) when it comes to dating?

A new matchmaking show is looking for high energy LGBT’s to act as Wingmen and Wingwomen to whip hopelessly helpless daters into shape.

-Must be between ages 18 and 30.
-Outgoing and fun people ONLY!

-Sense of Humor and Outspokenness preferred!
-Strong opinions about fashion/style, matchmaking and dating & relationship etiquette.
-Must be local to NYC area.
-Must be available for casting interview in January 2010- Exact date TBD.

And while they didn’t put it in the casting call, we’re going to guess producers are looking for “bitchy queens,” “catty fags,” and “witty ‘mos.”

If that sounds too stereotypical for you, there’s also a Mormon dating show that’s being cast in Salt Lake.

    maybe we’ll get to give a handy to the guy if he strikes out with the girl!

    Seriously, is it 1996 or something? I dont think even middle America wants another Queer Eye.

    ugh :-/

    DISGUSTING! they want another stereotypical gay guy to say sassy shit while other people laught AT him. If they want gays they better settle for the calm & collected ones with good heads on their shoulders.

    hey. we all need to start somewhere to get famous.

    and there’s always another Chris Soriano waiting in the wings. yeah, he’s got talent but he’s also exactly what I think they are looking for. Short, sassy, and quick witted with bitchy sayings.

    You don’t have to have any talent to be on television these days, just be an asshole with the willingness to make a complete fool of your self in front of millions of people. Beware though you will be known as “that guy” for the rest of your life good luck ever living it down. Ask anyone who did an obscure porno 20 in the last years.

    America hungers for unrepentant douchebags, not reformed douchebags. Break out the orange fake tans, honey, I am going over to Hey Queerty, you are orange, how about giving us some guns and pear-ass honeys to laugh over?

  • tazz602

    I’m sorry – but that call is completely age-ist. Who – between 18 and 30 is an EXPERT at dating?? You want the WISDOM of someone who has been there and seen a lot. Set up for a token queen who will just be comic relief.

    Couldn’t we have a nice Brian Epstien-type hook me up with 100,000 screaming nymphets (tranny-nymphs most welcome!)?
