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.
