The A-List: Dallas To Make TV Safe For Bow-Tie-Wearing Gay Christian Republicans

The A-List: Dallas
debuts on Logo on October 3—and like Christmas or the Apocalypse, the countdown has begun.

We know, we know—you didn’t ask for it. But Logo’s giving it to us anyway. Think of it as a gift.

And yes, you’re going to hate it, complain loudly about it, and possibly secretly watch it. And like its NYC counterpart, it will have absolutely nothing to do with whoever the real movers and shakers of Dallas gay life happen to be. Nor will it have anything to do with nice people doing nice things. Those people are too busy making the world a better place—and don’t make for awesome television.

By its very definition, awesome television involves healthy amounts of brawling and huge crystal goblets of wine thrown at the heads of enemies.

But, according to the trailers above, the show will feature some guy who may or may not dress like an actual cowboy 24/7 (Levi Crocker, 26, right), some other guy who wears the biggest bowties you’ve ever seen—and who happily raises money for anti-gay conservative Republican politicians (Taylor, 27, in clip below)—plus some serious abuse of the word “y’all” and trite references to all that is allegedly “bigger in Texas.”

Yee haw.

      Loving the gay Republicans!!! Reminds me of the American Dad episode where one half of the gay couple turns out to be a diehard conservative.

      Did not watch the preview.. but gays come in all political persuasions!!
      In Northern Europe many of the conservative parties have significant numbers of gay men (and to a lesser extent also gay women) in power at a local and national level.

      Talk about a group of stereotypes writ large: guys with bowties, cowboy garb and faux-butch voices pretending they’re accepted by their fundy family and neighbours. And whining about not being allowed to join the golf club.

      Arse-List Dallas dialogue will surely include: “We’re even allowed to shake hands with straight men here, y’all, yee haw”!

      Here’s a hint that GayCities won’t tell you on their pages: The only way to survive a trip to Dallas is pretend you’re in a theme park called “Conservistan.” Works every time.

      I’m sick to my stomach, being from Texas I think this is the biggest amount of stereotypes about gays and texans I’ve ever seen. I hope this shit flops HARD.

      @Pep, Italy:

      Conservatives in the U.S. are bear little resemblance to the mainstream European conservatives. Most European conservatives would be considered evil socialists and liberals by current Republican standards. (Hell, Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon would be run out of the party based their beliefs and policies if they were alive today.)

      The U.S. Republican Party is happily anti-gay. It champions preventing gays from having equality, whether that is in housing, employment, or domestic partnerships (civil unions or marriage).

      As for Taylor, if the guy is socially liberal and fiscal conservative, he’d find a more welcoming home in the Democratic Party. The majority of U.S. deficits were created under Republican presidents and not Democratic presidents. Moreover, the modern Republican Party is dominated by people who have no understanding of economics, but adhere to an irrational no-tax ideology.

      It’s also bewildering how anyone who is a Christian can be a Republican. In the true sense of Christianity, the Republican Party is the antithesis of Christ’s values. The Republican Party worships the dollar, the free market, and corporations.

      Not an attractive cast. They all look the same.

      The Dallas gay scene can be very starched and cliquish. So I am not sure this casting is THAT far off. Some of our gay Dems are more conservative than gay Repubs. It is a very complicated gay scene and if Logo can capture that, it will be interesting.

      @Pep, Italy: Difference being that in most European nations, the Conservative Party doesn’t advocate for segregation and concentration camps for gays like many in the American-Hard-Right-Protestant-Christians-Only-Theocracy-Party, formerly the Republican Party.

      @Josh in OR: It is sad how we have let organized religion take over our government. It has been the biggest stumbling block in gay rights.

      @Josh in OR – absolutely true, although it doesn’t seem fair to blame Protestants only, there’s plenty of Catholic haters out there as well, and unlike the Protestants they present a much more united front (clerical hierarchy, several high-profile anti gay bishops etc.).

      Kill it with fire! Seriously! Dallas?!? Well, I guess now the rest of the country’s stereotypes about Tx are going to get reinforced. (Dallas is kind of a joke to the rest of us living in the Lone Star state because they seem to BE the stereotype).

      How about A list Austin? Or Houston? Oh, wait, then you’d actually meet normal queers with real lives sans “Dallatude”…

      Can’t wait to compare this with the new show “Most Eligible Dallas”. So far, everyone on that show is an ASS!!!!

      @Pep, Italy: But rightwing European parties who have out, prominent gays in their leadership don’t make gay bashing a central tenet of their platform, quite unlike the GOP-Taliban.

      “Housewives with balls….y’all!” Omfg, seriously? i’m from dallas, and hardly ANYone looks or acts like those people. The ones who do are from fort worth. The people who populate Cedar Springs would look just as natural in Pittsburgh as they do in Dallas.
