The Anti-Carson

Oprah‘s main gay Nate Berkus remains our favorite televised gay. The do-gooder, who’s currently helming the Big O’s The Big Give, recently chatted with AfterElton about whether it’s “important for gay men to be seen as more than just fashion designers and makeup artists”.

Says Berkus:

I think it’s important for everyone to be seen doing what they love to do, so I actually don’t draw a distinction between quote-unquote stereotypical gay professions versus other ventures that people might excel in. Looking at people and judging them based on their sexuality, or discounting someone based on their sexuality is a really, really scary, rough, unnecessary road. I have the opportunity to be on television and I’m very grateful for that, but I don’t think the importance is that I’m hosting a television show.

We’ll we think it’s important, but mostly so we can ogle you, Berkus.

    Why does he have to be the anti Carson?

    In addition to being hot, he also seems a lot more evolved than the idiot who titled this piece.

    What does “anti Carson” mean?

  • David Hauslaib, Queerty

    Anti Carson Kressley?

    I don’t know, there has always been something about Oprah and her “anointed” ones that makes my skin crawl. Its the same feeling I get from preachers and politicians, that lurking behind that veneer of positivity and light lies something equally as negative and dark. A philosophy prof. once told me that when someone makes great effort to appear a certain way bet on the fact that they are actually the exact opposite.

    Anti-Carson Daly, I could see, but Kressley? How is Nate so different from Carson Kressley? Less flamboyant? OK.

  • Bitch Republic

    I used to like Oprah, but her crazed nonsense pushing Obama down everyone’s throats… I’ve lost respect for her.


    I totaly agree with amvanman there is something creepy about Oprah and all these people she brings into our lifes

  • tommy

    but interior decorator that’s a macho occupation

  • Chris Evans

    How exactly is he the Anti-Carson? Because he’s less feminine?

    Being an interior designer isn’t any less stereotypically gay than being a fashion designer or make-up artist.
