In the summer of , Bravo premiered Boy Meets Boy. Like Finding Prince Charming, the show featured a gay bachelor sifting through several contestants in the hopes of making a match. The catch? Unbeknownst to the bachelor, his pool of potential matches included both gay men and straight men who were pretending to be gay.
The show revealed this secret toward the end: As icky as that might sound, in a perverse way, you have to give the show some credit. At least it foregrounded a gay man trying to find love, instead of using gay men as humorous accessories—or potential roadblocks in the path of straight contestants.
All of the gay men on the show had to pretend to be hetero. Unlike Boy Meets Boy, there was no chance in this one that a gay contestant could find love unless it was with another contestant. And who could forget Gay, Straight, or Taken? The format is basically all in the title: Like Playing It Straight, the most a gay man here could walk away with was a prize—not love.

All of this is to say that in reality dating shows, gay men have never been allowed to just date. Besides great editing, you need a great cast—a cast that gets it, full of people who have a sense of self-awareness but a lack of self-consciousness. Gay men can find it difficult being unself-conscious because our lives are often spent being very conscious and guarded about something that sets us apart, fueling a need to conceal it.
Drag Race finds a neat way around this, as the drag alter egos of its contestants—as well as their ceremonial, and deeply symbolic, shedding of the makeup after each challenge—provide a sort of mirror to the truth.
Painting and subsequently peeling away at the layers of their makeup finds the queens at their most vulnerable and their most philosophic. Just think of Dorian Corey, sitting eternal at her vanity in Paris Is Burning , espousing truth after truth after truth. But the queens also get what the show is, they know the formulas, and they know their roles. Coco and Alyssa were already enemies by the time they saw each other for the first time in the work room and the shade descended like manna from heaven.
As are the best Real Housewives. They both come prepared with beef and catchphrases—and with their faces beat for the gods. The men on Finding Prince Charming , on the other hand, were earnest to the point of coma-inducing—amateurs! In the first episode, he comes in screaming at nothing and no one, immediately setting himself apart from all the other contestants by daring to have a personality.

I just have no interest in watching it. Not because it will doubtlessly promulgate any number of gay stereotypes—reality shows are largely built on stereotypes and archetypes— but Bravo had a similar show about straight friends sharing a summer house that I also had no interest in because, like Fire Island , it looked boring as fuck. Besides, The Jersey Shore already did all of this and did it brilliantly.
And if you want to talk about compelling trash. There are gifable moments and instantly classic quotes.
