While our homegirl Vicci Martinez made it through her Battle Round last night on NBC’s The Voice, our gay Mormon buddy – and avid Unicorn Booty reader – Tyler Robinson did not! @&*%^! It’s a complete shame, because he far outgunned Patrick when it came to performing Elvis’ “Burning Love.” Even Cee-Lo […]
Ellen cracks us up, as always! She joins her fellow gays, and ‘The Voice’ airs tonight on NBC.
A recent look at the gayest cities in America saw San Francisco, California fail to even break the top 10. The Daily Show goes all gay blog to investigate. And by investigate, we mean correspondent Jason Jones dons a jockstrap and climbs into a sling. Love that investigative journalism over […]
Surely by now you’ve seen the photo of President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton watching as American secret ops troops descended upon Osama Bin Laden’s bunker suburban home in Abbottabad, Pakistan last weekend. The image has become the most-viewed photograph of all time on Flickr in only five days. […]
Making the gay blog rounds today, British Prime Minister David Cameron is hellbent on protecting the impressionable, young children of the UK from the horrors of the world. Which is why he has ended homelessness, lifted all families above the poverty level, and has ensured that every single British child […]
Yessiree boys and girls, step right up and witness the magic, the myth, the mozzarella – Praise the Grilled Cheesus! The good folks at EZ Grill want you to get down on your knees and praise the Gouda Lord for a chance to win your very own disposable grill. Springtime is […]
This video is just crazy talk. Gay rights activist Ray Hill faces off against Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association. Fischer calls the show product placement, saying, “[A]dvertisers purchase time on television programs because they know that what people see on television influences their behavior and influences their choices. […]
We told you on Monday about Rachel Maddow’s interview with The Guardian in which she politely urged that other uber-famous gay journalist to go ahead and come out already. Heck, we even showed you an artist’s rendering of a Maddow-Cooper-John Stewart threesome. (Fun!) Maddow is one of the very few […]
If you were one of the many TV viewers who were annoyed by NBC’s incessant promotional campaign for their Idol competitor, the Voice, then let’s hope that you were able to watch the show (if not, watch it online!), because it was actually pretty damn awesome. The premise is slightly […]
Maddow is one of the very few gay news anchors in America – well, one of the very few openly gay news anchors. Does she feel frustration towards an equally well-known news presenter who is widely assumed to be gay but has never come out? For the first time, Maddow […]
Behold the funniest television show that isn’t even on the air for another indeterminate period of time on a premium cable network that we don’t even get so we won’t be able to watch it anyway. In any case, we are literally laughing out loud in the Booty business office […]
American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis has joined Victoria Jackson on the questionable things to say about Glee train this week with his bizarre tweets about the correlation between the musical television program and um…HIV. I like the idea of "Glee" but why is it that every time I watch […]
Binging is the new smoking, a nasty habit that is all too addicting. The gay TV landscape has drastically changed in recent years. With streaming services like Hulu and Netflix broadly expanding our access to new and surprising TV shows and characters. In years passed, no one wanted to watch infomercials and black-and-white reruns at 2 A.M.. Now we can lie back and watch whatever we want regardless of what’s playing on our local stations.
All of this disruption in the television industry is producing some wildly inventive results. With new revenue systems, networks and streaming companies are taking greater risks with the kinds of shows that they produce. Long gone are the days where every show has to be about white heterosexual twenty-somethings dating in the big city. Today, we have a smorgasbord of viewing options, including an increasing variety of gay and trans characters.
While some of us grew up on innovative hits like Will & Grace, new shows like Transparent, Difficult People, and Orange Is the New Black are giving audiences a complex, nuanced portrait of what it means to be gay and trans in the modern world.
Sometimes painfully realistic and other times hilarious, gay TV shows are an important step towards equality for all.
With the movie industry getting a D+ in its depiction of the gay community, television is often the only place to turn for sophisticated stories about the LGBTQ community. With other countries and a new generation of YouTubers stepping up to the plate, the amount of content online and on TV is staggering. Whether you like gay dating shows with naked guys, experimental shows about the human condition or trashy soap operas, you can get all of your gay-themed TV news right here. Learn about everything gay that’s coming to a streaming service near you.
