The Gay Lives of Straight Guys: VIDEO


A new documentary debuting on LOGO looks at when straight men immerse themselves in the professions and territories of gay men. Gay Lives of Straight Guys looks at hetero men who dive in to the worlds of surfing, hairdressers, fashion, bartenders, gay gyms, gay football leagues, and go-go boys and actually come out alive.

Says one fashionista: "I was a jock in high school. You can do manly things and wear super-cute tops."

  1. Another nasty piece made by self-hating gays promoting closeted "straight" guys

  3. Surfing is a gay thing? Who knew?

    Still waiting for LOGO to air anything worth watching.

  4. Wait, how is surfing a gay profession? I have read that the surfing world is kind of homophobic.

  5. Oh My GOD!!! Do some straight guys become hairdressers?!?!?! WOW, we gays should finally feel good about ourselves knowing this!

    Does anybody gay actually work at Logo other than RuPaul?

  6. Why is this on Logo...gays could care less...maybe it should be on A&E after Duck Dynasty...seems ti me that crowd needs the education that guys can do whatever they want without judgement.

  7. Gay or straight, unless they are doing drag, it should be illegal for men to wax their eyebrows.
    Eeesh. Major turnoff.

  8. Surfing is a gay profession? HUH??

  9. Exact what is a "gay gym?" And since when is surfing and bar tending a "gay profession?" I guess a those saloons in the frontier West were gay bars?

  10. @Yup, while I agree with most of the above, when I first came to NYC I went to an honest-to-god gay gym. All the clientele were gay and the gym advertised itself as catering to gay men. And that steam room and sauna...seriously. People go "all gyms are/can be gay and all of them have action in the sauna" but sorry, nothing compared or has compared to that.

  11. So, Logo has completely run out of ideas?

  12. Who knew they had comedy writers at LOGO?

  13. Logo's really reaching for that straight girl audience with this bait.

    Logo, you are the literal worst.

  14. Dumb! Here's an idea for LOGO: emphasize the non-sterotypes of our gay men playing in our flag football league than celebrating s straight man's securities within the gay community. I am not sure what the point of this show is about..(in 2014)

    Posted by: Tom | May 27, 2014 11:16:00 AM

  15. Did LOGO run out of ideas? They never really had too many in the first place.

    Posted by: Jack M | May 27, 2014 11:19:43 AM

  16. I wonder if these so called gay gyms exclude straights.

    Posted by: Perry | May 27, 2014 11:21:59 AM

  17. Oh San Diego...

    Posted by: SDAndy | May 27, 2014 11:23:33 AM

  18. Why would I want to watch this?

    Posted by: Mike in the Tundra | May 27, 2014 11:45:19 AM

  19. What is the difference between a barber who cuts hair and a hairdresser???

    Posted by: Mark | May 27, 2014 11:46:58 AM

  20. To the gay media, please stop your pathetic obsession with straight guys. You're making the rest of us look bad. That is all.

    Posted by: Mike | May 27, 2014 11:47:55 AM

  21. The comments on here are really judgmental and snobby. What is it about gay men here that they are so afraid of anything stereotypically associated with gays. The point of the show is to break stereotypes but somehow it had the opposite effect here. Heaven forbid we acknowledge that they're actually gay hairdressers.

    Somehow along the way to equality, large sections of the gay community morphed into this judgmental swamp that seem to have little tolerance for the identifiably gay. Every depiction is met with derision and I really don't understand why.

  22. Surfing?

    Posted by: Chadd | May 27, 2014 12:00:46 PM

  23. @Donks, Hardly anyone's judging gay hair dressers here. Most of us are judging Logo/other gay media for continuing to ignore queer programing to promote another "Straight guys step into the world of Gay culture..." project

    It's beyond pathetic at this point.

    Posted by: Cory | May 27, 2014 12:18:06 PM

  24. And the show is subtitled "Girly Men Tell All"

    Posted by: Steve Talbert | May 27, 2014 12:22:45 PM

  25. Bravo is still the better gay channel.
