Real World Brooklyn - Queer as Ever!

The twenty-first season of MTV's, Real World: Brooklyn, premieres on Wednesday, January 7. It promises to be gayer than a particularly gay picnic basket; packed with enough gay, bisexual, transgendered and questioning participants to ensure this season will be the most rainbow-friendly one so far. No longer onboard for shock value, novelty or conflict-baiting, the lavender-leaning members of this eight-person cast will (if the press materials aren’t lying) do their part to keep it real and make life in their Red Hook warehouse digs particularly fabulous.

Why am I posting about MTV on an activist blog? I feel Viacom has been integral to the LGBT community, having LOGO a 24/7 gay channel, and showing many LGBT themed programs on their other networks is vital in putting out our stories and lives to millions of viewers.

I'm right there with you. I just watched episode one! I think this couldn't have come at a better time. This is the show that the 16-18 y/o are watching, and come 2010, what they are seeing here, may help sway the national voting in favor of the LGBTQ community, if we haven't gotten it accomplished already before then!
