The second season of OutTV's hilarious hit reality series Don't Quit Your Gay Job kicked off Sept 5, starring Xtra's former social columnist and blogger, the delicious Sean Horlor, and his pal Rob Easton.
On the premiere episode, Sean and Rob tackled the duties of Vancouver's finest, joining the Vancouver Police Department. They were homo popos! I just love a man in uniform. They weren't involved in anything as severe as the riots, which is definitely a good thing, because while the looters were breaking into Sears and London Drugs, I'm sure Sean and Rob's gay instinct would've been to protect Michael Kors and Holt Renfrew.
I think it's totally cool of the VPD to embrace the gay community like this. It says a lot about how tolerant we've grown as a nation, compared to the gay raids of the '70s. A big thank-you to all the men and women who put their lives at risk every day to keep us safe. I just wanna blow you all!
In case you missed it, check out a clip from the Don't Quit Your Gay Job VPD edition, as well as a promo for an upcoming episode where Sean and Rob roll on the ground and get sweaty (sounds like what I'm going to be doing tomorrow night at 8-Bit Spit) with wrestlers Scotty Mac and El Phantasmo!
Don't Quit Your Gay Job airs on OutTV Mondays at 8pm ET/5pm PT.

Guess who's come clean in the latest issue of Marie Claire in the UK? Reese Rideout (Reece Jacobs in this piece) is straight and has a wife.
Well, my hat's off to Reese. I'm a super cynic, and when we were filming with him for our stripper episode of OutTV's Don't Quit Your Gay Job in 2009 (here and here and here)... well, he really seemed like he was enjoying himself, kissing fans in the basement of Celebrities, grabbing guys on the dancefloor. Maybe he just likes the attention and is that good an actor.
A really good actor. Because, as the reader who sent me this pointed out (thanks M), would you stay in a relationship with someone who lied to you about doing porn and told you over a dinner party while your friends were over? Get real... thanks but no thanks.

If you, like me, spent all of Pride Sunday wishing you were dead because you ate at a certain restaurant you've always had doubts about, and lo and behold, you came down with the nastiest case of food poisoning you've had since Southeast Asia... well, this video is for you. This year, Xtra teamed up with the hooligans at OUTtv to capture the best of our parade. It's so good it almost feels like I was there... instead of on my couch. Wah wah.
PS Happy birthday, boyfriend Steve
. Love you bigtime, you big homosexual you.

Something changed in the city this weekend. You feeling the Olympic energy? Can't walk down a street right now without hearing people talking in a ton of different languages. There are hot (HOT) male and female athletes everywhere. Something very special is taking place in Vancouver and I'm glad that I'm going to be hear for the beginning and end of it.
Now it only seemed right that to kick off the second season of Don't Quit Your Gay Job, that we make a nod to what's going to be taking place in Vancouver over the next few weeks:
I love Canada and I love being a Canadian, which is why my co-host Rob Easton and I spent the last few weeks learning how to curl and how to play hockey. Doesn't get anymore Canadian than that right?
Our winter sport-themed episodes will air Feb 15 and Feb 22 on OUTtv at 7:30pm ET/PT. I'd like to thank the Vancouver-based The Pacific Rim Curling League and The Cutting Edges for helping us make these shows. The LGBT community in Vancouver is amazing. If you are interested in either sport, visit their websites.
Here's another fun clip from our first season:
