Queer Eye seeks couples, Iraq war vets.
The folks at Queer Eye for the Straight Guy are planning for some Very Special Episodes, getting desperate for guys to make over, or both. The show’s latest e.mail newsletter details who casting directors are currently looking to hand over to the Fab Five:

. . . WANTED: NYC-AREA IRAQ WAR VETS, ENGAGED COUPLES . . .

Are you a veteran of the war in Iraq who was forced to spend
last Christmas in the desert, far from your loved ones? If
so, the Fab Five wants to give you a holiday you’ll never
forget!

Are you a New York City or bi-costal NY/LA engaged couple in need of a make-better and help preparing for your wedding sometime in mid-October?

If you match either (or both!) of these descriptions, apply to be on the show at:
