Queer Eye looking for a gay man, a lesbian, and teenagers

In its ongoing quest to diversify (e.g., get people to watch again), Bravo’s Queer Eye is looking for non-straight men to make over.

Specifically, the show wants “a gay man who’s about to come out to friends and family, “Fab Five wannabes who happen to be in their teens,” and “a lesbian who welcomes a total physical makeover, finally.” That’s according to PlanetOut, which is working with the show. Only those who live in the New York City area may apply.

The site also reports that next season will feature celebrity makeovers: “Kevin Bacon (and the Bacon brothers) and former NFL star Boomer Esiason” will all appear on the show.
