Coming to TLC: "My Husband's Not Gay"

The Wrap shared news yesterday about an upcoming new special on TLC: "My Husband's Not Gay." Basically, a bunch of Mormons with "same-sex attractions" (I hate that term) have married women and want to tell the world that they aren't gay -- despite their same-sex attractions:
TLC will air a special in January called “My Husband’s Not Gay” that follows four men living in Salt Lake City, Utah, who don’t identify themselves as homosexual despite having an attraction to men.

The show focuses on three married couples: Jeff and Tanya, Pret and Megan, and Curtis and Tera. Joining the cast is 35-year-old Tom, the bachelor of the group who enjoys fishing and baseball and served as a missionary in Long Beach.

All cast members are devout Mormons belonging to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The special will follow the cast as they navigate life while explaining to outsiders their unique marriages.

“I get a little defensive when somebody calls my husband gay,” one wife says in the debut trailer.
As to the last paragraph, can I suggest that you not share your husband's same-sex attraction with the world if you don't want to field the question about whether or not he's gay?

Check out a promo piece for the program here:



The show premiers at 9:00 PM  (CST) on Sunday, 01/11/15, on TLC.

For the record, my own husband also isn't gay despite his own same-sex attractions. He's bisexual. Just sayin'...
