Gay Top Models are the new Cover Boys!

Today there’s a great cover story in the latest edition of Xtra West on Vancouver’s Next GAY Top Model. And in that cover story, not only do we get a bit more scoop on this totally fab event, but we also get THIS:

Oh, the hotness! How fab is that pic? Whoever had this brilliant idea totally deserves kudos. It’s awesome fun to see all the contestants recreate the timeless biblical imagery of the Garden of Eden in the likeness of... who else, but Adam & Steve! And all their friends!! Love it!!!

The article includes some really interesting poop on Vancouver’s Next Gay Top Model. Example? This quote from event producer Terry Costa made me LOL:

"Our budget has crossed $375,000 and we have no money whatsoever. It's all products, services and prizes, in-kind support. The money from the ticket sales will go directly to Friends for Life."

Hilarious! I can totally relate to what he says. My budget *never* matches the money I have either. But good for them for securing so much non-monetary support to get this event off the ground and keep it going.
Xtra West’s article chronicles some of the early days of the competition including auditions, judges and lots more. It also makes mention of the OUTtv documentary currently in production featuring all the behind-the-scenes developments and step-by-step evolution of Vancouver’s Next Gay Top Model.
I think the documentary will be a fantastic way to extend the life of this great Vancouver-based project by airing it across Canada to viewers all over the country. I can’t wait to see it.

Not only is Gay Top Model alot of fun, but this event is entirely dedicated to raising funds for the Friends for Life society, in support of people living with life-threatening illnesses. Click on THIS! to have a look at what Friends for Life is all about.
Then, get your tix for big event: the winner of Vancouver’s Next Gay Top Model will be selected at a special, theatrical public event on Thursday, March 6th at Celebrities Nightclub here in Vancouver.
100% of ticket proceeds go to Friends for Life – they are $20 advance and $25 at the door. I hear that the organizers have nearly met their goal to sell-out the event so don’t dilly-dally… you can grab tickets at Little Sister’s Book & Art Emporium which, of course, is smack-dab in the tender heart of Vancouver’s Davie Village.
