Says one: ‘Get your jockstrap on, shut up and let’s have a good time’
The men whose lives we will get to follow on the upcoming Logo reality series Fire Island have been unveiled.
The show follows a group of young professionals living together in a beachfront share house for the summer at what they describe as ‘the gay Disneyland’ and ‘THE gay mecca.’
They search for the romance, temptation and thrills that have brought gays to the island for decades.
The guys can be seen in the trailer saying things like: ‘Get your jockstrap on, shut up and let’s have a good time’ and ‘I’m not here for a long time, I’m here for a good time.’
Fire Island comes from Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, a famous couple who are BFFs with such A-list gays as Anderson Cooper, Andy Cohen and Neil Patrick Harris.
‘We fell in love with Fire Island years ago the minute we stepped off the ferry,’ the couple said in a joint statement.
‘We’re excited to share the long standing magic of the island with this new series and to be working again with our Logo family.’
The cast of Fire Island includes:
Khasan (IG:@khasanb84) – A dancer on break from his successful career after performing with pop legends like Beyoncé, Rihanna and Lady Gaga. He invites his friends to Fire Island to help him decide if he should move from Los Angeles to New York to be with his boyfriend.
Jorge (IG:@jorgebustillos) – After leaving his boyfriend and career as a doctor behind in Venezuela, Jorge moved to New York City to work as a marketing strategist. He goes to Fire Island to have an adventure of a lifetime with his best friend, Khasan.
Brandon (IG: @brandonosorio) – Photographer and NYU student Brandon is full of life and ready for any adventure. He is on the hunt for love during his first summer on Fire Island.
Cheyenne (IG: @thecheyenneparker) – Entrepreneur and model Cheyenne brings his fiery and passionate personality to the beach house. While launching his brand he must navigate the island’s temptations.
Justin (IG: @justintrusso) – The established NYC artist is using his trip to Fire Island as a way to break out of his shell and find new inspiration. With all the adventures the island has to offer, Justin tries to navigate it all without losing focus on his new boyfriend.
Patrick (IG: @pattymac42) – Rather than lounge away the summer, Patrick is spending his time on Fire Island working and using his time to figure out his next step post heartbreak. He also stirs the pot with his housemates with his eccentric, “no-backing-down” personality.
The show is due to premiere sometime in the spring.
It’s not known if Ripa, Consuelos or any of their famous friends will be making any appearances.
