"I felt betrayed," Getzlaff told Newsweek after Boy Meets Boy wrapped. "They told me they put the twist in there because they wanted straight people to watch. I said to them, 'Well, you've played gay people as entertainment for straight people. Of course they're going to watch.'"
"We've been talking off and on [with Bravo] about a second season for a couple years," Ross expressed to After Elton in 2005. "They loved the [original] show, and it rated extremely well for them."
Nonetheless, the season never came to fruition (the first season is currently available on DVD, however).
Although problematic, Boy Meets Boy was one of the first few open displays of LGBT culture in the mainstream. Without it, there wouldn't even be a thought of bringing something like Finding Prince Charming to the table, much less, to the world at large. At a time where people are silenced forever just because of who they are or who they love, it would be wise to note and remember what occurred before this progressive day if only to ensure that we don't make the same mistakes again, whether it be in life or just on our television screens.
In other words, Finding Prince Charming, no straight guys, OK?
