Ladies and gentlemen, I have joined a reality TV show: GIRLS WHO LIKE BOYS WHO LIKE BOYS which debuted on Sundance Channel, December 7, 2010.
I wrote some essays about me and Joel on Huffington Post.
Some pretty great REVIEWS after the promos below.
Sarah and Joel discuss Golden Girls, Star Wars, and Joel’s ass on GayCities.com
“Here are real friends, coping, helping and leaning on each other” – NY Post
“Everyone’s point of view is aired, their issues brought out, their good moments celebrated, their less good ones drawn with sympathy.” – Los Angeles Times
And if that wasn’t a rave, we made it to the Editorial Board’s “2010 Missions Accomplished” List: “Though we didn’t get “The Biggest Reader,” we were lucky to get a reality show with substance thanks to the Sundance Channel’s “Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys” about the very real friendships shared between straight women and gay men.” – Los Angeles Times
Entertainment Weekly gives us a B grade – qualifying us for honors degrees from some of the finest universities in the world.
“There is something seductive and surprisingly fresh about the situations we are privvy to: There’s Joel, a whip-smart composer about to marry the man he loves, and Sarah, his perpetually single gal-pal.” – Time Out New York
“Letting America know that the man literally can’t marry where he lives allows us to realize the impact of second-class citizenship.” – Politics Daily
The NYTimes was totally snarky. But it is a serious and important newspaper. Every time one of its readers watches reality tv, an angel gets waterboarded.
“Sarah Rose and Joel Derfner are the most likeable of the pairs.” – Pittsburgh Post Gazette
“We met in the dining hall at Harvard where we both shared a love for fried things and chocolate things. They supplied us amply with both and we’ve been the best of friends for the past 18 or 19 years,” – Dallas Voice
“[GWLBWLB] helps define what makes the chemistry between straight women and gay men so darn potent (think: Liz Taylor and Montgomery Clift or Rock Hudson and Doris Day)” - Philly Magazine
