Video: A model 'queer'

by Jeremy Hooper

On last night's edition "Top Model," the contestants channeled their inner Goldie-Hawn-from-"Laugh In" (ask your grandparents), painting words on their bodies for the big photo shoot. Only this time, the theme was all about bullying, with anti-LGBT harassment getting a prominent mention:

It's easy in this reality-saturated culture to get all "whatever" about these kinds of inclusive clips. But the fact that they are so common and casual now? Well, that's kind of something. 5-10 years ago, most gay mentions still received some sort of pre-episode warning notice. Now, the teachable moments are as common as showmances, slick editing, and dramatic casting-offs that are broken up by a commercial break. That may just be reality TV's biggest community service.
