Who are your dream (gay) boyfriends?

As this year’s LGBT PrideMonth comes to a close, I want to pay tribute to some of the fabulous gays who tickle my pop-culture fancy. Take it from Grace, Carrie, Charlotte,all those girlfriends on Queer Eye,and now me — gay boyfriends are a girl’s best friend. If I could assemble adream team, these great guys (two real, three fictitious) would comprise my personal Fab 5:

1. Mario Cantone: Forget Sex and the City’s raucous Anthony; I’mtalking about the actor who plays him. Indeed, the ribald comic can make Barbara Walters blush and leave Sherri Shepherd crying tears of laughter as The View’s resident GBFF. I can’t think of anyone on television with whom I’d rather share a couple rounds of drinks and dish the latest reality shows (as he does so hilariously in the clip below).

After the jump,check out the rest of my picks (including the young’un who bumped poor Carson Kressley off my lineup):

2. Christian Siriano: I’dvolunteer anyday to be the Project Runway wunderkind’s real-life Barbie doll. Seriously, after seeing the guy create couture magic from a pile of candy wrappers, he’s got an open invite to bring his ironichaircut and skinny jeans over to my place and use whatever raw materials he can find (curtains, pillowcases, dish towels?) to overhaul my wardrobe. And, yes, he can shout "fierce!" as often as his heart desires.

3. Lloyd from Entourage: Can you imagine the awesome phone calls, texts, and instant messages you’d receive from Ari Gold’s beleaguered assistant throughout the workweek? All thatrepressed anger channeled into a series of hilariously bitchy rants. Then again, for pure schmooze value alone, I’d probably be wise to replace Lloyd with Lance Bass. Justin Timberlake’s not getting any younger!

4. Will & Jack from Will & Grace: I know, I know, so obvious! But I’m looking for a roommate anyway, and Will would be perfect: He’s neat, he knows how to cook, he’s a great Charades partner. On Tuesdays, Jackcould come over and watch So You ThinkYou Can Dance and we’d vote for the cutest boy with the mostrevealing tights. 

5. Marco Del Rossi from Degrassi: The Next Generation: Sorry Carson Kressley, I love you, but my boyfriend can handle his own grooming. And that’s why I went with Degrassi‘s sweet, recently outed Marco. As his relationship withbaby hag Ellie has already proved, he’s sweet, a good listener, and a greatfriend (not to mention a fun fashionista, a bitof a gossip, and a neat roommate to boot).

    My dream GBFF’s are Neil Patrick Harris (awe – wait for it – some) and…Michael Slezak!! I just want to sit on a couch and watch TV with him all day and make snarky comments together. :)

  • JJ

    Lisa – first off why don’t you check the spelling/grammar of your blog headers. Second, uh, if I were gay I might find this a bit offensive. Are gays a novelty act – an accessory to consider? What’s next, citing who your black (or hispanic, or disabled best friend would be)?

  • Broadway Baby

    DAMMIT! I thought I could claim Slezak but eventgal beat me to him. You slut. (just trying to outsnark you to steal your man) ;)

  • Editor

    Good catch, JJ. Sorry for the stoooopid typo!

  • Sarah

    I would definately have to say Darren Hayes. He is just darling!!

  • Silv

    I’m totally with you on Mario Cantone. He’s hilarious and the only reason I’d care to watch the View. His commentaries on awards show leave me in hysterical laughter.

  • MK

    I’m taking Kevin Walker from Brothers and Sisters. Sure, he can be a little whiny, but the wit and snark (okay, and the most adorable proposal I’ve ever heard in my life) more than make up for it. Plus, his brother Justin could be my real boyfriend.

  • I’m with JJ

    Don’t want to get super-PC but gay boyfriends? WTF? Could we be anymore cliche?

  • NineDaves

    oh come on jj and i’m with jj. it’s not that serious. i’m a mo and i am not whatsoever insulted by this. after all, i have dream straight boyfriends. why can’t girls feel the same way?
    oh, and lisa – i’ll see your marco and raise you a dylan! don’t get me wrong, i love me some marco. but dylan’s always got some sort of athletic tool in his hands (hockey stick, football, etc). it’s oddly hot.

  • coco

    Mark from Ugly Betty.
    He will ge tmy all kinds of high end merchandise from Mode’s closet.
    And to JJ, please don’t be offended. I am latina and I will love to see a post on latinos BFF.

  • coco

    can i have slezak too!
    one of my dreams i to spend a day watching dvr’rd shows with him while drinking margaritas!

  • econruth

    I had no idea that Mario was that funny! I laughed so hard at his DA impression that I choked on my lunch.

  • rebecca

    Okay, strictly speaking he’s bi, not gay, but what about Ianto Jones from Torchwood? He looks great in a suit, makes amazing coffee, and has a talent for snarky one-liners. He can also be extremely bad-ass with a stun gun when it’s called for. Ianto, we can be BFFs any day.

  • Christa

    I love Marco, and I’m so glad he’s on your list. He can dish gossip, put together great outfits, and teach you how to play poker, all while wearing a great hat.
    Mine is John Barrowman. Just so I could stare at him all day long. So pretty.

  • Steph

    The lovely Michael Slezak – seriously, I would love nothing more than to watch a Tuesday night episode of American Idol with a bottle of wine and Michael – a girl can dream!!
