Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta Adds First Gay Male Couple

Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta stars come and go. Sometimes, they get arrested.

But now the series is promising two brand new additions who are bringing a lot to the table in the new season.

These two men will be the show’s first male gay couple.

Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta is adding some fresh faces to the cast.

More importantly, the hit reality series is adding some overdue represenation in the form of a male gay couple.

Prince Carter and Zachary Jones have confirmed through their reps that they are joining the cast of the show.

Carter is a serious socialite in Atlanta and already involved with the show.

Jones is a fashion model with quite the Instagram following (for reasons that his photos make obvious).

Together, they’re going to take this show by storm.

Speaking to The Blast, the couple talks about how important it is for them to be part of the show.

“As an African American gay male couple it’s tough as hell in today’s society,” they point out.

Both black men and gay men face challenges — being both doesn’t make things easier.

“And,” the couple continues. “There are sooooooooooo many stigmas we’re up against.”

“We are two big personalities,” they say. “Who just happens to love each other dearly.”

The couple’s statement about their aspirations continues.

“With this platform,” they tell The Blast. “We want to show that love has no face or color.”

“But love is all about treating others with respect,” they affirm.

That is definitely true.

They note that love is also about “allowing people to just live their best lives.”

Also true!

Carter and Jones are excited about bringing male gay representation to the show.

They’re looking forward to presenting a “Gay relationship in more of a positive light.”

Reality television has an unfortunate habit of showing some already marginalzied groups in a negative light.

Seeing two young, handsome black men who are in love and living their best lives could do wonders for viewers and for cultural perceptions.

Representation matters for a number of reasons, and can have a real impact on how comfortable viewers are with coming forward to live their authentic lives.

Plus, it’s great to see LGBTQ+ black men shown succeeding on television.

As we mentioned, Prince Carter is a socialite and has already interviewed a number of the show’s stars.

Those stars include Mimi Faust, Karlie Redd, Momma Dee, Bambi, and Erica Dixon.

So he is already part of the community and will now get to be part of it on camera, too.

Jones’ modeling has earned him a massive social media following.

As we mentioned, one only has to look at his Instagram thirst traps to understand why.

Wait, what was I saying? I lost my train of thought somehow.

We should note that while Carter and Jones are this show’s first male couple, they’re not the first gay representation in the franchise — or even the first male rep.

Miles Brock and Milan Christopher were featured on Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood back in 2015.

It’s glad to see that the franchise’s Atlanta counterpart is catching up!


Trump Suggests Lunch With Kanye West Will Help with African-American Male Voters

Donald Trump says he values Kanye West’s passion for prison reform, but he sure sounded like the real reason for his lunch with Ye is because the rapper is a magnet for male African-American voters. Trump was on “Fox & Friends” Thursday AM and…


Donald Trump Jr. Mocks Male Lingerie as Indictment Rumors Swirl

You would think that Donald Trump, Jr. would have bigger things on his mind, like his rumored engagement to Kimberly Guilfoyle or the mounting likelihood that he will be indicted.

Instead, he seems preoccupied by what kind of underwear other men are wearing.

We’re not kidding — he’s actually tweeting about it.

Okay, so this is what happened.

HommeMystere is a lingerie brand based in Queensland, Australia.

Their products include lacy undergarments designed specifically for men

The Daily Mirror ran a story on the products, discussing how some straight men wear those clothes in the bedroom with their wives or girlfriends.

Instead of just noting that the product exists like a normal person, Don Jr. decided to discuss it with his Twitter followers.

Donald Trump Jr lingerie tweet

“Maybe on Halloween or if you lose a bet really badly…” Don Jr.’s tweet reads, suggesting when he thought that such attire would be appropriate.

(Lingerie on its own is not normally considered an appropriate Halloween outfit. Just a friendly PSA)

“Ah who am I kidding,” he continues. “Not even then.”

He then asks a strange question: “Who is pushing this garbage?”

In real life, we know that the product exists because there’s a market for it. We know that Don Jr. is no business expert, but surely he understands that people create goods to sell to customers.

We’re never going to accuse Don Jr. of being some sort of master strategist, but it may be that this tweet is his version of a calculated move.

A lot of Trump’s base, rather than focusing on his lack of accomplishments, instead focuses on what they view as the alternative to Trump.

In the minds of many parts of his base, Trump is mostly just a symbol of very hardline definitions of masculinity and identity.

If he aimed to rile up Trump’s most ardent, insecure supporters, then he was successful.

“Of course it is!” one of his followers tweeted. “Nothing like a bit of deliberate identity-eroding agenda pushing in the MSM these days…every day. S–t like this is why [Trump] won.”

He might feel pressured to remind his base what the alleged alternative to his father is because, well, Don Jr. might get indicted soon.

Manafort was convicted on 8 counts. Michael Cohen flipped on Trump and agreed to a plea deal that includes prison time.

As more and more people in Trump’s orbit are targets of Mueller’s investigation, rumors swirl that Don Jr. may be one of the next dominoes to fall.

Is he afraid that he’ll face consequences for his actions for the first time in his life?

Some wonder if he is even aware of that he is in the crosshairs of justice. Others think that all of this speculation about “who’s next” is just wishful thinking.

Don Jr. being a jerk about what other people do in the bedroom is pretty standard for him. The rotten apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

It sounds like, if Kimberly Guilfoyle secretly harbors a kink of seeing her man all dolled up in lace, she’ll be sorely disappointed.

Or maybe not — if someone like Don Jr. were to do anything of the sort, he might feel a need to … what’s the opposite of virtue signaling? Malice signaling? … mock it online.

(Like your friend who says “who likes that kink” very loudly on social media and then, six months later, confides in you that they, in fact, like that kink)

But whatever Don Jr. does in the privacy of his bedroom is none of our business.

But if what he does is illegal, then it may become Robert Mueller’s business in the not-so-distant future.
