If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen…
You might have noticed that Queer Eye’s resident food and wine guy Antoni Porowski is one of our cover stars for the May 2018 issue of Gay Times.
When we released Antoni’s cover image earlier this week, the reaction on social media firmly placed his as the pin-up of the Netflix reality series.
But ahead of the issue’s official release next week (you can pre-order your copy here, by the way), we have one more treat for you.
Did you really think we’d capture Antoni on set in New York City for the magazine without making sure a camera person was there to get it all on film?
In this behind-the-scenes video of his Gay Times shoot, there’s plenty of Antoni working it for the camera, flashing that perfect smile, and even a very special guest in the form of an adorable corgi.
During his cover interview, Antoni opened up about how being on the show and hanging around with Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Tan France and Jonathan Van Ness has helped him open up and embrace queer culture.
“When I first started telling people about the show, I would embarrassingly catch myself whispering ‘Queer’ as though… I don’t know if I was embarrassed or I had some kind of shame, but it still felt taboo from childhood,” he tells us.
“It’s kind of nice because now I say it really confidently. The more you immerse yourself in something, the less precious it gets.”
You can read the full interview with Antoni in the May 2018 issue of Gay Times, which is available to pre-order here.
The issue also features Dexter Mayfield, The Walking Dead star Danile Newman, Fischerspooner frontman Casey Spooner, and Desmond Is Amazing – the ten year old Drag Queen of our dreams.
