ABTV Loves #GayTwitter: Glen North

This week on AfterBuzz’s #GayTwitter, the panel was joined by Camp Getaway’s counselor with the most glitter, Glen North, to spill tea on the newest addition to the Bravo Network and opened up on his personal experience on the show.

“I know for me, this summer was about connecting with these people. It follows eight camp counselors at adult camp and by the end of summer, these people were some of my best friends. I am so close to some of them, I trust them with my life. We shared an experience that a lot of people don’t go through.”

Due to so many people currently being isolated from their loved ones, Glen brought light to what fans can take away from the show.

“You guys as an audience get to watch us become best friends and in a time where we are so desperate to feel connection and we feel so isolated in our own homes, I think it’s going to be really exciting to watch us connect. It’s sometimes messy, it’s like family. ‘It’s not always sunshine, smores, and smiles’, as David says, but by the end, we’re going to have best friends out of it and I think it’s going to be really exciting.” 

With Pride month just around the corner and no festivals this year, this didn’t stop Glen from planning his own projects and collaborations to celebrate. 

“I’ve been talking to Armit Kapai from Family Karma and I connected with Josiah from Below Deck. We’re actually working on something. I want to do sort of a Bravo roundtable during Pride. We’ll talk about what it’s like to be a queer person on a Bravo show, what our experiences have been like talking with the fans. I want to hear what their reactions to their fans are, especially Armit, his show is so important representation-wise.”

Speaking of Pride, the discussion with Glen couldn’t end without asking why the queer community is so drawn to a network like Bravo.

“I think the thing that draws queer people in, is we love strong women. We live for a strong woman. That’s why all of our pop stars are strong women. All of our mothers, we connected with them as kids. We would be nothing without the fruit flies that took us to prom. Our whole lives have been defined, almost guided by strong women, so I think Bravo does a really good job in highlighting strong women.”
