Boy Meets Boy is an American reality television show in which a gay man met and chose a mate from a group of 15 potential male suitors.
He's also a transgender advocate and ambassador for All About Trans, and co-created the series of short documentary films 'My Trans Story' which is available to watch on 4OD.
