Monday Morning Man: Danny Roberts!

Well what gay man over the age of 30 doesn’t remember Danny Roberts from MTV’s The Real World: New Orleans in 2000?

Even Neil Patrick Harris said, in his first post coming out interview, how inspired he had been by Danny and how the then 22 year old was living his life out and proud on national television.

Danny, now 37, was also in a relationship with US Army captain Paul Dill whose face had to be obscured on the show because of the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy which would not be repealed for another decade.

He and Dill broke up in 2006 and Danny lived a low-profile life in Seattle. He has since moved to Atlanta where he works in human resource recruiting for an email software company.

But he makes occasional forays back into the spotlight like last year’s reunion of some Real World cast members on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live. Two years earlier I met Danny in Hollywood for the premiere of the TV series DTLA in which his character has a steamy affair with a man played by Darryl Stephens.

3 Remarks

  1. LOVED him with Darryl Stephens in DTLA. Sorry the show didn’t continue.

  2. Danny was so hot! That was a great season of Real World. I don’t even know if Real World is still on. I kinda lost interest after that season he was on.

  3. Very Lucky to call him a Pal!
