What the fuck is the gay and wonderous life of caleb gallo
Catie Byrne Features Editor. There have been a variety of shows with a focus on gay life on network television.

About to head to her house to play an intentionally stereotypical gay best friend to get her one-night stand to leave, he hangs up and exclaims, "Oh my god, my car is such a fucking joke. It's a random, near three-minute vignette that's as concurrently bizarre and dynamic as the rest of the series, one of the best to debut on YouTube this year.
