Walk on, walk on … and you’ll never walk alone


You watch every episode, you catch yourself singing along to that wretched theme song and pleading out loud with the more irritating characters … well, now’s your chance to be a part of it all.

This week you can bid on eBay for a walk-on role on The L Word. The highest bidder gets to appear in an upcoming episode and can even bring along one friend (perhaps a way to finally woo that cute girl with the psycho-crush on Alice, hmm?).

And according to Showtime, the winner also gets “VIP backstage treatment,” a phrase I admit makes me feel like Butthead. Apparently what that actually entails is meeting the actors who are on set that day (pray that it not be a Jenny scene!), having lunch with the crew (I’m picturing some dorky boom operator guy with a lesbian fixation, but maybe you’d get to raid the craft services table with some hot, young production assistant), and a guided tour of the Vancouver set (airfare presumably not included). They also throw in an L Word DVD package from Wolfe Video.

You really have to pony up for it, though. When I last checked the highest bid was $5,600. But the proceeds — all of ’em — go to Queer Lounge, which is a nonprofit that provides a swanky homo presence at major film festivals and works to build “mainstream” audiences for queer film.


The auction closes Jan. 8 at 10:30 p.m. (PST).
