HBO Max' 12 Dates of Christmas with Corey Lay

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

HBO Max continues its quest to represent the LGBTQ community in a wide variety of programming. To add to the mix of We’re Here, Equal, and Legendary, they have added a delicious holiday treat that is our current Christmas guilty pleasure. While stuck at home with nothing to do but post selfies and watch TV, what better way to pass the time than with some holiday cheesiness and a side of fun drama? HBO’s Max 12 Dates of Christmas, set in a stunning winter wonderland, follows three hopelessly romantic singles on their journey to meet that special someone to bring home for the holidays. The show features Garrett, a gay man looking for love. 

Corey Lay, a video game and app developer & fitness trainer, was among the contestants to try his hand at love. And while he didn’t make it to the end, he made a long-lasting emotional impression on the show. In showing his emotions, he hopes to be an example for younger people watching that it’s ok to put your emotions on display, not a weakness. Corey is an LGBTQ and black community activist with an adorable smile and winning attitude…we’d gladly spend New Year’s Eve with him…and even longer.

We chatted with Corey about finding love on reality TV, first date red flags, respecting yourself in the dating world, showing your feelings, and we tackled the hot topic of putting racial preferences on dating apps and in the real world.
