“A natural roller coaster ride that is filled with highs and lows – the glitz and glam of the fashion industry meets the raw emotions that are destined to be revealed.”
On Mekahel’s Comments
“As with many reality shows, the storyline has evolved because my life is forever changing. For season 2, I chose to offer more private moments from my life. I think we kicked up the excitement level a bit with the lead up to my wedding ceremony in Paris all while moving across the country to Los Angeles and running my company! Life is drama and that is something that just comes effortlessly to me.
It’s obvious that I’m a ‘fame monster,’ so I definitely enjoying having cameras around me all the time but what truly keeps me going with this show is being able to set an example as a successful, openly queer man. It’s so important to me to be able to reach LGBTQ people across the globe on Revry who might not see themselves portrayed on TV–let alone as the star of their own reality show–and show them that our LGBTQ lives are just as real, relatable, and important as our straight counterparts.”
Subscribers of Revry Premium (Revry’s subscription on-demand offering) can watch the second season premiere of PUTTING ON starting July 3rd on the Revry network (available on iOS, tvOS, Android, Android TV, Fire TV, Roku, Samsung and the web at www.revry.tv).
