Interview: 1 girl 5 gays’ Mike Yerxa Goes Off!

"Stoop, there it is!!!" With Yerxa in NYC.

Mike Yerxa is one of nicest guys ever. Plus, he’s funny, opinionated, sassy, smart, quick, sometimes cantankerous, sharp and totally lovable as one of the outspoken gays on the Logo (and MTV Canada) hit late-night series, “1 girl 5 gays.”

For all of those reasons, when Yerxa was in NYC a couple of weeks ago, we grabbed him, then snagged some stoop space and a video camera to chat one-on-one. In so doing, we learned about Yerxa’s boyfriend, his bestie/castmate Dean, the wackiness of being recognized by fans and drunk Julia Roberts.

Yerxa also dished about cast-mate sex crushes and talking penises. HURRAH!!!


If you need to catch up on 1 girl 5 gays, you can watch weeknights on Logo at 11pm ET. And check out full episodes via

And because I had to go photo-hunting for this post anyway… Below are some cute Yerxa images. If you’re a fan, you’re welcome! Cheers!
