Don’t Quit Your Gay Job host Rob Easton with contestants Tommy D and Adam Rollins.


Don’t Quit Your Gay Job

The premise: every episode finds Adam and Tommy trying out a new profession. They meet with an expert and that person teaches the tricks of the trade. Then the boys compete to see whom does it better.

Don’t Quit Your Gay Job showcases the personal successes and humiliating disappointments of these two friends as they strive to find themselves and new perspectives while learning about gay life on the job.

From pounding the beat with the local Police Department to an epic strip performance in Vancouver’s largest gay club to laying smackdowns with Extreme Canadian Champsionship Wrestling, there is nothing these two friends won’t try in their pursuit of the ultimate dream job.

About Rob Easton

Rob Easton can often be seen dancing around in front of a camera, but also behind it, and sometimes even when there are no cameras at all.

Co-host of DQYGJ with his friend Sean since it premiered in 2009, he has also spent a lot of time wandering around Vancouver with a microphone for CBC Radio’s The Early Edition, a camera with Radio-Canada’s Téléjournal Colombie-Briatannique, and a pen with Xtra Vancouver and The Georgia Straight. In addition to wrapping up the new season of DQYGJ, he’s also finishing up with HGTV’s Urban Suburban with Force Four Entertainment as a story editor.

A longtime love of cameras and the stage, Rob has always enjoyed performing whether on his high school’s morning announcements, with his drag queen friends at Cabaret Mado in Montreal, or with Canada’s foremost men’s choir Chor Leoni. Rob grew up on Vancouver Island in Campbell River, where he tries to get to as often as he can. He has a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from the University of Victoria and a Diploma of Technology in Broadcast Journalism from BCIT.

About Sean Horlor

Sean Horlor has tried many careers in his time, including speechwriter, author, man-about-town, blogger, and publicist, but now realizes that making a profession out of trying other professions is truly what makes his boat float. His career bucket list still includes: cruise director, pop singer, back-up dancer, fisherman, stand up comedian, and professional deadbeat.

In early 2011, Sean was selected as a finalist for OUTtv’s Hot Pink Shorts documentary program. His short film, Just the Tip, is set to debut as part of OUTtv’s Hot Pink Shorts: The Making Of television series in Fall 2011. Sean is the co-owner of Steamy Window Productions, a boutique production company based in Vancouver, Canada that specializes in tourism-based video strategies. He also hosts Tourism Vancouver’s Vancouver in a Day online travel series.

Born in Edmonton, Alberta, Sean grew up in Victoria, British Columbia, and currently resides in Vancouver’s West End. He has an undergraduate degree in Fine Arts from the University of Victoria. His first book, Made Beautiful by Use, was published by Signature Editions in 2007.

About Rob Easton

In writing this bio, Rob Easton googled himself to find that lo and behold, he’s still the host of Don’t Quit Your Gay Job. He usually does most of his googling when he’s supposed to be writing, story editing, and producing other reality series. He skis a lot in winter, sits on the beach in summer, and thinks about how depressing it is he’s not skiing or at the beach in spring and fall.During the school year, he works with Out in Schools – a program that engages BC high school students through youth focused film on an anti-bullying, anti-homophobia message. And when not doing any of that, he lives in East Vancouver with his dog, Annie, and his partner, Pablo.

About Adam 

Adam describes himself as an unapologetic, opinionated extrovert. He’s a good-doer behind the scenes and works as a clinical counsellor and mediator but on screen doesn’t hold back and usually annoys far more people than he attracts. He feels this is probably the reason he is perpetually single. A fierce defender on the soccer field and an even angrier vers-top between the sheets, Adam vacillates from one end of the scale to the other depending on what’s asked of him. He’s traveled enough to know there’s more out there than the late-night bar scene but still loves to hang out laughing and joking into the wee hours with his friends. He’s been a writer for homorazzi.com since its inception and enjoys spreading his opinions to an even wider audience on their national tv show of the same name – even if no one’s asked for them.

About Tommy D

Tommy D is an event producer, television host, blogger, comic book nerd,old queen, social media addict and all around big mouth. He started his own production company when he was 23 years old and has grown it into the premier special event company for the LGBT community and their friends. He has also turned his love for voicing his own opinion into a bi-weekly spot on the OUTtv chat show Homorazzi. When he’s not being a big ole gay, you can find him at the local comic store shopping for action figures or sitting at home listening to Shirley Bassey or Bette Middler while watching Steel Magnolias.
