Danny Roberts

Danny Roberts (born July 19, 1977 in Rockmart, Georgia) is best known for appearing on The Real World: New Orleans in 2000. He started a relationship with a man named Paul, who was a captain in the US Army at the time, stationed in Vicenza, Italy. Because of the U.S. Military "Don't ask, don't tell" policy toward homosexuals, Paul's face was obscured on TV and much national attention was brought to the issue. In early 2004 MTV aired a special where Paul (then out of the military) revealed his face for the first time and the policy and its effects were discussed.

Roberts made a few post-Real World appearances on television such as Dawson's Creek, and hosted the DVD collection of gay-themed short films, Boy's Briefs.

Roberts now speaks at schools across the country on diversity in sexuality, coming out and the military's "Don't ask, Don't tell" policy, and currently lives in New York and works for Conde Nast Publications.
