If you're a fan of the reality genre or enjoy engaging documentaries about the LGBT community, chances are you're familiar with Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato's body of work. The duo is behind some of television's biggest hits and many GLAAD Media Award-winning and nominated projects, including Becoming Chaz; RuPaul's Drag Race; TransGeneration; Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys; The Strange History of Don't Ask, Don't Tell; Sex Change Hospital and The Fabulous Beekman Boys.
Their accomplishments are being feted today with the release of The World According to Wonder, a coffee table book looking back at the many series and documentaries they have put on the air and celebrating the many "Wowlebrities" they have created along the way.
The World According to Wonder features never-before-seen photographs and exclusive tales of the duo and their many famous friends. The book retraces Fenton and Randy's 21 years at the head of World of Wonder by telling the stories of their successes but also some disappointments as they evolved with the changing landscape of unscripted television.
During their journey they have told the stories of many LGBT people, showing their subjects in a candid and relatable way. From helping Chaz Bono tell his story of transition, to broadcasting the trials and tribulations of a drag queen turned goat farmer and his uptight boyfriend, Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato have reached American living rooms in all corners of the country and along the way have helped foster a better understanding of what it means to be a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender person.
The book is available today on Amazon.com.
