The second season of the British gay camp comedy series Beautiful People premieres June 12 on gay cabler Logo.

Beautiful People is the BBC Two comedy series that stars an effeminate 13-year-old schoolboy desperate to whitewash his homely – yet offbeat – family and live with the “beautiful people” of London.

The story is told in a series of flashbacks from present day New York City, where Barneys window-dresser Simon Doonan relives stories from his childhood in 1997 Reading, England to his assistant-turned-boyfriend Sacha.

In Reading, he shares his dream of escape and being fabulous with his friend Kyle, who Simon calls Kylie.

Thirteen-year-old Simon is played by Luke Ward-Wilkinson, and adult Simon by Samuel Barnett in New York scenes.

Season two picks up where the first left off. Brokenhearted adult Simon returns home after breaking up with his boyfriend Sacha in New York City.

In a 2008 interview, the real Simon Doonan, whose memoir is the basis for the series, said of the show: “The message of the show is very Wizard Of Oz – there's no place like home. Where are the beautiful people? Well, it's probably your blind auntie that you grew up with.”

Last time the Brits exported a pink-hot camp comedy it was Absolutely Fabulous, a fact MTV-owned Logo is counting on.

Logo has posted season one's six episodes on its website for all to enjoy.
