TLC is back in the news and this time for its special show My Husband's Not Gay in which four men will openly discuss their feelings for other men.

The show will throw light on the life of three married men and one bachelor who will discuss their same sex attraction while also being in a relationship with a woman.

In the 90-second promo released by TLC, one man who is single, talks openly about himself as gay but still wants to marry a woman. While another says "I'm attracted to my wife, for sure, and I'm definitely attracted to men, too."

"There's no marriage that's perfect. But with our faith in God we believe we can overcome anything," adds another.

One cast member went on to say "I want to marry a woman but I don't know how to work out these feelings."

However, the men do not refer to themselves as gay or homosexual and keep on mentioning that they have 'same-sex attraction.'

The show synopsis of TLC's controversial show reads: Four men living in Salt Lake City, Utah, who don't identify themselves as homosexual despite having an attraction to men.

In the trailer, the married men can be seen discussing their sexuality 'issues' which they can overcome through faith in God.

The promo of the much anticipated TLC show has attracted a lot of criticism for being anti gay.

Mary Elizabeth Williams of Salon said, "bottom-feeding vortex of sadness network TLC is serving up a reality special in January.

In the promo for the show, the 'Not,' of course, is cheekily dropped in between 'Husband' and 'Gay' as a winking afterthought."

Think Progress says the "whole enterprise made you feel uncomfortable and vaguely sad."

My Husband's Not Gay airs on 11 January on TLC network.
