A few weeks ago we brought you the trailer for the new Portuguese web series, Barba Rija (Rough Beard), which gives the country’s hairy gay bears a chance to shine.
Now the first full episode has debuted, which you can watch below.
The plan now is that a new episode will be posted each week, with seven in total for the first season.
Here’s the synopsis: ”Barba Rija (Rough Beard) is the first Portuguese gay short + webseries about bears made for the internet. It follows the lives of three gay friends who are bears but have a soft heart. António, Pedro and Ursão (Big Bear) live in Lisbon. They work, go out at night and get in romantic adventures. Pedro ended up with his boyfriend and is the group´s lovebird. António is the most rational of the three and has a secret passion. Finally, Big Bear is the strongest, but also the sweetest, who will be surprised with a change in his life. It might look like a soap opera but it´s comedy at its best. The three are the symbol of fellowship, of various types of masculinity, affections, concerns and expectations that belong to all human beings. André Murraças, the author (writer and director), is a published author who writes also for theatre and tv and was nominated for a Primetime Emmy.’
