Calling your show ‘Gays: The Series’ is a slightly bold move, but it’s almost surprising someone hasn’t done it before. The one that’s done it is a web series about friends in New York. A couple of months ago the first two episodes were released, and now they’ve been followed by episodes three and four, with premiered on March 16th.
And you can watch all the episodes so far below!
The release has been deliberately chosen to coincide with the US launch of a new series of HBO’s Girls, although the makers are keen to point out that they hope Gays will reach a similar, if broader, crowd. Though the lead characters can be defined as gay, ‘the series aims to transcend labels, rather conveying the struggles that any group 20-something friends faces when living and working in NYC. Episodes three and four take us deeper into the lives of this relatable, flawed and funny group.’
“I wanted to create a show that followed the lives of four men who happened to be gay, but the show was actually about the bigger universal aspects of life that all of us people deal with: love, work problems, friendship, family, etc.,“ remarks Peter William Dunn, the native New Yorker who conceived and penned GAYS. “The most fascinating thing with people is that we’re all so different, yet we’re all so shockingly the same That’s what I hope viewers will take away from the show, the realization that the LGBT characters in GAYS are relatable, real and emotionally accessible to everyone, no matter sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.”
