    As a film maker / content creator, you want to show non-heterosexual Black men in a different non-stereotypical light. Meaning, we're not all overly flamboyant, side kicks, hair dressers, drag queens, messy and rachet....but you created this show that is full of the things you described?

    Can someone explain how the fuck does this make sense?

    I am really confused about Atlanta now...and what is that man wearing with the long ponytail??? He has pretty hair though.

    The guy with the gold hair reminds me of Mystique for some reason at the beginning?? Maybe it's his walk.

    The night camping scene was kinda scary.

    I've never been to a ballroom or shaderoom but I've seen YouTube videos. All this makes me really curious about LGBT in Atlanta, but also brings back eerie experiences in Houston...

    I've never heard of this show before.

    That scene where the guy in red is on the bed with his friend talking about his dad..His facial expressions are hilarious!

    @Jai a corset. He's wearing a fuckin corset. How'd he get it? The blonde with the see-through shirt with arm bangles mugged Kim Kardashian and gifted it to the dude with the long-ass pony tail situation. And now he's wearing it on your screen. He's wearing it on my screen. And soon we'll all buy corsets and live happily-ever after.

    I've never even seen a man wear a corset before and I thought you usually wear something under it. His chesticles were showing. I mean I don't wanna knock his style but it looks painful to wear.

    What have you seen in Houston? You from Houston @Jai ? I was born and raised in Houston but never really knew how to find the black gay community. I feel like in Atlanta that it is super easy to find black gays.

    Oh no. I'm a Louisiana Boi all the way but if you want me to be honest with you, I lived in Houston for a little bit. Lets just say I went to Splash one year with some string undies and a crop top on and the picture mysteriously got back to my cousin somehow. Anyways...the horror side of my H-town afair.

    In Houston, I had a lot of horrible experiences learning about "gay culture". It was mostly my fault since I was a young naive country boy lead by a Disney happily ever after mentality....but I mean between the "Gay mamas and Daddies", (gay families), aggressive drag queens, folks sleeping with each other, fighting, alcohol, people dying of mysterious diseases, stealing, folks living beyond their means and all that. It was something else.

    I wasn't particularly in it as much as I was around the environment but back when I first came. I met this real estate guy who wanted to be my "gay daddy". He had about five other boys already, with one that wanted to be just like him. Shaved his head and all! When I was fresh and new to the family, we went to the mall. This was my first time seeing men put on "makeup" to go out. While in the mall, he was dressed and the others were dressed "pretty" or somewhat effeminate.

    I was just regular me, dressed nice and neat, like I am to this day but I had a lil country in my style. However, I noticed that they began to twist hard, and throw their heads and hands left and right & people started looking. I was not accustomed to this, so I felt embarrassed. He then turned and told me.."You are gay. Don't be ashamed of it, flaunt it. Twist if you want and be you. Ain't nobody Gon do shit. Let them look. They just mad" I started to slow my pace down as they walked ahead because I still felt ashamed and out of place, but since I was a young kid trying to flee from home (and yes, my real mom sheltered me badly), I didnt change who I was but I delt with it for a long while. I eventually got into a heated argument with him one night and he pulled my hair (when I used to get my cornrows back in the day..I had longer hair before I cut it.) This story also has insight on why I love cats so much. But that didn't turn out well at all. In fact, I believe I was emotionally destroyed then.

    Another incident happened a year or so later when I got my own place with my "gay brother", who decided he wanted to become a woman. Long story short, there was unpaid bills, a trade boy that lied about his age, robbery, trade boy's upset mom knocking on my front door talking bout she heard her son been hanging with some "punks", gay brother's friend and her boyfriend mysteriously moving in, same girl trying to stab the guy I was "dating". My dumb self jumped in front of her and she yelled for me to move because I was to good for him....

    I could write an entire book series on the things I saw and experienced in Houston. It was a very haunting and tramautic period in my youth but eh, I'm still here though. Healthy, creative and still sensible ole me, though I will say I've picked up a slight edge to my personality. I'm also very weary of "the lifestyle".

    Somehow I drifted on to Cypher Avenue and saw something a little bit more different so to say.

    (This is not a fem bash thing. I don't have any hatred towards them.)

    The only thing I can think of is the creator of this is so wrapped in their insular gay bubble they don't realize this is actually quite stereotypical. It was the standard "reality show" format with the standard images of black gays. Which is to say nothing but flamboyant or vaguely flamboyant dudes.....lots of arched eyebrows, make-up, dyed hair, overly groomed metrosexual looks. I didn't see anything masculine or non-stereotypical.

    Dude is wearing a 'waist trainer' as regular clothing. Like literally wearing underwear as casual wear.

    These look like the stereotypical Atlanta gay male to me. What is supposed to be different?

    Is it hard to find masculine men in ATL? Lol. I think he's so entangled in his own lifestyle that he can't portray the other areas of LGBT. He's accustomed to his ways.

    People want to see themselves reflected on the screen big and small. Clearly, this is a depiction of Black Atlanta Gays. I also think this is particular series is model after Mona Scotts "Real insert name of Random City with a hip-hop twist"

    My God. Everyone's intro into "the life" has been different from my own for the most part. Everyone has just really been super nice to me and my twin brother in ATL especially. People have looked out for us and they've been so kind. I'm going to really miss ATL because I honestly don't know how to make moves in the black gay community in Houston while living with my parents again. UGH.

    :dead1: At imagining you in this. lol. Hell you would look stereotypical as fuk but would probably look hot-unlike this guy. And seeing all of "that"..and then seeing the slight bulge in the crotch as well...

    :khart2::sadbron:

    I would not know what gender that is, and would probably be called a bigot for not knowing or even thinking in terms of 'gender' since we really do not know what gender we are anymore

    Most people would need to take a course in this just to learn this smh. I seriously don't know what some of these are. What are Androgyne, Aliagender, and Demiboy? Isn't it binary gender oppression to label "Genderfluid" as only an example of female and male, and not of a mix of the other genders too? lol.

    *you ready for that 5-10 inches of snow and 40mph winds followed by 0 degrees?

    As a default, using a female pronoun is always the safe bet.

    Oh, you're so nice. Fine. I'll knock whatever the fuck that 'style' is. Atrocious. Ridiculous. Ludicrous. He needs that under a T-shirt. And if not, he needs to just be Kim Kardashian. Which is what he's going for anyways. Ugggghhhhh.

    Yeah. It doesn't look nice at all to be wearing it. If I saw something like that in public I would turn a blind eye to it if I don't have anything nice to say.

    I'm not 'disgusted' by it, I find it very awkward and not suitable for him but I'm guessing he is transitioning into a woman? It would be appropriate if he wore something over it.

    And I know it be hot in ATL like it do here. I know they gotta be hot in that.

    Since that guy got fat within him taken out, Im sure he's going to get his peen nipped? I wonder how much all this will cost. Hell probably get facial surgery to see he still looks like a man in the face. I think it's a waste of money but it is his/her money so...

    I once knew of a hybrid (is it offensive to say that?) named Gregnesha, she's gone now (dead). I remember someone telling me that she was a street walker (@ the time I didn't know what that even was) and that the "bug" got her. Anyways, I can bet if he/she was still alive today, they'd be definitely apart of their wardrobe, with heels too probably.

    I don't know what many of them are... Neutrois? Sounds like part of a French atom. smh.
    LOL Anchorage was in the 40's today, while Charleston South Carolina got 5 inches of snow downtown and it snowed in Tallahassee. Get ready as it seems to be ready to bomb out-the air coming in is super cold- but the waters of the Gulf Stream off North Carolina are 77 degrees F.

    Hell just layer up in a rainbow colored romphim, some leopard print jeggings, expensive skinny jeans full of holes, and of course as many corsets and flouncy blouses as possible lol. Too bad pantyhose went "out" as it at least they had insulating qualities.

    Looking at the episode I would be confused to find the aforementioned "masculine" dudes they were speaking of. Not one to judge on just one episode, I looked at the rest of the episodes and found the direct opposite.

    So I have drawn several revelations,
    1. they have different criteria for what they described as masculine and non-sassy
    2. They tried but failed to portray themselves as how they described
    3. They were talking about a possible future project, not this one
    4. They have one a negative opinion of sassy culture and therefore probably themselves
    5. They have asses that their audience has the same view as them,
    6. they know their audience still wants to watch the sassy drama

    And Gawd help me, I watched the reunion of this show to get a good feeling of what is was really about.

    ^^ Shit I forgot what event that was. I deleted it so just delete your post of it or ask Ocky or Nick to do it if you can't. Sorry. No bad intentions-just forgot what that was with regards to 'trainwreck' and all.

    *the other thing was just a damn stunt from wayyyy back in the day.

    Plus nobody died in that reunion show but could have given how it ended in a kind of brawl-but everybody must not have forgotten to bring their 'I will cut a bitch" knives.

    @ColumbusGuy No harm done. I was simply pulling your chain since the accident occurred recently. I'll edit my post when my iPad starts acting right or when I get home tonight.
