    I missed the whole conversation because I'm not interested in this show. Lol Y'all making good points.


    While I am not interested I will say that the fact that similarly to this type of lifestyle show, HGTVs buddy/couple shows do not feature any gay people is interesting considering how gays love design.

    Here's a break down of HGTVs line up :

    Mom and daughter
    Twin brothers
    Married couple
    Married couple
    Formerly married couple
    Unrelated heterosexual couple with love hate rivalry with slight sexual tension but not really

    And

    The black lady show
    The gay guy's show

    Neither of which are a part of the buddy format.

    It would kill them to have a lead where the buddies were gays apparently or POC.

    They'd probably kill both with one stone.

    I don't think a masculine leaning Black male show would be bad. There's drama just different drama. What you wouldn't get is a bunch of theatrics and camp.

    There was some new show with a young white southern couple (twang and all), whose first couple of episodes seem to feature SGL millennial couples. I thought it was a good way to show, yes, lgbt folk live south of the Mason-Dixon Line, and not all white heterosexual couples are bible thumping yahoos (cough cough Fixer Upper cough).

    Then they lose my with that “Christina on the Coast” wannabe VH1 bullshit. At least they try occasionally (such as the black couple in Nashville whose show didn’t last, or the recent Chicago-based disaster). But getting on my soapbox again, a renovation show would be way easier for enterprising black masculine gay content creators to do than a scripted fictional production. I was in a construction unit in the military. Anyone want to Kickstart me? Lmao

    Well there's Nate Berkus and his husband Jerermiah show on TLC involving interior design. I know we're mainly talking about black folk gays, but just wanted to throw them out there in case you didn't know. They are really good with design.

    SIDE NOTE - You know what, throughout this conversation I realized I'm going to support the FUCK out of these black gay men who has a show on Netflix. That shit is unprecedented on multiple levels being that it is a black couple, a black gay couple, and a black gay male couple showing how they are entrepreneurs, open and confident in who they are, and love each other.

    Effeminate characteristics may be less than ideal as well as stereotypical gay careers, but at the end of the day my personal opinion is that we as black folk are NOT in the position to not support one another. And DEFINITELY not in the position as black gay folk. We still dont have that "luxury"! Even tho we have practiced not supporting each other in many ways throughout the years, (which will continue to play a part with our position in society.) As a black gay man im actually embarrassed if I ever had a second thought of not supporting these men. I'll be watching every episode.
