A new black gay web series has surfaced, this time with an unique twist: Vampires. From the producers of the Atlanta based “down low” series, T.R.A.D.E. It All comes what could be a narrative breath of fresh air in the realm of black gay media.

Not to be confused with Cypher Avenue’s own upcoming audio Vampire series, The Season, this new project by Writer/Director Dante Black appears to be an allegory for the pervasiveness of HIV and AIDS spreading in the black gay community.

The series stars model Denerick Lindsey, Channing Harral (T.R.A.D.E IT ALL), Clayton Julian, EJ Peterson, Jevon Loving and Kayin Malik (Actor) as Rashawn Dario.

 

 

Here’s the official synopsis:

From the Creative Mind of Director/Writer, Dante Black. Executive Produced by Media Mogul, DiamondKesawn,
Vampire G is a series that encompases Individuality, Fantasy, Love, Awareness and Everyday Realism.

Nick Antonov, An inspiring writer and hopeless romantic looking to find his soulmate, finds himself opening the portal to the supernatural world when he encounters Blaise Alessandro, whom he believe’s to be the man of his dreams after meeting via a gay dating app.

As we already know in life, nothing is ever what it seems. This holds true as Nick gets to know Blaise and all the elements that come with him. The meaning of Soul Mate is taken to a whole new level when Nick finds out what the Soul of Blaise is really all about.

Vampire G is a groundbreaking new web series created by the Director and Producers of T.R.A.D.E IT ALL.

Vampire G is looking to go outside the box when it comes to LGBTIQ Film and Television Content and test the limits of reality vs. fantasy vs. execution.

Being the first of its kind Vampire G is designed to raise HIV/AIDS awareness by using the context of the show in comparison to the spread of the disease that is multiplying at an alarming rate.

I won’t officially review the series until at least a few episodes are released, however I must say that while I’m not blown away by this pilot, they’ve built up enough good will from the unique premise to make me interested in seeing more.

Unfortunately, though, the series starts off with a black gay man using an app to find a hookup and then calls his flamboyant friend to “spill the tea” about his new future boyfriend, so maybe this won’t be all that new and original after all. However, since it appears that Vampirism is representing sexually transmitted diseases, maybe the stories will be full of depth and metaphor.  Only time will tell.

Embedded below is the first episode called, “Bite Me.”

Given the unique premise, hopefully the rest of the series improves and inspires other black gay web series creators to try something new.

STRAY OBSERVATIONS:

  • The main character actually says: “…His phone number is (404) 555-5555…”
  • Where can I purchase my “female best friend” who only loves to go to clubs for black gay men?
  • 6 whole minutes of this episode are wasted by a character recapping what just happened in the first 8 minutes. Not very efficient storytelling.

    Why do these series have to have such dramatic femme guys all the time? This is extremely low budget but I understand why. The storyline to me is interesting. Hopefully it will improve down the line.

    It has a fem character because its LGBTQ that includes all types of gays. I dont discriminate, there are enough masculine characters in the series. We try to appeal to all audiences and we do understand everyone isn’t going like everything. I wish gay men stop discriminating against one another. This whole masculine vs feminine is getting a little redundant. With that said, thank you for watching and commenting.

      I like the diverse characters, and agree with Dante. I personally am 25% sugar and 75% gunpowder in terms of my feminine and masculine characteristics, respectively. I figure we have both our parents genes and our behavior will reflect both to some degree, even if a narrow society like america will discourage one and encourage the other depending on one’s gender. Those of us who are secure with ourselves appreciate another who may have more sugar than gunpowder or vice verds, I think. Anyway, good series and cypheravenue website is kool too.

    What was up with the wannabe Terry Torro dude? He ruined this the most for me.

    Sooo…I love the idea of this. HOWEVER, the acting is bad and the script is terrible. Does anyone even talk like that? Did these guys rehearse? Take an acting class? It is a start, but compared to some of the other newbies coming out with their own series, it seems like they tried, got good criticism, and incorporated the feedback into their work. I hope it gets better. There is potential here… I think
