'Gay Sex And The City' HBO Pilot Filming In San Francisco
Just like its Girls and Sex and the City predecessors, this untitled project features a group of friends as they try to find footing in a concrete jungle. But these boys are a bit older than their Girls counterparts, so here’s to hoping for less woe-is-me angst and more adult-driven trivialities.
And I hope they're not all flamboyant "fabulous" queens and shallow fashion-obsessed twinks, or gym-obsessed muscle-marys.
I'd love to have a show about gay people that wasn't just pure stereotyping. It'd be nice to have a gay character I could relate to for once in my life.
"But these boys are a bit older than their Girls counterparts"
Making them clinically dead
Agree, R1. Since it's HBO, maybe there's hope.
A gay Sex in the City? Isn't that a bit redundant?
Don't like the title. It should be called The Urban Rimming Brigade instead.
It sounds horrid, but maybe not.
Young gay men can't afford to move to SF these days.
It sounds like that YouTube series Old Dogs, It's a fun show but the episodes are only like 5 minutes long it's written by and stars openly gay guys(well except for the fake British rocker, he's actually straight) Oh and David Pevsner has quite a few photos with his nicely proportioned cock hanging out. :)
Quick question and maybe someone could start a thread about this but who do DLers enjoy watching on YouTube? There don't seem to be many gay people posting videos there except for Davey Wavy and a few Davey wanna bes.
I think David Pevsner is really attractive, If I ran this show I'd have him as naked as possible as often as possible! I still don't understand why a gay series created by gay men would choose a straight actor to play the most sexualized part in the whole series.
Older? How in the world?
Sounds like The Outs, shame they didn't just make that into a TV show.
HBO is behind the times. They seem locked on archaic depictions of gay men. How about a depiction of a thoroughly masculine bisexual or gay athlete, like a football player or rapper? How about a Hispanic masculine dude who is on the down low or coming to terms with his interest in men? HBO seems to have a retro agenda in its depictions of gay dudes.
Oh yes, a show all about cowering closet-cases on the down-low. That sure would be inspiring.
Why did Pevsner come up? Is he in the show?
He has made a career out of dropping trou.
This show will only work if it features hot young male extras as lovers, play things, etc.
In this youth obsessed culture nobody wants to really see what their future holds for them. Unless it's something camp like the Golden Girls.
ugh, not another dumb paint-by-numbers gay stereotype show
R1, what would make the character relatable for you?

It's Sex And The City. Not in. You probably type "should of" and "would of", don't you?
[quote]How about a Hispanic masculine dude who is on the down low or coming to terms with his interest in men?
Like Omar in The Wire? Or Keith in Six Feet Under? How about the dozens of gays in Oz?
Is there a part for me?
r23, I wonder if this series will be ethnically diverse
r25 Don't hold your breath.
Oh yeah, dude!
REPORT: HBO and John Legend to Develop "Down Low" Rapper Drama
Yaasss. Now that The L.A. Complex has gone into the digital sunset ...
2013_04_18_JOHN LEGENDHBO, R20 fave and singer-songwriter deluxe John Legend and producer-director Tony Krantz are developing a new project featuring a "down low" gay rapper, reports Deadline.
Down Lo [is] set in Miami’s South Beach. [T]he edgy ensemble drama explores the intersection of three worlds — the party town’s popular music scene, sports and fashion circles. It deals with fame and secrets, with the stories told from multiple points of view. One of them will be that of a gay rapper living on the down low as homosexuality is still not readily accepted in the hip-hop community.
This could be a winner. The nine-times Grammy Award-winning Legend is ridiculously talented, super stylish and also a fierce progressive and vocal LGBT ally. Krantz was the executive producer of 24 during its height in the early 2000s. Most people would go the cheap and messy route—but I don't see it happening with this team.
John Legend is gay. He has a great pair of tits - a little hairy with big, sensitive nipples.
Re: john l. Down low series.
That's coming out of left field.
John Legend is producing an HBO series partially about a rapper who is on the DL. So, there will be masculine bi/gay representation on HBO.
David Pevsner is a sweet guy, I knew him years ago in NYC. He's better looking now than he was in his 20s.
I hope it's like Queer As Folk. I miss that show.
Hope there are some gaybros on the shows instead of the stereotypical embarrassing queens.
They need a hot bisexual jock character. Masculine
I hope they have gaybros who are into Judy and some femmes that are into amateur mechanics.

Did you see The L.A. Complex? There was a terrific storyline about a gay rapper who couldn't come to terms with his gayosity. Unfortunately, it was canceled after two seasons, and we never got to see the resolution of Kal's storyline. Here's Andra Fuller, the actor's, imdb page:
Let me guess - they're all white with the possible exception of a token so-called minority.
But white people are the majority.
The opposite isn't going to be portrayed unless the show is made by minority folks.
Sorry R24, they said younger.
So says the bigot at r38.
HBO has been on fire lately with their programming. I doubt they would have green-lighted this project if it were just another "Queer as Folk" rehash. HBO has become known for smart, savvy, character driven dramas. This could actually be really good and the REAL "revolutionary" depiction of gay men that we've been waiting for.
John Legend is producing a drama about a DOWN LOW RAPPER?!
Has he officially come out of the closet? Did I miss something? Or is this an example of "hiding out in the open"?
Too bad they couldn't get hotter guys for the show. The openly gay dude who's dating Zachary Quinto (sorry, can't remember his name), grosses me out for some reason.. don't know why, he just does. I don't find him attractive. And yes, I know I'm a shallow cunt. I don't care.
Poor R43. Ain't no gettin' into a shallow cunt.
They better have some youngish hot masculine dudes in this.
