Skin Deep - The Series

LONGTIME READERS of kaos will know that over the years, I've expressed my disappointment at the racial segregation in gay TV series, from Queer As Folk to Noah's Arc. Only Rikki Beadle-Blair's cult drama Metrosexuality was brave enough to depict a world where people don't just mix with "their own kind".

That seems to be changing, with Larry Kennar's promising (and multiracial) DTLA in production, and now David Summers' Skin Deep - The Series is in the works. Take that, Jill Scott!

"Skin Deep - The Series is a new scripted TV pilot that addresses racial and cultural differences within the gay community specifically in Atlanta. In short, it can best be described as Queer as Folk, meets Noah's Arc, meets Crash, taken to a new and vibrant level. The arc of the show will take us into the lives of three black men and three white men. The supporting characters will extend off into other racial arenas such as Asian and Latino, and will build as the series evolves."

Exciting stuff, and a project that deserves all our support.

But I can see a lot of the black gay blogs, and especially their followers, hating seeing "the brothas" getting down with white dudes.

They will get over it... For Black people we had Noahs Arc, the white guys had Queer as folk and numerous others, One interracial storyline isnt going to kill anyone...We as a whole need to get over the segregation within our community and accept and educate ourselves about the facets of our community that we "dont like" or "dont understand" Love is Love regardless of who its between...

America is not ready for it, and that is exactly why they need to see it.

I'm not saying no individual in America at all, but on the whole I think it's going to make a lot of waves.
