Finding TV series or movies that offer characters and stories about the complex lives the LGBT community often evokes wishful thinking! Fortunately, for us LGBT web series changed all of that. We can now live vicariously through web series who provide intriguing formats of LGBT reality. Web series are filled with a sprinkled dose of drama and hope and steamy love scenes.  Most of these series are from independent writers, directors, and producers. These new web series run the gamut.  You’ll find documentary series, narratives about LGBT relationships, friendships, life, and in the words of “Tank,” “WHEN WE” scenes…


Our cover feature Brandon Karson is no slouch in the numerous roles he’s starred in.  Most notable his character “Damien” in the web series “About Him,” where his innocent look captured the heart of fans. Brandon gave birth to a character and allowed his character Damien to come of age in surreal moments of  relatable encounters.  Catch Brandon in H.I.M., the series on HereTV Network, a feature film called District, by BawnTV and many other productions.
