Sherry Vine Launches Queer Network, gaySVTVworld

We Want Our Drag TV
The Internet is getting a whole lot gayer!   International drag darling Sherry Vine and former Here-TV executive Josh Rosenzweig are combining their style, humor and sensibility into a one-stop, digital destination for all of the world’s LGBTQ entertainment needs.  gaySVTVworld premieres February 14 with original shows, specials, music videos, short films and more: all free at YouTube.com/MissSherryVine.

“The world needs gaySVTVworld because they are hungry for original programming from top queer talent,” says Vine, a comedian whose hilarious video parodies have made her a YouTube sensation.  “We got ‘em all: Haus Of Mimosa, Pickles, David Serrano, Chris Semers … and this is only the beginning.”

TBT-Pickles-logo-300x242 Sherry Vine Launches Queer Network, gaySVTVworldgaySVTVworld is created by and for LGBTQ audiences,” adds Josh Rosenzweig. A two-time Emmy Award nominee, Rosenzweig served as SVP of Here TV for ten years where he produced over two hundred hours of television including She’s Living For This, a show that starred Vine.  “Nobody is going to tell our stories like we will. While our visibility has increased enormously over the last decade with the launch of several LGBT television networks, it is essential that the community have an online space to call our own.  A destination where we can go to find like-minded artists and feel the power of the collective.”

While gaySVTVworld draws inspiration from a traditional television model, it also presents a modern digital age spin with all shows under-seven minutes long.  “We’re offering short content so people can view several episodes in the same amount of time as one traditional TV show,” explains Vine.  “Maybe you only have five free minutes on your way to work or during a lunch break.  That’s enough time to catch a hilarious episode of Fashion Puhleez on your smart phone!”

The network will kick off its first season with a slate of eight programs, releasing daily, beginning with Sunday’s Sherry and the Greek, an original talk series starring Vine and Chris Semers, discussing a variety of fun topics and performing skits, characters, and musical numbers.

On Monday, queer notables share their pop culture picks on EduGAYtion.   Then Tuesday, The Rachel Zoe Show meets Project Runway in Fashion Puhleez, with lead players in the beauty industry discussing fashion, club couture and styling.

House of Mimosa presents The Anita & Gina Marie Show, a comedic show that chronicles the daily antics of two women as they cause mayhem throughout Astoria, Queens (singing out – or rather, airing out – all their dirty laundry) gets viewers over hump day.   Then its Throwback Thursdays with Pickles, a look back at a public access show that offers a glimpse into the gay, downtown art and nightlife scene of New York in the nineties.

Celebrate the end of the workweek with The Flames of Hell’s Kitchen, a telanovela about the life of Sherry Vine, her manager Gloria, assistant Busted and sexy Latino boyfriend, Diego.  In the first season, Sherry wins big, loses everything, slips back into a life of drugs, and faces an intervention. The show stars David Serrano, Busted, Patty McKeever and Al McKeever.

Finally, on Saturday, it’s movie night as gaySVTVworld presents The SVTV Short Film Fest, an online festival dedicated to spotlighting the very best LGBTQ filmmakers from around the world.  Each week is a new short film along with interviews from the filmmakers and special bonus features.

In addition, What’s In Your Purse?, a hilarious two-minute segment featuring Vine cornering nightlife celebrities and forcing them to reveal the contents of their bags, will run throughout the week.

“We knew launching a network was an ambitious endeavor but there are so many things we didn’t think of,” admits Vine.  “Josh and I and our amazing team have literally been working every day on gaySVTVworld for almost a year now.”

“So much of that time has been spent on brainstorming ideas, reaching out to people we wanted to work with and deciding on a slate we felt confident about,” continues Rosenzweig.  “We have several shows that are in various stages of development. Our intention is to continue to keep rolling out new programs, music videos and comedy sketches.”

FORMER HOUSTON ‘GAY MAN’ CO-STARS IN DAVEY WAVEY’S ‘GUIDE TO BOTTOMING’

Colby Melvin, a Houston to Los Angeles transplant, and former About Magazine cover model co-stars in social media video that claims to be the “Official Guide To Bottoming”

It’s defiantly not a video for someone that’s offended easily. It’s also a gamble to determine if it’s funny or a little too much information. You decide.

In ‘The Gay Bottom Bible’, (yes, it’s really called that) gay personality Davey Wavey and co-star Colby Melvin from Houston attempt to answer every question you might have ever had when it comes to A$$ sex. It also includes something that you might not care to know.

Matt Bomer: ‘Maybe I was just really lucky to be born at the right time’

by Greg Hernandez

Rock Hudson. Montgomery Clift. Raymond Burr. Robert Reed. Tab Hunter.

Hollywood history is filled with gay men who became stars then stayed steadfastly in the closet for fear that being found out would mean the end of their careers.

Only Hunter, now 84, came out publicly late in life. But the Damn Yankees star saw his career as an A-list movie star stall after a story in a gossip magazine in the 1950s hinted he was gay.

Then you have Matt Bomer in the year 2016.

His career has already been on an upwards trajectory with the TV series White Collar when he came out publicly in 2012 by acknowledging his husband and their three children in an awards speech.

Since then, he’s been nominated for an Emmy and won a Globe for the HBO film The Normal Heart, appeared in the film Magic Mike and its sequel, is currently starring in American Horror Story: Hotel and has roles in the upcoming feature films The Nice Guys and The Magnificent Seven.

In the current issue of Men’s Fitness, Bomer was asked about his ability now to be openly gay and to be cast in both straight and gay roles.

‘I try not to take the time to stop and think about all these zeitgeist-dependent circumstances that I really have no control over and just try and focus on the work,’ he says. ‘Maybe I was just really lucky to be born at the right time.

‘I’m really grateful for it, and I hope people will always think of me as an actor. It took a lot for me to be at this table right now.’
