Check Out ‘Single Record’ The New Sexy Gay Hip Hop Original Series: WATCH

After sharing a kiss with his male co-writer, a pretentious rapper must choose between his truth or his career, a decision that could cost him his life. That’s the underlying theme of filmmaker Nelson Lassiter’s new web series Single Record.

Lassiter’s previous web series #NoHomo was a hysterical look at two straight friends who try to gay bait straight women.

The cast is predominantly African American and tells the story of a hip hop artist who discovers his sexuality and battles his inner demons while trying to play straight in public.

Single Record is told in the style of a documentary narrative where not everyone’s truth is fact. It’s flawlessly executed and beautifully shot.

Single Record, an LGBTQ Hip Hop series, launches on Dekkoo on January 24 and Revry on February 1.

For behind the scenes and updates from the creator of the series follow on Instagram @nmoseslass.

The award-winning documentary – parTy boi: black diamonds in ice castles by Michael Rice– exposed Ed Buck as a “serial predator,” and explores the tragic last days of Gemmel Moore, 26, the first victim that died of an apparent overdose of methamphetamine in Buck’s home in July 2017.

One of the men testifies in a voice over that Buck is a “slave master; the marionette [of] the whole black gay community with meth.”

The LGBTQ-targeted parTy boi also educates viewers on the dangers of meth addiction and the importance of HIV/AIDS awareness in urban communities, while providing a historically accurate depiction of “ballroom culture” – an artform of expression that recently found mainstream recognition on the hit FX network series, Pose Rice told Towleroad.

OUTSPORTS PERSON OF THE YEAR: Adam Rippon It’s incredible to think that we hardly knew Rippon prior a year ago: “Yet if you weren’t paying attention to figure skating or the occasional article on Outsports or Towleroad, Rippon’s name may have eluded you. Forget about being a household name, “Adam Rippon” wasn’t on the lips of even most HRC diners or GLAAD Award winners in 2017.”

Oh how times have changed.

FRIDAY’S FEATURED HOTTIE  Sterling is captured by the phenomenal LA based shutterbug Kengi Carr who told Towleroad, “Well to be completely honest the major inspiration for my work is because I love being Black. I love everything about Blackness and Black culture. I’ve always wanted to do a series of photography with a Black man who is proud and unapologetic about his Blackness. Sterling (the model) is my best friend and together we’ve collaborated and created an amazing body of work which evolves each time we work together. Ultimately, we are creating a body of work which we will present in a book and photography show challenging stereotypes, myths and stigma involving masculinity, sexuality and other societal norms involving Black men.”
