You've seen the commercials on LOGO and BET J for months and have probably read several posts on this site about the extremely talented and gorgeous Demarco Majors and his teammates from the new LOGO reality series 'Shirts and Skins'. Well the wait officially ends tonight. LOGO will debut their newest reality series following the lives of The Rockdogs, a 13 member gold medal Gay Games winning basketball team hailing from the San Francisco Bay area.


After their last gold in 2006, the team fell apart, only to be rallied back together by their founders to defend their title at the upcoming National Gay Basketball Championship in Chicago.


This is not your ordinary professional basketball team and this is not your ordinary reality show. The word "groundbreaking" is thrown around a lot but I think it's definitely appropriate to label 'Shirts and Skins' and the colorful cast of b-ballers as such.


Men of color hold the majority on the team and all of the players are openly gay. Can't you just see the old stereotypes being stripped away? I wonder what Tim Hardaway is thinking right about now?


I had the pleasure of interviewing Rockdogs player Demarco Majors a few weeks ago and we had an opportunity to discuss his life, his new relationship with LOGO and his experience being an openly gay athlete.


Demarco is very soft spoken, which actually surprised me, but when he opens his mouth to speak he confirms that he has brains and beauty.


Get into our interview below and make sure to catch Shirts & Skins when it airs tonight at 7PM PT/10 PM ET on LOGO.
