This is a perfect example of gay and bisexual men of color taking the initiative to create a platform to tell our stories and create visibility.

Loldarian.com is thrilled to introduce you to Brotherhood TV, a new web talk show set to debut on July 11 on bortherhoodtv.com. Brotherhood TV is hosted by 6 uniquely different young Black and Latino Gay and Bisexual men from the Boston area, who share their voices and give a face to the thousands of young Black and Latino Gay and Bisexual men who go un-heard.

Loldarian.com was granted an advanced screening of the debut episode and the incredibly talented, intelligent, and opinionated group of men did not disappoint. The 45 minute show tackled topics ranging from marriage equality, homophobia, societal expectations around gender identity & expression, to the dynamics of same-sex dating when there is an age difference between two partners.

Co-Creator and Co-Host of Brotherhood TV, Amir, tells loldarian.com why the show is so timely and necessary.“There are constantly studies released about us and it is time that we speak up and share our voices. As a young black gay man I am the epitome of all things society hates; I am a feminist who is the decedent of slaves and who is gay. I fearlessly celebrate who I am. My goal through this show is to let other young Black and Latino Gay and Bisexual men know that they are beautifully made, and that it is imperative that they stand in their truth. But above all it is important that they know they aren’t alone.”


Brotherhood TV debuts online on July 11th with new episodes to follow every Monday. Follow the cast on Twitter and Facebook.

Meet the cast in the sneak peek video below:

UPDATE: The first episode of Brotherhood TV has been added below:

I just saw the show. It reminded of the Deeper Love Project we have in ATL. They have a discussion group every Wednesday at AIDAtlanta on the same topics. What is missing from the show is an infusion of a season man point of view. As a couple of guys said on the show, they have experience and would see things from different perspective. I'm often critical of gay discussion groups who talk about problems in the community but not offer an resolutions. Brotherhood TV is preaching to the choir so what can anyone learn. It would be great if they did some homework and look at different solutions to the topics they raise, all of them are divisive (i.e.Top, Bottom, Masc, Fem,older dating younger, who's spreading HIV, condoms or no condoms, same-sex marriage). I'm give the first show a B-.

WOW! I absolutely loved it! at first some seemed a little nervous but none the less they delivered. This can be big and we need this in our community. Last but not least I'm not gona lie they were far more forward thinking than most the "kids" their age! so thats a plus! "A" from me!
