Kwame is seventeen; sexy and unswervingly straight with his hormones raging like a forest fire. But there's no room in his packed schedule to feed the flames. His best mate's in love with his dad - his gay dad has just divorced his husband and plunged into a mid-life attack of 'adultescence', buying a skate-park and becoming the original bitch on wheels. The family counselor has run off with his girlfriend's nouveau rich millionaire father, and his bitch/angel girlfriend is hanging out with a pair of sexy 'lippy lesbians'. It ain't easy being straight in the 21st century - but hey, someone's got to do it... Written by Anonymous

Another country heard from

Another Country heard from…

It seems the reviews on this series are mixed. (At least on this site) so let me add my 2 cents worth (pence worth?)

I rented Metrosexuality from my local gay bookstore along with California based soap, West Hollywood Stories. What can I say? Once again the Brits blow us away when it comes to telling good stories in an engaging way.

Metrosexuality is wonderful. It takes an even less traditional stance than `Queer as Folk' but presents gay folks (and their friends and families) in a positive light. The characters are presented within a gay subculture but within that milieu they are so real and understandable that I can identify with them all, even those that are very different from anyone that I know. As a gay man in his 40's I expect to be able to empathize with a 40 something gay man with a son and an ex-lover who's dating an ex-paratrooper but I was amazed by how quickly I felt myself in empathy with a straight man nearing middle age who's missing his wife.

The actors are uncommonly good looking and there's a wide variety to suit all tastes. The dialogue is so witty that this `Yank' longed for subtitles so that I wouldn't miss anything. The music integrated into the episodes was great and the different closing montages for every episode were a hoot. I only hope that this series goes on and on and that I can somehow find the next set of episodes in the good ole USA.

Unlike Queer as Folk, I don't see this one making it `across the pond' as the sensibility is more British and less easily translated, particularly in its equal treatment of blacks. More's the pity.
