Sex and the City; the black, gay and male version
20 October 2005 | by laartisteSee all my reviews

This show is a great show for not only the black gay community but the gay community. I have never seen such a positive depiction of black gay men EVER!!!! The only thing you here about black gay men is the two letters DL. In this diverse sexually alternative saga, we meet Noah (Darryl Stephens), the main character, is a struggling screenwriter who resides in lovely Santa Monica, CA and acquires a crush on another screenwriter Wade(Jensen Atwood). Wade is a newly out man who appears to be heterosexual.

Noah has four friends: Alex (Rodney Chester), an AIDS educator, who Noah met during his first HIV test. Alex is a sassy divo who you can say is the matriarch of the group. He has been in a seven year relationship with Trey(Gregory Keith). Around his friends he masquerades a sense of confidence but inside feels distrust and low self esteem. Chance (Doug Spearman) is the Ivy Leaguer of the group who is a college professor at UCLA. He is moving into a new house with his husband Eddie (Johnathan Julian) and step-daugther Kenya. He struggles to commit to his marriage because of his rapid courtship but learns to live with it because of Eddie's charm and sensitivity.

Lastly, we have Ricky (Christian Vincent), the playa of the group who believes commitment is about as useful as chewed up flavorless gum. He shuns his confidantes for seeking commitment as he changes men like changing clothes. He is a successful owner of a clothing boutique on historical Melrose Avenue.

Sassy, Funny, Fabulous, Fierce, Noah's Arc has already made history as the first black gay series on television. Patrik Ian Polk, the creator, director, writer, producer of this groundbreaking pot-boiler, gives a unique and wonderful visionary of four fashionable and fabulous black friends who go through the ups and downs of the gay community. In Conclusion, you should watch this
