In celebration of Pride Week, five gay friends and recent Brown graduates meet up in New York, catalysing one sexy, dynamic reunion. The Skinny, a dramedy by LOGO favorite Patrik-Ian Polk (Punks, Noah’s Arc) explores many aspects of the LGBTQ community, including promiscuity, monogamy, drugs and HIV–and especially focuses on the issues faced by different races in the gay community, a topic not explored nearly enough in film and TV.
Polk’s coming-of-age tale earned him a “Fusion Achievement Award” (which acknowledges people of color in LGBTQ film) at the 2012 Outfest Fusion, and stars Jussie Smolett (The Mighty Ducks, North), Blake Young-Fountain, Anthony Burrell, Shanika Warren-Markland and Jeffry Bowyer-Chapman. Other actors include Darryl Stephens (Noah’s Arc), Jennia Fredrique (Noah’s Arc), Wilson Cruz (Noah’s Arc), Seth Gilliam (Punks), newcomer Dustin Ross and internet sensation B. Scott.
Don’t miss the premiere of this must-see on Sunday, July 8 at 8/7c, only on Logo!
