Male Gays, a NewNowNext web docu-series from director Blake Pruitt, features young gay men from different walks of life sharing their experiences and opinions on queer life in a series of frank interviews.
Above: The first episode, "Coming Out," explores the complex process faced by gay men who chose to live openly. For some, their coming out was met with fear and rejection—for others the openness their news was met with was stunning, if not downright disconcerting. "I wasn't the one to come out," says Jordan. "My mom asked me if I was gay when I was 12...It was a very painless experience."
Check back every Thursday for a new installment of Male Gays.
