Gay Riviera a real-time documentary.

by Frank Rovers in Media & entertainment , 18 juni 2001

Gay Riviera is a new real-life series in America. Starting on Bravo-TV (a cable channel in the states) Gay Riviera bare the lives of eight gay and lesbians in New York and Miami and takes things a few steps beyond Queer as folk.

The eight-episode, week-long original series, part of the cable channel’s Out of the Closet Festival, takes place in New York City and Miami, which together are regarded as comfortable gay meccas, a “Gay Riviera,” as it were.
The series follows the lives of eight sexy principal subjects and their friends, including Ryan and Rob, a pair of frisky 20-year-old boys; an aspiring lesbian pop star; a black recreational wrestler; a pumped-up, HIV-positive events promoter; a witty Cuban lesbian; and a bleached-blond Miami bartender and her makeup artist best friend.
Several subjects have to deal with broken hearts, others have to contend with insane friends, while numerous scandals—cheating, confessions of love, and, at one point, a parent revealing a clandestine, tragic gay affair to his son—unfold.
There’s also a spicy side of sauce accompanying Gay Riviera, including a hot visit to the White Party by naughty Ryan and Rob, who make some very international “friends,” a lesbian fetish party experience, and plenty of scantily clad, decadent clubbing and beach antics.

Gay Riviera is part of a Out of the Closet Festival which brings lots of different looks on gay lives like an impression from the Mardi Gras, films like “Love! Valour! Compassion!” and “The Celluloid Closet”. It’s time the network companies in the Netherlands start thinking of projects like this one.
