Just when you thought that there isn’t ample enough television with main gay characters living out their real-life lives, think again. Eastsiders is a little gay phenomenon of a series that is changing the game in LGBT programming. Now, Eastsiders Season 3 has just been released on Netflix, and in-home program streaming just got a little gayer.
Emmy nominated Eastsiders originally started out as a few scenes that eventually lead to a Kickstarter campaign being started. Through these crowd source fundraising efforts, executive producer, writer, and star Kit Williamson, with husband John Halbach, raised over $80,000 and was able to create Eastsiders into a full blown online series that has built a solid online fan base.
Eastsiders follows Cal and Thom, a gay couple trying to juggle the trials and tribulations of monogamy, sex, relationships, careers, their friends, and their lives living in the east side of Los Angeles. The second season saw the pair relocate to New York City, and this new season, being billed as “The Great American Road Trip Is About to Get a Whole Lot Gayer”, has Cal and Thom hitting the road back to Los Angeles to try and re-start their old lives in California.
Plenty of hiccups occur along the way as Cal and Thom make their venture across the United States. Eastsiders season 3 was shot entirely on location in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Oregon, Nevada and finally California. The series stars Williamson as Cal and Emmy nominee Van Hansis as Thom with featured guest appearances by Constance Wu, (Fresh Off the Boat), Stephen Guarino (I’m Dying Up Here), Wilson Cruz (Star Trek Discovery), Brianna Brown (The CW’s Dynasty), Matt McKelligon (You’re Killing Me), Colby Keller (High Maintenance), and Willam Belli (RuPaul’s Drag Race).
Eastsiders is an Emmy-nominated series featuring 10-minute-long episodes that are all now available for viewing on Netflix, bringing a fresh new gay series to your at-home streaming collection. visit.
