1 Girl 5 Gays: Groundbreakingly Human

“1 Girl 5 Gays in 20 Questions about Love and Sex.”

That sentence, which begins every episode, sums up the premise of the entire series and has become one of my absolute favorite shows. I stumbled on the show by accident after watching and obsessing over the deliciously guilty A-List on the Logo Channel. Initially a Canadian MTV show, some critics say it perpetuates the gay stereotypes of shallow promiscuity in the LGBT community. But to be frank, I see the show as brutally honest risqué, funny, sad, and touching all rolled into one. Sure, the show may shock outsiders but it successfully illustrates all different perspectives of gay men of every race and religion, and class. I’m very conversational and have found these questions to be great icebreakers for old and new friends. The guys are candid, relatable, and intimate. The second season started in early February and I anticipate every new groundbreaking episode. Thank you, Aliya Jasmine.

Here are two examples of the two types of questions: funny and risqué versus the touching and human.
