"Love At First Night" is a comedy based web series about 2 men finding love after a hook up. Although their connection is seamless, they can't escape the issues affecting their blossoming relationship. Spencer and Jayden walks us through the stages of their unconventional love story. PREMIERING spring 2016.
From the outside looking in, Spencer and Jayden appear to be the cliche. Two young black men hooking up after a house party. However, their story takes a unique twist once they realize their attraction for each other is more than a one night stand. One night turns into a weekend of pillow talk, fun, engagement and passion that sometimes takes months to create. Almost instantly they recognize that their connection shouldn't be ignored, but no good thing is met without resistance.
While Love at First Night does not mirror the stages of my own relationship, it's extremely personal to me. This work is my response to the painful belief that black gay men are unable to find love and maintain it. Im fully aware that no relationship is perfect but I felt it was important display black gay love. I wanted to display the beauty of connection, the beauty of breaking down and building up, the beauty of staying committed when challenges arise. Love comes in all colors but I can't help but to feel mainstream media ignores black gay love. This webseries is a welcoming invitation to our allies, the LGBT community, to all humans to join us in refusing to perpetuate negative images of black gay men and to replace them with human portrayals of our strengths, our struggles and our beauty, through the lens of comedy of course.
