Trailer for ‘Boystown’ Web Series: Episode “Gaysian”

Boystown is the working title for a proposed web series about 3 gay men, with the lead character being an Asian Canadian. The three lead actors are Richard Lee, Adamo Ruggiero, and Ben Lewis and the footage is from a short film called “Gaysian,” which is a comedy about a gay Asian man dealing with different forms of racism in the gay world, and even in himself.

Says Director/Writer Austin Wong:

There is an epidemic of racism against Asians in the gay community, and so I wrote/directed a short film about it called “Gaysian” for which I received funding from the Canadian BravoFact fund. The short outlines the issues facing an Asian gay man who either hears “No Asians” from gay men, or else is pursued by ‘rice queens’ who fetishize Asians, neither of which appeal to him. Directing the short film was positive experience, and so I am now trying to raise funding for a full web series that will continue to follow this Asian character, as there is little to no content which feature Asians in a lead role.

About jozjozjoz

jozjozjoz is a taiwanese-american gal who lives and blogs underneath the hollywood sign and who doesn’t clean her fishtank unless the fish starts to do the backstroke. she is also able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but cannot stop from bumping into door handles, cabinet doors, and anything else that protrudes or has a sharp edge. she does not run with scissors for this same reason. she can pet the fur off a dog but don’t ask her to go anywhere near a horse. or a moth. or a roach. her dealings with L.A.’s finest (aka the parking violations department) are legend, as are her giant sneezes. Other than the two too many joz’s, jozjozjoz is a perfectly normal, relatively sane individual who defies the odds, reaches for the stars, and carries moonbeams home in a jar. She’d rather be a fish… but not in her own dirty fishtank.
