American-singer songwriter Steve Grand will appear in the sequel to gay cult classic Boy Culture.
The indie film, which was released in 2006 and directed by Q. Allan Brocka, is getting a TV sequel called Boy Culture: The Series, and the pop-country singer will make his acting debut in it.
Steve is popular for his viral success country song All-American Boy, and is well-known for his LGBT+ activism.
Also featuring in the series will be Gayby star Matthew Wilkas, original Boy Culture star Darryl Stephens, Instagram model and blogger Matt Crawford, and The Big Gay Sketch Show’s Stephen Guarino.
With the original team behind the film coming to work together on this new series, it’s going to pick up 10 years after the ending of the film.
However, before filming can begin, the team have to raise the funds – and that’s where you come in.
They’ve asked the public to donate to a Kickstarter to raise a total of $50,000 to cover the cost of production.
The Kickstarter page says the show will be an “innovative, sizzling-hot, funny love story in series/film hybrid form” that will consist of six 15-minute episodes to create a feature-length, 90-minute story.
“The sequel will explore themes of sexuality, sex work, age, race, closeted celebrities, cosplay, PrEP, and how gay men can make a committed relationship work in a world where sex – just like your favourite show to binge-watch – is available on demand,” they explained.
The Kickstarter so far has raised $3,545 with a month to go, and you can visit the Kickstarter page here.
