These days, when there’s a cultural lack in the mainstream, artists are heading to the internet to create a new venue in which to express themselves as well as entertain others. The Outs, a webseries written by Adam Goldman and Sasha Winters, fills a void currently left open on television. The series follows Mitchell and Jack, two gay men living in New York, as each deals with their recent break-up and newly single status. Funny and poignant, The Outstakes a refreshingly honest look at what it’s like to be a young gay man now in New York—the awkward dates, the awkward sex, and, thankfully, the awkward (and hilarious) social scenes. Funded by two Kickstarter campaigns,The Outs is already a modest success. With three episodes online and three more to be completed, co-creator and co-star Adam Goldman chats about the process of creating a web series, the inevitable comparisons to Lena Dunham’s Girls, and the still disappointing lack of gay characters in media.
