“The combination of nerd culture, gay sass and the lampooning of fan-favorite films like Jurassic Park and 28 Days Later transcends the limitations of each of its components and becomes something amazing: a fun, funny and faithful show that uses the old to tell new stories.”

Check out the fantastic series review WebVee Guide posted of our first two seasons. Another favourite passage:

“[Gayliens] disassembles its own assumptions to achieve a greater degree of meaning beyond simple fan service, and is only one example of the artful use of self-aware parody that Larocque consistently brings to the screen.”

Make sure to read the full review here — it’s pretty awesome. Thanks for the love, folks!

In other news, we have a special bonus episode coming your way soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that. Happy Pride!

An older review of our first season that we just discovered!

It is very ambitious to create a web series that is essentially a scaled down sitcom. With less time and greater budgetary constrictions, there is a large margin of error. However, sometimes a little risk and self-belief in the quality of one’s work pays off and we are blessed with the delightful show that is GAY NERDS.”

Thanks, folks!

As longtime patrons of Toronto’s Inside Out LGBT Film Festival and big fans of queer cinema, it was a tremendous honour to have GAY NERDS be featured as part of the festival’s very first Web Series Program. We walked the pink carpet, met tons of fans, and screened our season two finale, “The Fellowship of Sarah Michelle Gellar” (which we will be sharing with you shortly).

It was a truly fantastic day! Thanks again to the festival for letting our dreams come true.

And now for photos!
