Recently, GAY NERDS creator JP Larocque had the chance to sit down and interview some Toronto-based filmmakers for a piece on queer Canadian web series for the LGBT paper Daily Xtra!.

Check out the article here, which references Leslieville, Who the F**k is Nancy?, Out With Dad, Seeking Simone, Boystown, B.J. Fletcher: Private Eye, rihannaboi95 and GAY NERDS!

Habits are hard to shake, even after death.

We try to challenge stereotypes about zombies. For instance: Zombie smoking and checking social media.

After years of being convention nuts, the GAY NERDS crew had a chance to be on the other side of table promoting our second season at the annual Fan Expo Canada in downtown Toronto.

Over the course of four days, we met so many awesome folks. And the cosplay was insane! Check out some of the pics below:

And our friends at The Canadian Nerd stopped by to interview us in their most recent episode:

It was a great time, and we look forward to returning next year. Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth!

Last night, the ah-mah-zing storefront cinema and performance space Videofag hosted Nancy and the Nerds: A Double-Bill of Toronto Queer Webseries, a celebration of all things queer, Toronto, and web series! The event brought together our wonderful cast and crew with the fantabulous folks behind the series Who The F**k Is Nancy? (seriously, go watch them) for a combo screening and a LIVE DRAG PERFORMANCE. You can’t get that on your desktop!

And even though Toronto is sweltering and the boys and girls are getting ready for all the sexy festivities this weekend, we had a packed house!

Special thanks to Videofag for hosting this awesome event (and for use of the photos), to the boys behind Who The F**k Is Nancy? for being awesome bedfellows (go watch their series), and to our fans for braving the humidity to catch a very special teaser of season two!

Happy Pride, everybody!
