Last night (Wednesday), the season finale of DTLA aired but in case you haven’t seen it yet, we’re going to take a look at three of my favorite scenes from last week’s episode that I’m sure you’ll enjoy. Next week, we’ll do the same for the finale. As you may recall, in last week’s episode, Matthew’s (Patrick McDonald) play finally opens and the evening is filled with surprises… for everyone. *As a sidenote, did any of you see DTLA star Darryl Stephens on Two Broke Girls this week? Love that show!

In the first of my favorite scenes titled Plane Spotting, Waylon takes Lenny (Darryl Stephens) to a grassy patchy where they lay together and watch planes fly overhead. From there, then end up in the shower where they get super hot & heavy. Wow.

In the second scene called Lenny Wants To Get High, Lenny heads over to his nudist neighbors to see if he can score some weed and “take the edge off.” They invite him in and while smoking up, help him recognize where his stress is coming from.

Finally, in the third scene, SJ (Marshelle Fair) has had too much to drink and Kai (Hiro Tanaka) finds her passed out on the bathroom floor. He tries to help her get her sh*t together because her husband Norm has arrived. She is not in good shape. Check out all three scenes below and vote for your favorite. Two are NSFW just as a heads up.

Last week, I shared with you two of my favorite sexy scenes from Episode 6 of DTLA. This week, I have three scenes from Episode 7 for you to check out and once again vote for your favorite out of the three. To lure you in, one of the scenes is called “Elevator Sex” Hmm… going down? Haha.

In the first scene titled “Brian Is Gone“, Lenny’s (Darryl Stephens) nudist/hippy neighbors come over to help lift his post-breakup spirits, while Brian (Matthew Stephen Herrick) has an emotional breakdown. In second scene titled “Elevator Sex,” Matthew (Patrick McDonald) & Marky (Scott Pretty) get hot & heavy when they go to explore the top of the elevator shaft (Something tells me that wasn’t the only shaft explored). Finally, in the third scene, Kai (Hiro Tanaka) is in the “Principal’s Office” to deal with the drama going on between him and one of his gay students. This is definitely one of the more intense scenes as Kai is falsely accused of some pretty serious things by both the student and subsequently his parents.

Watch the three clips below and vote for which one you like best. A new episode of DTLA airs on OUTtv tonight (Wednesday, December 8) and this coming Friday on Logo. Enjoy!

Tonight, the Episode 7 of DTLA is airing on OUTtv. To recap on what happened in the last episode, Lenny and SJ met and shared advice with each other and later, SJ and Norm have a crazy night out on the town. Rafi helped Kai pass a test, while Stefan landed a new client. Matthew is becoming suspicious of Marky. (I feel like I just gave one of those speedy Glee recaps at the beginning of the episode – “…And that’s what you missed on DTLA.”)

Rather than just writing about what happened, I’ve included two of my favorite scenes from last week’s episode to make it more interactive. The first one is where Lenny (Darryl Stephens) has his co-worker Oliver over and after Oliver spills wine on his shirt, the boys end up in the bathroom to clean up the mess… while creating another one – wink 😉 In the second clip, Matthew (Patrick McDonald) and his hot acting partner are getting critiqued by their acting coach (Leslie Jordan) one of their… sexier scenes. Watch the sexy clips below and vote on which one you liked best. If you’re in the US, a new episode will air on Logo this Friday.

Premiering on October 24 on Logo and OUTtv is a new LGBT scripted drama called DTLA that is both poignant and funny. It depicts the relationships of seven friends with varied ethnic, cultural, and sexual orientations who work and live in the vibrant community of Downtown Los Angeles. It’s a story of love, friendship, loyalty, and being true to oneself — no matter what the cost. It is the first dramatic series with LGBT leads since Queer as Folk, Noah’s Arc, and The L Word.

I’ve had the opportunity to preview most of the first season and let me tell you – I’m hooked. You get so invested in the characters and their complex lives are really something I think a lot of us will be able to relate to. There are also many familiar faces, included Darryl Stephens (Noah’s Arc), who is also one of the writers and producers. The series also stars, Matthew Stephen Herrick, Marshelle Fair, Patrick McDonald, Ernest Pierce, Scott Pretty, Hiro Tanaka and more. Also, expect to see some big names like Leslie Jordan (Will & Grace), Jeremy Jackson (Baywatch), Melanie Griffith and Sandra Bernhard. Yes, that’s right, Griffith and Berhard play lesbian lovers in the series and as you’ll learn in the Google Hangout (inluded below) that we did with Executive Producer Larry Kennar (The L Word), there is one very hot scene between the two ladies.

Check out the trailer for the series below, as well as the Google Hangout we did this past Friday with the series creator. Included on the conversation was myself, Tyrell, Christopher Spargo from Logo, and the special guest, Larry Kennar, creator of DTLA. Be sure to tune in on October 24 for the premiere!

Coming this spring is a new gay scripted drama series called “DTLA,” short for Downtown Los Angeles of course. The show is described as a cross between “Queer as Folk” and “Swingers,” with six 30-minute episodes already produced. The show is set to debut on OutTV in April 2012.

The show follows the relationships of seven friends with varied ethnic, cultural, and sexual orientations who work and live in the vibrant community of Downtown Los Angeles. “It’s a story of love, friendship, loyalty, and being true to oneself – no matter what the cost.” DTLA will be the first dramatic series with gay leads since “Queer as Folk,” “Noah’s Arc,” and “The L Word.” The story is told from the perspective of Lenny (Darryl Stephens of “Noah’s Arc”) and Bryan (newcomer Matthew Stephen Herrick), a long term couple facing some serious relationship issues. As they start to deal with the end of their relationship – their lives, as well as those around them, will forever change.

The series also stars Danny Roberts of “MTV’s Real World,” Erin Daniels of “The L Word,” Tiffany Pollard of “VH1’s I Love New York,” TV/Radio personality B. Scott, Luenell of “Borat,” Julie Goldman of “Big Gay Sketch,” William McNamara of “Doing Time On Maple Drive,” and Leslie Jordan of “Will & Grace.” Oh, how I love “Beverly Leslie” – LOL. As Karen Walker once said, “Shouldn’t you be up in your tree makin’ cookies??!!” Enjoy the trailer below.

Think you recognize these two studs in the picture above? I’ll give you some hints. The one on the left appeared on MTV’s Real World and the one on the right starred in Logo’s Noah’s Arc. Still don’t know? The two men pictured above are Danny Roberts and Darryl Stephens.

So why are they sucking face in the shower? They are working on a new TV project together with Larry Kennar (The L Word, 50 First Dates, Barbershop). There aren’t a ton of details out about the show but it does revolve around a tight-knit group of friends who live in LA. Queerty was able to snag a chat with Darryl Stephens to find out some more details on the show and this sexy shower scene.

Queerty: It must have been such a burden making out with Danny Roberts.
Darryl Stephens: Danny is a sweetheart. We really went for it with that scene. By the time we were done, I think we were both a little shocked at how real some of it looked. He’s a great kisser!

We Can Do It!

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick, Totally GAY!

Another equality ad campaign has surfaced, this time by Open Artist Movement featuring our studly friend Reichen Lehmkuhl! There are actually ten familiar faces that have participated in the shoot thus far. I’m a fan of the concept!

About the campaign:

“We Can Do It! is a photo campaign to build solidarity and personal strength through positive messaging. The goal is to bring to life modern iconic individuals, by depicting them as powerful and not victims in support of the global LGBT movement worldwide.”

Reichen (Refresher: Amazing Race, Lance Bass, Dante’s Cove, etc.) is always one to help out with the LGBT equality movement. He even wrote a book called “Here’s What We’ll Say,” talking about his experience and opinion on the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, having been in the Air Force himself. Reichen is to star as Andrew in the off Broadway musical, My Big Gay Italian Wedding. The show starts in about a month and a half.
