It has been a wild ride as we counted down twenty-three long days to the season premiere of Signal 23 TV’s About Him Season 2: The Revolution!

Well now the show is out and Sunday night we were in the mix of one amazingly poppin’ premiere party! It all went down at Atlanta’s very own Suite Food Lounge.  Media sponsored by Rolling Out, The drinks were wonderful, the ambiance was positive and crazy cool, but the best part was meeting the amazing cast of this highly anticipated web series! Yep, our boy Gary Lavard is back as the face of About Him in a new role, with a set of new and familiar faces to tackle homophobia, isolation, and true love against the backdrop of the AIDS epidemic of the eighties.

The Series


As you recall, the new season of the series on the network will not be a continuation of the first season. Gary Lavard is now “Dustin,” a gay college student hopelessly in love with campus hottie, “Armani” (Chris June). For Dustin it is love at first sight and he wants nothing more than to be with his dream boy, but is haunted by memories of homophobia and his own painful lessons in what it means to be Black and gay in this time period. Dustin is inquisitive and hopeful, but like so many gay men has filled his emptiness and pain with man after man. He prays Armani is the one. His prospects finally seem to be looking better when he finds himself in an African-American Studies class with Armani and the two reluctantly hit it off–with a little nudge from his best female friend (or friend-girl, as The Kidz like to say).

The budding couple’s pleasure is soon tainted by pain, however, when while trying to hook up they witness a hate crime so graphic and vile you will feel your heart wrenching. For Dustin love will always be “About Him,” but he may soon learn everything comes with a price and sometimes with a fight. Let The Revolution begin…

We have to say this is by far the best web series we have yet to see. It was worth the wait and anticipation. The story line’s timing is right on, especially in a renewed age of social activism. This series reminds us of darker times when being gay was deemed wrong on every level and systemic homophobia was rampant. Henderson Maddox has truly outdone himself with this piece of work. Be sure you subscribe to Signal 23 TV’s Vimeo  to catch the first two episodes now by clicking here! Happy viewing!

The “Bawn” of A New Era! Meet Anthony Bawn (@AnthonyBawn), Director of “About Him: Freshman Year!”

It is no secret that we love ourselves some About Him: Freshman Year.

The series has been rolling strong for almost two months now and we love, love, LOVE it! Again, it only proves Tyson Anthony is a genius. However, he is not the only creative genius aboard this groundbreaking web series, meet the man behind the camera, the CEO of Bawn TV, director extraordinaire, Anthony Bawn!

Anthony is easily one of the best directors we have ever met. His style, admittedly, is very clear and cut–get it right or watch it end up on the floor. Some may find that as brutal, but we see it as efficient, especially when the public is craving your product. Indeed, Mr. Bawn has undertaken quite a project adapting this hit web series from its parent network, Signal 23 TV, to Bawn TV and Amazon Prime. Many, including us, were skeptical of his skill, but after seeing his work and actually having a meeting of the minds, we can tell you this guy is the real deal! Check out our exclusive interview with him below:

As you can see Anthony does not mince words and really tells you like it is. There has been a great deal of controversy surrounding who does and owns what with About Him, and we are impressed with how nobly he is handling it all. As aforementioned he is the CEO of Bawn TV, an online network with some amazing content. Most of the series on it are independent, a few are other series from Tyson Anthony. Personally, we have been binge watching Cheetah In August and the movies, Four,  and Chasing Pavement which stars former porn star, Remy Mars. You can subscribe to the network by clicking here.

We are here for Anthony Bawn, Bawn TV, and About Him: Freshman Year and you should be too! Happy viewing!
