New York City-based writer-director Adam Goldman has produced an intriguing new web series about gay life in the big city. Titled "The Outs," Goldman describes his new series as "a story about big relationships, the ones that really define people, and what happens when they fall apart, and how that can change someone."

As Goldman tells HuffPost Gay Voices:
When was the last time a show about gay people made you feel something?
Here’s the thing: sometimes if you want something and you can’t find it then you have to make it. Right? I wanted a character-driven comedy with heart about gay men -- I love Mitch and Cam on "Modern Family," but those aren’t my people. I don’t live in California and I don’t have a baby. And I never went to clown school. (Not that I wouldn’t. I would!) Mitch and Cam brighten that show immeasurably, but it’s not about them.
As it turns out, "The Outs" is quite the community project. Noting that he "wants to give [viewers] an idea of what it’s like to live here without alienating you if you don't," Goldman continues:
We shoot in Brooklyn. Our locations are local businesses (Pete Zaaz, Glass Shop and Wino(t) in Crown Heights, for example). Our music is by local bands -- Beauty Feast, Akudama, Strange Shapes and Delicate Steve, just to name a few.
