Premiere First Episode of Gimme Sugar

Ultimately the series premiere Gimme Sugar, a reality show that promises hitch every Monday, you can continue here in Lesplanet. Its protagonists, five girls, most lesbians, will launch a joint project with the dream of reaching the top.

They are a group of good friends, teenagers and lesbians who have decided to bet strong and unite to realize a dream. Opening a "lesbian bar," Truck Club, in Los Angeles. But there may be a club like any other. It must be the most hot and spicy in the city. With the wishes and desire to succeed, these five girls will give their utmost to achieve its goal. But not everything will be laughter and glory.

The Good: One of the most positive aspects of Gimme Sugar is that three of the five main characters are Asian Americans, a group that has been woefully underrepresented on television regardless of sexual orientation. Given that the number of openly lesbian Asian-Americans in the public eye can be counted on one hand, this is especially welcome.

Gimme Sugar also presents a group of lesbian/bi friends hanging out together — something that is rarely seen on television, where lesbian/bi characters (or personalities on reality shows) are generally isolated from a queer peer group. This is valuable because it shows queer teens — the demographic that this kind of show is aimed at — that having a group of gay friends, where your sexuality is moot, is possible.

Finally, the series features an extremely gay-positive social scene, which is something that many younger LGBT viewers need to see on television. Dating is presented as entirely normal, and whatever drama arises does not arise because of one's sexual orientation, but because of issues that are common to straight people as well.


Charlene, 26 - Born in the Philippines, raised in LA

Truck Stop ManagerTalent manager by day, Charlene spends her Friday nights managing the hottest club in LA, Truck Stop. Her friends all call her "Switch" because she's the switchboard for all the hot young LA lesbians. If you need info or advice, "Switch" is the one to call. She has a heart of gold and a smile for all. The girls all look up to Charlene, she's the leader of the pack and what she says goes. Her dream is to take Truck Stop global so girls everywhere can party and play in an environment free of attitude or judgment.

Bathilda, 23 - Taiwan/Malaysia

Promotional Model, Bathilda is the "Queen of the Night" and Party Flavor of both the gay and straight club scene. She's the kind of girl who would rather crawl across the top of the bar to get to the other side than walk thru the crowd like everyone else. Her friends think she needs to take it down a notch, but Bathilda loves the spotlight and the girls are always having to rein her in. She has a thing for straight girls and is always happy to satisfy their bi-curiosity. Like Davonee she has no problem getting the ladies, but can she find one to keep?

Davonee, 23 - grew up in Savannah, Georgia

Nanny by day, rock star by night Davonee wants to be a rock star and is finally taking steps towards that goal. When it comes to the ladies Davonee's gone platinum with player status. She's known for dating the hottest girls on the scene. But Davonee can't seem to keep her dick in her pants, and she'll have to change her player ways if she's going to hang on to this one, because she's a keeper.

Alex, 21 - Raised in LA

Aspiring Comedian When this girl sets her sights on something, be it a girl or launching a new club night, nothing stands in her way. Alex is pursuing a career as an actress/comedian and her gift for comedy helps keep things light when when there's drama going down. Free thinking and free loving, Alex doesn't feel the need to define her sexuality, she's an equal opportunity lover and dates girls and boys.

Robin, 23 - From Annapolis, Maryland

Casting Associate Robin grew up in a small town and moved to LA just last year so she could join the hot lesbian club scene. Now every night's a party--whether it's hanging with three drag queens, a straight guy, or a new girl on the scene. She's witty, bold, and has a mind of her own. Robin says whatever she's thinking and even though it causes a lot of drama she's only saying what's on everyone's mind and that keeps all the girls honest. Robin is a hard-worker who doesn't take no for an answer. She is quickly moving up the ranks as a casting director, which suits her because she can smell drama a mile away.

Now you can see the first chapter then I hope you enjoy it and write your comments about the serie.
