There’s lots of people who have anonymous sex. There’s also people looking for love. There’s people looking for an open relationship. There are also the queens. There are those you wouldn’t know were gay. It’s the gay experience.” vKVZ0du HBO is targeting a 2014 premiere date with eight episodes planned for the new series.
