Celebrating Canada’s LGBTQ2+ Community

Watch The Trailer For New LGBTQ Series 'Fak Yaass'

Watch the just-released trailer for the new LGBTQ series Fak Yaass, which hits OUTtv next month…
 
Next month OUTtv will premiere the new LGBTQ dramedy series Fak Yaass. The Canadian series follows the story of Nico Nicolakis and his big Greek family as they journey through accepting Nico’s sexuality.
 
The series is based on a true story and follows openly gay city boy Nico (Vasilios Filippakis) struggle as he returns home, a place he felt judged and unworthy growing up, to help take care of his ailing grandfather. Nico stuggles with his family, especially his grandfather, before his friends Anton (Shadrack Jackman) and Torri (Leanne Noelle Smith) help him learn to let his family in. Of course, Nico eventually proves to his family that being gay is not the only trait that defines him and they begin to learn how to accept him for who he is.
 

“We are so excited for everyone to finally watch what’s been a labour of love for all of us,” the show’s creator and star Filippakis told IN. “Fak Yaass has the heart of family, love and understanding, but the coming of age reality of when the new world clashes with the old.”
 
Watch the just-released trailer for Fak Yaass below:
 

Fak Yaass stars Vasilios Filippakis, Leanne Noelle Smith, Shadrack Jackman, and Stephanie Herrera. The limited-run series is directed by Matthew McLaughlin, executive produced by Les Tomlin and written by Anthony Filangeri under Bulldog Productions.
 
Fak Yaass premieres this June 17, 2019 at 9:30pm EST on OUTtv.
