Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 4, 2007
Something very queer is happening on the Internet with the launching of 'Q-Tube' -- the new gay TV channel on the popular video website, YouTube. Located at: youtube.com/villagegaytv , 'Q-Tube' is the creation of Village TV Producer Corey Chambers, and offers viewers a wide variety of free gay-oriented video-shorts and trailers in one easy to access place, with new selections added every week. The driving force behind both Village TV and Q-Tube, Chambers first introduced VillageTV.com in 1997. Though at first with little fanfare, eventually his unique brand of alternative programming caught the attention of its target audience--members of the global gay community. In 2001, he further pioneered Village TV's LIVE Channel -- the first ever 24-hour non-stop gay telecast. Now with the creation of 'Q-Tube", Chambers hopes to once again further open up the internet to homosexual audiences everywhere by utilizing the popularity of YouTube -- the innovative site that has almost single-handedly turned internet video into an international sensation.
Given the wide selection of exclusive film-featurettes available from Village TV's library, it's only natural that many of the clips presently enjoyed on Q-Tube first originated there. Among those currently being rediscovered is Village's entire 'Saturgay Night' series (hosted by Chambers himself,) as well as a sexy, surreal preview of the movie "The Social". Likewise, several pieces were initially featured as part of Village's underground hit "The Gay News". These include an interview with Norman Korpi -- member of the very first cast of MTV's "The Real World", regarding his 'mockumentary' "The Wedding Video".
With more than 25,000 views so far, Q-Tube's number one rated presentation by far is an excerpt from a holiday edition of "The Gay News". It features entertainment reporter Leo Buck as he introduces the Jeff Stryker action figure -- an anatomically correct male doll modeled after the well-endowed adult super star. Joining him in the largely improvised segment are anchor-boy Jonathon Weeks and special 'guest' co-anchor, award-winning performer Brad Benton. Together, they demonstrate the many uses this one-of-a-kind plaything can be put to -- including watching him get 'friendly' with Barbie's 'Ex' Ken, and not asking (-- and definitely not telling) with GI Joe. The video culminates with a sidesplitting coupling of the Stryker action-figure with a talking President George W. Bush doll. Such uncensored, no-holds-barred fare effectively characterizes just what made "The Gay News" such an overwhelming cult favorite.
According to Chambers, the creation of 'Q-Tube' precedes the official re-launch of Village TV in October 2007; until then, viewers can enjoy truly unique broadcasting with a decided 'out of the closet' slant by checking out what's up on 'Q-Tube'.
