The Slope is my new favourite programme. Hell, it’s my new favourite thing, ever. I LOVE IT!
This internet-based ‘sitcom’ tells the story of a lesbian couple called Ingrid and Desiree. They describe themselves as ‘superficial homophobic lesbians’ which, quite frankly, are probably the only kind of lesbians I could entertain getting along with.
Based in Brooklyn’s hipster district, Park Slope, Ingrid and Desiree try and negotiate being a couple in way that isn’t too ‘super Gay’ for bi-curious ‘femme’ Desiree, but that is still meaningful for the more ‘dykey’ Ingrid. So far they have dealt with such important issues as Dan Savage’s It Gets Better video campaign, swinging, buying a strap-on harness, and which one of them is prettiest.All episodes are hilarious and I recommend you watch them NOW!
The Slope is fast becoming my Big Dick Mike Show, the lesbian version. It’s brilliant how thanks to the 21st century, changing cultural values, and the internet, people are presenting sexuality as fluid, and as FUNNY. ‘Sexual Identity is a joke’ said Steve Zeeland.
