About

PROGRAM AVAILABLE FROM 6/24-7/11
Nick and Max are roommates at Tuffett University, a classic liberal arts college complete with battalions of student groups, over-achieving freshmen, upperclassmen burnouts and the pervasive self-righteous indignation that characterizes Northeastern academia. Nick Cohen is an out-since-birth Jewish boy with a dash of naiveté and *slight* OCD tendencies, whereas his roommate, Max Finnegan, is a messy, shaggy-headed stoner who may or may not have peaked in high school. The world of Boy•Friends flips social paradigms: being gay is not an issue, the jocks of the struggling Intramural Flag Football team are the underdogs while the a cappella singers are the popular kids, the frat boys are the tame and rule-abiding students while the Women’s Rugby Team is the drug dealing muscle, and the ladies are always in charge. The show moves past the cliché gay-best-friend-sidekick and homophobic-straight-man relationship we see so often to present a modern world where a gay guy and straight guy can just be friends. Best friends.
