In Episode 1 of ‘So Extra,’ We Search for Sexy Swimsuit Models in New York City

Hornet just launched the new web series So Extra, continuing its dedication to creating fun and occasionally irreverent content for the LGBTQ community.

So Extra follows Hornet Senior Editor Alexander Kacala as he takes to the street to explore the LGBTQ community of New York City. In the first episode, his hunt for sexy models takes him from an Abercrombie & Fitch event (that falls short) to a fun and flirty party at the Mr. Turk boutique in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District.

“I’ve been labeled by others — often meant as a dig — as someone who is ‘extra,’ so I thought I’d embrace that side of me for this series,” Kacala says. “Every other week we’ll be featuring different facets of LGBTQ life, from Drag Race trivia to history lessons to queer slang. We want to present these things in a light-hearted, silly way, and yeah, people may label that as ‘so extra.’ There’s plenty we should be taking seriously right now, but I hope to provide people with a reason to laugh and smile, too.”

So Extra joins several other original digital series created by Hornet.

Welcome to Meatland is a biweekly series that follows L.A. drag queen Meatball as she terrorizes the queer underbelly of American nightlife with her signature brand of raunchy humor and wit.

Sound + Vision is Hornet’s monthly series profiling queer artists, going behind-the-scenes with some of the world’s most influential queer makers and creators.

This Week in LGBT is a weekly rundown of five of the week’s most compelling stories, encompassing news and politics, entertainment, and pop culture headlines.

What’s Your Story? is dedicated to exploring and amplifying underrepresented voices in the LGBT community. Everyone has a story to share, and we want to provide a space to explore and discover the stories of our community that often go untold or unnoticed.

Ask a Pro is an ongoing video series that features health experts answering common questions men have about sexual health. This series allows Hornet’s community of users to ask direct questions and receive answers that are accurate and useful.
