Yep, you read that right! We made primetime TV, baby. Remember back about six months ago you heard us rambling on & on about filming with the Bump! crew from LOGO? Well, the show finally premiered nationwide on Wednesday, March 9, and we’re happy to share it here with you now…you know, just in case you forgot to set your DVRs. Bump – the ultimate gay travel companion – is the world’s first LGBT travel and lifestyle television series presenting new, gay-friendly destinations in each episode with a stylish, fun & upbeat twist. The show airs internationally on OutTV, LOGO, Here and others. San Diego was the featured destination in episode 5 of the series’ 5th season. So, they’ve been around and know exactly how to have fun no matter where in the world they go.
For our first “LIVE With” webcast from our new Monday night studio at the Brass Rail - the oldest gay bar in San Diego – we welcomed some San Diego fresh meat in the form of actor/writer/producer and all-around sweetheart, Ron Smith, aka Ronnie Kerr. Ronnie’s one month new to America’s Finest City, having moved here at the urging of several friends. We got to know this genuine beefcake who, on top of writing, producing & starring in movies, also dabbles in fitness as a personal trainer. Ronnie settled in the guest seat, beer in hand, to share with us his career, talk about some of his favorite roles, from action flicks “Absolute Aggression” to stints on “One Life To Live” and “V.I.P.” to starring roles in “Regarding Billy” and “Shut Up And Kiss Me,” a semi-autobiographical movie he wrote and starred in that’s available on Netflix for streaming now. He’s excited to get involved in the San Diego LGBT community, and being a fan of Country music and cowboy boots, Ophelia’s determined to rope him into the Rodeo. Ronnie shared with us some exclusive breaking news about two new films he will write and star in, “Gym Bunnies” and “Safe Word” both due out next year. He alos loves kids and Aaron thinks his next movie should be about the adoption process for LGBT parents. Hey, never know, it could happen.
