Let's get #justicefornoahsarc
Here it is just press play!
Before Pose and RuPaul's Drag Race, another show challenged black gay men to think of themselves in a way that many of us had not been able to before. Noah's Arc is a sitcom focused on the lives of four black gay men and depicted us as normal human beings. Not that we ever weren't. However, when it first aired in 2005, it quickly became a cult favorite. Suddenly, young queer men had an image to identify. Fifteen years later, the creator and cast have reunited to honor the legacy and hopefully charter a new adventure in the form of a full-fledged reboot.
The reunion aptly titled "Noah's Arc: The 'Rona Chronicles" will air this Sunday, July 5, 2020, at 7 pm. on Youtube and Facebook Live. We're not exactly who's account will be hosting the stream, so you should probably RSVP via their official Eventbrite link. If all goes well and the support is there, Noah and his loveable gang may hang around. Reboots are all the rage nowadays. "Roseanne" (now "The Connors") and queer fave "Will & Grace" have all delighted fans with a bit of nostalgia in an increasingly chaotic world. Maybe this can be our time, but it all depends on us.
Try Watching It With The Family This Time
For some of us Noah's Arc fans, it might have been a guilty pleasure. Something to watch alone or with other black gay men, but this time I say we make it a family affair. So much has changed over the last 15 years, and if the show is going to have a severe chance at coming back, then it needs to be exposed like it never has before.
Justice For Noah's Arc
Now that I think about it, I'm suddenly inspired by the supreme songbird Mariah Carey and the #justiceforglitter social media campaign that launched he alleged "flop" to #1 19 years after the initial release. What might we be able to do for the Arc?
