Sugar Stories

I discovered Sugar Stories" some time ago.  (On somebody else's site.  Sorry for not giving you credit.  I can't remember where!!!!)  I was AMAZED to see an entire Black gay culture happening in FRENCH!!!  Aside from the men being BEAUTIFUL, CUTE and SEXY, "Sugar Stories" tells a pretty solid, intriguing and FUN story.  I'm not reviewing here, but I can just say that I have thoroughly enjoyed this series which has been broken down into seasons.  Or, as the French would say: "Saison."  Most intriguing, as a comic strip artist, is the fact the stories are live action but set up like comic book panels.  What fun!!!  Unfortunately, folks, most of "saison two" is in French.  But, you can kind of follow along with the PICTURES.  I'm just happy to see something so unique featuring all of these beautiful black brothas and other gay men of another culture.  The shallow side of me would talk about the boys, cute outfits, tight jeans, bulging packages and plunging necklines, but Sugar Stories is a lot of fun that takes itself seriously.  Get "saison" two into English, folks, so that I'll know what's going on!!!  And, just like Saison one, there's a new mystery to be solved!!!  And, they're also on Facebook --- in FRENCH!!!

Closet DRAMA!!!
 Ex DRAMA!!!
Cute Boy DRAMA!!!
 Mystery DRAMA!!!

Hi Vic,

And thank you so much for your nice words about our "photo comics" - you can join us on Facebook and although most of our recent posts are in French we really strive to give our non-French fans their part of the fun. Right now we are actually working on translating more episodes of the Season ("saison" lol) Two. Again, thanks for the love... would you mind us pointing to your article on our FB page?

Truly yours,

Sugar Stories :)

I absolutely LOVE "Sugar Stories" and I've been meaning to write about it for a long time. Sorry for the delay. Please feel free to direct people to my posting. I would love it. And, I'm looking forward to reading more. I checked out your FB page a little while ago and was just thrilled to see all of this new material. French or English, I will still follow it.

Thank you for your great piece about Sugar Stories - Jan is currently updating English translations of all of the episodes to date of the current season, Season 2, which I'm translating into English in collaboration with him. (Jan is the photographer of Sugar Stories). I just discovered it a month ago through an article about it in 'Le Monde' and I've been hooked on Sugar Stories ever since.
