Season One Trailer

Season one

History follows Jamie (Jack Tracy), a thirty-something gay New York lawyer, in the days after a messy breakup with his partner of five years, Jared (Andrew Lipson).  Through juxtaposed flashbacks, the audience watches Jamie’s evolution—or lack thereof—on issues of intimacy, sex, gender role conformity and friendships as he rebuilds his life on his own terms.

History premiered in October 2016 on Vimeo and YouTube.  All six episodes have since been distributed on LGBTQIA streaming networks Dekkoo and Revry.

Our hats are off to Tracy, and his entire cast and crew, for this beautifully produced series that was such a sheer joy to watch, and we hope they will be back with Series 2 very soon.

REVIEWS/PRESS


Tracy’s tale so succinctly captures the contemporary lifestyle of young gay man in NY dealing with such issues as forming bonding friendships, rejection, online hookups, hangups with sexual role-playing and perceived masculinity in a culture that has moved on from being dominated by the AIDS crisis.

It is refreshingly warm, witty, extremely funny, with more than its share of sadness too.

You don’t have to be gay or male to know what it’s like going through the things Jamie encounters, processing what has happened to you and trying to come out the other end a better man. I really enjoyed this series and am hoping there will be more.
— ActingHour.com
My only goal is for the audience to say, “Oh, I know this”. I want people to see themselves, see their friends, and maybe see a new point of view on issues they themselves face in their relationships and friendships.
— Jack Tracy (creator) to Gaysi
Not very often we have the occasion to encounter such a vast and well written plot, and frankly, this is all that we can care about right now.
— Feel The Reel International Film Festival
totally fresh, totally original, totally gay material
— BoyCulture.com
this is a show about certain types of gay people living a certain type of gay life, but the underlying truths — rejection, loss, gender conformity, love, loyalty and friendship — they apply to everyone
— Jack Tracy (creator) to Stareable.com
