56 Dean Street launches new web series 

Soho-based sexual health clinic 56 Dean Street has recently launched a new web series called The Grass Is Always Grindr. Commissioned by 56 Dean Street, generously supported by Wandsworth Oasis, The Grass Is Always Grindr reflects the complexities of modern gay sex lives, exploring apps, PrEP, barebacking, loneliness and self-esteem across three parts. Written by Patrick Cash and produced by Brown Boy Productions and Dragonflies Productions, the series follows a young gay man, Joe, who is a master at taking selfies. He spends his free time trying to up his followers on Insta or looking for guys on Grindr. One of those shags turns out to be Adam, a handsome boxer who’s still in the closet… The Grass Is Always Grindr has had a great reaction so far with over 7,500 views in a week plus some really positive feedback. Watch it for yourself via 56 Dean Street Official’s YouTube channel.
