Dyke Central Is Here!

Dyke Central

Homegrown queer web series is set for April release.


Dyke Central is releasing its full first season online this April. It is certainly worth a watch, bringing to the screen freshly unique characters and engaging storylines. The Oakland California based series features a black butch and a genderqueer Filipina in leading roles, supported by a mainly of-color cast including a femme with a beard and several trans actors, making it somewhat trailblazing.

What started out as a small homegrown pilot cast with a mix of professional actors and queer locals has developed into a full-fledged series, supported by many loving fans. Its quality of filming is good for a web-based project that will surely do well in its release on VOD on April 10th, comprised of ten twenty-minute episodes.

Dyke Central was included in “Lesbian Web Series” short lists by Buzzfeed, AfterEllen, and others. Episode 2 (“Taboo”, now on YouTube”) screened at the Dinah Shore Film Festival, Fusion, Inside Out Toronto, and Outfest; and Frameline, the world’s largest LGBTQ film festival, screened a feature-length compilation of episodes. This seems to have gained them some much-deserved popularity on YouTube, as their pilot episode has now reached (on March 8th 2015) an impressive 98,506 views.


As of midnight on Friday, April 10, fans will be able to stream all ten episodes, plus a behind-the-scenes featurette, on a pay-per-view VOD platform linked through DykeCentral.com. Fans can look forward to some exciting additions to the main cast, including LA-based ‘celesbian’ Dalila Ali Rajah (“Cherry Bomb”), celebrated comedian D’Lo (“Looking”, “Transparent”) and androgynous model Rain Dove (“Living Different”).
