1 GIRL 5 GAYS has been a hit with both Canadian and American audiences. Since Logo began airing the MTV Canada original series south of the border in October 2010, it has become one of the network’s most-talked about shows. The series brings together host Aliya-Jasmine Sovani with a panel of five gay men for frank, funny, and often fierce discussions on a variety of topics. The alternating panel of gay men, chosen for their honesty, individuality, and confidence, never shy away from the outrageous or anything remotely taboo. Conversations revolve around everything from masturbation, Madonna, and matrimony to embarrassing erections, coming out, and childhood experiences.

1G5G airs Fridays at 11 p.m. ET on MTV. Catch up on past episodes at mtv.ca. Catch an encore presentation of the 2011 NEWNOWNEXT AWARDS on Tuesday, April 12 at 1 a.m. ET/PT.
