A Brand New Musical About Grindr And Murder, Oh My!

It’s taken long enough, but a short musical masterpiece about the wonderfully relevant gay “dating” app Grindr is finally zero feet away! We’re told it’s “basically Sweeny Todd meets Grindr” and has “possible murderous undertones.” Yikes!

Grind stars Rent‘s Anthony Rapp, Pasha Pellosie (Project Runway) and Claire Coffee (Grimm) and will head out to the festival circuits in the next few weeks. According to the show’s IndieGogo page, the short film “takes a sexy and artistic look at the ways we connect in today’s multi screened hook up culture and asks, ‘Do you really know who you’re talking to?’”

Intrigued? So are we:

Vincent is uncomfortable in his own skin but he’s witty and adroit on his favorite hook-up app.

Thane is hot (like…incredibly hot) but he’s dumb and can’t express himself.

When Thane asks Vincent to grind for him by combining his own underwear model pics with Vincent’s flirty texted banter, he’s certain the partnership will attract the clever guys who don’t take him seriously.

Thane is introduced to a new class of men but Vincent gets addicted to the rush he’s always assumed the beautiful people feel as they all navigate the competitive, multi screened hook up culture of New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen.

As their paths run through darker territory both men will question: Is a monster created or revealed?

    This is the garbage Queerty is pushing down our throats when there are real news stories out there. People do have to be careful of who they meet online by web or app.

    Kent, OH. A 22 year old young man from Alliance, OH named Justin Tyler Earley went missing 12/31/2013. He dead body was found on 01/18/2014 in Kent OH. He was found in the apartment of John Fox, 34 of Kent, OH. Fox has been arrested in the alleged murder. It looks like they met through Craigslist or possibly Backpage. There is a lot of shade going on online and people need to be aware of that. Not some dumb ass musicals and bullshit fluff pieces about Nick Gruber or Tom Daley.

    I don’t understand why a movie hasn’t been done about porn producer Brian Kocis’ murder. Or the republican radio-host zealot in NYC who was killed by a teenage online Craigslist hookup who did exactly what he wanted: tied him up and killed him (though the hypocrite didn’t actually mean to be killed outright).

    @CleJoke: Sweetie, look at the top of the page. That little box next to the title that says ‘Search Queerty’. Type in “murder” and click the magnifing glass. You’ll find our friends here has posted numerous examples of how dangerous the world is for us—in and out of the anonymous dating scene.
    Thank you, for sharing Justin’s story. I’m sorry he’s gone. And, I hope people will be more careful in the future. Justin went to the home of a convicted sex offender. Could he have found out before going to meet him? I don’t know. But, the words of your mom to ‘not get in the car with a stranger’ still have weight when you grow up.
