Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Tampa Baes is a reality series that features an all-lesbian cast living in the LGBTQ-friendly city of Tampa.

Logos for brands like Nike and Champion are visible on clothing.
Is It Any Good?
This formulaic series features the on-goings of a group of self-defined lesbians as they work on interpersonal relationships and party. Much of the drama is driven by the tension between the two dominant couples in the group, but a lot of it also comes from the romantic interests and dating lives of different cast members. Meanwhile, all of it eventually leads to gossip, arguing, drink throwing, and other common reality fare. While there's some discussion about lesbian culture and community, most of what Tampa Baes offers is contrived moments mainly intended for entertainment.
