Storyline

Based on the British series of the same name, Showtime's 'Queer as Folk' presents the American version. Following the lives of five gay men in Pittsburgh, 'Queer as Folk' is a riveting drama full of sex, drugs, adventure, friendship and love. Although the creators of 'Queer as Folk' wanted to present an honest depiction of gay life, it is by no means a comprehensive depiction. In addition to the usual sexual escapades and relationships of the five friends, the show explores critical gay political and health issues. Written by Anna <dimenxia@yahoo.com>

Trivia

According to creators Ron Cowen and Daniel Lipman, when shooting the fourth episode, in the scene where Ted wakes up from the coma to find Brian fucking the nurse, the actor playing the nurse refused to do much nudity or an explicit sex scene. From that moment on, Cowen and Lipman were very clear when casting guest actors -especially for the character's one-night stands- that nudity and graphic sex scenes would be required. See more »

Goofs

There is a hexagon shaped window on the wall between Debbie's front door and the stairs that lead upstairs. In season 1 this window was clear and you could see 'daylight' coming through it. In subsequent seasons the glass panes of this window were covered in gay pride colors and had a non-see-through look. When you see the outside porch and front door of Debbie's house, her house is a semi-detached home with the other half of the house attached to the wall that has the window. See more »

Quotes

Emmett: Apparently Pittsburgh is not ready to handle the fact that not only are queers anatomically corrrect, but they actually use all their parts.

opening one's eyes...
5 May 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

It's about time that filmmakers created a series that doesn't revolve around the trivial and comic relationships of heterosexual couples - many of the sitcoms these days seem to have that theme in there somewhere do they not? It's controversial, often quite graphic and rarely comic - it's an adult 'soap opera' with alot more content than your average. Apart from anything else, Queer As Folk has thrown a revealing light onto the trials and tribulations of gay relationships - proving to those unfamiliar with the subject that they are not relationships that should be ridiculed or discriminated against. Regardless of the moral merits, it's just a really good series. The acting is great and the storyline keeps you watching week after week. The series explores numerous relationships that all differ in some way or another - yet in many ways they are also very much alike. This series can be enjoyed by anyone, despite some of the reviews I've read in the past. In fact, I'd encourage anyone to try it out at least once - you may be presently suprised.
