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

In the pilot episode, Michael goes through the back room of Babylon looking for Brian. On his way, He sees another friend (who's having sex) and says, "Hey, Todd! How's it going?" Todd looks at him and says, "Fine!" A different character asks Todd the same thing in the first episode of the first, second, fourth, and fifth seasons. 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

Brian: Sunshine, how did I ever get along without you?
Justin: You didn't.

A piece of my life
16 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

This show, has brought the best five years to my life. I started watching the show when I was 13, and was the backbone for my coming out. Without this show, I don't think I would have had the courage to come out when I did. It was like home to me when things got rough. Now 17, I have developed a connection with the characters based on the lifestyle they led and the one I lead. Through the whole last episode, I cried, it was like a part of me had died, remembering that it was the biggest reason why I came out. I already miss the show, and I am anticipating buying the rest of the box sets I'm missing, the two Cd's I'm missing, and the book, to keep in my collection of the greatest t.v show to be aired and the greatest backbone support to gay people around the world. That's all folks!
