About this show

Brash humor and genuine emotion make up this original series revolving around the lives, loves, ambitions, careers and friendships of a group of gay men and women living on Liberty Avenue in contemporary Pittsburgh, PA. The show offers an unapologetic look at modern, urban gay and lesbian lives while addressing the most critical health and political issues affecting the community. Sometimes racy, sometimes sensitive and always straight to the heart, QUEER AS FOLK is groundbreaking television at its best.

When it aired on Showtime is was the only program, series, book, porn (it really is just a show with mail nudity and women nudity for that matter), my point is I started watching this around 2001 ish and now that it is 2016 ish we as a society still do not have an accurate depiction of gay life, the struggles, the lessons, heroes, inspiration, etc etc. I mean come on. All these apps are so sensored. We want more than just porn ya know :-/

This show is way deeper than it may seem for the first time. I had a feeling that in the beginning it was all about sex, drugs, partying - to attract the attention of the youth - but in the later seasons they raise so many important issues, it is basically about everything: human rights, gay marriages, adopting kids and raising kids in love, HIV problems and lack of education in this field, violence and response to violence, finding your own path, setting your carrier goals, friendship, honesty, life values... Great show!

I bought this years ago on DVD, and I love this show! I would highly recommend this for any one who's gay, or any one who's open minded with two guys kissing and to how the gay community is like, how we're just like any straight person, just gay, which is ok. Besides that, this show should have earned an Emmy Award back in the day, but it didn't. Anyway and again like I said, I would highly recommend this show to anyone! :)
