TV show description:
This drama follows the lives of a group of young gay men and women living in the Philadelphia area.
Brian Kinney (Gale Harold) is a veritable sex machine who’s living only for the here and now. He’s self-centered, young and handsome, and doesn’t care about what others think of him or his sexual orientation. Though he’d never admit it, Brian’s also willing to stand up for what’s right when it counts, no matter what the personal cost.
Brian’s best friend since childhood is Michael Novtny (Hal Sparks). He idolizes Brian and secretly harbors feelings for him, something that Brian is aware of. Michael loves comic books and, as the story begins, works as a manager for a K-Mart-like store where no one knows that he’s gay. Later in the series, he has a long-term relationship with Ben Brucker (Robert Gant), a college professor who’s HIV positive.
