Are you a fan of Queer as Folk? Recently, the cast reunited and spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the groundbreaking Showtime TV show.
Based on the UK series of the same name, the drama follows the lives of a group of young gay men and women living in the Philadelphia area. The Showtime series ran for five seasons before ending in 2005 and starred Gale Harold, Randy Harrison, Hal Sparks, Scott Lowell, Peter Paige, Sharon Gless, Thea Gill, Michelle Clunie, Robert Gant, Jack Wetherall, and Sherry Miller.
For the first time in nearly 15 years, the cast of Queer as Folk got together to discuss the impact of the Showtime drama, which looked at the lives of gay men and women with an honesty rarely seen on television at the time.
During the interview, star Hal Sparks said he credits the series for moving society forward:
You can see a lot of seeds, I think, in a lot of the movements in society going forward. Not to put too fine a point on it, but I think some of those came directly from this show’s existence.”
