Storyline

Two gay friends, Vince and Stuart, live on a cocktail of sex, drugs and clubbing. They are both 29, and Stuart is the type of guy who cops off every time he goes out. One night, he spots 15-year-old Nathan, and brings him back to his apartment where they make love. Now, Nathan is still after Stuart, but Stuart just thinks of Nathan as one in a long line of one night stands. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The role of Alexander was written for Phil Collinson, a good friend of writer and creator Russell T. Davies. However when Antony Cotton arrived for the audition, everyone agreed that he was better suited to the role. Collinson went on to be a producer, and was hired by Davies to produce Doctor Who (2005).

Hard hitting, funny, emotional and erotic gay drama.
13 March 1999 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

When I first heard of the planned screening of this series I thought it was going to be another in a long line of angst ridden gay dramas . But I couldn't have been further from the truth! Queer as Folk has everything a good drama needs: love, sex, betrayal, drugs, comedy, life and death. Throw in the first time underage sex has been portrayed somewhat graphically on TV, and Queer As Folk is what you get.

This series doesn't moralise-in-your-face on the characters actions.

The focus is on three gay guys living in Manchester. Vince (29), lovable, steady and reliable with a secret passion for Stuart (29), his wealthy, arrogant and bed-hopping best mate. Into their lives walks Nathan, a 15 yr-old schoolboy taking his first steps into life as a gay man. However, Nathan though naive, is no shrinking violet - he knows what he wants and plans on getting it. The acting is superb, along with the camerawork and direction. All in all, this is a TV series that should be compulsive viewing for everyone that sees it.
