Remember “Queer as Folk”?

Hi, friends and readers:

Remember the Showtime original TV series called “Queer as Folk”? The show ran five seasons between 2000 and 2005, and it caused quite a stir in the LGBTQ community. Never before had a television show devoted itself to the gay subculture.

Being a twink lover, I of course liked the character Justin, whom you see to the left, more than any other actor in the show. He was so cute. And I found his cheerful attitude about being gay such a refreshing change from the depressed gay characters I’d seen in other shows.  Justin reveled in his queerness.

Here’s a link to a great video clip from the show, where Justin talks with his mom and his therapist about the joys of anal sex:

Pretty funny, eh?

Well, it’s been a tame day for me, but I managed to walk three miles on the beach before taking a dip in the Gulf. Then I came home and spent 2-1/2 hours editing my friend’s environmental law book. Now it’s a little past five PM and I just opened a beer. I’ll get a nice little buzz on before I prepare dinner–leftovers and a fruit salad. I’ll watch the rest of my Netflix movie, and maybe read from a newly purchased book of stories by James Baldwin.

Have a nice Tuesday night, friends.
