Based on the British smash-hit series of the same name created by Russell T. Davies (Doctor Who), the American version of Queer As Folk is a sexy and controversial ensemble drama of the funniest order. The action centres around the gay thumpa-thumpa, the tribal throbbing that pervades club Babylon on Liberty Avenue and tackles issues including gay bashing, drugs, casual sex, same sex marriage, AIDS, relationships and friendship but never forgetting that the queers are loud and proud, rude and crude, front and centre.
