Why would a woman be interested in a show about a bunch of Gay friends in Pittsburgh? Well, if the engaging characters and intense storylines aren’t enough for you – and they certainly rival any ever presented in TV or film – then the cast certainly will. Queer As Folk may be about gay characters, but those characters are played by some of the most beautiful actors and actresses, both gay and straight, that you’ve ever seen.
In addition to the magnificent Mr. Harold, we have Hal Sparks and Scott Lowell who are also straight and gorgeous. Robert Gant has not disclosed his preference, but he’s so good looking it doesn’t matter – everyone loves him. Randy Harrison and Peter Paige are openly gay, but that hasn’t discouraged their throngs of female fans. After all, Girls love Gay Boys.
Last, but not least, we have Thea and Michelle. Both are straight women playing lesbian characters. If, as a woman, you don’t find these two attractive, you can rest assured that you are most certainly straight. It hasn’t escaped our attention that THEA is the greek word for “GODDESS” and she couldn’t be more aptly named. Michelle is both tough and tender as the more “butch” of the Pittsburgh gang’s newly married couple.
The real strength of the cast is not their attractiveness. It’s their talent. In the first two seasons of Queer As Folk, we’ve been treated to some of the finest acting performances imaginable. If you haven’t see the show, tune it in, rent the tapes or buy the DVD. You owe it to yourself to experience the new era in television programing – an era that shows a side of life never seen before with style, with grace and with PRIDE.
