Even though Showtime's super-hit show "Queen as Folk" has finished its run, the show still lives on -- and not only on DVD! This gay-oriented program made history by airing the very first explicit sex scene between two men (albeit simulated) ever to air on American television. In addition, "Queer as Folk" broke plot line boundaries by tackling controversial issues like gay marriage, adoption of children by same-sex couples, illegal drug use, HIV awareness, sexual discrimination in the workplace, and even homosexuality among Catholic priests. "Queer as Folk" was a great program to be sure, but it also served the greater good by standing out as a banner for gay rights and advocacy of homosexual and bisexual lifestyles.
