Plot Synopsis

This one-hour drama series follows the journey of a group of gay friends and lovers living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It may have been a small world -- a gay Main Street with a couple of bars, a disco, a few shops and a diner -- but it resonated with universal themes relevant for West Hollywood, Castro and Chelsea. This critically acclaimed series brings with it mature stories about facing the challenges of same-sex parenting, discrimination, AIDS/HIV, cancer and morality.
On Friday, April 10, 2020 QUEER AS FOLK actor Scott Lowell (Twitter @scolo) announced that to celebrate the upcoming 20th Anniversary of the series the cast & crew will livestream a special QAF reunion on Facebook Live & YouTube Live on Friday, May 1, 2020 at 11am PT/2pm ET/7pm GMT, to raise funds for Center Link: The Community of LGBT Centers and their member centers. Plus, there will be an auction for QAF costumes and memorabilia to benefit CenterLink, The Community of LGBTQ Centers
