Still Queer as Folk

Hosted ByPatrick Randall & Matt Dominguez

A critical review and analysis of Showtime's Queer as Folk presented by two bitchy and sometimes jaded gay guys. Listen in as we take apart the stories, screenplays, characters and aspects of the show that haven't aged well. Nothing is off limits, be it music, costumes, sets, or acting. We're huge fans of the show, but you would probably never know it after listening to Still Queer as Folk. All five seasons are covered, recorded between 2018-2021. Check out the Still Queer as Folk UK podcast for our take on the original.

5.08 Honest to Yourself

Brian’s midlife crisis reaches a head when he wins his bet with Brandon, but opts not to collect his reward. Drew Boyd is outed in a tabloid and turns to Emmett for advice. When the paparazzi track him down, he hides out in Emmett’s bedroom. 

Ben continues to stress over Hunter’s departure and clashes with Michael as he begins giving away Hunter’s possessions. Lindsay and Melanie begin their home-separation with mixed results, and Justin confronts his father over his supporting the anti-gay initiative Proposition 14 and ends up being arrested. 

It first aired in the US on July 3rd, 2005 and was written by Michael MacLennan, his 13th of 14 episodes. He would later go on to write two episodes of Peter Paige’s show, The Fosters. 

“Honest to Yourself” was directed by Kevin Inch, his 8th of 8 episodes. He directed one of our favorite episodes, of course from Season 1, “Ted’s not Dead”
