Still Queer as Folk UK

Hosted ByPatrick Randall & Matt Dominguez

After recording 88 episodes of the US version of Queer as Folk, Patrick and Matt turn their attention to the original. The masterpiece that started it all. In Still Queer as Folk UK, your favorite (?) bitchy and sometimes catty gay guys give a critical analysis of one of the best examples of episodic gay fiction ever televised. Stay tuned after we cover all 10 episodes for a special US vs UK edition!

UK-2.1 Out of the Closet

Nathan is back from London and living with his now divorced mother. Janice Maloney is now cool with Nathan’s sexuality and they even share laughs over Nathan’s campy boyfriend Daz. Stuart and Vince start a threesome, but instead of cutting out the middleman, Vince cuts himself out leaving the trick to Stuart. Later, at Vince’s sister’s wedding, they agree to share a hotel room with the intent of consummating their 16 year fascination with each other. Once again, Vince pulls the plug on it though. Alexander’s father has a stroke and he’s summoned to the hospital by his mother only to find out that she really wants him to sign documents disinheriting him from his wealthy father’s estate.

“Out of the Closet” was directed by the Bangladeshi director Menhaj Huda.  It first aired in the UK on 15th February, 2000, and that was 11 months after series 1 ended.  Interestingly enough, the US version of the show premiered only 10 months later in December of 2000, which meant it would have been in production while series 2 aired.
