Queer As Folk

Queer as Folk is a 1999 British television series that chronicles the lives of three gay men living in Manchester's gay village around Canal Street. Initially running for eight episodes, a two-part follow up called Queer As Folk 2 was shown in 2000. Both Queer as Folk and Queer as Folk 2 were written by Russell T Davies.

Queer as Folk was produced by the Red Production Company for Channel 4. The title of the programme comes from a Yorkshire dialect expression from some parts of Northern England, "there's nowt so queer as folk", meaning "there's nothing as strange as people"; which is a word play on the modern-day English synonym of "queer", meaning homosexual. Davies had originally titled the series this, although at the suggestion of Channel 4 executives for a period during its development and pre-production it was known as Queer as F***, before it reverted to the former name.

A Canadian-American co-production ran between December 2000 and August 2005 and was produced for Showtime. Based on the British series created by Russell T Davies, Queer as Folk was the first hour-long drama on American television to portray the lives of gay men and women. Although it was set in Pittsburgh, PA, much of the series was actually shot in Toronto and employed various Canadian directors known for their independent film work.

    I was beat up pretty badly on the third day of school [when I was 12-years-old] because three guys thought I was a gay boy. I got six stitches in my head, was slammed into a locker, got a fractured rib. I insisted I was a girl. I had really short hair and stuff, and so they beat me up.

    Caitlyn Jenner

    Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, is an American former track and field athlete and current television personality.

    Jenner came to international attention when, while still identifying as a man, she won the gold medal in the decathlon at the 1976 Summer Olympics held in Montreal. Subsequently she starred in several made-for-TV movies and was briefly Erik Estrada's replacement on the TV series CHiPs.

    Jenner was married for nearly 24 years to Kris Jenner (formerly Kardashian); the couple and their children appeared beginning in 2007 on the television reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Following her divorce in 2015, Jenner came out in a television interview as a transwoman, initially preferring male pronouns until her transition was more complete. On June 1, 2015, Jenner revealed her new name, Caitlyn, and her use of female pronouns officially. Many news sources have described Jenner as the most famous openly transgender American.
