Showtime’s groundbreaking show Queer as Folk is coming to an end with season 5, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late for you to get in on the critically acclaimed hit. We’re giving away five copies of the first season on DVD, which is, numerically speaking, the exact right place to start watching a TV show.
The show was groundbreaking for its portrayal of gay characters (and not its portrayal of the folk music scene. You can imagine how shocked Pete Seeger was when he tuned in. I am unclear if he was titillated). As the people in charge of this country become more and more homophobic, it’s important that the culture continues to become more accepting.
How do you win one of these 6 disc DVD sets, complete with commentaries and introductions by Hal "Oh Like You Didn’t Completely Know It" Sparks? Simple – write me an email telling me who your favorite gay character in the history of television is.
Now, I know there haven’t been that many gay TV characters, so you may have to get creative. It’s more fun that way!
