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. Both Queer as Folk and Queer as Folk 2 were written by Russell T Davies. The first series was re-shown on More 4 between 14 and 18 October 2007, as part of Channel 4's 25th-birthday celebrations.Queer as Folk was produced by the Red Production Company for Channel 4. The title of the programme comes from a 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 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 Fuck, before it reverted to the former name.Queer as Folk featuring Aidan Gillen and Charlie Hunnam has one or more episodes streaming with subscription on Netflix, streaming with subscription on Prime Video, streaming via tv everywhere with Showtime Anytime, and 5 others. It's a drama and LGBTQ show with 89 episodes over 5 seasons. Queer as Folk is no longer running and has no plans to air new episodes or seasons. It has a very high Rotten Tomatoes (critics) score of 100% and a high IMDb audience rating of 8.1 (5,435 votes).
