Queer as Folk Cast to Reunite, Raise Money for LGBTQ Centers

QAF

A virtual reunion with the cast of the American iteration of Queer as Folk, which aired on Showtime from 2000 to 2005, is planned for May 1, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The "May Day Home Stay Gay Play" event will serve as a fundraiser for CenterLink, the same organization GLAAD is raising money for during their "Together in Pride: You Are Not Alone" celebration tonight — CenterLink is a coalition of more than 250 LGBTQ community centers in the U.S., Canada, China, Mexico, and Australia. The QAF reunion, held 20 years after the groundbreaking drama debuted on U.S. television, will offer bids on show merchandise, with proceeds benefiting CenterLink.

Scott Lowell, who potrayed Ted on QAF, will host "May Day Home Stay Gay Play." Other confirmed castmembers include Randy Harrison, Michelle Clunie, Peter Paige, Sharon Gless, Hal Sparks, Robert Gant, and show creators Ron Cowen and Dan Lipman. Other stars, like Thea Gill and Gale Harold, may also participate. 

The event is planned for Friday at 11 a.m. PT/2 p.m. ET on YouTube.

Queer as Folk, one of the first shows to center on LGBTQ people, was adapted from the late '90s British drama, transporting the queer characters to Pittsburgh and featuring bold depictions of sex, drugs, homophobia, and HIV.
