As we mark Queer as Folk’s 20th anniversary it now seems impossible to imagine the sense of shock and awe that accompanied its first transmission in 1999. From its uncompromising title to the unflinching and provocative celebration of three gay men’s lives in Manchester, the series felt totally new and intoxicating – both building on the advances of an exhilarating decade and ushering in a new, unapologetic and more diverse world for the millennium. Join writer Russell T Davies and cast members as we celebrate this true TV game-changer.
