The "May Day Home Stay Gay Play" event will serve as a fundraiser for CenterLink (the same organization GLAAD raised money for during their "Together in Pride: You Are Not Alone" celebration) 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.
Queer as Folk was one of the first shows to center on LGBTQ+ people and was adapted from the late '90s British drama of the same name, transporting the queer characters to Pittsburgh and featuring bold depictions of sex, drugs, homophobia, and HIV.
Scott Lowell, who portrayed Ted on QAF is set to host the reunion, with other confirmed cast members including 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.
"May Day Home Stay Gay Play" is planned for Friday at 11am PT/2pm ET on YouTube!
