We chat about Pride season and discuss episode eight of Queer as Folk, where we find many variations of power dynamics at play, as well as the dichotomy pride and shame. Vince slams the car door on commitment to Cameron, Stuart smashes the shop window of homophobia, Nathan gets to kick a queer bashing classmate out of the gay bar. The season ends o…
 
Our discussion keeps circling back to adulthood, or rather becoming an adult. What is our generation to do when we can no longer rely on, or afford, the markers of adulthood that were afforded to the generation before us, like cars and houses? Episode seven of Queer as Folk holds a large helping of (men failing at) adulting, a side dish of performi…
 
In 1999 in the faraway land of Manchester there are many ways to form family. What does episode six of Queer as Folk teach us about family? We found many opposites at work here: marriage/divorce, family of origin/chosen family and the spectrum between accepting and non-accepting parents. Do we owe our parents to come out to them? At the end of epis…
 
Queer + folklore = What does “queer” and “folklore” mean on this podcast? Is folklore queer? This is our first episode NOT discussing the tv-show Queer as Folk. This is, however, NOT a minisode even though we say so in the intro. In the first part of the episode we discuss many things queer, often on a personal level. The second part is based on Ch…
 
Strap in for a hands-on, pink, denim, fill-in-the-blank overview of episode five of Queer as Folk! Towards the end we lightly touch upon the concept of dating culture. Our discussion on adulting and gay archetypes was lost due to technical difficulties but the themes will be revisited in upcoming episodes! Hosts Arwen, Marianne and Charlotta talk a…
 
Death is a recurring theme in the series. We talk about funeral traditions and queer death studies. We consider the different relationships between gays and their mothers and Charlotta shares a story from an interaction with her own mother. We swing around to masturbation folklore and end up talking about different sex shops we’ve visited. Episode …
 
Death, disease and drugs. Camp, queer and characterizations. Fat, food and phobias. Spaces, scenes and sex, notably threesomes. Episode three of Queer as Folk: It happened one night… Camp Alexander arrives in Manchester with his friend Dane and his boy toy Lee, and the rest of the Gay Gaggle (Stuart, Vince, Phil) head out to the clubs on Canal Stre…
 
We get into queer history and sexual narratives. We open with a piece of local Finnish queer history that relates to Queer as Folk in a surprising way! Then we head off into some sex talk: specifically sex acts seen in Queer as Folk and sexual narratives in general. On a more personal note: Is it possible to re-write the sexual scripts that culture…
 
Coming out continues as a theme in episode two of Queer as Folk. We get into 00s fashion, boybands and queerbaiting, straight pubs and the gay scene. Also queer folk art, namely the AIDS Memorial Quilts. Stuart goes on a manhunt at work, teen Nathan checks out butts at school and his friend Donna is finally named, and has the most best fashion sens…
