Like ''Series/SexAndTheCity'', except with ''men'' in the stereotypical gay man roles. Also compare ''Series/TheLWord'' (for lesbians), and ''NoahsArc'' (for Black gay men).

->"''Queer as Folk'' is a celebration of the lives and passions of a group of gay friends. It is not meant to reflect all of gay society" ->Show disclaimer. ''Queer As Folk'' was originally conceived by Creator/RussellTDavies as a comedy drama set in Manchester's gay village. It followed the lives of three gay men: swaggering, self-assured Stuart Allen Jones, his less-self-assured best friend Vince Tyler who has an unrequited crush on him, and their new friend Nathan Maloney, a young man just finishing school and discovering the Scene.

** [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] in the UK version. Stuart definitely fits this bill, but he's shown to have some deep-seated psychological insecurities. Vince also seems to fit this, but he's emulating Stuart and has the least amount of hookups (and one serious boyfriend). [[spoiler: They also both settle down together]]. Stuart's views seem lean this way, though. He accuses Vince of being a straight guy who has sex with men because he wants a relationship instead of casual sex.

* NotWithThemForTheMoney: Emmett genuinely falls in love with a wealthy older man who dies and leaves his fortune to Emmett, but includes the clause that he not be publicly outed as a gay man. Emmett struggles with the idea of being rich or being honest, and eventually decides it's more important to tell the world who George was and that they loved each other than to have money.

** Drew Boyd. Emmett is insistent he is gay despite the fact he says he enjoys sleeping with women and cares about his fiance. Later, when [[spoiler: he is outed and admits feelings for Emmett, he does say he is gay. The possibility that he is bisexual is never given consideration, not even the possibility that he can be romantically and sexually more attracted to men while still being attracted to women in some way as well. It is implied he has thought about men while with women though.]]

In the UK the age of consent is 16.
** Though the moment is somewhat undercut by the fact that he did sleep with a fifteen-year-old at twenty-nine.
