After he played Emmett on the iconic gay series Queer as Folk, Peter Paige co-created The Fosters, about a family with two moms. Now behind the camera, he reflects on how much things have changed.
The teen comedy-drama — about two girls who pretend to be lesbians — was initially the subject of criticism, but the show channels the confusion of adolescence to broaden portrayals of the sexual spectrum.
The first season of HBO’s Looking closed with the theme song from The Golden Girls, a testament to the ’80s sitcom’s enduring effect on gay men. Here’s why queer people continue to flock to the series, nearly 30 years after its premiere.

According to HBO’s new series about three gay men in San Francisco, the City by the Bay is a land where facial hair is plentiful. Here are the beard-y moments from the first three episodes, ranked from worst to best.

With The Days of Anna Madrigal, now in stores, Armistead Maupin concludes the nine-novel Tales of the City series he began in 1976. I spoke to Maupin about plotting a story over decades, the changing nature of gay identity, and saying good-bye to the characters he loves.

HBO’s drama about the “real lives” of 20 and 30-something gay men in San Francisco stars Jonathan Groff and premieres January 19th.
The out actor plays gay in the new film C.O.G., and while that doesn’t mean he wants to be boxed in, Groff is hoping that his upcoming LGBT-centric projects expand the representation of the diverse community in movies and TV.
