I remember maybe twenty years ago, a Danish satiric cartoonist (the talented Nicoline Verdelin) made a strip where you saw two men dancing, poker-faced and very stiff, at arm's length. And somebody asked what that was, and the answer was: "two gays dancing in a British TV series."
My, how times have changed in a hurry. I just watched the first episode of the British Queer As Folk, thinking it was a comedy show. What it was, was more like gay porn. Full nudity and full-on sex scenes, only thing missing is the actual erections and penetrations. And if things continue this way, I won't be surprised if we can see those also, withing ten or twenty years.
Of course you could say the same thing about The L-Word. But that's with pretty women, so I quite liked that. :)
I'm just surprised, not complaining. Anything that breaks down more taboos, I'm all for.
