“Queer as Folk” Cast Reuniting for LGBTQ Community Center Fundraiser

Back to Club Babylon!

Get ready to stroll down Liberty Ave without even having to leave your living room.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, cast members from the groundbreaking Showtime series Queer as Folk will reunite May 1 on YouTube for a fundraiser benefiting LGBTQ community centers.

Scott Lowell, who played Ted, will host the virtual reunion with co-stars Sharon Gless, Peter Paige, Michelle Clunie, Hal Sparks, Randy Harrison, and Robert Gant, who are set to participate along with series creators Ron Cowen and Dan Lipman. Other guests are expected to be announced closer to the fundraiser.

Not only will you see Justin, Michael, and the gang together again, you can also bid on Queer as Folk memorabilia and donate funds to support CenterLink and its network of more than 250 LGBTQ community centers around the country. Centerlink, which is based in Fort Lauderdale, was founded in 1994 as a member-based coalition to “support the development of strong, sustainable LGBT community centers.”

This isn’t the first time the QAF cast has reunited since the series ended in 2005; they attended a panel celebrating the series in 2015 at the Austin Television Festival, and they reunited again in 2018 for Entertainment Weekly. A reboot is in the works for Peacock, NBCUniversal’s streaming service.

The 20th anniversary Queer as Folk cast and crew reunion will happen Friday, May 1 at 2pm ET/11am PT on YouTube.
