Queer As Folk. But No "Black" Folks! sign now

As the 3rd Season of the controversial series "Queer As Folk" get's underway, will we find any Blacks portrayed within the storyline? More than likely, NOT!

Going along with GLAAD's mission of ensuring fair, accurate and INCLUSIVE representation of gay people and events in the media, we seek to have the gay community fully represented on Queer as Folk by having atleast one Black character added to the storyline. More than often, black gay man are being negatively-stereotyped and discriminated against in our society and on television, including on Queer As Folk. And this would be a great opportunity to ensure that the gay community as a whole is being fully represented on a show that could have tremendous impact on generations to come, including the lives of black gay men.

As a show that proclaims to portray our society, Queer As Folk is disappointingly missing the one thing that make up our society....DIVERSITY. We'd like to see this changed!

    I agree wholeheartedly with the article. As a black gay man, I am eager to see images of men like me in the popular media (television, movies, etc).
