Remember watching Queer as Folk, and maybe sometimes jerking off to it? Well, it was shows like this one that helped shape the mentality, and the coming out of gays around the world. TV shows that made it into pop culture, or that started controversy made way for a new, out and proud generation of gays. Queer as Folk aired in 2000 and stayed on till 2005. But, Queer as Folk wasn't the first, Will & Grace first aired in 1998, and was on CBS. Obviously, the stories of Will, Grace, Jack and Karen were a lot less racy, and the shows wasn't as graphic, and it was a sitcom comedy. But, these shows let way for other TV shows like Noah's Ark, Modern Family, DTLA, Glee. Additionally, because of the acceptance and slow progress, gay characters have been introduced on a lot of daytime soap operas, and adult cartoons like Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Archer. Now, we might not agree with some of the story lines that are being pushed, but at least it shows visibility in the media.
