      I was so happy to notice the sudden spike in LGBT content, just as I was really wishing for it. Since having to fall back into the closet here in WV, I’ve been starved for gay life. Sure it’s not the same as being around other real live people, but it at least reminds me of what it used to be like to have friends and to be able to be myself.

      The version of Queer As Folk that Hulu is showing is the original British version and not the version that ran on Showtime(that you show a picture from). Still it’s good to know about the channel.

      No offense but some of your links for the hulu movies are wrong. Try children of god for a chance, it sends you to a documentary

      Brad, Brad World and some of the other shows are just clips, not full episodes. :(

      This is awesome! I wonder if you will be able to watch Dantes Cove and The Lair, haha. I definitely want to see the British Queer as Folk. Already saw the US one and I love British accents!

      That’s awesome to hear, especially since LOGO is apparently going to show more “mainstream” programs.

      @Bob, the British QAF has Charlie Hunam from Sons of Anarchy. This was before he beefed up his body and in fact played the twink character, He was 19 playing 15. @Pixie, Brad Brad World, Queer Eye and other shows that originated on Bravo are shown at Bravo’s discretion and right now they are only letting them show clips.

      That is GREAT news. The problem so often is that gay films are made by small companies that don’t have deals with Netflix or Amazon etc… so Hulu is great!

      I realized how bad the problem was when I couldn’t find “Beautiful Thing” on Netflix OR Amazon streaming.

      Here is the correct link for CHILDREN OF GOD:

      http://www.hulu.com/watch/350781/children-of-god

      There are some really excellent films available and it is a very exciting advance to have an LGBT category on Hulu — by the way, YouTube Movies has also done the same thing and they have a ton of great content as well.

      Here’s a link to Wolfe Video founder Kathy Wolfe’s HuffPo piece about the work Wolfe did behind the scenes to make this happen:

      Sadly for those of us outside of the U.S. (I’m in Canada), Hulu doesn’t work. *sigh*

      British QAF > American QAF. By miles.

      And no Eating Out? YAY!!!!

      Bummer the version of QAF they included was the short-lived British one instead of the US Showtime version. All in all Hulu’s gay/lesbian channel’s selection looked rather disappointing.
