Forty-Something Homos Get Screen Time

New Gay Drama Set For Britain

Britain’s bent boys better get excited. Doctor Who and Queer As Folk writer Russell T. Davies announced he’s working on a new gay drama about mid-life homos:

“It’s going to be about fortysomething gay men and how jealous they are of gay teenagers…I’ve been longing to write something for adults.”

In the interview, Davies said that the inspiration for the new drama is a friend, a former Mr Gay UK, who split up from his boyfriend.

“He asked me: ‘Why are so many gay men so glad we split up?’ That remark’s stayed with me for six years. I think there’s a self-punishing streak in that gladness and I want to explore it.”

A bunch of bitchy older queens fighting over younger men? Sounds like a reality show.
