OUT NOW: What’s HBO Done For Us Lately?

It’s a slow week here in queer home entertainment land. A DVD re-release of 1997’s out-of-print snoozer, The Substance of Fire?


Thankfully, we’ve got the first season of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire (above) to keep us busy. It received crazy critical acclaim and co-stars dreamy Michael Pitt—and included a lesbian plotline to boot!

HBO’s pretty much at the top of the food chain when it comes to gay-interest shows: Sex & the City, True Blood, Six Feet Under, Game of Thrones—the list goes on. (And we’ve just started watching Angry Boys, Chris Lilley’s comedic faux documentary with a decidedly queer bent.)

Today we’re going to look at Empire and some HBO series you may have missed or forgotten about. These treasures from the vault all have LGBT content and they’re all available as complete series—so  you won’t have to wait a year between seasons!

FIRST: It’s more than the luck of the draw on Boardwalk Empire

    Your forgot Generation Kill with also featured Alexander Skarsgård. Nothing is gayer than a bunch of Marines making homophobic come on’s to one another unless it’s a bunch of marines making homophobic come on’s to one another that are willing to admit they might just might kinda like the idea of man sex.

    I never realized how hot Michael Pitt is till Boardwalk. He looked amazing in his
    clothes on the show…especially his form fitting slacks. What an ass!!
