Queer as Folk interview British verison

Queer as Folk’s original name was Queer as Fuck. That title was on the front page of the very first script, and it lasted well into rehearsals. In the end we went with the softer version, not because it was less confrontational – though I still don’t know what we’d have done if we had to talk about it on Richard and Judy – but because it felt like it suited the project. The line comes from the film The Full Monty: there’s a scene between Robert Carlyle and Mark Addy, who are looking at a gay couple, and Mark’s character says: “Well, there’s nowt so queer as folk.” It stuck.
