Der Schauplatz: Pittsburgh. Wie so oft im Fernsehen geht es hier um junge Leute in ihren 20ern und 30ern - um Liebe, Freundschaft, Familie, Beruf. Aber damit erschöpfen sich die Gemeinsamkeiten mit anderen Serien. Denn Queer as Folk zeigt uns schnörkellos und direkt, verblüffend und mitreißend, wie Schwule heute leben. Die sechs DVDs dieser Collection enthalten alle 22 Episoden der ersten Staffel: Michael, Emmett, Ted, Justin und der arrogante Playboy Brian verlieben sich - meist in die falschen Männer, gelegentlich aber auch die richtigen. In der Serie "outen sich die schwulen TV-Helden mit echtem Knalleffekt" (James Poniewozik, Time). Der Soundtrack ist genauso fetzig und hip wie das Leben der Hauptfiguren: Queer as Folk rüttelt uns durch, begeistert uns - und lässt uns die Welt in neuem Licht sehen.Darsteller:Adam Chuckryk, Adam Cole, Adam Harrington, Alec McClure, Alex Poch-Goldin, Alexander Pervakov, Andre Matthews, Andrea Scott, Andrew Strachan, Anthony Mancini Jr., Barbara Radecki, Barna Moricz, Ben Bass, Bill Lake, Bob Desrosiers, Brad Garrick, Brian McQuinn, Bruce Gray, Carlo Rota, Carolyn Taylor, Charmaine D.

Ismail Boxwala made the worst mistake of his life one summer morning twenty years ago: he forgot his baby daughter in the back seat of his car. After his daughter's tragic death, he struggles to continue living. A divorce, years of heavy drinking, and sex with strangers only leave him more alone and isolated. But Ismail's story begins to change after he reluctantly befriends two women: Fatima, a young queer activist kicked out of her parents' home; and Celia, his grieving Portuguese-Canadian neighbour who lives just six metres away. A slow-simmering romance develops between Ismail and Celia. Meanwhile, dangers lead Fatima to his doorstep. Each makes complicated demands of him, ones he is uncertain he can meet. 1.

Leading historian Lynn Hunt rethinks why history matters in today’s global world and how it should be written. George Orwell wrote that "history is written by the winners." Even if that seems a bit too cut-and-dried, we can say that history is always written from a viewpoint but that viewpoints change, sometimes radically. The history of workers, women, and minorities challenged the once-unquestioned dominance of the tales of great leaders and military victories. Then, cultural studies - including feminism and queer studies - brought fresh perspectives, but those too have run their course. With globalization emerging as a major economic, cultural, and political force, Lynn Hunt examines whether it can reinvigorate the telling of history. She hopes that scholars from East and West can collaborate in new ways and write wider-ranging works. At the same time, Hunt argues that we could better understand the effects of globalization in the past if we knew more about how individuals felt about the changes they were experiencing. She proposes a sweeping reevaluation of individuals’ active role and their place in society as the keys to understanding the way people and ideas interact. She also reveals how surprising new perspectives on society and the self - from environmental history, the history of human-animal interactions, and even neuroscience - offer promising new ways of thinking about the meaning and purpose of history in our time. 1.
