TV Show "It's a Sin" Gay Sex, Shame, and AIDS, Ryan Field Books

 TV Show “It’s a Sin” Gay Sex, Shame, and AIDS

There’s a new TV show in the UK called “It’s a Sin.” I had a chance to watch the first episode and I loved it. It’s set in the UK, in the early days of AIDS, and it shows what life was like before AIDS became known widely as a deadly pandemic. No one really knew what it was in the earliest days. It’s well-written, the characters are likable, and nothing seemed contrived to me. 

There is also a graphic and unsparing exploration of the horrific homophobia of that time, and the demonization and then—if that were not vile enough—the erasure of gay lives as they were lost; men left to die in silent rooms, their partners and friends blanked from the last chapters of their lives, their funerals, and kicked out of their homes by shocked, vindictive families.

Here’s more. It’s also from the creator of Queer as Folk, Russell T. Davies, and he does not disappoint in any single area. This is one of those TV shows you’ll want to see.

“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”
