Club Babylon is back for a new generation with the reboot of Queer as Folk, premiering on Thursday, June 9, on Peacock TV. Based on the original British series and popular U.S. Remake in the early 2000s, the show follows a group of queer friends living in New Orleans through significant hurdles in life, love, and getting by. Brodie has returned home after two years away and finds his friends largely moved on. As he struggles to find his place in the community again, a dramatic event shakes everyone. It should be noted that the first season deals heavily with gun violence and the traumatic aftermath, which is painfully timely these days. Read on to learn how to stream the Queer as Folk TV series.
