"Queer as Folk" Timeline

by Gaedhal

This "QAF Timeline" is based on my own reading of the series "Queer as Folk -- US" and understanding of the progress of events. I put it together to facilitate the writing of my own fanfiction stories and so I end it shortly after the Second Season begins when my own AU series timeline begins to diverge. Any suggestions, comments, additions, or quibbles should be addressed to me. As I say, this is extremely unofficial and subject to interpretation!

First Season

Ep. 101 Gus is born, Justin meets Brian (a "school night").

Ep. 102 The Boys at work, Michael's breeder night out, the Girls want Brian's money (the next day or so).

Ep. 112 Brian alone, Michael moves in with Dr. Dave.

Dec. 2000

Ep. 114 Brian in trouble, Kip drops the suit, Justin's Birthday (18th).

Ep. 119 Jack dies, the Funeral from Hell, Ted and Blake, Brian and Michael go bowling -- Brian wears the "Jack" shirt (from which sprang a seemingly never-ending series of chapters!)

Ep. 121 Brian's ad award/NYC, Vic exonerated.

Sept. 2001 Ep. 202 Gus' first birthday, 1st anniversary of B&J meeting.
