    I’m glad someone else sort of feels the same way I felt while watching the series.

      “his best friend, the British-Nigerian Eric Effiong, is the show’s biggest hit. Played by British-Rwandan actor, Ncuti Gatwa

    I have a problem with the way some tv shows portrays gay men, while they actually meant good portraying us in our so called “living our truth” form: fabulous queer, wearing heels and make up, acting all feminine/fierce. My problem with this narrative s that I find it stereotypical. There are gay men who are genuinely manly, more comfortable dressing and acting like a man and they are living their truth. I might be wrong though but this narrative is not that common in the media. In fact when you act like that, many assumed you are on the closet or trying to conform to societal standard whereas that is who you really are and you are still gay and proud!!

      Please do not take this as an attack but people who make such remarks usually have an extreme level of discomfort with feminine men and if you do fall under that category please its never too late to interrogate it,a lot of gay or let me use the umbrella term queer men in cinema/tv do fit the terms of your requirement Call me by your name,how to get away with murder,moonlight,what/if,empire,now apocalypse off the top of my head has queer male characters with traditionally masculine expressions so yeah you are wrong.

      Oh please!! The two men chasing after Eric weren’t wearing make ups and heels were they? They portrayed both aspects of being gay, the manly gay man and the effeminate. Adam and Rahim are masculine, you manly gay folks are just too toxic, TF!!

      Yes I share this sentiment too, let’s not try Soo hard to push this “flamboyant outlook idea” and forget that some gay men don’t have the past sense of fashion and some are basketballer and gym rats all buffed up and gay!.

      We can just be who we are with choking it down straight people’s throats.

    Only reason I haven’t watched this show is the fact that I can’t stand British accents. I’ve only ever heard good things. Eh.. Hopefully they’ll be a “proper” US remake. Like SKINS.

    I felt exactly the same way when I watched, was thinking there’d be hostility from the parents but the joy it brought me when I noticed it wasn’t the case and the concerns of his father gave me such ease when I watched.. All I wanted was Eric’s scenes it gave me life, and like the writer said it wasn’t just comic relief… It gave the entire movie life!!!
