Happy 45th Birthday to Gale Harold!
I like to always make note of Gale Harold’s birthday for a couple of reasons.
First of all, he’s a fine actor whose portrayal of Brian Kinney on HBO’s Queer as Folk was one of the most sexy and delicious of any male gay character on television – ever.
Secondly, I will no doubt hear from his many loyal fans from around the world who will remind me that today is Gale’s birthday – he turns 45.
Last year, Gale was asked about the challenges of same-sex love scenes for an actor.
“I’m straight, but the character was too important to me to muddle his world with my private life,’ he said. ‘As a nobody, I got away with that deflection. I think it may have helped to introduce Brian as a believable gay man. Maybe not. However it played, it’s been out of my hands for a long time”.
