This problem of being not just erased but whited out is not limited to Queer as Folk but happens across the vast majority of visual depictions of queerness and gayness. To live as a queer person of color in this world is to either continuously confront the reality of your systematic and constant erasure from various narrative forms or to constantly contest the limited ways in which others depict us and our communities. This fact informs me going into HBO’s Looking.
