Hi everybody! 

I'm Gio. I'm a 30-year-old girl, I'm Italian (from Milano) and I'm in love with Brian and Justin.

I have a degree in Italian Literature (I taught Literature, History and Philosophy). I also worked as a journalist, but then I got kind of bored and took a Master in Web design and Web editing...Now I make Web sites and multimedia projects.

About the Site, 2010:

This site was created with a lot of love and admiration for all the hard work and enjoyment that Gio has given the QaF fandom over the years. I wanted to be able to preserve the site as it was and a big, big thank you to the original owner, Gio, for giving me her support and encouragement. So, first of all, thank you so much to Gio (paddies) for allowing me to host the original site. While other sites come and go, it brings me a lot of joy to see this one still around for Queer as Folk fans past, present, and future. 

Another huge thank you goes to two wonderful women who are also known in Queer as Folk fandom for their awesome fandom works. Thank you to the ever awesome Alex (ohfreckle) for your work on the banner of the site. You always do such gorgeous art and I know that the archive is tremendously improved because of your contribution.

Thank you to the fabulous Ree (url_girl) for being the wonderful cheerleader that you always are! Your suggestions, comments, and advice were so incredibly helpful to me during this whole process and I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate it. Thanks so much, bb! 

Thank you so much for all the general encouragements that were received while I was setting this up. To those people, I really, really appreciate the cheerleading! 

Thank you to everyone who's contributed to this site in the past, the authors, the recaps, the transcripts, and the quotes. 

And finally, thank you for reading!

Any questions, comments, concerns can be directed to: amelia.lourdes@gmail.com. I'll get back to you as soon as possible. Please let me know if any link on the fanfic page has expired and I'll try to repair it as quickly as I can. I'm aware that the clip page has a few missing links. And, I'm still working on several formatting issues but all other links should be working properly.
