|This is a video of Brian and justin named Sex Bomb! Because Brian was always about the sex, as was Justin, though he eventually wanted more, like love. They were a very sensual, sexual, loving couple.|
Brian KinneyWhile his best friend, Michael Novotny, could be the considered the protagonist (Michael narrates the pilot episode as well as the series finale), Brian is definitely the hero. The other characters in the show seem to always be affected by his actions, especially his on and off lover Justin Taylor. Brian, throughout the series, is sexually promiscuous and can usually be found in the back room of the popular gay club Babylon. His biggest fear is to grow old and being in his own words: " a shitty father" to Gus.(His back story is that he came from a broken home with an abusive alcoholic father.) In the pilot, he takes Justin home and takes his virginity. In the same episode, his son, Gus, is born to a lesbian couple. Because of the simultaneousness of these two pivotal events, Brian often associates Gus with Justin, referring to both as "sonny boy." During the first season, his relationship with Justin is unclear. Brian hates the idea of couples but breaks his own rules for Justin, unable to resist the pull he feels towards the young blond. He takes care of him in different ways: letting him move into his loft after Justin's kicked out of his parent's home, going after him to NYC after he runs away, advising him on school situations -- thus over and over, disproving his own verbal declarations of not wanting him around through his actions. After Justin's prom bashing, Brian is traumatized, and cannot face seeing Justin. However, he helps Justin return to normal during the second season, both physically and emotionally. To restrict Brian's promiscuity, Justin sets some rules, which Justin breaks when he takes another young man's virginity and when he starts dating Ethan. Brian is upset by Justin's departure, but does not admit it. During the third season, Brian's success as an advertising executive comes into opposition with his beliefs when he is asked to head up a conservative, anti-gay mayoral candidate's campaign. Though he is initially instrumental in the candidate's rise, he eventually, with Justin, destabilizes the campaign, using his own money to pay for ads. Because of this, Brian loses his job. However, in the fourth season, he founds his own company, Kinnetik. He battles testicular cancer, especially tough because of his narcissism. After beating cancer and completing a bike ride from Toronto to Pittsburgh, Brian reevaluates his life, deciding to take a more active role in his son's life and asking Justin to move back in. In the fifth season, Justin moves out, frustrated at Brian's inability to form a committed relationship. After a bomb goes off at Babylon, which Brian owns by this season, Brian admits his love for Justin and mends his relationship with his best friend, Michael. Brian proposes to Justin but later tells Justin that he should go to New York to pursue a promising art career. They spend one last night, knowing that even that they are separating for the time being, they still love each other. Brian shows Justin that he has kept the wedding rings as a symbol of hope that they will have the chance to be together again. The series ends with Michael and Brian dancing in the ruins of Babylon which transforms to show it restored as they dance with all their friends, except Justin. Despite Brian's seemingly uncaring and immoral nature, he is shown as loving his friends and will often make great sacrifices for them, even though he won't admit it. He plans a wedding for Lindsay and Melanie after theirs falls apart, and gives up his parental rights to Gus, so that Melanie and Lindsay will reunite in the first season. He pushes Michael away, so that he will go back to his boyfriend, he also helps Justin recover after a bashing at his senior prom, which Brian attended to please Justin. He gives up his job and money to beat the anti-gay, candidate for mayor, Jim Stockwell , and is willing to give up his loft and nightclub to be with Justin in the final episodes. Sexually irresistible, beautifully turned out, and highly successful, Brian has nonetheless been an extremely controversial character in the gay and lesbian community. Some people feel that he represents the community poorly, embodying a promiscuity and an inability to grow up that are negative stereotypes among the larger community. Others regard Brian as the most moral character on the show, and one of the most morally uncompromising characters on television.
Justin TaylorIn the pilot episode, Brian meets Justin, a virgin, outside the gay club Babylon, and takes him home to have sex with him. Justin is responsible for naming Gus, Brian and Lindsay's biological son. After their encounter, Justin falls in love with Brian and eventually gets Brian to have sex with him again, breaking Brian's own rule of not having sex with the same person more than once. This causes Brian's best friend Michael to become jealous and act hostile towards Justin, since he is also in love with Brian. During the first season, Justin's parents struggle to come to terms with his homosexuality, his father kicking him out of the house. He would remain estranged from his father for the rest of the series. While his mother Jennifer takes a little time to understand her son, after a few months she becomes supportive of Justin and becomes involved in PFLAG. He confides in his best friend Daphne. Late in Season 1, she asks him to be the boy to take her virginity, since he is experienced. He agrees, and she falls in love with him the same way Justin fell in love with Brian. However, Justin shoots down her advances, and although it led to an altercation, they went back to being friends. Justin tries a number of things to get Brian to love him back, including competing (and winning) the "King of Babylon" contest, stealing one of Brian's tricks, and dancing with guys Brian is interested in, and asking Brian to the prom, among other things. Despite initially turning Justin down, Brian shows up at Justin's prom and dances with him, kissing him in front of everybody. Justin described it as "the best night of [his] life." Justin is accepted to Dartmouth College but opts to go to the Pittsburgh Institute of Fine Arts to pursue his dreams. After his prom, he is bashed by a fellow student, Chris Hobbs, resulting in a month-long coma and limited use of his hand, restricting his ability to draw. Thanks to a computer Brian gets, Justin continues his arts degree at PIFA and with Brian's friend Michael Novotny, creates a gay superhero comic called Rage, with stories often based on their own lives. He experiences financial trouble when his father refuses to pay for his tuition. He resorts to becoming a go-go dancer at Babylon, despite Brian's repeated offers to help him out financially. Justin's new job takes its toll on him, the night shift causing him to lack energy during the daytime. After a disastrous experience at a party he was forced to accompany his boss to, where a number of men tried to rape him, he finally quits his job and accepts Brian's financial assistance. Justin starts a relationship with Ethan Gold, a fellow student and talented violinist, when he feels Brian isn't giving him the love and affection he wants. After Ethan cheats on him with a fan, Justin takes Daphne's advice and tries to win Brian back by getting a placement at Brian's advertisement agency. After a few tense weeks, Justin finally manages to seduce Brian once more in his office late one night. This sparks them to reconcile and continue their relationship. On more than one occasion, Justin has saved Brian from legal problems. The first time, he blackmailed Kip into dropping the sexual harassment lawsuit against Vanguard and Brian. The second time, while he is still with Ethan, he makes Brian's nephew tell the truth about whether or not he had molested him. Justin drops out of college after a disagreement with the head of the internship program after it is discovered that he has been having sexual relations with his boss, Brian, and sabotaging Chief Jim Stockwell's ad campaign. During the fifth and final season, Brian and Justin's relationship becomes more unstable. Justin works on a movie version of "Rage" but the project is canceled. When Justin returns from Los Angeles and moves back in with Brian, he expects them to settle down, which Brian still doesn't want. He leaves Brian, but after a bomb explosion at Babylon, Brian admits his love for Justin, asking him to marry him. They plan to get married, but as the date draws closer, Justin realizes that Brian is trying to become someone he isn't, just to make Justin happy. Similarly, Brian realizes that Justin is giving up his career as an artist to settle down with him. Brian tells him that he should go to New York City to pursue his art career. They agree to call off the wedding, saying "we don't need a piece of paper to prove our love for each other." Before leaving, Brian and Justin spend one final night together. Brian tells Justin that he's kept the rings, and Justin reassures Brian that they will continue to see each other frequently.
