Lucas and Brad and Felix and Sonny and Will: Soap Opera Gay Storyline Updates

GH Lucas Gay Kiss

I use gay in the headline with intent – the stories are all about gay men. The good news is that two of the three men are queer people of color (Felix and Brad) and that the stories are pretty good in a soapy way. But as they unfold, it does make me pine for […]

General Hospital Dragged My Attention Away From the Gay Storyline

GH gay characters

Yinz know that I’ve spent the better part of a year waiting for the return of Lucas Jones to General Hospital and his big gay storyline. And I wasn’t terribly disappointed either with the slow build or the possibility of a gay male love triangle, especially one featuring two men of color. Slow is a […]

General Hospital Fans Have a Stake in Russian Anti-LGBTQ Violence Too

GHSochi

After yesterday’s post asking fans of “Days of Our Lives” to demand NBC speak out against the atrocities the Russian government is levying against their LGBTQ citizens, I realized that it certainly doesn’t stop with NBC soaps.ABC’s General Hospital has a frontburner story with the evolving love triangle of Brad Cooper torn between Felix DuBois […]

Soap Fans, Please Send Your #CheersToSochi to Support #WilSon, Lucas, Brad, Felix and Friends

Will and Sonny with Arianna Grace

The Olympics begin tonight on NBC and while DAYS will apparently not be bumped for coverage, there is a very important concern for viewers, especially fans of #Wilson, Will Horton and Sonny Kiriakis. As you may know, Russia has cracked down on “homosexual propaganda” under federal law and informal use of brutal and repressive tactics […]

Anticipating The reIntroduction of Lucas Jones to General Hospital

Bobbie_gets_custody_of_lucas

Since yinz seem to really like my soap opera posts, here’s another one that I’ve been ruminating on this week. Lucas Jones is coming back to General Hospital. That’s a reasonable conclusion based on the fact that’s already involved in a storyline even off the canvas and the frequent sudden mentions. Lucas is the adopted […]

LGBTQ Soap Opera Update: Spoilers, Speculation, You’ve Been Warned

Felix and Brad

Wow. General Hospital and Days of Our Lives LGBTQ stories (well, they are both really gay men’s stories) are both on fire. Here’s my quick rundown. First, DAYS and uberpopular WilSon. The bad news is that Will is being recast because they actor wants to pursue his education. Big shoes to fill? The other bad […]

Daytime Focuses on Gay Men, But Where Are The Rest Of Us?

Days of Our Lives

When last we chatted daytime television, I was sharing my thoughts on how the “Nick Fallon was raped in prison” story was playing out. Aside from the fact that there was a prison rape, it hasn’t been too bad. Nick had a come to Jesus moment about how he was treating his gay cousin and […]

Daytime Television and LGBTQ Stories: How Will General Hospital Approach It?

Retro GH logo: 75-93

UPDATE: Bobbie mentioned that Lucas lives in Seattle, hoped he’d settle down with a nice young man and scene cuts to Felix. Booyah! ****************************************************************** It is pretty clear that I am both a daytime television fan and a true believe that these shows break ground with LGBTQ characters. One of the most hotly discussed topics […]

General Hospital Adds New Gay Male Character – Felix Dubois

Marc Anthony Samuel debuts as "Felix Dubois" the newest gay character on General Hospital.

The introductory scenes of General Hospitals second LGBT character seem to have annoyed some of the gays. Hmmm. I’m pretty sure there’s simply no way a character could be introduced that would make everyone happy – OH WAIT – that’s how soap opera characters ALWAYS work when they first come on screen. So Felix Dubois […]
