TV’s Acceptance of Gay Storylines Has Been a Long Time Coming

29 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There’s no question that television has been vital in altering perceptions on gay rights, perhaps more than with any other social issue.

Over the past 40 years, the Lgbt social and political agenda has been moving forward in our pop culture in many ways, especially on good old-fashioned broadcast television, which reaches everybody, everywhere. Back in the ’70s, I remember Archie Bunker »
