Scott Evans (Fish), Brett Claywell (Kyle), Nicholas Rodriguez (Nick) and One Life to Live’s head writer, Ron Carlivati, were named “Men of the Year” by AfterElton.com’s Visability Awards!  The foursomes win was a no-brainer for 2009 as their storyline showcase daytime on television how a coming out and gay love story can be effectively portrayed and  sustained.  Here is an excerpt from AfterElton.com on their choice for Llanview’s Men of 2009!

“If you’ve been watching One Life to Live’s remarkable gay love triangle as it’s played out all year on this long-running ABC soap, you know we absolutely made the right choice. Sure, it’s a soap, but it’s also some of the best, most daring writing and acting on television, soap opera or not. Without a doubt, last year’s groundbreaking gay teen storyline on As the World Turns opened the door for this storyline, but One Life to Live has since gone places that that other, notoriously tentative soap never dreamed.

Every day, we’re drawn deeper into the complicated and passionate love that Officer Fish shares with his old college flame Kyle Lewis – to the dismay of Kyle’s politically active ex, Nick Chavez. The show has been both politically pointed, with all the positive characters arguing in favor of same-sex marriage, and passionately sexual, with Kyle and Fish (or “Kish”) getting at least as intimate as every other good-looking character on a daytime drama.

And it when it comes to visibility, it matters to us that three of the four men we’ve named – Evans, Rodriguez, and Carlivati – are openly gay, and that the fourth, Claywell, has been so supportive of the show and its attitudes.”

Congrats from On-Air On-Soaps!
