Too funny I mean if you were a new viewer you would not even know Maya was a transgender this is why these awards have become meaningless.

I still don’t get the win for this show. Once again, Maya is underutilized, so what is the win based on? Just sayings

I was thinking the same thing. Once the truth was told, her character, not to mention her whole immediate family was pushed aside so they could once again focus on what I call the “usuals and rehash the same topics over and over again

Confusing at best – unless the award is for most complete dropping of an LGBTQ character and story line. There is still a lot of story to tell here, but the subject will likely not be revisited unless Liam decides to undergo gender reassignment and pursues a lesbian triangle with Hope and Steffy…

That is hysterical. They sure do drop characters and storylines instantly and move on to triangle after triangle. I wish they would have kept Spectra’s Saul and had him as a gay character. I adored him and he would have been excellent working at Forrester since Spectra is dead-at least for now.

Days is more diverse. B&B fashion industry with all straight folks. Not to mention white

As an openly gay man, this offends me. I mean…Maya has hardly been onscreen lately. I don’t get it. Not buying it. Nope.

With Jacob Young now recurring, I think we won’t be seeing much of Maya, unless they pair her with Carter. This show needs diversity and a production team that can think beyond Brooke, Ridge, Bill, Liam, Steffy, Hope, Wyatt and Katie. They have very capable actors on the backburner. Give us a story to deserve this award.
