In what could be a monumental mess, One Life to Live is nominated tonight for a GLAAD Media Award which is being presented in ceremonies in New York.  One Life’s head writer, Ron Carlivati and Brett Claywell (Kyle) are slated to appear. The series is up against other same-sex storylines from GL, AMC, and ATWT in The Outstanding Drama Series category. It would appear that Kish, who has been the gay-media darling over the last several months would be the top contender.

Yesterday in TV Guide Canada’s Suds Report, Nelson Branco mentioned he had spoken to GLAAD President, Jarret Barrios who stated, “The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) today advocated for continuation of the storyline of characters Kyle and Fish on One Life and spoke out on the importance of bringing fair and accurate media images of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people to Americans. When news reports broke yesterday, GLAAD spoke to ABC Daytime to voice concerns over the cancellation and advocate that the storyline continue. We remain disappointed that ABC Daytime has chosen to stop sharing this powerful story with viewers of One Life. GLAAD will continue to advocate that in the near future, producers and writers at ABC Daytime incorporate gay and transgender characters in their programming.”  In the same piece, Branco shared his conspiracy theories as to why the rug was pulled out from underneath the audience and Kish. Very interesting.

So who do you think should take home the prize tonight for most accurately portraying gays on the soaps?  Comment here and let us know!

I’d still be going for Guiding Light..besides featuring Natalia and Olivia, they had one of their long time characters, Doris, come out as a closeted Lesbian..and were fun enough to pick up on the gay vibes between Cyrus and Remy and were good naturedly fooling around with those.. Maybe it’s not about who portrayed LGBT lifestyles the best..right now it seems to be more of a “How well did you manage to do in spite of your network policy?” So each network should get allotted scores, which then should be added onto the gay positive storylines.Like racing horses are sometimes… Read more »

I hated GL’s gay storyline with Olivia. After all the men Olivia has had, I found the whole idea of making her a lesbian ridiculous. I loved the Kish stoyline. They are the most beautiful and sincere couple on a soap—–gay or otherwise.
