Gay Ass News Website
I found this website and thought I would share. It’s called Gay Ass News and it’s very different from anything you’ve ever seen before.
First, it’s not a print site. This is all audio and you listen to the news stories instead of reading them. It’s different.
You can check it out, here. Unfortunately, it’s a great concept but the last post was October 2019.
The 20 Year Old Gay Kiss That Made TV History
I don’t recall this one because as a gay person I wasn’t watching TV shows like Dawson’s Creek 20 years ago. These were heteronormative TV shows that did not fall under my gay radar back then. In fact, 20 years ago Tony and I were still actively going to bars and spending most of our time with other gay people. And no other gay people I knew were watching TV shows like Dawson’s Creek either. So this is one of those straight things, done by straight people, that happened for gay people. 20 years ago gay people had no voices in the mainstream.
Now, 20 years later, the people involved with Dawson’s Creek are reflecting.
Said Smith: “Nobody had really done it before, and I was being asked to do this. I said, ‘All right, let’s make some history. Let’s change the way people think.’ … Look at any show today — comedy or drama — you’re going to have gay, lesbian and transgender characters. That’s the way it should be. That was the goal back then. In society, we’ve made that transition and I’m very proud we did that.”
