 Bridgerton Series On Netflix Accused of  “Queerbaiting”

Tony and I just finished watching the Netflix series, Bridgerton, and we both enjoyed it. It started out to be a little slow, but when it finally picked up we started to enjoy it. To be totally honest, this queerbaiting thing did not occur to us until I read it just now. However, I didn’t see the trailer so maybe that’s why I didn’t think about it. The trailer seems to be sparking controversy. 

Netflix’s Bridgerton has been accused of “queerbaiting” after prominently teasing gay sex scenes in its trailer but largely avoiding queer storytelling in the show itself.

Here’s more. I can say this for certain, though. After writing and publishing over 150 gay romances I kept seeing places in the series where a gay story would have worked out very well. But I’m not shocked at all they didn’t do this. It’s usually how it goes with these straight things. 



“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”
