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.
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.
