    In Portraying Gay Lives, TV is Coming of Age


    Major Crimes on TNT. It is a spinoff from a show called The Closer. In just one series, we have the issues of homeless gay youth, battered gay youth, and prostitution, all handled in a way that was realistic.


    On NBC, a summer-replacement show called The Night Shift takes place in a hospital in the southwest and focuses on veteran Army doctors. What's unusual about this show is that one of the doctors is in the closet and, in one of the last episodes, his boyfriend, an active-duty soldier, is rushed into the hospital and is in danger of having his leg amputated.

    I would like to see once where the gay man isn't some kinda stereotype but than again that's all people think we are some kinda of stereotype. I understand that it is helping move along so people accept us so they find us less threatening, but i don't know....

    Just seems fake like everyone else on tv...

    Its funny when even so called "reality TV" seems more fake than the real stuff...
