    Provide examples of original content GAY programming on PBS.

    PBS is not the BBC. The BBC doesn't provide a liberal only point of view.

    Whose going to delete the program from youtube: Liberal Google.

    BBC is often reprimanded by the right wing in the UK just like the nut jobs here citing PBS for being too liberal.
    Without publicly supported broadcasting Gay characters are diminished to drag queens or twinks that advertising based TV could sell.
    Check out London Spy also a BBC series. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4108134/
    The torrent is available I don't know if on you tube.

    In US was shown last Sunday and will appear again in August I believe. Available on PBS with Apple TV or Roku. US version is shown as a single piece which is fine since they connect so well. Production values are top notch and casting is brilliant. Stands watching several times for subtleties which may be missed in the first viewing. Still get teary eyed thinking about Michael and Thomas. I joined the Army just before my 18th birthday. Basic and AIT and a few months at Fort Sill, OK before my transfer to Germany. There I met Rob and we hit it off and we’re doing things together off duty. He introduced me to rock climbing, hiking. Rob was 23 and drafted after graduating college and straight with plenty of stories to make that plain. In the strange way the universe works, one night we were out and driving back to post he pulled over off the road and put his hand on my arm and said he wanted me...physically. I told him I could be there for him. We drove back to base, next day I never saw him. Following day he found me and asked to go out after duty. We went to dinner, we talked, and talked, and this time when he pulled off the road we embraced and kissed. He had fallen in love with me. We spent two wonderful years in Europe traveling on leave, lots of cheap hotels from Sorrento to Inverness, hiking and climbing, spending nights in the wild looking at the stars and planning the “Happy Ever After” we would enjoy after the service. Rob was discharged a few months before me and found our first apartment in Denver. I soon joined him to start “The Rest Of Our Lives Together.” Didn’t last very long...once he was faced with the real world at that time (1965). Like Michael in Man In An Orange Shirt the love he felt could not overcome fear of the world around us. Everything was fine in each other’s arms but not with the world. The first part of Man In An Orange Shirt very much brings out this conflict of humans and social constructs. The second part continues with the difficulties of connection and commitment. Really thought Man In An Orange Shirt was wonderful.

    Why would a talented collectible gay artist smitten by A Love That Dare Not Speak Its Name choose to interpret and portray his hunky lover so weak-chinned and bushy-browed?

    And...

    Why is inheriting nice real estate always the literary and cinematic panacea for all life's problems? The only thing that surprised me was that it wasn't waterfront.
