As The World Turns Historic Kiss!#1

SPOILERISH...








ET reports on As the World Turns' upcoming first gay male teen kiss on daytime, supposedly happening this Friday, 17 August.

Very cool behind the scenes video of the moment, if only because they loop the scene over and over again!

Nice to see daytime taking those important steps once again.

I agree Robb...that would have been way hotter!!! Or even better, Luke and Casey (but Casey is in jail). This Noah guy will do, though.

FINALLY! I hope it is a real kiss and not a "mistake." Currently Noah is going out with Maddie.

Yes, I am an actual ATWT junkie. re: As The World Turns Historic Kiss!
So, that was the Drowsy Chaperone. Oh, I love it so much. I know it's not a perfect show...but it does what a musical is supposed to do. It takes you to another world, and it gives you a little tune to carry with you in your head for when you're feeling blue. Ya know?

Now... will they keep kissing and doing sex scenes like the straight couples on 'Soaps' or is this just a publicity stunt?

I guess you'll have to stay tuned to find out. At least that's what Jake Silbermann (Noah) says...

I tune into the show every now and then and have been watching a lot of it this summer.

Tomorrow is a huge day, with the kiss and also One Life to Live's 10,000th episode. Nathan Fillion is back!

Thank goodness for DVR.

I don't watch these shows, so help me out here.

LONGTIME COMPANION came out in 1990, and now 17 YEARS LATER we're seeing what they fictionalized in a scene on a soap back then?

Progress isn't progressive enough for me.

DG,
I agree with you, but unfortunately, even now, fans are stating that they will never watch the show again if Luke becomes seriously involved with Noah. ATWT made one of the sons of a lead couple gay. They can either shy away from the storyline or try to write a realistic and meaningful storyline. Luke pretty much was on the back burner for a good year, I would say. This is a long running soap, so I suppose producers feel as if they are taking a huge chance with their "older" fan base. We will just have to see how it plays out.
So, that was the Drowsy Chaperone. Oh, I love it so much. I know it's not a perfect show...but it does what a musical is supposed to do. It takes you to another world, and it gives you a little tune to carry with you in your head for when you're feeling blue. Ya know?

Unfortunately, it is necessary. LONGTIME COMPANION was way ahead of its time. Right or wrong, many people in this country get their ideas about life from watching TV. Not everyone lives in an area where diversity is celebrated or even tolerated. If you check out the CBS boards, you will see an awful lot of hate speech/language regarding this storyline. It's actually pretty scary that people still think like that, and, yes, it's 2007. So I agree that "progress isn't progressive enough" but the state of affairs in this country is what it is. Hopefully, ATWT, CBS and the producer, Procter & Gamble, will stick to their guns and let this story play out so that it can show all viewers that love is love irrespective of gender and/or orientation...

I have been an ATWT fanatic since I was a child. This old, long-time fan says, "Bring it on". Luke is sweet and deserves happiness.

If kissing a boy is all it takes to get you to hell, then I'll be seeing most of the third grade class from Sts. Phillip and James when I get there.

i can remember around the time that LONGTIME COMPANION came out, there was a PR buzz over a lesbian kiss (and maybe relationship) on some soap...all i can recall is that one of the actresses was the star of the sitcom ANGIE and a supporting character in SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER...Donna Pescow, maybe?

Caroline,

I think they repeat it at the beginning of Monday's show...they said that they had to shoot it twice, once for Friday and once for MOnday...

I'm sure it'll be on a certain video-clip site too, if not already...

I believe that ATWT episodes are posted on the web on the CBS website.
So, that was the Drowsy Chaperone. Oh, I love it so much. I know it's not a perfect show...but it does what a musical is supposed to do. It takes you to another world, and it gives you a little tune to carry with you in your head for when you're feeling blue. Ya know?

I'm still smarting over the days when Billy Douglas finally got a boyfriend on One Life to Live, who then disappeared a month or so later, never to be heard from again. I don't watch ATWT, but I hope they don't suffer the same fate.
I killed the boss, you don't think they're gonna fire me over a thing like that!!!!

ATWT had a gay male character back in 1989 or so. The coming-out stuff was handled well and was pretty realistic, but of course he had no romance on the show, and had an unseen boyfriend who lived out of town.
