UNPOPULAR OPINION: LGBTQ+ COMMUNITY ON TELEVISION!!

Why the hell do we not have LGBTQ+ people on television? Everytime you turn on the TV, what do you see? You mainly see straight couples and individuals on TV. Not that I have anything against that. But, why is that? Do they think people wont be tuned in?

I personally think that a lot of people would be tuned in. I say that because their is plenty of people out here who support the LGBTQ+ Community. Let’s talk about BET for a second. When watching BET, you see a lot of straight couples and individuals on TV. Alot of people are tuned in to BET. BET is one of the largest channels on TV. If they film more LGBTQ+ people on their channel, it will be a different dynamic. You hear so many people talking about this one specific channel. So, why not promote us? It would be a very interesting thing to see. I’m sure we all would be very happy. I feel like they should film more gay actors and actresses. They should also film more gay characters especially on Disney Channel. Disney Channel is also a large channel on TV. I feel it would be more education on TV for the kiddos. They can learn alot instead of watching the same ole stuff. It would be something different and exciting to them. I just feel like alot of changes on TV should be done with the LGBTQ+ Community. It’s a lot of Talent out there, you just never know.

  1. Serials are a good way to educate. I remember this Bollywood movie called Dostana about two people falling in love with the same girl. But they pretended to be gays to stay on rent at her house. Back when it was released (I guess about a decade ago) I laughed while watching the movie because they had turned the whole thing into a comedy. (Pls don’t get offended by the laughing, I was just 14 a decade ago).

    Then about 2-3 years ago I watched an online series on YouTube whoSe name I can’t recall. It was based on 2 college friends developing feelings for each other. This one talked about lesbians and was a 6-7 episode series. The interesting to thing about it was that it’s setting was late 1990s. It showed how they got iNto a relationship and how their families separated them after they got yo know about the ‘strange’ relationship.

    Then there was this Bollywood movie titled ‘Ek Ladki ko dekha toh aisa laga’ (On seeing one girl, I felt like this).. this was a bold movie showing how a girl realised from her childhood that she had attraCtion for women. She ended up being with a woman. With the help of a friend, she enacted a play to reveal her identity as a lesbian. Initially, her family was horrified but they eventually understood. So this one had a happy ending.

    And then obviously there’s Ross’s wife ending up to be a lesbian. But then that western culture, so it didn’t really make a difference in my life.

    Writing all of this makes me realise how cinema and television makes a huge impact.

        Ek larki… is a bit dramatic too.. typical bollywood.. full of drama. But yeah you should give it a try

    ◇ The Entire Entertainment Industry is Fundamentally LGBTI+ EveryOne; so maybe this question should be levelled at The Creatives in The Closet…it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that I AM a Huge Admirer of Ellen and Other “TV” Personalities who ARE Openly Gay; when We focus on what’s wrong instead of putting it right We Promote Problems and Make Things Worse instead of Seeking Solutions and Making Things Better, n’est ce pas tout le monde 🤔 ?
