Gay characters on OLTL, Y&R, ATWT ... we smell a trend.
Our favorite beat cop, Oliver Fish, tried to suppress his true feelings by sleeping with Stacy and romancing Layla. But he finally came out, to his friends, family, even at work.

I REMEMBER WHEN THEY GOT MAD CAUSE THEY HAD A COUPLE DATING WHO NOT OF THE SAME RACE. PEOPLE GOT SO UP SET I TOLD MY SISTER WHO CARES IT'S JUST A SOAP OPERA. BESIDES IT'S GOING NOW WHERE I LIVE I SEE COUPLES WHO ARE BLACK AND WHITE THAT ARE MARRIED OR LIVING TOGETHER. I SAY GOOD FOR THEM I'VE GOT FAMILY MEMEBERS WHO'S FROM GERMANY AND FRANCE THAT ARE MIXED. THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH GAY STORY LINES THAT RIGHT I GOT FAMILY MEMEBERS WHO ARE GAY NOW CHOCK ON THAT HONEY CHILD.
I think OLTL to should be commended for doing this story. Except for the Dorian part, I think it has all been written well and handled realistically. I was just thinking the other day that it's like the OLTL of old---there is diversity. Not only in regards to sexual orientation, but also races and religions. Well done, imo.
I can't believe people are so against gay storylines...
I love it, I think it's WAAAYYY more interesting than anything else going on right now.
I don't see anything wrong with them having kyle and fish do a bedroom scene...
It would have been better than fish and lalya together..
I'm just kinda outta words, not a lot to say after reading all the homophobic comments...
I agree with rrj009. I am interested in seeing were the oltl writers are going to go with this gay storyline. -I have been really enjoying the show this passed two weeks.
layla needs to give it up already she is so naive is this really eveangilines sister, that best friend was a detective, the same girl that put the bug in adriana's ear about Rex being in love with Gigi get with it , the witers think we are idiots as for the gay and teen sex it 's a soap opera that suppose to be based on real characters, real characters are everyday people which are teens having sex and doing drugs, gays and straights and it about time they did something about the men being on the down low like fish, because it is out there and people just like the viewers do not want to see it layla asked him yet she stiill rather believe he wants her then recognize the truth. Gigi and rex do not deserve a happy ending did adriana get one , what goes around comes around Gigi and liz need to become friends since there is no Marcy and Emily call themselves help yourself to wrecking other women's relationship and act innocent afterward she deserves everything stacy is giving her keep up the good work , i only feel sorry for shane not Rex, Stacy, or gigi. By the way people Skychuler is too good for her.
I don't know why they can't just leave sex out of storylines PERIOD!! We don't need to see people having sex in order to enjoy a good show. I was shocked when they allowed Starr to end up having sex with Cole and get pregnant, she was the one pure thing about the show and they ruined it and now they want to throw gay relationships in our faces as well. They may be a part of society, but they don't have to put it in the storyline, just like teenage sex. Just because something happens in life, it doesn't mean we want to watch it on our shows. I would like, for once in my life, to enjoy a good soap that didn't have to throw all of this sexual immorality into it. It's ridiculous! They are moving to another building, they might as well just keep moving right on out of the tube. I watched the very first show and back then they didn't have all of these relationships, shoving them down our throats. So why now???? I hate it and so does my God.
Why dont you just watch reruns of peyton Place!!!
TrishaAnn1957 said "all of this sexual immorality". What do you think all soaps are basically about?? All story lines include it as well as lies, secrets, and anything else they throw in to keep us watching. Are you sure you are watching the same soaps I am? It's always been this way. It's what they are.
Why they feel the need to it gay or straight I don't know. Why can't it just be about people who are attracted to eachother same sex or otherwise? Thats life. You can't choose who you love. That is the way "life" intended it.
You said "I hate it and so does my God" God doesn't hate.
I think it is great that OLTL has a gay storyline with two masculine men (not that there is anything wrong with an effeminate gay person). Gays are a part of our society, just like straights, whites, blacks, latinos, asians, interracial relationships, lesbians, transsexuals, etc., are a part of our society, and there are good and bad in every group, so don't think your 'group identity' in life makes you any better or worse than any other group. And to those persons who say gays are ok but they don't want them to flaunt their affection: Straights have been flaunting it for years, i.e. kissing in public, holding hands, hugging, etc.), and any other adult group, including gays, should have that same right without being harrassed. Get use to it, Openly Gay people are here to stay! And you probably have some gays in your family and daily life and don't even realize it. Also, for everything you do in life that you think is 'normal' or' right' , there are probably 'at least' 1000 other people who think it is abnormal or wrong. So leave judging others to GOD, and focus on getting your own life together. Stop with the Hate. Prejudice, and Discrimination period, against any group, including gays. And straiight ladies, here's a tip, usually the men who go on and on about how they hate or can't stand gays or want to do harm to gays, are usually on the DL and it is their way of trying to hide the fact that they secretly want another man. That's your que to start watching his 'eye contact' when you are with him and other men are around. One Life To Live, thank you for having the courage to have a frontburner gay storyline. I will be watching to see how you merge this important storyline into the intriguing lives of the racially diverse people in Llanview. The storylines, diverstiy, writing and acting is what makes OLTL the BEST Soap on TV!
I see nothing wrong with gay storylines on daytime. After all, they are a part of every day real life in today's society. Let's not be so closed minded and regress.
