As ever, One Life to Live's Dorian Lord has the pulse of the nation, and that's nowhere more evident than her current political push for gay rights. Is she motivated more by ambition and self-interest (read: beating Viki) than pure passion for civil rights? Of course! This is Dorian Lord we're talking about! But even with her sights set solely on herself, Dorian manages to capture the hot-button issues of the day.
The bottom line, as Dorian well knows, is that gay storylines are so hot right now. Not only Dorian's campaign staff, but Fish and Kyle's star-crossed romance, Luke and Noah (and now Mason) on As The World Turns, Phillip Chancellor on The Young and the Restless ... the soaps really seem to be integrating gay storylines more than ever before. But these aren't the first gay storylines on daytime.
