    The closest I’ve seen to an LGBT romcom is TOUCH OF PINK…it has a few flaws, but it’s cute if you like ’50s movies and Cary Grant. I also appreciate that it has a POC as the romantic hero, and Kris Holden-Ried (from LOST GIRL!) is adorable as his boyfriend…

    I too love the idea of LGBT romances becoming ‘run of the mill’ with no raised eyebrows! Maybe someday. Of course then, look what’s happening with the latest release of Beauty and the Beast!

    Thank you for the interesting post, Francis. I shall see some of the films you talk about. I must recognise I haven’t seen any of them! 😕

    Congrats and thanks for sharing about rom-coms. You’re right not too many good ones. So for my bit of 80s, how about the prime-time soap operas like Dallas and Dynasty. I’ve also seen what you said elsewhere about memoirs, in fact recently read Balls: It Takes Some to Get Some by Chris Edwards. I learned from it and want to keep learning, and I like the idea of putting that in story format, vs. memoir. So the book sounds great. –

    So agreed that there should definitely be more good shows with non-cis and gay characters without it being a thing. Make seeing them be an everyday occurrence & most people won’t even think twice about it.
