Now the course is up and running I’ll be posting more regularly! In the last workshop we had an interesting discussion at one point about gay characters in television and film, so it struck me as timely that the Pink News carried a story relating to this subject over the weekend. Eastenders (which you’ll have to forgive me I gave up watching some years ago) included a scene where two male characters kissed in last Tuesday’s episode. This has been controversial in the 80s and 90s for the soap but what surprised me was that the BBC had 145 complaints, some complaining that the kiss was shown before the watershed.
