Gays on TV, Gays in Nashville

Kudos to TV’s ‘Nashville’ for having two men kiss on-screen, in a fairly realistic situation, in a fairly realistic way. That takes cojones in a show based around country music, an industry that loves to take cheap shots on liberal sacred cows. I was pretty skeptical, too, after their biracial relationship consisted of a ‘black’ lady with mostly cream, not much coffee, in her DD cups. Now the homosexual relationship is not exactly a romp through the bath houses, or a parade through the Castro district of San Francisco, but it is full of subtlety and nuance. No, I’m not gay; I’m just a fairly reliable member of a dying club–liberalism (cue God’s wrath in a thunderbolt from above)…
