Hallmark Channel Confirms First-Ever Lesbian Romance and Wedding

The decision has the homophobes in an uproar

Known for its steady supply of unchallenging and wholesome made-for-TV films, the channel has long been criticised for its lack of LGBT+ representation, but  recently promised to make diversity including queer storylines a “top priority.”

Upcoming film Wedding Every Weekend, starring Kimberley Sustad and Paul Campbell, will begin to deliver on the commitment in a small way, featuring a lesbian wedding amid a wider heterosexual love story.

The 2020 Queer Emmy Nominations

“The nominees for the 72nd annual Emmy Awards were just announced this morning”, reported Pride.

After a record season of LGBTQ+ inclusion in television, many of the key categories included at least one or two queer (and adjacent) nominations! Considering how abysmal queer rep in mainstream media used to be in decades past, we couldn’t be happier to be TV fans now!!
