If only this were a Joanna Johnson -type of situation, where she came out in the midst of the show announcing Karen Spencer to come out as gay.

Given Kevin's history, I

Given Kevin's history, I think making him bisexual would probably make more sense and would create far more storyline opportunities.

I always wanted to see the character have a thing with Rafe, the hot Latino lawyer Adam seduced a couple of years ago. Kevin's legal troubles would be an organic way of bringing the two of them together.

I am thrilled for Greg and think it's wonderful.

I do also think it would be time for Kevin to come out. I'm sorry but whenever Kevin has called Chloe "Baby" it's never washed for me if you know what I mean and I know all of you do.

Thank you SoapA. Daytime

Thank you SoapA. Daytime needs to reflect society, which is filled with bisexuals. Make Kevin a bisexual, and have a Kevin/Rafe/Chloe s/l. Throw Heather (Eden Riegel) in there just for fun, too.

I could see Gloria being a real PFlag type of mom and supporting her "Angel".
Judith Chapman would be divine doing that. Beer

Josh and Jill are you listening?

kudos to Greg for being a man

kudos to Greg for being a man and stepping up to the plate! I hope others are watching and will follow suit.
For a Y&R story, it might be fun if the Baldwin brothers both fought over the same man. Maybe Michael, after his breakup with Lauren, meets a guy who helps him over his break up? And what if said guy also wakes up some hidden desires in Kevin as well? Michael has always been a character with loose borders and few parameters, so I could easily see him as bi. It is just up to now he has expressed the straight side on air. Who knows what he did in college? Or in jail.....

@everyone: Will Christian J.

@everyone: Will Christian J. Lablanc be next? But Marknsprmo got it out there lol. I'm part of PFlag myself for my cousin. He's also member of the Log-Cabin Republicans. So it makes for an interesting conversation.

David, Christian is twenty

David, Christian is twenty years older than Greg. A whole different generation. He's probably not as comfortable sharing his truth with the public; and I know lots of other people might disagree, but IMO that's his right.

I am much closer to

I am much closer to Christian's age and no it isn't that comfortable to be out. But it is important. Not only for himself but for millions of others.
Heck Tuc finally did it, why not Christian?

I don't know why it is

I don't know why it is anyone's business if someone chooses to come out. As long as they don't get involved into the sexuality of others, then let them be.

Please, no to Kevin being gay. He would totally bring Rafe down. However, I could totally see Gloria's response to Kevin being gay, LOL.

I don't know why people

I don't know why people always think that the one gay character which there has ever been, should be brought back. Please, nobody is 100 % straight or gay, there is an experimental bisexual in nearly everyone. It's just about the other participant.

IMO Rafe was a ill-conceived character from the start. If the point was just to bring some diversity to the cast, they failed. That is not reason enough, if they wanted a gay character, they should have brought someone on contract and someone who was a little bit more exciting. Not a villain, but grey, and a bit rogue.

I just want Gloria to join

I just want Gloria to join PFlag and march in the parades. I don't even care really if Kevin and or his big bro actually come out. She is the perfect gay mama. Of course Michael's wife and best friend are both perfect gay man's friend material. Hell Lauren looks like a drag queen most of the time (a very well done one but still). And Phyllis and Michael's relationship is that of besties. How many straight good looking men and women are actually best friends in soaps? The only one example I can really think of were Cass and Felicia on Another World.
