While a Days of Our Lives spokesperson declined to comment, Entertainment Weekly is reporting about a possible gay romance brewing in Salem, USA.
...the traditionally conservative soap is about to get a lot more contemporary: EW has learned exclusively that a gay storyline may be in the works! From what we gather, it may involve a current cast member hooking up with someone new.
I'll be interested to see where this goes. I always welcome diversity on my soaps, but they are known to drop the ball... *cough* Kyle and Oliver *cough* Bianca and Reese *cough* Luke and Reid. Ahem. When our soaps are committed to diverse storytelling, it always pulls me in. So, the question is, will this possibleDAYS romance organically integrate characters and their love story into the rest of the canvas? Or, will this "gayness" be a brief plot point, that quickly disappears like it so often does on soaps?
