    Stonewall fans spend their days watching Emerdale, Corry and East Enders – well, I never took them for intellectuals.

  2. hang on there, Stonewall are wasting good monies and time on a load of crap like this , when pubs are still banning gay groups and the pope on his way. Far more pressing matters than this shit. Cant we get a better charity to support us than stonewall

  3. Coronation Street came last with 13 per cent of the vote.

    Because in Corrie, by and large, sexuality is just incidental to the storylines and not an essential part of the story.

  4. Soaps are very important in shaping public attitudes.The Emmerdale storyline of Aaron Livesey has been simply superb because it has been totally life-like.Danny Miller especially supported by Dominic Brunt has been able to create a totally believable character whom those dealing with young men in this type of sexuality crisis ,I am sure, must see as genuine.
    To an older gay man like me is has been rivetting viewing especially as my life experience with my late partner was more akin to David Laws’.

  5. MIllions of people watcxh soaps toblerone. Isn’t it a good idea to be encouraging them to depict gay lives properly?
