Luke and Noah, America’s favorite gay soap couple at ATWT, face discrimination from a homophobic potential landlord. After Elton.com did a recent feature on the subject. Recent news articles have shown that in certain areas, especially in the wake of proposition 8, hate crimes and discrimination against LGBT people are on the rise. Thank goodness ATWT is foward thinking enough to address issues like this one. We must not forget that there is still a lot of work to do to eliminate hate.

  1. Good for you for bringing the Luke and Noah storyline to your reader’s attention. It is a very powerful subject matter for the soaps. We’ve seen so few gay couples adequately portrayed on the soaps and I think ATWT is doing a great job with Luke and Noah. I’m very excited the writers are taking it a layer deeper than just coming out to families. By showing these two taking on a cause, they are opening the eyes of many of my fans who read my blog daily and the fans of ATWT to know gays, to support gays isn’t scary. It’s life.
