    Quote Jim and Terrie: With the newly adult Kyle Abbott joining the story line soon is there a chance he will be the first major gay character on Y and R.

    With ratings stagnant it may be a good way to bring in a new fan base and boost ratings.

    I know they had Rafe and the phony affair with Adam. Maybe it's time to move Genoa City into 2012 with a real gay relationship

    That would make things more interesting. Hey, maybe Kyle can be the first guy into bestiality or zoophillia!

    As much as I would be fine with a storyline like that, I know that there would be tons of people who would up and change the channel if a gay love scene were to come on Y&R.

    The Y&R demographics are much older than say the Glee demographics. That probably has a lot to do with the fact the we never saw Rafe and Adam get it on.

    What storylines? There weren't any legitimate storylines surrounding their homosexuality except Adam using Rafe to hide his gas lighting scheme and Phillip using his homosexuality to excuse him faking his death.

    I would be curious to see the reaction if TPTB wrote a real storyline for a gay couple.


    It would certainly be at least interesting to see how they would write character reactions. I think that in 2012 it's time that Y and R tackled the subject many of us have evolved into accepting. Unfortunately they would make it like the Alcoholic characters that flip flop back and forth between drinking and sobriety. One month they would be gay - the next month not gay.

    You're probably right in that the writers wouldn't do the story justice, but I still think that gay people should be represented on Y&R. Like you said, it's 2012! Gay people are part of the world around us and there is nothing wrong with it. Why shouldn't they also be apart of the microcosm that is GC?

    I'm straight, and I'm ready for it. Although I think that he should be a bi, and that way they can still pair him with a woman when they need to.

    I agree with this post. When they did the 'Nuke' story on ATWT it was part of the downfall of this once great soap. Luke and Noah were young and gay and thankfully they didn't show too much that would have been embarrassing to some of us older viewers. We know times have changed but is it really for the better to embrace all these unnatural relationships? And to bring it into the living rooms of America with summer vacations coming soon?

    Unnatural? Wow! People are who they are, what is unnatural about that?

    Considering there are no other major gay characters on Y&R I dont see them heading in that direction anytime soon. I think his focus is going to be on Nikki, for killing his mother and Jack for cuddling up to her. I also think he may have a grudge for Victor as well. He trashed Diane just as much if not more than Jack. I think he is going to be interesting, maybe more like Adam's return.
