AMC Takes GLAAD Award – Again!
AMC has been touted as a pioneer in daytime television for pushing the envelope. The show broke ground when Bianca Kane, Erica's daughter, came out about her sexuality. It was a first for daytime television. The show also aired the first female-on-female romantic kiss. Recently, the writers created the character of Zarf/Zoe, a rock star, who came out of the closet as a woman living in a man's body. The storyline is very popular among fans who are rooting for Zoe as she begins the transition from physically male to physically female.
