Soaps.com recently announced that General Hospital has been recognized for its “accurate, fair and inclusive representation of the gay�community�” by receiving a nomination for a GLAAD award at the March 26 ceremony in New York City. When Lucas Jones came out in 2006 to his parents, Bobbie and Tony Jones, there were some mixed reactions and ultimately, unconditional love and acceptance.
Soaps.com was fortunate enough speak with one of the key players in this acclaimed storyline � Jackie Zeman who plays Bobbie Spencer Jones. In a conversation with Soaps.com GH Editor Julie Clark Robinson, Jackie said, “When the scenes between Lucas and Bobbie were airing, so many people told me that they were touched by the reality of Bobbie’s reaction to Lucas’ coming out. Quite a few men told me that their mothers reacted the same way. Ben (Hogestyn, currently a cast member on Bold and the Beautiful ) was excellent in the role.”
