How TV Shifted Its Portrayal Of LGBTQs In The 1990s

In this mini-documentary chronicling LGBTQ representation on television, Matt Baume does an excellent job pulling together the LGBTQ shifts in the tele-landscape on 1990s sitcoms.

From Baume:

Is there any show more perfectly suited for a gay ’90s romp than Frasier? When the show the first premiered, television often treated gay characters as a source of fear. But by the time Frasier was in its final season, lots of sitcoms were having a gay old time.

Hit play for a trip down memory lane on how the portrayal of gays changed over a relatively short period and why.

No one does this better than Matt.
