That’s it for this edition of Gays of Our Lives.   I love to hear from readers so please share your comments on the thoughts and opinions expressed in this week’s column below.  You can also tweet me @adlangford or email me at



  1. if GH is getting rid of Lucas, do you think we can get Days to bring him over? especially if Sonny is coming back! wouldn’t that be hot? I’m moist just thinking about it!!!

  2. It was addressed for two seconds, as in Angel saying “but I thought you were – you know….” and Patrick looking like “meh, I like boobies now.” And off they go. Of course, Robbie will be sticking his oar in etc. It will be completely unlike Maria and Marcus on Corrie. Oh wait.

  3. Thanks. Has it been addressed in his relationship with Angel or is the show just ignoring it?

  4. He sure was introduced as that. Even sleeping with Robbie and breaking up his marriage to Will. Then he was non-practicing while being accused of kiddie diddling for a couple of weeks. Now this Angel crap. Again another show that is rapidly going down the toilet because of how it depicts “gay” characters – in this case, as promiscuous, lecherous, predatory and sexually vacillating.

  5. I do, yes. I think the acting has been really strong and there have been a lot of moments that come across as believable drama for the characters and their extended family, like when he lost Arthur at the hospital last week.

    I can’t see Aaron wanting a Daddy figure (I could see him seeing Ronnie as a mentor, if the show didn’t keep him so damn isolated). Robert and Lawrence would have been believable, and I do wish the show had gone there.

    I’ve also watched Emmerdale for years. The last year has been poor, but I felt like (aside from the Aaron/Robert story, which I don’t really believe will ever improve) the show had gotten somewhat better lately, with Kate Oates leaving. There’s been more focus on everyday scenes and on friendship, etc. Sorry if I ended up offending you, if you thought I was saying you only watched for “hot young man on man action.” I was only trying to say I thought it was improving, somewhat.

  6. You honestly think Ashley’s dementia is a good storyline?! Oh lord. It has been agonizing to watch since Victoria ran him over. Plus anything that involves Gaby is like back-alley dental work. And for the last two years, you don’t even know who the effing vicar is. One day it’s Harriet, the next it’s Ashley. Haven’t we suffered enough. Nope. We get to watch him dwindle away with “forgetful” moments until the actor’s contract is up. Yay.

    And I don’t need to “try some Lawrence and Ronnie” stuff. Why? So I can listen to Chrissie whine and pout in that abysmal, privileged way of hers? I do like that they included two “gay” characters of a certain mature age. But we are talking Emmerdale here; it will be dragged out, boring, insulting and moronic before too long. A more interesting storyline would have been if Aaron found his Daddy figure in the arms of Ronnie, or something. But that’s never gonna happen for so many reason.

    I wasn’t watching this show casually for the hot young man-on-man action that never happened. I have been a long-time Emmerdale viewer (not just for the gay parts) for years, and now I’m done.

  7. I think there’s some good material on Emmerdale (Ashley’s dementia), and the show has starting having longer scenes and more focus on friendship. I do think it had gotten bad for a while. I will say that in terms of stories with gay characters, Aaron and Robert have been an automatic fail for many months. You may want to try some of the Lawrence and Ronnie story that recently started. It’s OTT and rushed and strange, but it’s still something different, and the guy who plays Ronnie is surprisingly good.

  8. Yeah Ben was getting two-dimensional for a second. But he went right back into douche mode the minute Stacy started questioning Bobby’s admission. One of the worst parts of soaps from the UK is this insistence on staunch family loyalty over reason. The Dingles, the Monks, every family on Corrie, the Mitchells. They all lose their minds and become oblivious to reality, facts and logic when someone slights their kin by pointing out their crimes or their stupidity or pint-pulling skills.

  9. Officially stopped watching Emmerdale and Corrie last week. Just nothing worth it on either – not while they’re treading over and over on the same storylines. There are only so many times you can milk the same illnesses and affairs and schemes. But when you do it with such contempt for your characters and audience,it becomes a complete waste of my time and effort.

  10. “Brad and Lucas make plans to marry at the Nurses’ Ball, but first Brad has a question for Felix. Brad wouldn’t be tacky enough to ask his ex-boyfriend to be his best man at his wedding, would he?”

    Of course Felix’s is Brad’s best man! Who wouldn’t ask their ex-boyfriend slash the guy you fought with over your husband-to-be slash the guy you almost had a threesome with to stand up for you on your big day. UUUGGGHHH.

  11. I’ll forgive any shortcomings in the Iolo/Tyler story just because their scenes last week were so adorable. It was subtle and realistic, and it was cute to see Tyler as the insecure one for a change. Just as adorable were the scenes with Sam and Anita when they had a real chat about their pasts and what they are looking for. I enjoyed the juxtaposition of the 2 young people and the more mature couple both reaching the same stage in their relationships.
    If Ben keeps doing nice things like reaching out to Jay, I’m going to have to start liking him.
