That’s it for this edition of Gays of Our Lives.   Please share your comments on the thoughts and opinions expressed in this week’s column below.  See you next week!



  1. Thanks Anthony, i hope so, poor John Paul.

    Thanks for those posts, follow you since afterelton and your comments are a delight and i have always a great time reading you.

  2. Strange since the show previously heavily implied that Robert was the bottom Of course they could both be vers!

  3. I’m sure Scott and John Paul reunite. Scott is desperate and JP is needy.

  4. Serious injuries are never forever in soaps. He’ll get his sight back soon, I bet.

  5. My biggest takeaway from Emmerdale last week was the implication that Aaron is a bottom.

    Tyler gets more adorable with every passing week. Iolo has always been adorable.

  6. I really like James and John Paul together. I just think James is scared, he has never felt this way for anyone before, so instead of getting together with JP he pushes him away. His mum isn’t exactly helping, basically manipulating him into thinking he’s no good for JP and that JP is better off without him. Heck.. he probably thinks he’s doing John Paul a favor, which is why he told him about the bet. He wanted him to hate him so his mom’s predictions came true, basically saying “haha I told you so”. I believe he will come to his senses soon enough though, and see that his mom is an evil witch who is manipulating her son. I am wondering if by that point JP and Scott will be back together again though, and it will be too late for James. It would be typical.

  7. Are John Paul and Scott going to get back together? They’re a miserable couple, but they both seem so afraid of being alone that JP comes crawling back after trying to find greener pastures and Scott accepts it because he thinks no one else would be with him.

    I enjoyed the awkward timing of the accident and the break up. Watching Scott slowly realize what JP was trying to do before the car interrupted him was cruel but delicious drama. The best part was that no one had to act stupid to get it to work.
