The 100, Gray’s Anatomy, Supergirl, HTGAWM ..: The LGBT characters that marked the year 2016!
The diversity in the series gradually comes to make a place and this year, many LGBT characters have made talk about them!
Happy New Year ! That’s it, the year 2017 is here and we wish you lots of good things and new binge-watcher series with pleasure. Before you start talking about all the new products, it offers even a small balance sheet of the television 2016 by focusing particularly LGBT characters – lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender . Then we came back there some time on LGBT characters that were missed for various reasons, today we return to those who marked the year, by their absence, or simply leaving their existence. We invite you to talk about your favorite characters in the comments since we obviously had to make a few choices.
Lexa – The 100
We think of Lexa (Alycia Debnam-Carey) in the first place since we must admit it, his death remained in the throat. As brutal and unjust, yet it was the engine of a revolution of the fans who believe that #Lexadeservedbetter – Lexa deserved better – and by extension that LGBT fans also deserve better than to see the little characters Represent them on television die one after the other. In short, either because of the controversy created after his death or with his chemistry with Clarke, Lexa has marked 2016 .
Speaking of Callie (Sara Ramirez), it is mainly from her departure from Gray’s Anatomy that we speak because the small screen loses a colorful bisexual character who assumed and breathed the joy of living. But Sara Ramirez decided otherwise and it is with sadness that we saw half of the former couple Calzona – Callie and Arizona – to New York . But we do not lose hope to see her again as a guest-star in the suite!
With his coming out a little late, his crush on Maggie and her poignant discussions with relatives, either his mother or Kara, Alex (Chyler Leigh) made a successful entry in LGBT characters in 2016 and wait to see grow further in the rest of the season 2 Supergirl .
It’s been almost three seasons that we know them and three seasons we adore them. Connor (jack falahee) and Oliver (Conrad Ricamora) continues to be a gay couples hottest small screen and break taboos by proving that love is love , no matter the kind of people who experience despite the Censors this year, particularly in Italy.
The arrival of Trevor (Elliot Fletcher) in Season 7 Shameless Us – whose criticism of our season finale is available on melty – has not only enabled Ian Gallagher (Cameron Monaghan) to find some stability but also to the series To introduce a little bit of diversity. After his “trouple” consisting of two women and a man and in addition to Ian and Mickey, two gay characters, it is a transgender character that the writers have introduced in the series. We welcome their choice to have cast a transgender actor to play it and we are glad to see it again on our small screens after the cancellation of Faking It in which Elliot Fletcher interpreted the sympathetic Noah.
Magnus (Harry Shum Jr) and Alec (Matthew Daddario) marked the year with a passionate kiss shared on Freeform to the delight of many fans and after turning around for a while. Love triumphed social norms and it is still a good screen representation that gives us wait to see more tomorrow on the American channel !
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend continues its diversity and destruction of cliches with this year’s coming out of Darryl Whitefeather (Pete Gardner) and his statement to “White Josh” (David Hull). By showing that there is no age to make her coming out and that feelings prevail over the rest, Darryl continues to give us balm to the heart, all in song and good humor.
Clarke Griffin (Eliza Taylor), the bisexual the most badass of the little one Screen, nor Cosima Niehaus (Tatiana Maslany) who still shines in Orphan Black or Tara Chambler (Alanna Masterson) still as endearing in The Walking Dead. Titus Andromedon (Titus Burgess) continues to show us that gay shots can be used wisely in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Root (Amy Acker) and Sameen Shaw (Sarah Shahi) Even in the most difficult circumstances in Person of Interest. Finally special mention also to Sophie Burset (Laverne Cox) and Poussey Washington (Samira Wiley) Orange is the New Black , or even Maura Pfefferman (Jeffrey Tambor) to represent the diversity always with great accuracy and strength . We do not forget that small screens also shape the minds and we hope to see more representation and especially more happy endings for the LGBT characters in 2017 and in the years to come! And you, what LGBT characters have you scored?
