Fascinating and heart warming. Mexico is a mass of contradictions when it comes to LGBTQ issues, but the younger generation certainly seem to be coming along!

Fred Shirley? Time to break out the Spanish!

Brian, are you familiar with the telenovela from Barcelona, ‘Cor de la Ciudad?’ It also featured a teenage gay couple and was very popular, although it’s been a few years now.

Also, given that it was produced in Catalan rather than Spanish, it didn’t go as big as it might have otherwise.

I was pretty startled by it, frankly. The gay teen couple were given scenes that would never have been passed muster in popular American television.
