I know it makes me seem old every time I mention it, but I'm still amazed sometimes at how far popular culture has gone in its depiction of LGBT people and issues. I can remember when anything remotely queer was a reason to tune into some TV drama or another and how big of a deal it was when Ellen came out or Will & Grace launched. A sitcom about gay people? No way!
Now TV shows are chock-full of our tribe. You can't flip the channels without finding one or another of us on the tube - competing on a reality show, making us laugh, or reading the news. Real World DC's openly bisexual Mike got a job with HRC while the show was filming and in this segment, he talks with him mom about LGBT issues. Her response still makes me choke up a bit as I remember how my own mom took the news and her complete and utter lack of interest in our fight for justice that continues till this day.
