Stephen Tropiano, associate professor of television-radio
Tropiano wrote an article for the forum on television and media culture about how “gaycoms” have been accepted by American society. “Television shows, and sitcoms in particular, are often undervalued for their power to open up people’s minds and influence the way they view at the world,” he wrote. “Will & Grace and the groundbreaking gaycom that preceded it, Ellen (1994-1998), certainly changed the images of LGBT people on television. Both series ‘normalized’ gay men and lesbians by demonstrating that they live healthy and productive lives–and can be just as neurotic and outrageous as their straight counterparts.”
