“AFTER FOREVER” MAKES HISTORY
BECOMING THE FIRST LGBT-FOCUSED DRAMA SERIES TO WIN 6 EMMY AWARDS
Gay characters, couples and storylines have become commonplace in the movies, stage, and on television. However, rarely are these characters older than 30-something. One could argue that this merely reflects our ageist society’s fixation on the young, the hot, the attractive. But because popular culture often teaches us by example how to negotiate life, it also leaves us without a model for the realities of life after 30. Gay or straight, we all age, and eventually we all wind up having to deal with the loss of a spouse, a partner, a dear friend, a loved one.
AFTER FOREVER is a funny, heartbreaking, heartwarming, and ultimately empowering online series that will resonate with audiences of all ages and sexual identities as it explores relationships, healing and new beginnings.
