being gay should no longer be kept a secret

I actually thought the show was courageous having a leading male character’s wife leave him for another woman. That was at the beginning of the show’s run and highly unusual — there weren’t many gay characters or story lines on network TV at the time. Everything is relative.

As the show moved on, they had a lot of jokes about Joey fantasizing about female couples and Jen Aniston kissed Winona Ryder but it was cliched and seemed gratuitous.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
