Next week on Days of our Lives is a historic one for daytime dramas! That is when for the first time two gay male characters will tie the knot in a heartfelt and important story point for the viewing audience of the longest running scripted television show in NBC history! The first gay wedding in daytime soaps belongs to All My Children’s lesbian couple of Bianca (Eden Riegel) and Reese (Tamara Braun) back in 2009, and later in 2009 One Life to Live aired its same-sex wedding-athon episode.
Coming up on DAYS, starting on the Tuesday April 1st airshow, and airing over three consecutive episodes, the fan-favorite couple Will Horton (Guy Wilson) and Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) are set to get married in a beautiful ceremony presided by a surprise officiant.
In 2012, Will came to terms with his sexuality in powerful episodes that had audiences around the world captivated and rooting for the character to find love. The slow building romance of the beloved couple has captured the hearts and minds of viewers far and wide culminating in their engagement earlier this year. With great surprises in store and excitement building around this momentous occasion, audiences will be blown away by the powerful performances to come.
