    This is exciting news! The EastSiders team has worked so hard to make a fantastic high quality show. It’s great that’s being recognized and more people will be exposed to it. Van, Kit, John, Constance, and Matt are all such brilliant actors. I think people who haven’t seen the show are going to fall in love with it!

    There’s this soap opera abt gays. Then there’s hbo’s comedy soap abt gays w/ openly gay actor jonathan groff as the lead char. These tv shows are abt gays w/ the lead chars being white of course. Yet there are no tv shows abt Latino americans and abt Asian americans from hollywood. Latino american and Asian american actors need more leading roles. Yet hollywood continues to alienate racial minorities who are a large portion of the american population. While the buying potential of racial minorities is more than 1.1 trillion dollars.

    There’s money to be made from racial minorities IF hollywood was primarily abt making money. Racial minority actors don’t get cast as leading chars on tv shows abt Latino americans and Asian americans bec there are no tv shows abt these groups from hollywood. Tons of showrunners have claimed that there’s a lack of racial diversity from tolerant hollywood bec it’s the audience that’s racist. Would hollywood be pandering to an audience that’s homophobic? Of course it would not.
