This past Saturday, Shay Mitchell, Ian Harding and Ashley Benson of Pretty Little Liars presented the award for the Outstanding Daily Drama category at the 23rd annual GLAAD Media Awards in San Francisco. Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith who portray Will Horton and Sonny Kiriakis, the two openly gay characters on Days of Our Lives accepted the award on behalf of the NBC soap.
On accepting the award, Chandler Massey said, “Hopefully sometime soon playing a gay character on a soap opera will be kind of a non-event. Well maybe not like a complete non-event but it will be as big of a deal as, I don’t know, faking your own death, or getting possessed by the devil, or finding out you’re a robot, or something like that.”
