Gimme a Kiss

There are a lot of reasons to be outraged in the world, so I don't expect you to add this to your list. But on Thursday, for Valentine's Day, As the World Turns aired a special fantasy episode in which different couples on the show imagined how their lives might have played out if certain things had happened. In Luke and Noah's case, they imagined what would have happened if Noah had followed his father's wishes, enlisted in the Navy, and never met Noah.

Over the course of the episode, well...

Everyone kissed but them. As the video shows, they were about to kiss in "reality," but an extra walked by.

They have not kissed, on-screen, since September 26. At this point, the show has achieved quite a feat--it has managed to make its portrayal of an extremely romantic young gay couple seem homophobic.

If that strikes you as wrong, feel free to visit the Support Luke and Noah page to find out how you can help.

In the meantime, I've written a sequel to The Photo Shoot. It's called The Dressing Room. It may be the last part of this little tale...time will tell!
