It seems like America is ready to embrace gays in authentic storytelling more than previously believed. Chandler Massey took home his second Daytime Emmy for his portrayal of a gay teen on the daytime soap drama Days Of Our Lives. Here’s more:
From suds to studs! Cutie Chandler Massey just won his second consecutive Emmy for playing gay teen Will Horton on “Days of Our Lives,” who, like every soap character (especially the gay ones) has had his fair share of drama.
Though if all this soap talk has got you in the mood for a shower, then you may wanna check out this sizzling fantasy scene that made lots of gay fans of “Days of Our Lives” VERY happy.
What isn’t making fans happy is that sadly, Massey has announced that once his “Days” contract is up in December he’s going to leave the show to finish up his college degree.
Hopefully he’ll get plenty more screen time before then!
The decades long running soap opera also took the biggest award home over the weekend for best daytime drama. No doubt from all the buzz Massey’s storyline caused viewers to tune in to see what the fuss was all about and stuck around because the story felt real and engaging. Maybe it will finally get Hollywood to pay attention and start telling LGBT stories with authenticity and depth as they would give to any other character. It’s time.
