Long running Australian soap opera Home And Away has announced today that it will introduce its first LBGTI main character!
The series has had only two gay characters in it's 30-year-long run, with them both only making brief appearances before either disappearing off of our screens or "going straight again", so this is very good news.
Home And Away resident and Australian legend Ray Meagher, who you may all recognise as Alf on the show, announced the news earlier today in a statement, saying that the writers on the TV show "do try to keep abreast with the times, so there is an interesting character coming in.”
There's no word on where, when or how this new character will be introduced, but introducing them will definitely make the show more relatable to its audience, which is great!
We're very excited to meet this new face!
