The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced this Wednesday the nominees for the 40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards. Among the nominees are many LGBT-inclusive shows, which feature some of the most prominent out characters and personalities in daytime television.
The cast and crew of the GLAAD Media Awards winning NBC daily drama Days of our Lives went purple on set today and took these pictures to show their support to LGBT youth and speak out against bullying.
Hosts of Access Hollywood, E! News and CNBC, as well as the cast of Days of Our Lives and Telemundo's Al Rojo Vivo, are among those from NBCUniversal who will be going purple for #SpiritDay this Friday, 10/19.
Slightly over a year ago Sonny Kiriakis was coming out to the town of Salem and like sand through the hourglass, a lot has happened on Days of our Lives. The first out character on the soap was later joined by Will Horton who slowly came to terms with his own orientation. Since then, the two of them have been slowly drawn to one another, and today will share an on-screen kiss.
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.
