I feel it is important to take a moment to recognize what happened in the United States today. The Supreme Court’s decision to make same-sex marriage legal nationwide is a huge deal, and it has been a long time coming in my humble opinion. Good for you, USA!
Here on My Fangirl Life, we’re all about being who you are. Love is love, and people should definitely be able to make their own decisions about who they marry. Today is a good day. In honour of this fabulous occasion, I’d like to share a list of my favourite same-sex couples on TV.
1) Kurt and Blaine – Glee
Glee was such a groundbreaking series for many reasons, and one of those was for the acceptance of same-sex relationships. Kurt and Blaine became a fan favourite couple on a show that made a great impact on entertainment.
2) Cameron and Mitchell – Modern Family
Mitchell and Cameron are an amazing couple, and parents. This is the best look I’ve had on TV of a same-sex couple raising a child, and I can only think that this will be a more prominent situation in entertainment moving forward.
3) Alex and Marissa – The OC
When I was a teen, I watched The OC religiously. I still re-watch it every couple years and love it every time. I remember Alex and Marissa’s relationship as being one of the first same-sex relationships between young people on television, and the fact that it happened made this issue something that I understood was important.
4) Callie and Arizona – Grey’s Anatomy
Callie and Arizona were together for ages, and they went over many hurdles just like any other relationship on the show. I only wish that they would get their happily ever after.
5) Susan and Carol – Friends
This show was popular when I was fairly young, and I remember Susan and Carol as one of my first brushes with seeing a same sex couple. It created the groundwork for understanding different relationships as I grew older!
6) Brittany and Santana – Glee
I know, I probably didn’t need to include two couples from Glee, as they’re kind of here for the same reasons, but I just couldn’t leave these fabulous ladies off of the list. They were meant for each other.
7) Piper and Alex – Orange is the New Black
Alex may be the reason Piper ended up in jail, but their relationship is still a great one in a show full of groundbreaking relationships. Rocky. But great.
I’m just so happy to see that the US is finally on board with same-sex marriage. Love really does win today.
