BWW Interview: Martha Plimpton on Season 2 of THE REAL O'NEALS and the Show's Affect on the Parents of LGBT Youth

BWW Interview: Martha Plimpton on Season 2 of THE REAL O'NEALS and the Show's Affect on the Parents of LGBT Youth | LGBT Movies, Theatre, FIlm & Music | Scoop.it

For Martha Plimpton going to work on The Real O'Neals is her day job - but for the LGBT youth and their parents all over the world, it's more than just entertainment.

Matt Skallerud's insight:

In an era post-Glee which brought gender and sexual identity to the forefront of teen minds each week, The Real O'Neals is unique as it's one of the only shows which airs on a major network during primetime where the protagonist is a teenage boy who happens to be gay. The show is also one of the few that explores, in depth, the relationship between a gay youth and his family. In this week's episode, Kenny hosts a gay Halloween during which his mother, Eileen, sees him kiss a boy for the first time.
