    Summary

    Although gay representation in 1970's American television was overall dire, some shows introduced gay characters who were sympathetic and nuanced. Even then, they usually were only there for one episode to teach the straight characters a lesson about tolerance. But this early TV representation was still important, so I've highlighted some favorite clips here of gay and lesbian characters speaking out in the 1970's.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Maculategiraffe's classic and highly influential slavefic series finally comes to AO3. Take due note of the warnings and tags, and be aware that the series grows in maturity as it proceeds. But the heartbreaking lovableness of its protagonists is there from the start.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    With a well-selected song, this is a perfect mixture of adventure, romance, hurt/comfort, and goofiness. The editing of clips is excellent, as is par for the course with thingswithwings's vids.
