Very awesome.

My friend, Joe, came out to me yesterday.

I wasn't really surprised because he's kinda flamboyant, but it was still really sweet.

Now I actually have another gay friend! Yes!

I'm pretty sure I'm the only one he's told so far which is kinda cool.

He's a really cool dude and I'm happy we're good enough friends for him to come out.

Right now, he's at christian camp (not having lots of fun there lol) but he comes back the 1st.

When he comes back we're going to watch all the Degrassi's he's missed while he was gone.

We add our own commentary and laugh at how ridiculous it is, but at the same time we both love the show. lol.

Anyone else love Degrassi?

Woot!

Awww...that's awesome news! It's always good to have someone to talk to and relate.

I've been trying to remember to check out the new season of Degrassi online. At least Riley and Adam's episodes. I keep forgetting, though. I used to love Degrassi, but since the majority of old cast moved on, it's really gone downhill to me. I don't like any of the new cast. Except Riley, he's kinda okay. And I kinda liked Jane...she had my queer sense tingling. Now she's gone too or so I've been told.

How's this season been so far?

This season has been decent...

the Riley episode was pretty good and I've heard rumors that a trans character is on the cast so that's good news. :)

It's all the same Degrassi, over exaggerated drama and fake pregnancy. Lol.

I watched Riley's episodes on the weekend

And I agree. They were pretty good. And, yep, I heard about the trans character, Adam. I think someone said his episode was going to be on Monday. I'll be watching that online this weekend. I just wish they'd add a queer girl to the show now. Haha. Is it asking for to much? I really think we got a raw deal with Palex.

Agreed.

Palex was an epic fail.

Especially when their "relationship" lasted all of one episode.

I had a trans boi sighting! Almost shouted out of happiness. It was totally awesome. :D

It might be a little too much to ask for. Lol. Having trans, gay, and lesbian characters might be too much for some audiences to handle, sadly. Although, it wouldn't me that much different from real life. haha

Especially after Marco!

After I finally watched their episodes, it sucked! Then when they got back together later on, and the whole Alex stripping thing was stuuuupid. Then they break up again. Blah. blah. blah.

Haha, I'm definitely going to have to check out Adam's parts this weekend. Hopefully it's a positive impact on the kiddies that watch that show, like Marco was, likely.

It is, in a way, a lot. But I'd really like to see them put effort into a real lesbian character and have her have a good longish (as long as any other Degrassi characters, anyways) relationship with another girl. If I have to wait for one, I will...I'd just like them to revisit the queer girl territory again, someday. lol.

hehe.
degrasssiii (:
i used to love it - when Marco and Ellie were on.
but now that Adam's on, i might start watching again.
how many episodes has he been on so far? cus i don't really wanna watch all of the episodes w/ anya-sav/hollyj-declan drama to get to Adam's.

& congrats about your friend :P
the same thing happened to me last year, and now my Joey and i have become this platonic, biracial gay couple (basically).

So far...

Adam has only been in the opening credits when they show all the characters and play that annoying theme song of theirs.

I'm also sick of anya/sav and hollyj/declan crap. It's so boring. They have 30 episodes to tell all the stories of the characters and it might be a while. lol
