Now live! That only took forever.

I was reminded a minute ago as I put in the title of this post how down right amazing it is that this show even exists, let alone has four full seasons so far. It seemed like a pipe dream when Crystal Chappell started talking in interviews about wanting to do her own web series. I would never have imagined that it could get this big and be this successful. It's a testament to the fans of Guiding Light who loved Otalia so much, and to the people who never even watched Guiding Light but got sucked in by something good. It's even more a testament to Ms. Chappell's talent, determination and appreciation for her fans.

I just wanted to take a minute to remember that and to appreciate it. My complaint when I was figuring out that I was gay, was that there was so little media, especially television and movies, that portrayed lesbians in a positive light and with a happy ending. I don't know if Venice is going to have a happy ending, and I sure as hell hope we don't find out soon, but I do love knowing that I don't have to worry about seeing negative, discriminatory views of gays and lesbians portrayed as the right way of thinking when I sit down to watch an episode of Venice. Love is love is love. Even when it makes me want to pull my hair out.
