A queer "Degrassi" primer

Last season on Degrassi, there was a two-part episode called “My Body Is a Cage,” featuring new character Adam Torres. Although he was introduced as an average guy, just like all the others, he is actually a remarkable character: Adam is the first scripted transgender teen character in television history.

Jordon Todosey on 'Degrassi' and Playing a Transgender Character

Degrassi,' in its various incarnations, has never been afraid to address an issue, no matter how taboo or culturally sensitive. In the past, they've featured abortion, sexual molestation, rampant drug use and even HIV/AIDS before it was "acceptable" to do so.

Now, Degrassi High has a transgender student, Adam, who is struggling with his first real relationship. In classic 'Degrassi' fashion, Adam is not singled out for his identity (though he was at first by peers), and the show treats him like just another teenager. Kudos to the show, but also to young actress Jordan Todosey, who plays the role with incredible accuracy and compassion.

Degrassi is a long-running Canadian teen drama that has never shied away from controversial topics and storylines. I had never watched the show before Adam (played by female-bodied actor Jordan Todosey) came along, but, because I have an all-consuming compulsion to follow almost any television storyline I hear about that features a young LGBTQ character, I decided to keep an eye on his storyline as it developed.

I rarely leave a response, however i did some searching and wound up here "Degrassi".

And I do have a couple of questions for you

or does it look as if like some of the comments come across as if
they are written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing on other online sites,
I'd like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you list of all of your social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
