Reality television has taken over our lives for the last two decades with no ending in sight.
What started out as a new genre of TV has emerged into something much different as there were many years where the most watched shows weren’t script-based.
Along the way we have seen many of our LGBTQ brethren compete on these programs with plenty of them coming out victorious in the end. It’s another testament to our community in terms of not only our visibility that continues to grow but the incredible talents that we have as well.
