Gay shower scene on ‘Days’
NBC’s “Days of Our Lives,” which debuted in 1965 and is one of daytime’s longest-running soaps, continues pushing the envelope. Last week it ran a brief but smoldering gay shower scene between Will Horton (Chandler Massey) and Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith).
Sparks have been burning for months between the two. In an episode that aired Nov. 14, they had sex. Both characters are grandchildren of two of the show’s main families (though neither is a Horton — the family around which the show was originally centered).
This week’s scene, though just a dream sequence, is thought to be a first for a daytime soap. Massey won a Daytime Emmy for playing Will last year. The two actors together, neither of whom have said much about their own sexual orientation, also won a GLAAD Award for their work.

I glad the article was wrote and hope it gives Days & Wilson more PR but I wish they would have read what they wrote.They refer to Will Horton in the article then it goes on to say "Both characters are grandchildren of two of the show’s main families (though neither is a Horton — the family around which the show was originally centered)".Wilson is part of three main familes.Will is a Horton & a Brady and Sonny is a Kiriakis.
I'm thrilled the couple & show gets PR, but please do some proof-reading! Naming Will as a Horton, and then say he's not a Horton.... oh dear
