Link: Saving Hope writers sign LGBTQ fan pledge

From Bridget Liszewski of The TV Junkies:

Saving Hope writers sign LGBTQ fan pledge
“Some friends and I got together to discuss the controversy surrounding Lexa’s death on The 100, and the pile up of queer female TV character deaths that followed close after. Michelle Mama who’s a writer, producer, director, as well as a queer activist, introduced me and Sonia Hosko (Saving Hope producer) to Gina Tass who’s a behavioural therapist who works a lot with youth. Gina was paying very close attention to what young fans were saying online, and was aware that some of them were upset and self-harming.” Continue reading.

  1. Saving Hope was classy, you created Erica’s role as Dr. Reid with this generation of young woman in mind.
    Smart, confident (on the outside ), values, courageous, a fighter, professional and sexy…
    Her loyalty, determination to save Michael , Dr. Harris when no one else agreed was well received.
    It’s sad he was in a coma and his memory returned almost immediately. Yet Dr. Reid lost her memory of the relationship you created with Dr. Harris but her memory as a doctor was not effected. Everyone knows that is not possible.
    You cheapened this show that was extraordinary to ordinary, just like every daytime soap or evening soap.
    Seriously…Michael “Dr.Harris” & Dawn…a baby?
    Erica “Dr. Reid” & Joel?
