True Blood has a new gay
Now that Glee is over for the summer, I have had to turn my television attention to my other TV love, True Blood. And oh, even after such a long absence, it does not disappoint.
We were teased a week or so ago that one True Blood character that had so far been heterosexual would be involved in a very gay romance. They said it would be a character we wouldn’t expect.
And that may or may not be true, because this particular character tripped my gaydar from the very first episode of Season 1.
So, the show that could happily cage-fight Glee for the gayest show on television has introduced another queer character. Happy? You betcha. I’d be happier if the girlfriend had turned out to be petite and blonde and a not-very-good Sookie replacement, but that’s the not-so-secret Tara and Sookie shipper that I am speaking.
And it appears, although Tara’s using a different name while she’s all loved-up in New Orleans, she has kept in touch with her cousin Lafayette and he knows all about her relationship.
Rutina Wesley, who plays Tara, says she was surprised at first, but thinks it all makes sense.
After I thought about it, I was like I can see that. She’s got some new skin so to speak and she’s living life to its fullest and I think that’s a beautiful thing honestly to see a person go through that sort of change. Without putting any labels to it, she sort of fallen in love and that’s OK, you know. I just think that’s amazing.
