Fans of “One Life to Live’s” gay couple Kyle Lewis (Brett Claywell) and Oliver Fish (Scott Evans), collectively known as “Kish,” have planned a Times Square rally to protest their favorite characters being written off of the soap.
The fans, who call themselves the “Kish Army,” will gather outside ABC’s “Good Morning America” studios starting at 6:30 a.m. ET on Friday, March 26. The Save Kish website, which is helping to spread awareness about the event, accuses ABC of “giving in to bigots.”
Protesters are encouraged to make signs and wear t-shirts that support the actors or characters, and organizers are expected to appear in the “Good Morning America” studio audience as well. Fans plan to not only support “Kish,” but also gay representation in the media in general, and gay story lines on daytime television.
Never underestimate the power of TV fans in large numbers!
