Kerr Smith and Adam Kauffman reflect on the 20th anniversary of the first gay kiss on TV.



- Rewatch the scene here.
- Kerr Smith says at the time it was a big deal, and everyone was kind of afraid of the response. Joshua Jackson was present during that scene even though he wasn't supposed to be filming that day.
- Adam Kauffman didn’t realize how colossal the scene was until years later, when he met a man who got emotional while recalling his own coming-out experience.
- Kerr Smith is recurring on Riverdale: "Cut to 20 years later, and we're here on Riverdale, and you have several gay characters. It shows how far we've come. It wasn't a big deal, yet to me [back then], it was the biggest deal in the world. I am very happy about how we've all changed."
- According to GLAAD, LGBTQI+ people are 10% of all the series regulars in scripted TV.
