What is HollyOaks?

I keep getting clips of gay scenes from HollyOaks.

Is it a gay soap opera?

A British soap with lots of hot gay characters. It's prime was 2007.

They had some hot cock-action scenes.

That poor pub was always blowing up. And the death toll in the village put Cabot's Cove to shame.

It is set in Cheshire in the North of England. The fact that many of the characters have London accents is an enduring mystery. An actor friend of mine worked on the show some years ago. He told me that the younger members of the cast were always having to deal with outbreaks of crabs.

It's the soap with the hottest gay character of all time - PC Kiss!!! He's somehow even more sexy when he's being a conniving gaslighting abusive and possessive jealous boyfriend!!

HO wouldn't be HO without mentioning Ste the biggest manwhore who's been with every guy in the village. AND he also had 2 kids by the time he was 17. Whore!

I didn't know the new actor who took over the role of "Ollie Morgan" is gay, IRL. MetroUK did a pride month feature that included him and his coming out story

Too bad he has the same name as a fairly well-known, gay porn star (Gabriel Clark) .. lol!

The gay men aren't getting much action right now.

I guess it's the lesbians turn for awhile .. lol!

I don't know if it's true r20 but there was a rumor claiming that something went down with Brian Kirkwood that kinda helped push Parry into leaving the show.

Had to laugh when Donna-Marie found out Juliet is lesbian, and she said something like she always imagined that if either of her kids were gay, it would be Romeo.

Haven't we all.

Summer trailer

Looks like there's going to be a romance between the non binary character and Brooke who despite dating Imran, will now come out as non binary.

by Anonymousreply 23July 20, 2021 9:59 PM

I like Ripley. .. A little bit of Brooke goes a long way, though.

I like Shaq.

I don't like Summer at all and think this thing with Sienna is a real stretch. .. Oh, and the "Simmer" squad is nutzoid.

They seem bound and determined to put John Paul, James, and Ste in the same orbit. .. Not into that. .. I'd prefer all three guys find someone new, or at least one of them find someone new, and the other two in a triangle with someone new.

And since characters seem fluid at the drop of a hat, can Shaq go bi- for James? .. lol! .. I like their chemistry. .. I notice that actor (Omar Malik) played gay "Omar" in the Leeds Playhouse production of "My Beautiful Laundrette."

Ena Sharples was in Coronation Street, r4.

by Anonymousreply 25July 20, 2021 11:45 PM

Unless someone new shows up or someone already there comes out as not being straight, the only not straight male character left is Scott r24. I do like the idea of Shaq coming out as bisexual and James dancing(LOL).

by Anonymousreply 26July 20, 2021 11:58 PM

R26 When it comes to Scott, I think they should probably just keep him single or recast Mitchell if-when the Toby reveals occurs. They could, however, show Scott on a comical disaster date every now and again.

What about Darren, Craig's brother, did he ever switch teams?

by Anonymousreply 28July 21, 2021 2:01 AM

I agree r27.

by Anonymousreply 29July 21, 2021 3:31 PM

R28 Darren's never switched teams, although some viewer were thinking he and Kyle should have taken their psych support for one another to a different level.

That probably would have confounded the seriousness of the mental health issues they were dramatizing, but I can just hear Nancy screeching at Darren, "You fucked my fiancé, and you think I should forgive you!?"

by Anonymousreply 30July 21, 2021 8:35 PM

Speaking of Craig Dean, I think it's been long enough, and they should just bite the bullet and recast the character. Burnet's never returning (which is fine by me, btw), and a recast could actually help create new drama with the other boys in the village.

Craig's not only JP's ex-, but he's supposed to be co-parenting Matthew. When last heard, Craig had been living with JP and their son as a family down in Singapore; then Craig up and ran off with his personal trainer. .. So reintroduce Craig to the village, then have the cute personal trainer soon follow. He'd be a hot twunk who'd fill the gap left by Harry, and immediately catch James' eye. Maybe Ste's too.

To answer OP question, Hollyoaks is a magical place where sexuality is fluid and at any moment a character can suddenly develop bisexuality and become involved with a member of the opposite sex. Suddenly the town seems to maybe developing a similar situation with non-binary.

It's a village of whores!

by Anonymousreply 33July 22, 2021 1:21 AM

The person who plays Brooke besides their character coming out as non binary has also come out irl as non binary.

by Anonymousreply 34July 22, 2021 10:10 PM

R34 Interesting, because I was wondering why introduce a non-binary character just to have one of their regulars suddenly go non-binary. I don’t know enough about non-binary, but is that a regular course of coming out, meeting another non-binary person and then figuring out that you are? It seems like that would be something you live and feel from very young young rather discovering later in young adulthood.

by Anonymousreply 35July 23, 2021 12:38 AM

Billy Price has been a great addition to the cast in the last few year and is a very strong actor. He and Owen Warner live together and it looks like super fit Owen has gotten Billy to start working out as he seems to be bulking up and developing some muscle.

[quote] It seems like that would be something you live and feel from very young young rather discovering later in young adulthood.

R35 The teenage character who is about to come out non-binary (Brooke) is also autistic and one of the things they've highlighted over the last three of years she's been on is that she isn't always certain or aware of social cues and/or needs things that are understood by nearly everyone else explained to her. I can't tell you that this non-binary self-realization would be real-life for someone like her, but Brooke's story related to her autism has often been about "discovery" -- and after she met the non-binary Ripley and had what that means explained to her, they've written in some *light bulb" moments for Brooke where she now recognizes something about herself that she relates to.

It was funny when Brody turned up for his wedding and Damon commented how hot he looked in his tux and that he should be the one marrying Brody.

Brody agreed, but said the honeymoon would be "messy."

I bet.

It's so obvious that Brooke and Ripley are going to get together after Brooke broke up with twink Imran following a conversation with Ripley and despite Imran saying that Brooke's gender expression didn't matter to him.

Girl I’ll be crying about Sarah Barnes in the afterlife tbh. And I’m still so furious they made Lydia a nutcase and Zoe a cheating girl bisexual bitch. We could have been so sapphically happy, but no we have to have vengeance and murder and borderline incest and violent freak accidents instead😭

I know most of the gay fans hated Sarah for her part in the McDean storyline, but I actually rather liked her and felt sorry for her. Even her lesbian turn sort of made sense—IRL I’ve known a couple of clueless lipstick femme model straight women who can’t make it work with men or objectifying themselves in the patriarchal world, and suddenly a light goes on psychologically and they discover what’s been missing.

R28/R30 the funny and interesting thing about Darren is that he’s a rare example in soap of a very camp and swishy straight fella. The joke is that he’s not gay, but he acts like the worst outdated stereotype of a gay man, i.e. incredibly bitchy and vain and always ready with a catty comment. It’s actually refreshing to see a straight man with these qualities on telly, because it’s more common IRL than people assume (I was socially teased in secondary school by a straight boy with his sort of nasty streak).

What I did like about Darren is how beneath all the banter and teasing he looked after his stepbrother Craig Dean so well, and even grew to love him. He was a better big brother to Craig than Craig’s actual biological brother, the homophobic and creepy bully Jake. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that Craig & Darren are rather alike, and that had Darren been into men then he would have been Craig’s mentor of sorts.

R37 Talia Grant, the actress playing Brooke is very well-spoken, and more high-functioning than her character. I suspect she has Asperger’s rather than classic autism.

As a female with Asperger’s myself, I think she is courageous to tackle such a role. Women like us are very often misunderstood and misapprehended.

It’s a bit of a shame that Grant has bought into gender identity politics, but unfortunately autistic women often fall into that trap.

R41, yes that's a good analysis of Darren. He alsoGabe of street trafe vibes. Giving up his hole for a few quid in a drunken fumble.
