Greg Berlanti on LGBTQ representation

By Richard Hack

Greg Berlanti has so many firsts to his record of achievements that to mention just a few seems self-defeating.  He was the showrunner of The WB’s Dawson’s Creek when the first male-to-male kiss played itself out on the small screen.  His series Dirty Sexy Money had the first transgender character.

From 2018–19, he had 14 series running on television during the same season–an all-time record.  Yet, in this video from an American Film Institute interview, Berlanti shares that it was not until he started to reveal truths from his own life that his ability to feel completely inclusive revealed itself.
