Description Edit

In this short clip of the Amos and Andy show we see the Kingfish, Andy, Amos and Calhoon dealing with being gay (and "fighting" that fact). Long before Seinfeld tackled the issue of being Gay (not that there's anything wrong with it), we see that the issue of being gay was 1st addressed in this classic (albeit controversial) television series from the 1950s. Pioneering in 1st addressing this issue in a time when even married couples on television slept in twin beds this was a bold step. They deal with this not directly, but by implication. Shocking by today's standards? No. Shocking by 1950's standards? I would say - absolutely. This was the only episode where the issue was even implied.
