TVB沒有彩虹

九五至尊

《九五至尊》(2003)應該是TVB劇集中有最多同性戀故事安排的一部 (以我二十年看電視的回憶),先有司徒旭明(康華演)愛上岑日爱(吳美珩演)最後被拒絕,雖然這段關係沒有進展,最後有岑日孝(鄧浩光演)和Kenneth(蘇志威演)這對戀人成功得到家人的認同。只是很少很少的兩段感情,在(無線)電視上卻是很難得很難得。

前後的劇集,即使有同性戀角色,不是假扮同性戀便是戀愛失敗或以異性戀作出路,數都數得晒 (again,只以本人記憶和wikipedia找來資料舉例):

《妙手仁心》(1998) – 江滿月(蘇永康演)原是同性戀,之後喜歡女人
《十萬噸情緣》(2003) – 丁家嘉(滕麗名演)扮lesbian,其實鍾意田偉晨(張家輝演)
《情迷黑森林》(2005) – 陳鍵鋒演一攣的角色暗戀直的高根(馬德鐘演),無可能發展
《通天幹探》(2007) – 莊文希(鄭嘉穎演)和關迪安(敖嘉年演)曾是戀人,文希殺死迪安,後來與黃晶瑩(黎姿演)一起
《野蠻奶奶大戰戈師奶》(2007) – CC(郭政鴻演)有齊gay stereotype的特徵,被誤作是gay,CoCo(滕麗名演)發現他曾與女人結婚後才確認自己有機會
《Click入黃金屋》(2008) – Michelle(陳美詩演)喜歡方心美(何傲兒演),後者因對方親嘴而立即到廁所漱口
《有營煮婦》(2009) – 直的Ryan(洪天明演)被誤會是gay/bi並被德Sir(鍾景輝演)認為很「唔乾淨」(有性病一類)

另,由於個人偏好編劇周旭明,而且《珠光寶氣》(2008)描繪較深,游日東(黃德斌演)對高長勝(林保怡演)那沒有結果的愛是可以接受的,但真的希望電視節目能正面表達真正的同性戀情,請不要以描寫現實和大眾為藉口,相信現實中同/雙性戀也不為少數,而且一定不是總得不到愛

要一兩個角色已如此困難,LGBT主題節目恐怕難以實現。電視台可以說是(一些)觀眾接受不了,但他們的接受能力,不又是你們訓練出來的嗎? 這可不僅是LGBT的題目,而是本地對性別/性取向觀念一個很嚴重的問題。

    Thank you for this post. You’ve hit the nail on the head of so many issues I’ve had with TVB and its blatant homophobia. TVB dramas are as bad as the American South in the 1950’s with regards to homophobia, racism, and sexism. The fact that this is the ONLY free television people in HK get to watch is absolutely appalling. TV is such a great medium to reach out to the public, and what do we get? This bullshit. Gays are always for jokes. Glorification of rape. Let’s not even touch on the ridiculous, illogical storylines and the shoddy production values. While the rest of the world is moving forward, TVB is actually moving BACKWARDS. It’s embarrassing, really, and even more saddening that there are a lot of overseas Chinese (2nd or 3rd generation) who consider it quality TV.

    I would lose count of how many homophobic jokes/mistreatment of LGBT characters if I actually bothered to count them, but POSITIVE treatment of LGBT characters are few and far between so I remember one of them well. There was this stupid show from 2002? 2001? About psychology. Cherie Kong and Yiu Ying Ying turned out to be a lesbian couple. They ended up together in some of the overseas versions, but in the versions for Malaysia and Singapore (more conservative countries), they broke up and decided to “stay friends." Better than nothing, I guess. I don’t remember the name of that series. I think the English title was “Placebo Love."

    While I’m on a rant, I also want to express my appreciation for how you call TVB out on its sexism and male chauvinism in its dramas. I did some reviews on Tumblr a few months ago, mostly about the Sam/Holiday relationship in Triumph in the Skies II, and I made a long comment about how creepy I thought Jayden became when he actively stalked Holiday, tried to force her to take him back, and came between her and Sam after she said “No" a million times. I tagged it as “rape culture" but the responses I got were mostly “boys will be boys!" and “he’s just fighting for her!" and, not surprisingly, “but chilam is soooooooooooo cute!" Totally missing the point.

    The new show starting at 9:30 (replacing the insipid show about lawyers) looks like another abomination. I look forward to your thoughts on it.
