With passionate and entertaining interviews from the people who lived through it and more jaw dropping archive footage, get ready to reflect and rejoice the passing of a landmark era.

I was a huge fan of Jake West and Marc Morris’ first documentary on the Video Nasties scandal of the early 80s and it opened my eyes to a period in time I was actually too young to really remember – at the time of

Dario Argento’s later forays into the lurid world of the giallo is being released on DVD by Arrow Video on 2nd May under the title of Neo Giallo Collection.

AfterElton.com’s Top 50 Gay Characters of All Time!

We asked you which gay or bisexual TV characters you think are the best, and you told us – with tens of thousands of votes cast.

Now we have the results.

But first, a few interesting statistics.

We have quite a few familiar faces – characters who made our last poll of the best gay and bisexual characters two and a half years ago – and a few missing ones, namely Vince D’Angelo (from Will & Grace), George Huang (from Law & Order: Svu), and Waylon Smithers (from The Simpsons), all of whom didn’t even make the top 50 this time around.

Meanwhile, we also have many new faces – from shows that have debuted since our last poll.

Every single character except two comes from a show that ran in the 00s (although some shows, like Will & Grace, did debut in the late 90s). The exceptions? Jodie Dallas, played by Billy Crystal, on Soap
