TLC’s upcoming one-hour special “My Husband’s Not Gay” has caused an uproar before it has even aired.
The special, which spotlights a group of married Mormon men who are attracted to other men but don’t identify as gay — has caused outrage from organizations like GLAAD who find the themes of the show to be dangerous.
“This show is downright irresponsible,” said GLAAD President Sarah Kate Ellis in a statement. “No one can change who they love, and, more importantly, no one should have to.”
The cable network has responded to the criticism surrounding the special saying that it follows TLC’s tradition of telling fascinating and true life stories.
“TLC has long shared compelling stories about real people and different ways of life, without judgment,” the network said in a statement. “The individuals featured in this one-hour special reveal the decisions they have made, and speak only for themselves.”
