Another paper has it as “the first gay kiss on TV”. The Guardian tells us the truth:
It is a common misconception that the first lesbian kiss on British television was Anna Friel’s passionate embrace on Brookside in the early 90s.
In fact, the taboo was broken two decades earlier in the BBC drama Girl, featuring Alison Steadman, and the moment is now being made available for the public to watch for the first time in four decades.
Ah, first lesbian kiss. So, when is it on then?
