I’m a little bit intrigued by this. Joss has mentioned previously in interviews that he’s been wanting to do a project or a story with a gay male lead.
However I’ve also got some concerns.
I do hope this story doesn’t utilize the classic homophobic trope to qualify how gay men are honorary women as we’ve seen in countless other stories.
I’ve also got concerns that Jane Espenson is involved with this story given how she broke my heart with that homophobic series, Husbands.
From what I read in the article, the story seems to be well-planned and the the preview panels look promising. I’m going to reserve judgment until I’ve read the entire story arc.
But being a proud Whedonite and a MSM, suffice it to say, I’ll be watching. Obviously. 😉
