Albert Square’s first gay bar will open soon on EastEnders, a move meant to help the BBC show reflect London’s diversity more accurately.


The show’s new boss Kate Oates, who recently revamped ITV’s Coronation Street and was keen to point out that a gay kiss should not be considered “shocking television,” wants to add more LGBT+ characters, too. .............

if they wanted to be more relevant where are all the stabbings and the islamic fanatics. all the, muslim characters are nice gentle people not hate fuelled jihadi's. I hope when Tamwar comes back he is mentally ill sorry I mean an islamic fundamentalist with a suicide vest
Even when they did have a stabbing the gang doing the stabbing was white. this is just more of the typical BBC agenda.

Most Muslims are decent characters, the vast majority infact, however, if you're going to define folk by the desires of extremists then perhaps you're projecting.
they are, but then there are the stabby, shooty, bomby, car crashing types that abound as well.

Gay people represent around 2% of the UK population https://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/oct/04/one-in-50-uk-lesbian-gay-bisexual

there are about 50 main and supporting cast members not including extras that would suggest a realistic figure of 1 gay character would be about right if they are taking the UK as a whole although the figure is a bit higher for london.

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-lgbt-survey-summary-report/national-lgbt-survey-summary-report

around 20% of those who responded to that government survey lived in london.

I am now waiting to see which of the kids on the show ends up being transgender. hopefully that little oik Dennis will his bollox cut off.

2% - when looking at the Whole Country from LE to JOG
I suspect the percentage is a lot higher when looking just at London

If there are 50 actors / characters , with 20% of the Population of London being gay then around 10 of the characters should be gay

I don't see anything gay about being homosexual, some homosexuals are incredibly militant and violent, I often wonder if there are other underlying issues at work with these types, as we've already witnessed some folk struggling with their own sexual identity might deny their homosexuality, and others might say that they're homosexual despite the fact that they're not, a fashion trend, a cry for attention.

Homosexuality is an aspect of nature but that's all it is, it's nothing to write home to mum about.
.....or perhaps, some people might say that they're homosexual despite the fact that they are not --
due to the fact that they are in reality Asexual , and that it is a lot more difficult to ' Come Out ' as Asexual, than it is Homosexual.

Sounds like overkill 

Wasting a shit load of money building an entire gay bar for 10 people, doesn't sound like it's going to be very good.

Does anyone still watch that crap? Watch that for a week and you'll be standing on the tracks waiting for the 3:15 from Paddington to stop the pain.

50 actors,2% =1 not 10, in fact it equals 1/5th of an actor

according to this greater london is 2.7%,
https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/culturalidentity/sexuality/bulletins/sexualidentityuk/2016 so about 1 1/2 gay characters.
