the 100 most memorable moments in soap history
Daytime's groundbreaking first same-sex kiss was tempered in part by being played up as a gimmick, but groundbreaking it was, nonetheless. In 2000, Erica Kane's daughter Bianca (Eden Riegel) famously came out. But it took three years for her to get kissed, in a moment that AMC played up for all it was worth. (Notice the sound effects of a plane taking off as their lips meet.) You may note, though, that this moment is outranked by a same-sex kiss that actually came later, but that's because the higher-ranked kiss really meant something. Lena (Olga Sosnovska) was out of Pine Valley soon after her famous smooch.
