This week’s question was: What television show featured the first lesbian kiss on primetime network television?

This week’s answer is: L.A. Law. The show aired between 1986-1994 on NBC and won several Emmy awards. The episode that featured the kiss premiered in 1991. In the episode, CJ Lamb (Amanda Donohoe) helps vulnerable lawyer Abby Perkins (Michele Greene) and they end up kissing. The kiss has been described as the beginning of the craze where tv shows would have a so-called “lesbian kiss episode.” And while the actors on the show said it was essentially a publicity stunt (which turned out to be a successful one), it made LGBTQ+ history and brought with it more queer visibility.

✨ Congratulations to Carol for getting it right! ✨
