WATCH: Degrassi Offers Gender-Bending Romeo And Juliet


Debuting in the 1980s and then relaunching at the start of this century, the beloved Canadian teen drama Degrassi has been dealing with LGBT subject matter since before Will met Grace. Now in its 12th season, the show is introducing another gay storyline: Eli, the straight kid directing the school musical, decides to shake things up by offering the part of Juliet (now Jules) to out freshman Tristan. This doesn’t sit well with the macho hockey team or with class Christian, Becky.

Hmm, with the music, gay teens and all the angsty drama, we’re definitely getting a Glee vibe.
