Glee Promotes Social Acceptance?

Filed under : Celebrity News

Hollywood’s biggest A-list stars showed up in all their finest clothes on the red carpet for the 63rd Annual Emmy Awards Sunday night in Los Angeles. When Radar Online caught up with gorgeously beautiful Jayma Mays on the red carpet, she was surprised to hear the impact the interviewer thought Glee had made on the American public but celebrating she said she was proud to be a part of it.

Sunday was TV’s biggest night of the year with the Primetime Emmy Awards. And understandably, Glee got a lot of attention. It has started a whole social movement toward greater acceptance of diversity, the interviewer told Mays, before asking her what she thought. Perhaps, she suggested, Glee even paved the way for Chaz Bono to become the first ever transgender contestant on Dancing With The Stars.

Do you think that is true? Has Glee had such a major impact? Actress Jayma Mays (32) who plays Emma Pillsbury in the hit TV show is not so sure, although she is proud of all the attention that Glee gets. She calls the increase in social acceptance a “wonderful by product.” She is not sure if the program makers set out with the intention at all.

“I feel not at all responsible,” she said with modesty.

But, given the radical conservative outcry about Chaz Bono appearing on Dancing With The Stars, has America changed that much in terms of accepting diversity? Has Glee made an impact on that at all or is it just a fun show to watch?
