Longest Running Soap Opera Shows LGBT Support

BTL Staff

ENGLAND – Members of the longest running soap opera, Coronation Street, a British soap opera about the working class residents of the self titled street, have come out in support of the LGBT community for the four day celebration of Manchester Pride.

The video released shows cast and crew dancing in excitement and joy to the song "I'm Alive (Life Sounds Like)" by Michael Franti and Spearhead. It features important sets including the show's iconic street corner as well as production offices and department areas.

A statement read "Our cast and crew support Manchester Pride every year and this year we're feeling the love so we made a little film about it. Enjoy and please share so we can spread the smiles."

"Love is Love No Matter Who You Love," reads a statement at the end of the video.

Posted as the first comment to the video read "Totally put off that you support gays. Swapping to Eastenders now."

The show got its start in 1960 and wasn't initially a critical success. But popularity quickly picked up and a year after its beginning the show reached No. 1 in the television ratings and remained there for the rest of the year. Even after 50 years of watching the characters on Coronation Street, audiences still cannot get enough.
