24: Murphy Brown Has a Gay Co-Worker


“Come Out, Come Out, Wherever You Are” (March 9, 1992)

Just when you think Murphy Brown’s take on a gay episode is overstuffed with heteros sharing bad information about alternative lifestyles, the last scene gives the one-off gay character some earnest, heartfelt lines. In the end, Murphy Brown did the gay character good. Queer culture impresario Matt Baume joins Glen and Drew to talk Candice Bergen, Faith Ford and gunge. (Look it up.)
