Head writer defends character's introduction, 'appalled' at the rush to judgement

General Hospital, the long-running daytime soap opera on ABC, introduced a new gay character last week named Felix Dubois.

In his very first scene on Friday (7 December), Felix pulled a tube of 'red velvet lipstick' out of his pocket when a female colleague at the hospital needed to spruce up for a date with a hot doc.

It initially appeared that Felix, played by actor Marc Anthony Samuel, was an old stereotype of all gay men being effeminate.
