supports HTML5 videoLGBTQ+ Love Island fans are holding out hope for more queer representation after Amber Beckford and Tasha Ghouri shared a kiss during the first episode of series 8.
After all, it is Pride month.It was a jam-packed instalment on Monday night, what with footballer Michael Owen’s daughter Gemma Owen trying hard not to reveal her famous dad to the other contestants while Luca Bish shared his favourite sex positions.Cut to the last half of the ITV2 show and the singletons played a flirty game of dares, which saw Amber plant a kiss on Tasha.It all kicked off when Amber, 24, was instructed to deliver her best chat-up line to the girl she fancied the most.Before she could make her move, however, Luca seemingly forgot that other sexualities beyond hetero exist and tried to shut the whole thing down.‘You can’t do that!’ he quipped.‘Why can’t I?’ Amber replied, before adding: ‘I’ve got a good one.
Tash, fancy giving us a tash?’She then beckoned Tasha, 23, over and the pair kissed.While many viewers were happy with the tiniest bit of queer representation (although some did point out that it could be seen as fetishization should the women just be kissing for men’s attention), many cried out for more.‘Love Island do not tease bisexual representation like that… it is pride month.
GIVE IT TO US PROPERLY,’ one viewer demanded.Where’s the LGBTQ representation they promised us? Is that it? Just that? LOL #loveislandLove island said this is the closest youâll get to lgbt+ inclusivitylove island do not tease bisexual representation like that… it is pride month.
