I recently read an article by the wonderful Michael Fairview , that lit a fire soo deep within me I just had to reply .

The topic at hand is

Daytime steering away from Gays ?

I left a lengthy reply on his site

Just in case it didn’t go through

here’s by ten cents worth ..

What’s your thoughts ?

 

—–

 

It’s a very sad state when Daytime starts breaking away from such potential storylines .

#Atwt made its mark with its first gay character .

Then #Oltl , followed by #Atwt for Luke & Noah

I being Proud Gay Latino am so upset that #DaysOfOurLives obliterated our favorite Gay Couple !

It’s great seeing Paul Norita still on the air .

I won’t be surprised if he’s going to turn BiSexual again soon if only to pacify the powers that be .

I hope one day the homophobia can change but truthfully I don’t see it happening .

 

I myself being an Online FanFic Writer , Gay Author am so ready to forge ahead with stories I am able to share with loyal readers .

Often I hear , ” Wow , your stories are better than a certain daytime show ” yes its a compliment but its sad seeing our fav Soaps shy away from LGBT Romance that in itself earns the right to be historic like any straight couple .

 

I like to commend those other Authors like

Ryan Brü , Max Voss , because they too are branching out and also changing the playing fields that has long kept Gays in the dark .

 

” We are Gay , Proud , and we aren’t going anywhere ! ”

 

It’s OK to be different , God Loves us all…

    ☆*。♪。*★*。♪。*★*。♪。*☆ ---- " PartyWills Online Publications Magazine "  Presents  EXCLUSIVE " Q&A  " with  ** Nathan Varni ABC network Covering Executive for General Hospital Interviewed by  Hannah Carpenter,  Semenjuk & I Interviewed by  Willy Garza , Hannah Carpenter Susan Semenjuk Nov 9,2015 ------ Hola Amigo's ,  This weekend  Hannah Carpenter , Susan Semenjuk & I were so honored to interview  Nathan Varni , enjoy the session .. Ladies first , here we go .. ------ [ Hannah Carpenter ] ---- The big story for the past year has been Jake is Jason. Has the story went the  way you had hope it would and Why did it take a year to do the reveal? I’m really excited about the story. ----   [ Nathan Varni ]  ----   Once Shelly & Jean joined the show as our new head writers, their ability to hone in on what was working and what wasn’t working was and is important for the future of this story.  I did love Ron’s idea that since we were recasting the role, the idea of the accident and giving Jason a new face and taking away his memories was intriguing and helped us get back into telling a Jason story.  I also think it was very interesting to see Liz fall in love with “Jake” not Jason, they had a connection (not knowing their past).  I think all of that was interesting to see unfold.  Unfortunately where we misfired was dragging the story out way too long and we as a collective team are all responsible for letting it drag on too long.  But our current writers have a clear vision and journey for the story which I think has really jumped the story in the past month and even re-energized the actors on set. Shelly and Jean’s take on the upcoming story is one that I find interesting and will really push the actors to bring their “A” game to their roles.   ---- [ Hannah Carpenter ] ----- 2) With you being the Executive for 3 major shows 1 of them being a daytime soap opera. Would you consider doing theater (meaning directing plays)?? ---- [ Nathan Varni ]  ---- Believe it or not, I started my career (before moving to Los Angeles) working in community theatre in San Luis Obispo, CA.  I volunteered in high school and the day I graduated high school, they offered me multiple positions working behind the scenes for a small non-profit community theatre.  I wore many hats, from box office manager, to admin assistant, to helping out with the children’s theatre division, to lighting/sound, set construction to stage managing shows and assistant directing we all wore so many different hats at the non-profit company.  It was also a great introduction to larger than life personalities which ended up being the perfect training for working in entertainment!  As far as theatre directing, I would love to return to working in the world of theatre perhaps once my television career comes to an end.  ---- [ Hannah Carpenter ]  ----  3) I saw you are an Illini fan did you go to college there?? If not where did you go to college at?? ----- [ Nathan Varni ]  ---- Ha it’s sort of a running joke that my partner started … he would come home from trips with t-shirts from either colleges he went to or colleges his family had either attended or were employed  by. His sister worked at Univ of Illinois and so I’m sure I can be seen wearing it in many Facebook photos!  My own college education … I went to Cuesta College for a few years up in San Luis Obispo, CA and then transferred down to Cal State Northridge where I hold a BA degree in television production/media management. ----- [ Hannah Carpenter ]  ----    4) Do you like to read if so what book are you currently reading?? ----- [ Nathan Varni ]  Yes love to read but wow I have an enormous amount of reading to do on a weekly basis for work (700 pages of just GH a week) combined with outlines and scripts for Once Upon A Time and The Middle and rough cuts on all three shows.  I feel like my average work day is about 12-14 hrs and new episode outlines for GH come in over the weekends, so I have very little free time to actually read for fun.  My parents live about 3 1/2 hours north of Los Angeles, so when I visit them I try to listen to a book on tape during the car trip.  I visited a few weeks ago and was listening to Elizabeth Gilbert’s new book, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear.   ----- [ Susan Semenjuk ]  ----- Will Patrick Drake be re casted??   --- [ Nathan Varni ]  ---- There are no plans to have a new Patrick Drake but as I’m sure our audiences know we need to beef  up our GH doctor staff but that is long term and we are still in the planning stages for that as we discuss 2016 episodes. When Jean & Shelly started they said they would love to tell more hospital stories and I completely agree with their desire to do that and hoping we can build many hospital stories in 2016 and beyond. ---- [ Willy Garza ] ( PartyWill )   What got you to want to work on such a popular soap opera like  " General Hospital “ ? ---- [ Nathan Varni ]  ---- My boss (Vicki Dummer) took over ABC Daytime after Brian Fronz exited. I was already working with Vicki in Primetime Current Programming and when Vicki took over daytime, she took over the oversight of GH in addition to all the other daytime shows.  Agnes Chu was my predecessor as the point executive on GH.  When Vicki took over, Agnes joined our primetime group and in addition to GH was also stating to shadow on various prime time series.  In June of 2013, Agnes was recruited for an exciting job opportunity to work with/for Bob Iger the CEO of Disney.  When the position became vacant, Vicki knew I was a big soap opera fan and the opportunity to take over as point executive on GH fell into place rather quickly.  My first official day was June 28th, 2013.  In the fall of 2013, Lisa Hackner was brought in to oversee Daytime development and programming but because General Hospital is scripted, our President decided it would be best for Vicki to continue her oversight of General Hospital. So technically neither one of us has much of a connection to the Daytime department as Prime Time current programming has oversight of General Hospital which in turn allows me to also work on The Middle and Once Upon A Time.  It’s a bit unusual but I think we’ve made it work quite well since they made the change two years ago.  ----- [ Willy Garza ( PartyWill ) -----   2) Do you have any hobbies outside of the office ? ------ [ Nathan Varni ]  ----- I am a big tv nerd so I try to keep up on favorite shows when I have the time. Regardless of being employed by ABC some of my favorite broadcast shows are on ABC, I find myself watching ABC dramas and comedies the most.  I do love The Good Wife though on CBS and it’s one of the few shows I watch the night it airs (Sundays).  I love the work that cable networks have been doing over the past decade and also enjoy binge watching shows on Netflix and Amazon when I can find the time in between work. I also love indie movies and documentaries and try to venture out to the limited theatre scene in Los Angeles when I can.  I grew up in Morro Bay and was spoiled by having a beach right in my back yard, so I love spending time at the beach too, especially quiet beaches up north.   ----- [ Willy Garza ] ( PartyWill ) -----   3) I am enjoying what's going on these days on the show , what do you predict  for our fav characters in the future ? ----- [ Nathan Varni ]  ----- It’s hard to predict since I know what’s coming … so all I can say is I feel so fortunate to be working with such amazing and collaborative writers that Shelly Altman and Jean Pssanante are.  Their energy and passion for GH is so infectious that even though they are based in New York, everyone in the LA offices and on set can’t help but feel their amazing positive/creative vibes coming from NY.  We are so fortunate right now to have one of the hardest working crews and talented casts of any daytime seri   [ Willy Garza ] ( PartyWill ) ------ 4) Who would you like to see return ?  -----  [ Nathan Varni ]  ---- I too grew up on General Hospital so I am a big fan of not only seeing GH vets but fighting to give them relevant story.  With the baby boomer generation entering their senior years, the definition of being a senior citizen has changed and I think the opportunities to tell stories for characters over 50 or 60 years old is rich as senior citizens are redefined in 2015.  My own mother is 65 years old and routinely rides her bicycle in 100 mile races throughout the year and my dad (also 65) still surfs.  They are active, loving life and I often try to push our writers to come up with relevant stories for our vets.  I take honoring the history of GH very seriously and hope as we get into 2016 this will become very evident in our storytelling for all characters both for vets and new characters.  ---- [ Willy Garza ] ( PartyWill ) ----- 5) If you could do another side project on Primetime , which show(s) would they be ?  -------- [ Nathan Varni ]  ---- A side project on primetime?  I love almost all genres of television so when show assignments come out each year, I’m pretty excited to work on any project.  I do enjoy working around television writers and creators who have a clear vision for their show and ideas that could fill up years and years of television episodes.  When I work around television writers with incredible passion and endless ideas, those who are really making their shows special, that in turn fires me and fuels my inner passion to really stand behind the series and support the vision of the show creators.  ------   [ Willy Garza ] ( PartyWill ) ------- 6) Where have you traveled , where would you like to travel one day ----- [ Nathan Varni ]  ----- As far as travel, I have traveled quite a bit within the country … I need to actually take time off from work though and explore countries outside of the U.S. (Italy, UK, Japan) are all on my list for visiting one day … perhaps when my days of covering a daily show are in the past, I’ll have some extra time for vacations!  ------- * Special Thanks  Nathan , Hannah , Susan *  ---- Dedicated to  All GH Fans , Online Subscribers ! ----- Happy Holidays !!!

Will Patrick Drake be re casted?? 

[ Nathan Varni ]

There are no plans to have a new Patrick Drake but as I’m sure our audiences know we need to beef
up our GH doctor staff but that is long term and we are still in the planning stages for that as we discuss 2016 episodes. When Jean & Shelly started they said they would love to tell more hospital stories and
I completely agree with their desire to do that and hoping we can build many hospital stories in 2016 and beyond.

What got you to want to work on such a popular soap opera like
” General Hospital “ ?

Regardless of being employed by ABC some of my favorite broadcast shows are on ABC, I find myself watching ABC dramas and comedies the most.  I do love The Good Wife though on CBS and it’s one of the few shows I watch the night it airs (Sundays).  I love the work that cable networks have been doing over the past decade and also enjoy binge watching shows on Netflix and Amazon when I can find the time in between work. I also love indie movies and documentaries and try to venture out to the limited theatre scene in Los Angeles when I can.  I grew up in Morro Bay and was spoiled by having a beach right in my back yard, so I love spending time at the beach too, especially quiet beaches up north.

It’s hard to predict since I know what’s coming … so all I can say is I feel so fortunate to be working with such amazing and collaborative writers that Shelly Altman and Jean Pssanante are.  Their energy and passion for GH is so infectious that even though they are based in New York, everyone in the LA offices and on set can’t help but feel their amazing positive/creative vibes coming from NY.  We are so fortunate right now to have one of the hardest working crews and talented casts of any daytime seri

4) Who would you like to see return ?

I too grew up on General Hospital so I am a big fan of not only seeing GH vets but fighting to give them relevant story.  With the baby boomer generation entering their senior years, the definition of being a senior citizen has changed and I think the opportunities to tell stories for characters over 50 or 60 years old is rich as senior citizens are redefined in 2015.  My own mother is 65 years old and routinely rides her bicycle in 100 mile races throughout the year and my dad (also 65) still surfs.  They are active, loving life and I often try to push our writers to come up with relevant stories for our vets.  I take honoring the history of GH very seriously and hope as we get into 2016 this will become very evident in our storytelling for all characters both for vets and new characters.

5) If you could do another side project on Primetime , which show(s) would they be ?

A side project on primetime?  I love almost all genres of television so when show assignments come out each year, I’m pretty excited to work on any project.  I do enjoy working around television writers and creators who have a clear vision for their show and ideas that could fill up years and years of television episodes.  When I work around television writers with incredible passion and endless ideas, those who are really making their shows special, that in turn fires me and fuels my inner passion to really stand behind the series and support the vision of the show creators.

As far as travel, I have traveled quite a bit within the country … I need to actually take time off from work though and explore countries outside of the U.S. (Italy, UK, Japan) are all on my list for visiting one day … perhaps when my days of covering a daily show are in the past, I’ll have some extra time for vacations!
