Also, during the 1970s, Sonny and Cher had a gender-bending sketch on their TV show called "Mr. & Ms." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sonny_%26_Cher_Comedy_Hour#Recurring_routines Cher was a business executive, and Sonny was a house-husband.
I can remember seeing Lance Loud on the Public Television reality show "An American Family." I thought that my father would figure out that I was gay because I was so interested in Lance. (Fortunately, he only figured out that I was interested in the show.)
I remember these TV shows today because I was absolutely magnetically drawn to these shows. I would not miss seeing "All that Glitters" even though my parents did not want me to watch it. My father told me the show was "dirty" and "weird."
I saw myself in the men on "All That Glitters" and the house-husband on "Mr. & Ms." These shows were the only times I can remember seeing television characters I could identify with. On every other show on TV, men were macho, strong, and aggressive.
