CBS “The Bold and the Beautiful” Spoilers have seen a lot of weddings during these theme weeks, and we have to admit it’s impressed us how many there actually are. It’s almost as impressive as the various storylines the angles they use to set up the different marriage venues. It’s pretty cool, and it shows a fun imagination at work to create a memorable event for the actors and fans.
In this case, the show took on a hot topic during the last few years. LGBTQ rights have been hotly debated the last few years, and to see a transgender character is one way of helping to show that though someone may be different in some way, they’re still just like us. No matter where we go, we see a group of people just like another group of people. It’s up to us to take the next step and respect those we view as different.
Coming to us from August 12, 205, this ongoing lesson had one of the most heartfelt and emotional moments in the show’s history, and was one that CBS “The Bold and he Beautiful” Spoilers never gets tired of watching. It focuses on Maya Avant (Karla Mosely) and Rick Forrester (Jacob Young)’s wedding, and follows a powerful scene where Maya asked her father, Julius Avant (Obba Babatundé), to leave the ceremony. He hadn’t been able to accept Maya being transgender, and she wanted only positive people there for her and Rick’s wedding.
Strength comes in numbers
It was a sad moment, but the love and support of their friends and family helped them to find their way. It wasn’t anything new as Nick (Scott Turner Schofield) had been one of Maya’s staunchest supporters, urging her to tell Rick about being transgender and other endeavors. In fact, he was the one officiating the wedding, and he took time before the ceremony to explain to those gathered that Rick and Maya had dealt with a great deal of suffering and obstructions during their relationship, but they pushed on and never gave it. Their ordeals had strengthened their commitment to each other, proving their love for each other was unquestionable.
Following other expressions of love and respect through verse readings and other means, the service was traditional as were the vows exchanged. They then added something personal, as Rick said Maya had shown him the true meaning of love and courage. Maya told him that she would love him no matter how much they’d change in the coming years, and would always be a devoted wife.
