This week, long-running Days Of Our Lives will feature the first same-sex wedding in the history of daytime drama.
Starting April 1, in a storyline that goes on for three consecutive episodes, Will Horton and Sonny Kiriakis (the fan-favorite couple affectionately dubbed “WilSon” by fans) will tie the knot in a ceremony presided by a surprise officiant.
In 2012, the character of Will came to terms with his sexual orientation in powerful episodes that had audiences around the world captivated and rooting for the character to find love. A romance and the culminating engagement earlier this year has been among soap's most popular storylines since then.
The announcement comes on the heels the show’s third GLAAD Award nomination for the storyline this year.
