When Torres was killed off from the series in 2013, controversy ensued, When Degrassi introduced its large and loyal audience to Adam Torres, an authentic, multi-dimensional transgender character, the show not only made television history, but set a new standard industry standard for LGBT inclusion.With so few transgender characters on television, we are disappointed that Adam’s story had to end this way, and we hope other shows will follow Degrassi’s lead in bringing stories like his to viewers...The series is now considered the first incarnation and premiered on CTV on October 14, 2001 and then ended on MTV Canada and Teen Nick on August 2, 2015.It is the fourth series set in the fictional Degrassi universe created by Schuyler and Kit Hood in 1979.She was last seen going to live with family in Ajax.
But, um, every time the camera shifted from the experts to the couple, they were seated differently.
The combination of Adam being a favorite character, and Jordan being at the end of her contract, presented a unique opportunity to tell this story through such a beloved character.
As saddened as we are to say goodbye to Adam, we feel this storyline will affect even more lives in an authentic way...
After being outed by Bianca, he was once again the victim of transphobia, although he eventually earned the respect and admiration that he deserved from his classmates.
Another major problem for Adam had been finding love as a trans man.
