Domenick Scudera

In 1977, there was no positive gay imagery in American culture. No movies or television shows had gay characters. "Coming out" was not a thing. I had no idea what homosexuality was. So ... Luke became my boyhood hero, my role model. He was someone who feels different and has a secret, like me.

With this new episode coming out, the stakes are high. I'm not just talking about the franchise here. When the first three episodes came out, there wasn't as much at stake. It was backstory.
