The thing is, it was all done completely unintentionally, with no irony and no ill intentions. Did any of the folks involved in the production of Peter Pan Live! think that they were producing anything that was gay, or at least gayer than any sort of theater production (which is inevitably produced, at least in part, by gay men) inherently is? Probably not. The technicolor sets, the writhing purple, humanoid crocodile, the so tight, homoerotic costumes, the drag makeup — it was probably all done with no thought as to how hetero/homosexual the things appeared to be. But, that’s what happened: NBC produced a version of Peter Pan in which Neverland is the fairytale place where all grandparents dread that their gay grandsons hope to live. It is NBC’s own Castro.
