- One of the recurring sketches in an episode of The Catherine Tate show features a lower-class Northern Irish family who are portrayed as stereotypical violent, rough Belfastians, but surprisingly (and overly) accepting of the teenage son's homosexuality. In one sketch, she chats with a neighbor, and at first it sounds like they're talking about the Orange parade and jail:
Kathleen: "Will ye be marchin' with us on Sundee, Rosemary?"Rosemary: "Aye. We'll show the bastards."Kathleen: "How's yer Martin?"Rosemary: "Fine."Kathleen: "He'll be out soon, no doubt."Rosemary: "Fifteen years!"Kathleen: "Aye. Well. He's a hard man, but he's a principled man."
- At the end of the episode, the family can be seen marching together in a gay pride parade. It wasn't until a repeat viewing, when I noticed Rosemary amongst them, that I realized the above conversation was really about gay pride.
