Cultural Impact of Will & Grace

The popularity of Will & Grace is widely considered to have contributed to the growing acceptance of LGBT rights in American culture in the late 90s and early 2000s. In a May 2012 interview with Meet the Press, even U.S. Vice President Joe Biden cited the series's influence, saying "I think Will & Grace did more to educate the American public than almost anything anybody has ever done. People fear that which is different. Now they're beginning to understand."[1]
