FOX’s TV shows have been breaking boundaries and paving the way for minority for the past few years and other networks have followed.

This Thursday, FOX’s “Love Connection” makes another breakthrough with it’s first openly lesbian contestant.

This episode features Liz Baxter, the show’s first openly lesbian single, who is sent on three blind dates with the hope of finding a love connection.

She then tells all in front of a live studio audience, as her dates also react.

One of Liz’s dates is not out to her family and comes out to them on national television.

Also featured on the episode is single Evan Jones, a networking engineer and photographer from Atlanta.

Don’t miss the all-new “Episode Eight” episode of LOVE CONNECTION airing July 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
