It’s the 20th anniversary of Bianca’s important storyline which was written by the late soap legend Agnes Nixon. This year Lucci praised Nixon and talked about the story with Vanity Fair.
“The best kind of storytelling reflects the culture,” she said. She noted that Bianca came out to Erica, “at a time when a lot of kids who were teenagers or in their 20s who were gay were afraid to come out to their parents, because they were afraid their parents wouldn’t love them.”

The plot has been called one of daytime’s most memorable storylines. Erica scheduled a press conference with a reluctant Bianca who was made to dress like her glamizon diva mom. She finally exploded saying, “This isn’t me, Mom. It never was.”
Bianca then said: “I’m gay.”
Erica tried to deny reality and accused her daughter of saying “hateful” things to her. Bianca was stunned and yelled, “Mom, stop dismissing me, please. You are not the only person in this room!”
