‘9-1-1: Lone Star‘ is a show about firefighters that has managed to stay woke, not shying away from being extremely inclusive by tackling difficult topics. The series revolves around a team of firefighters as they handle their personal conflicts and fatal emergencies on a daily basis due to their job.
So far, the series has paid significant attention to the conflicts of a central, homosexual character. However, the character does not serve the role of some form of token or checkbox to tick off inclusive representation. This is evidenced in the most effective manner with the latest (fifth) episode of the series which broaches an even tougher topic.

9-1-1: Lone Star Episode 5 Recap:
The fifth episode of the first season of ‘9-1-1: Lone Star’ turned out to be significantly more heartbreaking than what was promised to the audiences earlier. The episode sees the firefighting team dealing with emergencies at a bull semen factory and a male strip club. Can viewers be blamed to expect a very light episode?
While fighting a fire at a bull semen factory, the team starts to introspect and question whether they still want to continue with their current job. On the other hand, at the male strip club, the firefighters have an awkward exchange with a male stripper dressed as a firefighter.
Paul saves a woman named Josie at the strip club and immediately hits it off with her. He considers asking her out but is scared of the consequences since he is transgender. T.K. speaks to Paul about this while they work out. T.K. tells Paul about his partner having dumped him for someone else. This makes Paul more comfortable and he tells T.K. about his fears.
Eventually, Paul manages to ask Josie out. They go drinking and seem to be having a great time together. However, after Josie suggests going to her apartment, Paul says that he wants to tell her something. While their conversation is not shown, viewers know that he tells Josie about him being a trans man.
The next day, Josie visits the fire station. She tells Paul that she is not as “evolved” as she had thought. She tells him that she really likes him but would not be able to get over his sexuality.
