It's been a long, long time since I've watched Philadelphia, so I know I need to revisit it in the near future. Just think, though, in less than 10 years after the movie came out, Will & Grace was on TV and Bravo was almost all gay, all the time with Queer Eye and Boy Meets Boy. A lot changed in a relatively short amount of time, all things considered.
I, OTOH, remember when Bravo was a network so named for showing Janus/Criterion foreign films and BBC cultural events, and was one of the more expensive premium channels on the air.
And then the CEO made a big deal about Coming Out, and the TV industry thought this would bring more "diversity" to the cable-scape.
Now, they show entire day-long blocks of Interior Therapy, Real Housewives, Princesses of Long Island, and Watch What Happens Live with one of the network execs hosting celebrity news all by his own lil' overenthusiastic self. The definition of "Programming Diversity" is entirely up to you.
(So much for the old stereotype about gays liking old classic films...)
