The gays invaded TV

Last night I watched this week's episode of Glee.

It featured a story line about teenage bullying that culminated in a straight boy-on-gay boy slow dance at their parents' wedding. This dance may have been the sweetest moment on TV this season. Not just in terms of story, although that really was quite a moment.

But because this is a blockbuster show with huge ratings. Maybe America has finally moved on from the treat-gays-like-shit mentality.

It also got me to thinking... does every show have a gay character?

Glee, Brothers & Sisters (3 main characters are gay), True Blood (at least 2 but seriously, the show is as gay as they come), Nurse Jackie, Modern Family (married men with adopted baby), Desperate Housewives, The Office...

What am I missing?

(By the way - where are the lesbians on TV?)
