Via NPR: Who's Gay on TV?
Two of the most handsome men currently on TV.

"We're having a baby, Bri!" croons one of the leads on NBC's The New Normal. "This is our family. You, me and that kid forever."
It's a mini-boomlet, says real-life white gay dad and sociology professor Joshua Gamson. Not too long ago, he says, pop culture mainly defined gay men as promiscuous and deviant, rather than monogamous and devoted to their families.
"It does seem like a strong counter-stereotype of how gay men have been portrayed over the past, whatever, 50 years," he says.
Think about one of the most popular sitcoms on TV today, says Max Mutchnik, who helped create Will and Grace.
"Modern Family introduced us to the whole world of gaybies," he noted.
