    Believe it or not - it could be a new show coming to NBC, starring Sean Hayes.

    http://insidetv.ew.com/2011/08/15/sean-hayes-peter-tolan/

    It would be a "family comedy".
    And the family would be a gay couple raising a 12 year old together.

    And it would be a great step forward for representing gay characters on television.

    He'll definitely need to be a different kind of a gay character than the one he was on Will & Grace.

    The LAST thing we need is MORE TV shows enforcing gay stereotypes.

    Even if he tries the netword will try to create a similar character to Jack. If a show's focusing on the gender of the parents than of course its going to have all the stereotypes. One of the dad is going to be the macho guy who works and the other is going to be the feminine one who stays home. Its not the sex of parent that matters, its the gender. Gender is socially constructed and to be a couple our society enforce them on us. So even if its a sam-sex couple, the gender roles still apply. One will fill the man's role and the other will fill the woman's role.

    Yep yep. And that's the last thing we need now.

    What we need are more shows that have more of a Brokeback Mountain feel to them...regular guys who behave like regular guys and blend well in public. That movie made lots of headway for gays, but the moment passed quickly because no other similar movies have been made. So far, that's the only movie I'm aware of that's showed gay men blending in with other men.

    I like the Griffin character on Secret life of the American Teenager. He just like any other teenager but happens to be gay. None of the negative gay stereotypes. His sexuality is a just a matter of fact and not the centre of focus. Which is what we need.

    Why should we have to blend in and be like everyone else? One of the best things about being gay is that it's more interesting and we're NOT like everyone else. Vive la difference!

    Wow! That's FREAKIN' GREAT News...


    Fingers crossed for the show to be realized, and why not? The whole entertainment business is based on LGBT personnel (Liz Taylor: Without gays and blacks, they would never be a Hollywood)

    I really hope to see such a show!

    News like that can make one's day... Thanks for posting

    They keep adding gay characters on TV these days.. well its not too bad, considering that formerly, they were always characters mocking homosexuality
