    I don't watch a ton of TV, but I do have a small roster of favorite shows, and lately I feel like I pick out a cast member on each one who would set off my gaydar if he or she were real. Either that, or I feel like they would be penned as explicitly gay twenty years from now.

    Cough! Dexter!

    Patrick Jane from The Mentalist.

    I don't watch this one all that regularly, but based on the main character alone, then Jesus, if he were any more of a hothouse flower, he'd live in a greenhouse.

    A man with expertly tousled blond Roman boy locks who wears dapper suits and drives around in a dandy silver car. Has zero sexual chemistry with the female members of the cast -- most of whom just side-eye him as if to say "The hell did this trick come from?" -- and there's a conveniently dead/murdered wife in his past. Prone to curious, effete affectations and loves to drink tea at his antique wooden desk.

    You are right. I never really thought of that while watching the show though.

    I agree, and it is funny that you mention it. I was watching it last night, and thinking the same thing.

    His hair is gorgeous.

    If Roseanne was on now, then butch, arty, caustic, clearly hardcore lezzie daughter Darlene would be the out token gay kid of the Connor brood. Anytime she was (forced) to do anything remotely girly, it was played for high camp hilarity.

    Remember her immortal starring role in a local TV ad?:

    Cory and Shawn on Boy Meets World. You know they were the real couple all along, and Topanga and Angela were just beards. All that stuff about Cory and Topanga being in love since they were in diapers? Just a cover-up.

    Jeff Winger from Community -- Patrick Jane's perfect boyfriend?

    Played by straight queer Joel McHale, this character -- a supposed bitch magnet -- wears some of the gayest ensems currently on air, like International Male meets Lands' End. Sports a super-textured, quasi-butch hipster 'do. When he isn't calibrating his body fat or waxing his chest, he's getting sexually harassed by the randy college dead with a closet full of Lada Gaga-inspired fashions. Is constantly accused of being gay and/or taking multiple dicks at a time by the cranky older member of the study group. Hates his errant father who never loved him. Loves nipple play.

    Do the math.

    OK, it's a movie character, but along the same lines of thinking:
    James Bond would have been an awesome gay character!

    Check out the show's gushy Urban Dictionary entry, which is a big tip-off:


    A show about a boy, Cory Matthews, growing up in the suburbs of philly with a best friend,Shawn Hunter, who lives in a trailer and is gorgeous. Cory also has a life long girlfriend named Topanga Lawerence and lives next store to his teacher Mr. Feeny, Cory also has a brother Eric who is cuter then Shawn and stupid....all in all Boy Meets World is awesome and i wish i were a part of the cast.

    I always thought the Golden Girls were like three gay archetypes: the sarcastic, witty one with his two friends, the dumb twinkie and the slutty dandy. Sophia would still be the sarcastic one's mother though, maybe its her height but I cant see her character as a male.

    Shawn and Gus not only seem gay but have such a bromance they could pass for a couple...

    You have to be Canadian to understand this one, but definitely LD from Degrassi Junior High/ Degrassi High. Not a doubt in my mind that she is a lessie.
