LA Times on gay teen characters on ‘Glee,’ ‘90210’ and more

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: Readers of Greg In Hollywood have already been following the goings-on of gay characters like Kurt on ‘Glee’ and Teddy on ‘90210’ but it’s always interesting to check out a trend piece like the one in today’s Calendar section of the ‘Los Angeles Times.’

Reporter Whitney Friedlander cites characters on ‘Gossip Girl,’ ‘Glee,’ ‘Pretty Little Liars,’ ‘Hellcats,’ ‘Greek,’ ‘90210’ and the new MTV series ‘Skins.’

She talked to ‘90210′s’ showrunner and executive producer Rebecca Sinclair who said of the decision to have Teddy (Trevor Donovan) come out of the closet this season: “I felt like the world of ’90210′ was missing the gay characters that it would realistically have. If I had created the show, I would definitely have made one of the main characters gay. And honestly, in a genre that depends on the coupling, decoupling and re-coupling of its characters, it behooves us to find the most diverse ways to do that.”
