GayTV Guide

The television landscape for gay characters is always changing. Currently, gay representation on primetime television is on an upswing and this guide provides a breakdown of where you can find series with gay and bisexual male characters, who those characters are, and when you can check them out. *

Feel free to leave comments below when any of these change, or whenever a new gay or bisexual character pops up on television.
