New Queer Characters Come To Glee, Days Of Our Lives And Hung

Gays Of Our Lives

If you’re not a devotee of Days of Our Lives, you might be surprised to discover there’s still any soap operas left. If you are a fan, though, then it might not be a major surprise that one young character is about to come out.

Chandler Massey

Actor Chandler Massey tells EW.com that his character, Will Horton, will be squeaking open the closet door over the next few weeks. (If you know anything about soaps, then you know it could be Memorial Day before Will actually tells anyone he’s a homo.) Massey has been with the show since February 2010—before then, he had roles on One Tree Hill, Eastbound & Down and Army Wives.

Though Days has been a bit behind the curve on LGBT characters compared to other daytime dramas, it seems to be making up for lost time: Freddie Smith joined Days this summer as gay teen Sonny. But will the two cute lads be a couple? “There are a lot of guys on the show, so it’s going to be interesting to see who I end up falling for,” Smith says “Someone new? Someone on the show?  We all make jokes, `who am I going to make out with first?’ It’s going to be fun to see.”

 

Hung Around Long Enough

We’re not sure if HBO’s Hung has been hung-ering for ratings, but the show seems to be trying to court a queer following.

Thomas Jane and Jamie Clayton

Which is odd, given that Thomas Jane’s character, Ray Drecker, must be the only hustler in the world whose client base is exclusively female.

Anyway, we first took notice when Jane revealed he turned a few tricks back in his starving-actor days. Oh, who didn’t?

Then the show finally gives us a (partial) view of Ray Drecker’s legendary dong (NSFW). Now we’re cooking.

Now we’ve gotten word that trans actress Jamie Clayton will appear as one of Ray’s clients in a two-episode arc starting Sunday, November 6.

What’s next—a GLAAD Media Award?

 

Of Course, You Know, This Means Warbler!

Grant Gustin as Sebastian

We already mentioned there was a new nasty gay boy coming to Dalton to stir up trouble for Darren and Kurt. Now Billboard is reporting Grant Gustin will make his debut as conniving slut Sebastian in the November 8 episode of Glee.

“He’s very confident and comfortable with who he is and what he wants,” Gustin said of his character. “He’s after Blaine, obviously, and he’s also trying to take the place that Blaine had as the leader of the Warblers. He’s been referred to as a villain, which I guess is true in the sense that he’s going to get what he wants and he doesn’t care who he steps on along the way.”

We feel a rumble coming on.

      Could Glee possibly have any more gay characters? Kurt, Blaine, Karofsky, Santana, Britney, Sandy, and now the new guy? Not to mention at least 6 gay actors and a guest star (NPH)

      @Aiden: Did you forget about Santana? Also, Lima, OH is a pretty white city in general.

      No re-mention of American Horror Story? Now Zach Q and his BF’s character are perfect and played perfect…. true to life. It blows the others right out of the water with possibly the exception of Kurt from Glee.

      I’m pretty sure that next Glee episode is where Blaine will pop Kurt’s cherry and Finn will pop Rachel’s.

      Aiden, the ethnic diversity on Glee is already ridiculous considering it’s supposed to be taking place in small town Ohio.

      Also, NPH’s character wasn’t gay.

      @Atlas: Did they explicitly say in the episode that NPH’s chasracter was straight? If there’s a gay actor playing a character who is very much into singing, dancing and theatre with no ring on his finger, and no mention of a wife or girlfriend, and on an extremely gay-friendly show nonetheless, i’m going to assume the character is gay unless it is confirmed otherwise.

      @SuperCat: I’ve got a sneaking suspicion that Kurt might be a brutal aggressive top and blaine a bottom. It would be just like Ryan Murphy to throw us a screwball like that with absolutely no warning.

      Yeah, the Hung premise it a total joke. So we have a hustler who doesn’t service men??? And this takes place, where, in Iran? It’s the biggest pile of BS to think there are ANY male hustlers who’s client base isn’t 90% men.

      @Riker – NPH’s character, “Bryan Ryan” was straight on GLEE, and, yes, the actualy did make multiple references to his wife and children, and he actually cheated on his wife by having hate sex with Sue Sylvester in an alcove above her office. (Bryan: You should know I’m married. Sue: Not a problem.) It was a weird storyline altogether (I’m not sure what the point was other than a NPH guest starring venue) but the character was most assuredly straight. It’s all good, as I think every time a gay actor shows he or she can play a straight character we all win and the road for closeted actors gets just that much easier to travel toward coming out.

      Nobody ever mentions the Dean from Community. Sure, it’s not a terribly popular show and he’s ambiguously gay rather than openly gay but he’s still super gay.

      @Atlas: This show isn’t exactly realistic.

      They’ve wanted to make Will on Days gay for quite a few years, but never followed through on it. Now that they have this actor, it’s a bit more believable, because any time he’s in a scene with a girl his own age, it just feels like a total lie.

      @Riker: Well, something like musical theatre is always a gathering place for homos, so it’s not a surprise that there’s 500 gay kids on Glee.

      I am sure that the current crop of teenage viewers are welcoming the diversity of “gay” characters. Not everybody wants to be a nelly queen nor, a gym rat body without a brain. There are other gay characters to identify with and mold yourself around that image. It’s all a matter of discovery and, finding out what skin fits is just part of the maturation process.

      Does anyone still watch Glee (didn’t learn your lesson after Season Two)? Ryan Murphy has moved whatever talent he has left to American Horror Story. Or maybe there’s a cross-over episode in the works: Rubber Man dismembers Kurt and the Frankenstein baby in the basement uses Rachel for spare parts.
