Gay Characters Always Make TV Shows More ‘Edgy’

Straight television characters are just so boring sometimes! They sleep with their exes, their friends, their friends’ exes. Sometimes they get married, have kids, divorce! Other times they stay single, drink to excess, pine for the one that will never have them! But as soon as you introduce A Gay Character onto your television show, like BBC sitcom My Family is doing, you become “edgy and relevant.”
