      I wonder if we’ll ever get a gay male character that isn’t so typically gay…

      @McMike: you should check out the (soon to be cancelled) series “Caprica” on scifi, One of the main chaeacters on the show is a very non-stereotypical Gay man. The tough organized crime boss brother of a straight laced lawyer. A very interesting role that got almost no acnowledgdment from the media, gay or straight!

      I don’t think that Mitch is stereotypically gay. In fact, in the pilot, he was quick to get on people’s case about a slanderous term used. In my experience living in Miami, even at gay events, gay people are not quick to stand up for ourselves.

      @Topher: You don’t think he’s stereotypically gay? Watch the clip above. The joke is about how seriously he takes choreography. Jesus.
