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.
