In the past few years more and more TV shows have included gay characters, which is a very good thing. Game of Thrones, True Blood, Glee, Modern Family, Smash, Pretty Little Liars, American Horror Story, and many others. But of all those shows, the only one most kids are allowed to watch is Glee. But if you want to give kids positive role models and the certainty that your feelings and that part of your identity are normal well represented and accepted in our society you'll need more than just Glee. From a kid's point of view there's actually a severe lack of queer characters in the shows and films they get to see. All the Disney princesses marry princes.
