10 Shows We Can't Believe Don't Have Gay Characters

These days you can’t swing a cat on television without hitting a scattered LGBT character or two on just about any given night. Sundays give us The Good Wife’s bisexual Kalinda while Revenge has bisexual Nolan and Shameless has a gay son. Modern Family and The New Normal offer up gay dads while freshman series Go On and Chicago Fire feature full-on lesbian characters in those ensembles. And of course, there are tried-and-true, beloved lesbian and gay characters on Glee, Grey’s Anatomy and Pretty Little Liars.

9. Once Upon a Time: 

What’s a fairy tale without a few fairies? In a world rife with fairies, princesses, evil queens and enchanted forests, you’d think there’d be a gay character among the bunch on Once Upon a Time. While a Mulan/Sleeping Beauty Sapphic pairing would be the ideal, we’d settle for a handsome andro fairytale Prince who looks uncannily like Shane from the L Word to  sweep anyone of these women off of their feet.
