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.

3. The Walking Dead: 

Michonne (Danai Gurira) sliced her way in to Walking Dead lore at the end of the season 2 finale, waving her Katana samurai sword, with two armless, jawless zombies in shackles, a perfectly toned body, and a kick ass mentality.  She arrived on the scene just in time to save series regular Andrea (Laurie Holden) from imminent death.  Together the two ladies set off to find safety from the undead.

Straight in the comics, but wonderfully butch in the TV series, week after week during season 3, fans of Michonne watch the tension between her and Andrea, hoping that they will seal the deal.  But, no worries, even if Andrea and Michonne don’t hook up, there could be a lady love in Michonne’s future!
