Next Sunday when Kevin Walker marries his boyfriend Scotty Wandell on ABC's prime time drama Brothers & Sisters we will be witnessing more than a marriage, we will be watching gay history – it will be first such union on prime time network television between series regulars.

The couple's wedding (technically a domestic partnership in California) will cap off season two of the series.

Rumors about a wedding started to surface when Luke MacFarlane who plays Scotty was asked to become a cast member of the show. Since then MacFarlane has outed himself and is currently the only out actor playing a gay role on network television.

Kevin Walker's character has been gay since the show's inception. Recently Uncle Saul (played by Ron Rifkin) also has come out on the show, giving the drama a cast of three male gay regulars. Brothers & Sisters then has the distinction of having the highest number of gay characters on network prime time.

All these gay characters surely caught the eye of gay media watchers GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) who recently honored the show with a Media Award for outstanding drama series.

Brothers & Sisters airs Sundays on ABC.

On The CW's Gossip Girl a gay bomb hits the show as a member of the cast comes out – and becomes the gossip. We already know who's coming out, it's Serena's brother Eric (played by Blake Lively). The May 5th episode titled All About My Brother places Eric in a compromising position.

Gossip Girl airs Mondays on The CW.
