Jack Falahee, who plays gay law student Connor Walsh on ABC's How To Get Away With Murder, says he's glad people are talking about his sex scenes.

Peter Nowalk, who created the Shonda Rhimes executive produced show, previously said that Murder would not shy away from showing gay sex because “it's part of life.”

In the show's pilot, Connor is seen picking up, then bedding Oliver (played by Conrad Ricamora), an informant for a murder case. In subsequent episodes, Connor and Oliver appear to be developing a relationship.

“The fact that there are members of the LGBT community, and friends of the community, that are feeling just pleased and happy to see a character on TV that is depicted in maybe a positive light, I think that's great,” Falahee told E! Online.

“TV is sort of catching up and it's been very black and white what we've seen on the screen and very paranormative and patriarchal, and I think that now that we're exploring it, it's something that's being talked about, which is great.”

Falahee, 25, added that Peter Nowalk has created a show based around “real people. And that's fantastic.”
