Teenage gay characters on television are getting more action than their adult counterparts, the Los Angeles Times has found.

In an article titled Gay And Lesbian Characters Are Popping Up On Shows For Young People published on Monday, the daily takes note of the increasing number of gay teen characters.

“As it becomes more common for teenagers to realize – and then tell others – that they are gay or lesbian, there is also a growing number of teen characters on TV programs geared toward teens going through the same thing. The CW's 90210, which returns on Jan. 24, joins the ranks of shows like Glee, Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, Hellcats, Greek and the new MTV series Skins in showcasing young, gay roles,” Whitney Friedlander wrote in the piece.

The gay characters on the teen shows are also getting more action than their adult counterparts, Friedlander notes pointing to gay kisses on Gossip Girl, 90210, Pretty Little Liars, Greek and Skins.

“Teen shows don't seem to have the same problem. Gay TV youths have been kissing since the days of Dawson's Creek and Buffy,” she writes.

The article arrives as Glee producers prepare to ramp up romance for their gay teen, Kurt Hummel, played by Chris Colfer.
