Matthew Morrison, who plays Will Schuester on the Fox musical-comedy hit Glee, says he's proud of the show's gay storyline involving Chris Colfer's character.

Colfer's Kurt Hummel has found love in the show's second season. In last week's episode, the choir boy landed his first boyfriend, Dalton Academy Warblers frontman Blaine Anderson, played by newcomer Darren Criss.

Their romance – more specifically their first kiss – was booed by Saturday Night Live alum Victoria Jackson.

In an interview with gay glossy Out, Morrison said he was proud of the show's gay inclusion.

Mr. Schuester β€œis very supportive. He has such a love for Kurt and is instrumental in getting him to be who he is. I'm proud of our show for that relationship. The episode about the birds and the bees really got to me. I never thought about how different the conversation is between a father and a gay son or daughter. That was so beautifully done. That moment in television could change lives. A lot of the storyline is what Ryan Murphy wanted as a kid. He writes through Kurt. I'm so proud of it.”

Morrison added that was thrilled to work with singer-songwriter Elton John.
