Matthew Morrison, who plays Will Schuester on the Fox musical-comedy hit Glee, says he admires Chris Colfer's character's relationship with his father.

Colfer plays gay McKinley High student Kurt Hummel. The choir boy landed his first boyfriend, Dalton Academy Warblers star Blaine Anderson, played by newcomer Darren Criss, on the show's second season.

Kurt's blue collar father Burt, played by Mike O'Malley, responded positively in the show's first season to his son's coming out.

“I love the relationship with Kurt and his father, and I don't think it could have been done with any other adult,” Morrison told glossy Metrosource. “I know a lot of that storyline is based on [Glee creator Ryan Murphy] and what he wishes he had as a kid, things he wanted to have and he didn't have. I think that relationship between Kurt and his father is so beautiful and it just touches me to the core every week.”

Morrison added that the believes Glee is the gayest show on TV.

“I feel so lucky to be almost a part of [the gay] community – having done Broadway and – to be on pretty much the gayest show on TV right now,” he said.

In addition to five students on the show being either gay, bisexual or questioning, several peripheral characters are also gay, including Rachel Berry's yet-to-be-seen dads and Sandy (The League of Doom's Pink Dagger.)
