Gay people don’t just want to see queer characters on television, we want to see them doing interesting things and facing challenges other than the bullying and coming-out narratives that have historically made up the bulk of television’s LGBT content. We long for nuanced personalities. We crave updated depictions of family life in a nation where more than half of us can legally marry and more and more of us are raising children. We want to be surprised and amused and impressed by the lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, and trans characters who show up on our televisions and tablets and smartphones. We don’t want to count them.
