TV Gays

Not only is he gay, he is also pretty unique, complex, powerful and a fascinating character to watch. And one of the more important ones in Scandal.
Another unique gay character, pretty messed up and deep, whose storylines are intriguing. Noel Fisher also plays him really well.
Mickey Milkovich's pairing, he's as complex as Mickey, although not as unique or interesting. But, being in Shameless, he is very interesting. Cameron Monaghan also plays him well.
Coming from the success of the book series, Alec is seriously the biggest gay character in all of YA fiction, along with his pair Magnus.

Lito Rodriguez - Sense8

His scenes are hot and unapologetic.

Hernando Fuentes - Sense8

Fresh from his RBD experience, Alfonso "Poncho" Herrera plays the pair of Lito in Sense8.
One of the main characters from the thriller show How to Get Away with Murder, whose gay sex scenes pushed network boundaries.

Kevin Walker - Brothers & Sisters

It was somewhat groundbreaking what B&S did with Kevin and Scotty's relationship, since gay characters weren't so common back then, especially on network TV.

Philippe I, Duke of Orléans - Versailles

Period gay prince, brother of the king, and existed on real life.

Eliot Waugh - The Magicians

Will Lexington - Nashville

Chris Carmack as a gay country singer in a soapy TV show.

Jude - Hit the Floor

Jude - The Fosters

Along with Connor, formed the youngest gay couple in TV shows, it also had the first gay kiss between such young actors.
He was huge with Kurt in Glee.
Being a gay in such a macho TV show as Spartacus, and with a happy ending to boot with his pairing Nasir!

Isak Valtersen - Skam

Bruno - Merlí

Joshua Rosza - The Originals

Ripped straight from the books, although there it's not explicit, since Loras and Renly both aren't POVs.
He would have been a fine king, I believe.

Walt Reynolds - The Carrie Diaries

Kevin Keller - Riverdale

Josh Wilson - Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Steven Carrington - Dynasty

Shane Harvey - Faking It

The king of affeminate gay characters.

Jamal Lyon - Empire

Thomas - Political Animals

Sebastian Stan played the gay son of Sigourney Weaver in this miniseries (that was to have more seasons (it should've had!) but didn't).

Max Blum - Happy Endings

Danny Māhealani - Teen Wolf

Teen Wolf was a show with a lot of queerbaiting, and it had other gay characters, but Danny is here to represent them.

Nathan Miller - The 100

Calvin Owens - Greek

James Flint - Black Sails

He was the main character but his being gay was barely shown, even though the numerous lesbians had a lot of steamy screen time. But still, being gay at that time was a big motivation for him, psychologically. It was important.
