Cable Guys

Gaytv_2 I learned something new today. I knew that the first gay kiss on television happened in the 90s on Will and Grace, but I didn't realize that the first gay cuddle scene was actually in the 80s on ABC's thirtysomething — and that the network lost millions in ad dollars over it.

I came across this interesting piece today via Fleshbot. has put together a list of the most influential gay male sex scenes on television. It's no surprise that cable shows like Queer as Folk and Noah's Arc dominate the list (Will and Grace is progressive, but we have yet to see Will and Jack in a three-way romp with Karen), but the commentary and significance ratings for each scene make for an interesting read. . . and pictures are nice to look at, too.
