I'll admit it, I'm a fan of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars", have been ever since a country singer named Sara Evans was on there.

A few seasons ago, one of the stars was Margaret Cho, an openly bi comedienne.
This season, not only will openly (and flamboyantly) gay Carson Kressley be competing, Chaz Bono will also be competing-formerly Chastity Bono, Sonny and Cher's daughter.
Not to mention, judge Bruno Tonioli and dancer Louis van Amstel are also openly gay.

Personally, I'm impressed that a major television network has hired two gay men, and so far, have asked a bi woman, gay man and FtM man to compete. It seems like they're at least going in the right direction. It might be worth noting that Modern Family, with a gay couple who actually adopted a child and are raising her (admittedly a cliched gay couple, but still), is on ABC as well.
