Who Would You Rather?: Television Characters Who Came Out

It seems like forever ago, but we recently posted about the young gay guy on Days Of Our Lives coming out. It got us to thinking – why haven’t we taken an in-depth look at other (cute) televisual gays that have come out? And by “in-depth”, we mean “asking you which actor who played the gay character you’d rather 69 with”. It’s a lot like 60 Minutes here at Manhunt Daily.

Remember these are actors who have been part of a “coming out” storyline television where it was a big drama and shit. If they’re just “the gay guy”, then we’re not including them.So we’ve got Randy Harrison (“Justin” from the US version of Queer As Folk), Michael C. Hall (David from Six Feet Under), Chris Evans’ actor brother Scott Evans (Oliver Fish on One Life To Live), Van Hansis (Luke Snyder on As The World Turns), Jake Silbermann (Noah Mayer on As The World Turns), Kerr Smith (Jack McPhee on Dawson’s Creek), Wilson Cruz (Ricky Vasquez on My So Called Life), Shawn Pyfrom (Andrew Van De Kamp on Desperate Housewives), Lee Tergesen (Tobias Beecher on OZ), Jensen Atwood (Wade Robinson on Noah’s Arc), Adamo Ruggiero (Marco Del Rossi on Degrassi: The Next Generation), and Gareth David Lloyd (Ianto Jones on Torchwood). WHEW! You’ve got a big decision ahead of you!
