Glee ‘Raised the Bar’ For TV Inclusiveness With Gay Kiss
On last night's Glee, the New Directions won regionals after hitting the stage with a pair of original songs — a first for the series — but that isn't what anyone is talking about this morning. After months of hints and winks, fans of FOX's hit musical finally got what they've been waiting for: The characters of Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss) kissed for the first time. And it wasn't a peck. It also wasn't overtly sexual or desperate, it wasn't rushed or clouded with turmoil, and it certainly wasn't played for laughs, the way many kisses between men are on TV. It was perfect.
