From Mitch and Cam in Modern Family, to David and Bryan in The New Normal, to Ned Weeks in The Normal Heart, and Patrick in Looking, gay characters tend to be pretty well off.
Like television programming in general, there isn't much socioeconomic diversity in gay-focused television shows, which perpetuates the stereotype that the LGBT community is unusually affluent.
Those characters wouldn't necessarily be rich either.
Halkitis and Gates both believe that the way these shows depict class is a bit skewed.
The reality, Gates says, is that LGBT couples may not have kids, meaning there's money to be spent on other things.
"Close to half of them would be non-white," he said.And while the numbers are balanced, there are still no Asian-American characters (Patrick's straight co-worker is Asian-American but is in hardly any of the episodes) of significance.On network television, there have been a couple of recent sitcoms that delved into gay life, most notably Sean Saves the World (2013) and The New Normal (2012), whose main protagonists are gay parents.The characters in these movies are based on real people, and filmmakers and casting directors are, more than they are when they get to play with fiction, restricted in the freedom to create and recreate characters.That was evident in Milk (2008) too: With these movies, the complaint isn't that the stories being told.
