I don't think you can count LaForge; he was never portrayed as gay on the series itself. In fact, he was always chasing this woman or that.

On a side note, is Transgender (or is it transexual) mostly an ethnic thing? In my neighborhood in LA, there's tons of gay black dudes who dress up as chicks (almost all work as hookers, sometimes out of my buildings laundry room) and I often see one white guy dressed as a chick, but he/she has a normal job at a store, seems more like a guy going through a sex change.

Favorite quote of the month, as I was jogging one morning past two trannies sitting on a curb at 8am (waiting for the free clinic to open) I over heard one say to the other "I would of sucked the cum out of HIS ass". Just two trannies discussing work.

Neil Patrick Harris's brother on How I Met Your Mother, Wayne Brady. That's kind of the joke, though, considering NPH is gay and WB's not, but everyone thinks he is.

I hadn't thought about it, but holy shit it's almost harder to come up with non-ethnic gay characters.

You all put way too much effort into cataloging your fag spooks. Makes me wonder.
