What LGBT TV Character Helped You Come Out?

TV is so damn important.

Before you came out, what LGBT+ character from television helped you realise your sexuality, or gave you really good advice that helped you?

For me, Andrew Van de Kamp (Shawn Pyfrom) in Desperate Housewives helped in a big way, as he was coming to terms with his sexuality at the same time as I was coming to terms with my own.

And luckily, I lived in a household that loved Desperate Housewives, so I was able to watch episodes without anyone else knowing that I was playing very close attention to the development of his character.

Let us know about an LGBT character that helped you come out and how they helped, and it may appear in a future BuzzFeed Community post or video.
