“The Vampire Diaries” Gets Its First Gay Character

The Vampire Diaries is one of the most homoerotic shows on basic television, but the supernatural series has never had an out gay character—until now. E! Online is reporting that when the show returns in 2014, the show’s cast include Luke, a gay teen of the handsome and sarcastic variety.

Oh great, another sassy gay character!

A new hottie is enrolling at Whitmore after winter break! And he’ll be spending time with Caroline! Except he’s so not into her in that way as Luke, handsome and sarcastic, is gay. And also happens to have a sister on campus, one that he will do [or sacrifice] anything to protect.

If Luke has to be the bitchy gay sidekick, we pray producers give him at least the hint of a sex life. I mean its bad enough we have to drool over Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder  without any hope of a love connection.
