Beau Mirchoff as “Matty” on Awkward.
Teen Wolf may be howlingly homoerotic (see our Teen Wolf gay highlight reel for proof), but let’s not overlook the welcome gay overtones of another MTV gem. Awkward. is nearing the end of it’s third season and since the show’s launch in July 2011 it has featured plenty of queer highlights, such as that proud bromance between Jake (Brett Davern) and Matty (Beau Mirchoff), witty gay sidekick Clark (Joey Haro) throwing shade from the sidelines and secretly hooking up with closeted, now-deceased Ricky (Matthew Fahey). There was also that “It Gets Moderately OK” video and Ming (Jessica Lu) taking a girl to the prom.
