I remember when the gay couple on buffy was a big deal. For a while they had to veil their sexual relationship by showing the two characters doing magic. When they had their first big on screen kiss, it was a huge deal.
I also remember that when one of the gay characters was killed off on the show, Joss Whedon was accused of being ant-gay. Apparently, the two characters had just had sex prior to one of then being killed so gay-rights advocates saw this as Joss Whedon's way of punishing homosexual activity
I hate the whole "you should have gay characters, but don't make them bad-guys, die, wrong, etc" aspect I hear occasionally.
The Doctor Who spin-off "Torchwood" recently killed off a gay character, but it received a huge positive review from critics. Mostly because they didn't treat him as "gay", but rather a main character, who is the love interest of the main character, who happens to be gay. (I.e: being gay wasn't the main quality, like being straight isn't for others).
Of course, some people still reacted with the whole "homophobia" line, which is funny, because the lead actor and the writer are both openly gay.
