The Gay Agenda


By Bill Chenevert

TUBE: Up until the present Gossip Girl has yielded little truly gay content for its huge queer audience (that is, beyond the feisty sass those Upper East Side vixens dish out regularly). But rumor has it that soon -- perhaps this Monday, April 29 -- we will be thrown a bone with a closet departure from a male character. Could it be the dashing Brooklyn boyfriend played by handsome Out cover boy Penn Badgley? Or will the CW take brotherly (in-law) love to a new level with the tension hinted at in last week's episode between vile Chuck (other Out cover boy Ed Westwick) and Serena's young brother, Eric (Connor Paolo)?
