Hit US show Glee has long been praised for its work with tackling issues affecting gay youths today and one of hit openly gay stars Jane Lynch has praised the shows producers for tackling the issues head on.

Resident gay character Kurt, played by Chris Colfer, is set to be joined by another on-screen gay male character that is said to possibly be his first boyfriend as the second series continues around the world.

Actress to the battle-axe Cheerio coach Sue Sylvester, Jane Lynch, spoke about the up oncoming focus on the gay teen storylines at the BAFTA Britannia Awards: "Anytime you can make kids, especially out in the far reaches, where maybe they're not embraced for having a particular sexual orientation, to give them role models, and hope [is good],"

She added on the say the power of the show and the message it gives to its young impressionable viewers is remarkable: “To see this idealised world, where people stick up for each other, and they are as strong as their weakest link. If someone's being made fun of, they rally behind, and I love that."

Viewers over the pond are well and truly into the second season of the show and are about to be introduced to the shows newest gay character Blaine, played by Darren Criss, and rumour has it that he and eccentric Kirk may begin a relationship.

With out giving to much away, openly lesbian Lynch said:"Chris has a relationship. And I don't know if it's a love relationship yet with this young man who’s in an all boys school. Because things get pretty hard for Kurt at our school. He's bullied, and his life is threatened. And so he leaves McKinley and goes to this boy's school for a while. So we'll see what happens to him there.”
