Cast members of Glee have defended the all singing all dancing show over the claims of having a gay agenda insisting this isn’t the case but a show that is trying to break stereotypes.

Actor Harry Shum, who plays Mike Chang, attended the Joy Behar show on Wednesday with his co-star Ashley Fink, who plays Lauren Zizes where the stars rejected critiscism that the shows creators where creating a gay agenda with their storylines.

When asked by Behar whether the stars believed the show did have a gay agenda, Shum replied: ""I don't think so…What this show is doing is breaking those stereotypes ... especially with gay relationships and with Asian Americans for the American audience to see in a different way and I think that's great."



In the past have Conservative groups have accused the popular show choir programme for "glamorising homosexual behaviour."

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation's (GLAAD) latest report in May stated: "This past year saw Glee's LGBT cast grow exponentially as well, starting with gay teen Kurt getting a highly publicized new boyfriend named Blaine. What's more, Santana came to realize her true feelings for best friend (and previous makeout partner) Brittany and began to privately identify as a lesbian. It was also revealed that Kurt's longtime tormentor Karofsky was concealing the fact that he is gay, meaning Glee now features a total of five regular and recurring LGBT characters, more than any other show on the broadcast networks."
