|In the pilot for “Heroes,” a popular high school cheerleader confides in a male friend about her superhero-like ability. While it’s not spelled out in so many words, the male character is gay.|
In an interview, Kring says:
|“I am intrigued by a gay character front and center, and we are openly discussing it in the studio and in the writers’ room now. It doesn’t scare me at all (despite his run-in with a network executive), and it’s always been a battle with networks on that sort of thing. there’s a subversiveness that you’re forced to think about these things with. You try to come in through a side door.”|
