I believe that the show "FRASIER" one of my FAV shows of all time, has had more gay actors on the show, both as regular performers, and as guest stars, than any other show.

You guys agree ?

:)

A partial list of gay actors who were regular castmembers of the show or guest stars on the show:

David Hyde-Pierce
John Mahoney
Daniel Butler
Edward Hibbert
John Glover
Nathan Lane
Victor Garber

I'm sure I missed some.

Which one played the sports guy? I think the character was "Bull" or something like that. And how about the really short guy that was on Will and Grace as Leslie? Wasn't he on Frasier, also?

If that's true, why are there so many of them?

*Over half of the LGB respondents had heard a director or fellow actor make anti-gay comments"

They should quit their jobs and boycott the industry. Even the gay on "How I Met Your Mother" would think three times about that one. A piece of chicken or a jar or spaghetti sauce, no problem.

No, Neil Patrick Harris on that show plays a STR8 womenizer REAL good. I'm sure there are some STR8 guys that hate someone 'outing' them like that tho.....too funny, but true.

You think he's being discriminated against? How about the gay on "Big Bang Theory?" Is he a victim of Hollywood discrimination too? That story is ridiculous.

Daniel Butler, who I mentioned above, played "Bulldog" Briscoe, the macho sports announcer. I've never seen "Will & Grace".

I looked him up on Google. His name is Leslie Jordan. He is 4' 11' tall. I was mistaken about him being on Frasier. I'm sure if you Google him and see his picture you will remember something you've seen him in. Very funny man.

I googled his image and saw about 20 of them. I have no idea who he is.
