As it becomes more common for teenagers to realize — and then tell others — that they are gay or lesbian, there is also a growing number of teen characters on TV programs geared toward teens going through the same thing.

Its main character was gender nonconforming, to be sure. But these are the rare breakouts that garner massive media attention or win awards.
