While in the real world, LGBTQ+ persons are just as varied in personality and traits as straight/cisgender ones, it has suited television writers to use common stereotypes for their gay characters in lieu of actually making them "real people". To be fair, gay TV characters in general have become more realistic since the 1990s. But the stereotypes still remain the favorite tool of [[BadWritingIndex the hack writer]] - or the comedy auteur looking to parody or [[BlackComedy shock]].

It's been noted, by the way, that in contrast to gay characters and their stereotypes, ''bisexual'' characters are [[NoBisexuals virtually unknown]] on TV. Writers don't seem to know how to portray them, although when they do appear they tend to be TheCasanova or LookingForLoveInAllTheWrongPlaces, [[DepravedBisexual at best]]. It's also not uncommon for their same-sex attraction to only be mentioned, while their onscreen love interests are always the opposite sex.
