* Brandon Wright and Dante from ''TheWire'' are both twinks, but played in slightly different ways; Brandon is more the naive and easily led type, while Dante shows signs of arrogance and a tendency to try to manipulate Omar, with his jealousy being one of the factors to drive a wedge between them.

Appearance-wise, he's stereotypically rail-thin with a boyish face and minimal facial and body hair. If white (and he usually is, where fiction is concerned), he'll be bleached-blonde with skin that's either pale or artificially tanned. He tends to buy all his clothing from Hollister, Old Navy, Abercrombie & Fitch, and the like, and will wear flip-flops in the dead of winter. [[note]]It's important to point out that the twink aesthetic and the twink persona are not the same; a person can be one without the other.[[/note]]

The etymology of the word is a little ambiguous, but it's generally agreed to refer to the snack food Twinkies, because they're [[DumbBlonde go]][[ButNotTooWhite ld]], delicious, and full of cream, but have absolutely [[TheDitz no nutritional]] [[TheIngenue value]]. Similar terms include "cub" for young [[TheBear bears]], "baby dyke" for lesbians, and "baby queer" as a more general term. This is essentially the caterpillar to the butterflies of the other gay archetypes. See {{Uke}} for the rough [[{{Yaoi}} Japanese]] equivalent. Arguably the gay SpearCounterpart to TheIngenue.

to:

* Arguably, all the gay boys from ''Series/{{Glee}}'' fit the bill given their age and being at a point of self-discovery, but Kurt Hummel from ''Series/{{Glee}}''.and Sebastian are the closest in characterization, albeit in different ways.
