Matchmaking for TV Teens: 8 Gay Couples We’d Like to See

Right now, Kurt Hummel and Blaine Anderson from Glee are arguably the sweetest, most talented young couple on television. Often celebrated as paving the way for gay teens on TV (don’t worry, we didn’t forget about you, Billy Douglas), the duo has defied the odds of Glee couple failure to prevail as one of its most functional long-term pairs. Indeed, other gay teen characters sometimes find similarly successful matches within their respective series, but we’ve never seen a pair never quite as Entertainment Weekly cover-worthy as Kurt and Blaine. So, we’re reprising our role as trans-series matchmaker with some LGBT high schoolers we’d like to see together. Check ’em out after the jump, and hit the comments to let us know of any other pairings you’d like to see.

Rickie Vasquez, My So-Called Life + Maxxie Oliver, Skins (UK)

If Rickie from My So-Called Life and Maxxie from Skins were to live in the same decade, country, and school district, these two drama club members would hit it off, don’t you think? Like us, Rickie would be impressed by Maxxie’s ability to tap dance and multitask like it ain’t no thing, and Maxxie would hop on in on Rickie’s spontaneous “What Is Love” dance-offs. Drama club could be the new Glee club, and we’d love it.
