Chris Colfer & Darren Criss Cover 'Entertainment Weekly'
The Glee stars are featured in a special report about gay teens on TV.
“I think young gay people look at [Kurt and Blaine] both as role models,” Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy said, “and it means something to see their lives perhaps for the first time reflected on screen.”
“When we made the announcement that Kurt was getting a boyfriend, people went bats – - -, they were so excited,” Chris shared. “And then you add Darren, who is incredibly talented, and people are just jumping up and down.”
“It’s become less and less about the obvious frame of it, the young teen gay couple on the popular network show,” Darren said. “It’s more about just a favorite character having a love interest, which is awesome.”
