Yeah, fact is...err...

Damn it!

What gay character was on Angel?
There wasn't one which was kinda my point.
Lorne was a demon and owner of a night club but it was never proven what his sexuality was one way or another. His flamboyance fit the type of job he was in much like many big city club owners who aren't gay.
Another good point and I would like to add Lorne was rather awesome as well. He shot Linsey!
It was also first believed Wesley (when he was on Buffy) acted gay, same for Giles due to their manerisims but they weren't, were they?
No, they were English on an American show.
Joss did a good job showing ones mannerisms doesn't define ones sexuality. It is we the viewing audience that holds onto such stereotypes.
I still feel it was using those stereotypes that they implied Andrews sexuality which I felt was wrong.
