Having a token gay character just to show how politically correct the show is really does both the show and audience a disservice. If it's going to be done, it shouldn't be made a big deal of and certainly shouldn't be cliche or stereotypical. Heck I wouldn't even reveal it until at least half way through the first or second season.
Exactly how it should be done.

And I guess single dad could be a character flaw for Sisko being he was boneheaded enough to go up against a Borg Cube with his wife and son below decks.
That's true for any ship with families onboard, they should never be used for frontline combat.
