The LGBT Parents of Prime Time

There were plenty of LGBT parents this season, including the gay dads on The New Normal and Modern Family, and the lesbian moms on Grey’s Anatomy. But what’s more interesting is finding out the characters we already love just happen to have LGBT parents. Here are some of our favorite recent outings.



Dr. Cooper's moms on Nurse Jackie
In TV casting wet dreams, Nurse Jackie's Dr. Fitch "Coop" Cooper, a smarmy Ivy League–educated physician played by the ever irresistible Peter Facinelli, has two moms — who've been portrayed by three awesome actresses. In season 1, Blythe Danner and Swoosie Kurtz were his lesbian moms; in season 3, longtime LGBT activist Judith Light took Danner's role. So, yeah, Coop has three hot middle-aged moms.
