Glee has a reputation for pushing the envelope on LGBT issues. Characters like Kurt Hummel brought fabulous homosexuality to American homes, and his relationship with Blaine inspired a generation of young LGBT people. The same can be said for Unique, a transgender character played by Alex Newell in the show’s third season. Newell’s performance brought attention to the difficulty trans people experience as they navigate their lives.
