ABC Family has quickly become one of the best networks on television for finding a variety of Lgbt characters in shows like massive hit Pretty Little Liars, where gay teen Emily (Shay Mitchell) is front and center.
We knew the network’s latest entry The Fosters, from out creators Peter Paige and Bradley Bredeweg, was breaking new ground when it premiered last summer and featured a household headed by a lesbian couple, played by Teri Polo and Sherri Saum. But since coming back for the second half of its first season, the series has added a trans teen to the mix.
In the current storyline, troubled teen Callie (Maia Mitchell) has been placed in group home (run by Rosie O’Donnell). There she befriends Cole, a trans boy with his own set of problems and issues.

In Monday's (Jan. 20) episode of "The Fosters," Rosie O'Donnell makes her first appearance as the leader of a group home where Callie (Maia Mitchell) winds up. O'Donnell's guest role came about simply because she's a huge fan of the show, but she fits in seamlessly.
"It was amazing," Mitchell tells Zap2it of O'Donnell's guest turn. "She's so cool! She's such a big personality and she definitely brought a really fresh vibe to our show."
O'Donnell's character doesn't interact much with people aside from Callie, says Cierra Ramirez. "All of that storyline is going to be so awesome. I'm really excited for those scenes -- it's completely different," she tells Zap2it during a recent visit to the show's Los Angeles set. "It's like its own pilot, almost."
Explains Mitchell, "We've essentially been working with an entirely separate cast of people. All the girls -- I don't know where they found these girls, »

"The Fosters" executive producer Peter Paige revealed at the ABC Family Winter Press Tour on Friday (Jan. 17) that we'll get to meet Callie and Jude's father sooner than you might think.

HollywoodLife.com recently spoke with star Maia Mitchell about Callie’s future with the Fosters — and, more specifically, her future with Brandon (David Lambert).
“It’s complicated, to say the least,” Maia told us. “Callie and Brandon really do love each other, but it’s not that simple. There are so many other things to consider for them. It’s not going to be easy.”
Maia also told us not to expect too much resolution right away.
