Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC
Robert Greenblatt, NBC’ s new chairman and president of programming, might not think there is anything remarkable about his ascendancy to the top of the Peacock network, but then again he’s pretty modest about all of his achievements. However, given that Greenblatt is the first out gay man to head a broadcast network, AfterElton.com is inclined to disagree with him rather emphatically. In fact, we're more than happy to say we think his new position is an important step for Glbt visibility.
Greenblatt’s latest promotion is just another in a long list of achievements including, after this Saturday, the Stephen F. Kolzak Award, which GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) will bestow on Greenblatt for his contributions toward eliminating homophobia. (The award is named after the successful Los Angeles casting director who worked to fight AIDS-phobia and homophobia in Hollywood.)

Lets face it, as television viewers we grow attached to the gay characters that resonate with us on the small screen, and with the actors that bring life to these roles. We also find ourselves growing fond of out-and-proud actors that have opted to play it straight thats why its called acting, people and vice versa.
So when their shows are cancelled or taken off the air before they wear out their welcome (whatever, I still miss Sex and the City on Sunday nights, ok?), it can be a little bit difficult to see them slide into other TV roles easier than Lindsay Lohan checking into another rehab (Im rootin for you, girl).
Alas, sometimes that isnt always the case, which might have you asking yourself, Where are they now? In some cases for these actors, it could be taken as a query of, Where did they disappear to?
But for curiosity's (and manner's) sake, »
