Demi Lovato Is Excited To Play A Lesbian On TV

Demi Lovato's first Fox show, The X-Factor, is readying its highly anticipated season premiere, but it's her other upcoming Fox show appearance that has everyone talking. Demi is set to play Dani on Glee, a character who will have a romantic relationship with Santana on the show. Other actresses may not have taken on the role with as much gusto as Demi, who gushes to Access Hollywood about her excitement to play a lesbian on TV. 

"I get to play a lesbian on the show and that’s something that I feel like hasn’t really been brought to primetime with, you know, as a young actress,” Demi said. “And I think it represents where our society is today. It’s becoming the norm and I’m really glad that I get to represent that—how far we’ve come. You know, 15 years ago you wouldn’t have seen that on TV, but now people are becoming more comfortable with it and I’m glad that I get to represent that, and also, just hopefully inspire people with my character to love who they are and accept who they are and not give a crap what other people think.”

Amazing support, for sure, but do you think Demi's breaking new ground by playing lesbian on primetime TV?
