I Now Pronounce You Kevin and Scotty

Television history will be made tomorrow night on ABC's Brothers and Sisters: for the first time, two regular gay characters on American primetime network TV will get hitched (or as much as they can in California, where the series is set).

In last week's penultimate episode, Kevin Walker (played by Matthew Rhys) proposed to his boyfriend Scotty Wandell (Luke MacFarlane), and their wedding ceremony will serve as the crux of the second season finale. Also, another gay-themed storyline, involving the closeted uncle Saul (Ron Rifkin), will be just one of the many other family secrets touched on, so be sure to have the tissues handy.

In recognition of the landmark occasion, GLAAD has compiled a comprehensive media resource on "marriage, civil unions and domestic partnerships for gay couples".
