The GLAAD Wrap: More True Blood, a Peak at Torchwood, and Bryan Safi Takes on the Housewives

Every week, The GLAAD Wrap brings you LGBT-related entertainment news highlights, fresh stuff to watch out for, and fun diversions to help you kick off the weekend.

1) Last week we ended the column with a first look at the new season of HBO's True Blood, so why not kick things off with another new trailer for one of the most inclusive shows on TV?  This one provides a better look at the witches' coven LaFayette and Jesus join, and a better look at new regular character Marnie, a witch played by out actress Fiona Shaw.

2) Miracle Day is coming.  The new season of Torchwood is set to premiere this summer on Starz.  No sight yet of any Captain Jack conquests, but we know they're coming.  Meanwhile, openly gay actor John Barrowman is saying of  Jack that "the one thing that I'm exceptionally proud of, and that I know Russell [T. Davis] is, we've got a bisexual hero, or an omni-sexual hero, played by an openly gay man. And that may be tooting my own horn a bit, but it's a big first in our industry, and I'm really proud to be part of that."  R.I.P. Ianto.

The announcement set of a flurry of online debating, but to quote Dragon Age writer David Gaiter, "the person who says that the only way to please them is to restrict options for others is, if you ask me, the one who deserves it least."
