Must-See LGBT TV 9/6-9/12: British Baking and The Awesomes return

Grab the remote, set your DVR or queue up your streaming service of choice! GLAAD is bringing you the highlights in LGBT on TV this week.

Airing now on PBS stations around the country is the second season The Great British Baking Show, which pits a group of amateur home bakers against one another in weekly challenges to impress the judges and stay in the competition.  As unassuming as that premise may be, the show has many ardent fans and it's a massive hit back home in the UK where it's known as The Great British Bake Off.  This season is actually the UK show's fourth season, which featured gay baker Glenn, Ruby (who came out after the season had aired), and regular cohost Sue Perkins, who also created the coming-out comedy Heading Out.  Check your local listings for times, and watch a preview of the season below.

Season 3 of the animated Hulu series The Awesomes premieres on Tuesday, September 8, and will once again feature gay super hero Zip "Frantic" Danger, who can move at super-speed and is voiced by Saturday Night Live's Taran Killam.  

The new MTV docu-series Todrick premiered last week, and follows out YouTube star Todrick Hall and his crew as they create weekly productions and try to make it in Hollywood their own way. This week Todrick comes out to his younger brother Shay, which you can see in the clip below.
