On Sunday, during the Simpson's 20th anniversary documentary special ('in 3-D on Ice") GLAAD Spokesman discussed the possible coming out of Simpsons' character Waylon Smithers -- Burns' loyal assistant and an iconically closeted gay figure.

"GLAAD counts Smithers as a gay character because the show has definitely told us that he's gay." The spokesman said. "We would love a character Smithers to progress by becoming more open about his sexual orientation in the community. You know, maybe he starts a gay employees research group down at the plant."
