‘Glee’ Season 6 Spoilers: Coach Beiste returns as a man
Of course, this new “Glee” story line is controversial. However, the Fox series has always pushed the boundaries and has striven to make the gay, lesbian, and transgender community a heavy part of their story. Kurt and Blaine, Santana and Brittany, Unique, and Spencer have all be a part of the legacy, along with coach Beiste.
“Like it or not, it’s real life,” actress Dot Marie Jones said of Beiste’s transition. “I think Fox is amazing for putting this on broadcast television… Of any show on broadcast, it should be a Fox show because they are the risk takers. I don’t think even taking a risk is the right word. It’s just real.”
