Alex Newell made queer history when the openly gay actor took on the role of transgender teen Wade “Unique” Adams for a two-part episode during Glee's third season. The character was so loved by fans that Unique returned as a series regular for the show’s fourth season. During that season, Unique became an incredible voice on the New Directions choir. Ritchson has slayed both in character and out: the young actor flawlessly fired back at Bill O' Reilly's transphobic comments about the show during the actor's interview with Fusion magazine. Shortly after, Ritchson starred in the gay drama The Geography Club. Follow PRIDE for updates on the glamorous young star!
