On last night’s episode of Ugly Betty, Justin took one big gay step out of the closet and finally kissed a boy! It’s been a long journey for the flamboyant teen and feels fitting now that Betty is sadly coming to an end.

The scene in question was handled awfully well. I love the awkward shoving between Justin and his pal. It’s one of those moments where you can tell they both wanted to connect with each other but just aren’t sure exactly how. I also have to give props to creator Silvio Horta and the producers for putting something so brave and progressive on network television. I can’t think of another series that has tackled coming out with someone so young. It’s an important and delicate issue that should be addressed more often.

What did you think of Justin’s kiss? Are you as impressed with Ugly Betty?
