My condolences. But didn't Billy Crystal (Soap ) and Tony Randall (
Love, Sidney ) predate him by several years apiece as gay character pioneers? Not to diminish his accomplishment, but they weren't exactly swishy caricatures either.

Annie did say "on(e) of the first."

Trivia: the oldest brother on Brothers was played by Brandon Maggart, Fiona Apple's father.
