If Modern Family can have a gay kiss, Glee's Kurt should be getting ready to smooch with his TV boyfriend, too.

While Chris Colfer still isn't allowed to reveal who be playing his character's beau, but...

Whoever it is, Colfer will be happy to share an onscreen smooch.

"I'm fine with it," he told me at the Emmys. "I don't know how middle America would feel about it, [but] if it's done in a tasteful way…I want it to be very cute and have people go, 'Aww!'"

The question still remains if new transfer student Sam (played by Chord Overstreet) will eventually become Kurt's beau. "I can't say anything without getting in trouble these days," Colfer said. "We're going to be the power couple of the school. We better be."

Mike O'Malley, who plays Kurt's dad, says he's "looking forward to see how they tackle" the romance. Asked what kind of guy he'd like to see Kurt with, O'Malley smiled, "Whoever makes him happy and treats him with respect."

However, would Kurt and his guy be the first gay kiss on the show? Show co-creator Ryan Murphy has reportedly said Santana (Naya Rivera) and Brittany (Heather Morris) will lock lips in the new season.
