The show revolves around a German emigrant, Hedwig, who is the victim of a botched sex-change operation, as she embarks on her journey to find love and stardom.

SLAY!

Darren Criss had his opening night as the star of the rock musical Hedwig And The Angry Inch on Wednesday in New York, and he was fantastic!

And as you can see in the pic (above) Darren looked like perfection for the beginning of the limited 12-week engagement run, where he plays the frontman, Hedwig, of an East German rock band who assumes a female persona after a botched sex change operation and breaks down a lot of fourth walls in the play in order to share his story!

We love that she's trying to soak up some trans* culture!

Bruce Jenner has been the story of the year since he came out as transgender on Friday, and his daughter Kendall is showing her continued support through her taste in theater.

That's because the 19-year-old model was spotted at Hedwig and the Angry Inch in New York on Saturday… but she wasn't alone.

We're hearing that Kendall attended the transgendered-themed musical with her bestie Cara Delevingne and her girlfriend St. Vincent!

Move over straight characters! Television is getting gay!

In recent years, there has been an increasing amount of LGBT representation on the small screen, and we're totally loving it!

Not only were viewers keeping track of Kurt and Blaine — played by Chris Colfer and Darren Criss — on Glee, they're also watching the hot sex scenes between Connor and Oliver on How To Get Away With Murder!

And let's not forget about The Fosters on ABC Family with Stef, Lena, and their intimately endearing bedroom scenes!!

While we still have a long way to go, we love that society is embracing couples, of all ages, ethnicities, and of course, sexualities.

That's why we're taking a look at some of the hottest same-sex couple on the tube!

Ready to experience all sorts of sexiness?!

After six seasons, four Emmys, and too many covers to count, Glee is sadly coming to an end.

While these last few seasons haven't been up to par with the show's strong beginnings, the Ryan Murphy series did give us Lea Michele, Naya Rivera, Darren Criss, Chris Colfer, Amber Riley, Cory Monteith and, really, too many household names to put in one list.

So, to honor Friday night's two-hour series finale, we decided that the best way to celebrate William McKinley High's Glee Club would be to pick our Top 10 favorite musical performances from the 119 aired episodes!!!

Wanna see if your favorite made our list?
