A couple of characters on Roseanne:  Martin Mull, Morgan Fairchild (as
Sandra's lover), Mariel Hemingway (guest starred), Rosie's mom also came
out on the show...
 
Xena: Warrior Princess -- although not confirmed bi-sexual or lesbian,
the show certainly has a huge lesbian and bi-sexual following due to a
perceived (and sometimes not so subtle) homoerotic subtext  -- which the
producers admit to playing up to in several interviews
 
Mad About You:  Paul's sister
Friends: Ross' ex-wife
Melrose Place: Matt (now gone)
Ru Paul has her own show
