Lesbian Kiss In Heroes

Heroes has been a favorite of mine since it started. Great story, imaginative plot and interesting characters.
But no lesbian story or so I thought
And then there was Claire and Gretchen

The lesbian kiss was so topical we were all talking about it for ages before it aired

And when it did complaints here

A clip of the lesbian kiss in Heroes

I don't think anyone saw a lesbian storyline looming for Claire. Appparently, the idea of a lesbian story was Hayden Panettiere's, the lady who acts Claire

Way to go Hayden!
