If it comes out I hope it's just mentioned in passing, as for all the excellence in the show their treatment of sexuality hasn't been great so far.

Couldn't agree more. Yes, Loras is a "flower boy", the "epitome of pulchritude", blah blah. He's still a badass, at least in the books. His character somehow became whinier and more petulant, which doesn't help with Renly's likeability either. Thank God that they didn't muck up Jaime and Brienne's portrayals. :P
