Yes he is gay. I love the show. My favorite character is probably Finn because he's the type of person you wouldn't expect to see in a glee club. He's bending the molds :.
Glee’s Kurt Hummel to Date Star Quarterback

I personally liked him in season one, but I feel the writers have made his character a little pretentious and annoying in the later seasons. On one hand I can appreciate the message the writers are trying to send, but on the other hand I can't help but think that he's not as inspirational as the writers make him out to be. In addition, I found season 2 of Glee to be too focused on his character while neglecting some other favorite characters. I think the writers are trying to instill gay tolerance and equality to their viewers. While I certainly agree with that, I kind of find Kurt annoying and overrated..
He is the first openly gay character introduced in the series. In the beginning of the series, Kurt is in the closet until he comes out to Mercedes Jones and eventually to his father, Burt. He establishes a crush on Finn Hudson and tries to pursue him, despite Finn being straight. He even goes as far as to set up his father with Finn's mother, Carole , just so he could be closer to him, which backfires when Finn uses a homophobic slur against him during an outburst.
When Glee ends its six-season run tonight with a special two-hour finale, its legacy will certainly be mixed. The show debuted in and became an instant phenomenon — spawning hit singles, sold-out concerts, a reality competition series and a 3-D film. It was a rare achievement, and still one of the only successful TV musicals of all time. But even the freshman season was far from flawless.
