See, the thing I liked about Wandering Son is that it doesn't come off as having an agenda. It's neither an impassioned call to awareness, nor a trivialization of the issue. All it does is present the lives of a group of middle school kids, and it just so happens that two of them have transgender issues. There are no judgement beings called for, and really all it portrayed was a couple of kids who in the end are just like other teenagers experiencing the same hopes and fears of growing up. To me that's a very progressive mindset.

A show that kind of did what you're asking for is No.6. That was a sci fi and its two leads just happened to be gay, but their homosexuality wasn't a focus of the show at all (The show itself isn't very good though, but the LN's are probably better).
