I know Batman and Robin aren't gay, but...

"Isn't it good for gay kids to have a role model like the Dark Knight? And the element of causality is worth keeping in mind: Batman didn't make readers gay; gayness made Batman attractive to readers."

That's a pretty good article.
And yes, they'd make a great role model for gay kids, although I suspect Wonder Woman might be a better one, and not just because of the obvious lesbian overtones.
