Gay Chik!- LGBT Superheroes

Comics have taught me a lot over the years and one of the most important to me is tolerance and acceptance of everything different or what some would deem strange. God made all men equal and judge not lest you be judged this group is a tribute to homosexuals/Transexuals/Bi-sexuals/ cross dressers and their portrayal in comic books.

Thanks for teaching me tolerance....

List items

  • a regular dude trapped in a woman's body, and still likes females. Though he had a drunken one-night stand with a dude too.

  • initially a dude...in the form of an Arabian-looking man called Paragon. when she had the realization she was meant to "mate" with adam worlock she went into a cocoon and became a girl to solve the .....incompatibility problem.....

  • Not many things in this world can bring out my emotions but while reading GL back in the day my heart reached out to young Mr. Berg after he was beaten into a-comma by homophobic bigots. Young mr berg has no special skills but is an example of how one can rise above it all.

  • has the power to mesmerize, only works on women and hes gay................... bummer

  • To me Tara was even more of an icon than willow, she was not a stereotype in any way. She was beautiful yes but she was not some skinny big chest either she was voluptuous and man her death was a powerful piece of cinematic triumph that ill remember till I'm old and gray.

  • enough suggestiveness and his flamboyant appearance =a possibly gay yet never confirmed character.

  • bi agent lady who shagged allison mann

  • The first lesbian i had seen in a comic book, sure most people cant stand her but that has more to with love of the original quasar than anything else.Having saved the universe she is one powerful chick as well.

  • Destiny has had relations with men but we all pretty much know her soul mate is mystique despite that mystique was often in man form.......oh the complications of love!

  • bisexual sorceress

  • Transsexual damsel in distress

  • lesbian lover of agent 355

  • I love Wiccan, not because of his orientation but because he's the child of my favorite heroin Wanda Maximoff, wiccan was a star overnight with his stint in Young avengers and is a very recognizable gay icon.

  • rawhide kid...no seriously there's a gay character named rawhidekid! lol

  • When joss made her realize she was gay, i went along for the ride and learned the beauty of love does not mean just man and woman.

  • Wiccan's prince charming...literally! as the child of the late captain marvel and a skrull princess hulking is indeed born to be a hero and a leader among men.

  • Grace oh my sweet grace. Grace is the road not taken by many writers. She is un-apologetically a bisexual promiscuous girl. Now to me that takes balls! (pun intended) All Hail Grace Choi of the outsiders!

  • Clearly Bi, having slept with Wolfsbane and lip locked with Shatterstar during his run on X-factor. Rictor is bringing sexy back indeed!

  • Mystique could technically be called the first lesbian but marvel tip toed around it so much she just appears to be bi sexual with more a taste for men than anything else, nonetheless Destiny was her soul mate so she makes the list!

  • Dark wolverine! This Machiavellian man loves playing around sexually with people.....he's a bisexual dude who has shagged boys and girls for his own gain, flirted with Bullseye, Venom and Moonstone...lol...I just love his personality really!

  • Hal jordan's bisexual fling! oooh juicy indeed, ms pearlman has had relations with the very famous Hal Jordan and the lesser known icemaiden. For a time she wielded the ergano power.

  • .....hmmm...a super flat 2 dimensional dude......who likes dude.......cant see how a relationship would work out but hey! dont knock it till you try i always say lol

  • Emma frost's gay brother. Apparently he has great taste in men as his sister Adrienne called his last bf a "hot tamale" huba huba!

  • Marvel claimed he was them being more "open" to gay characters.....Freedom Ring however has his finger sliced off and then killed with 28 spikes impaling him, including one through the groin and protruding from his anus. yah!

  • Longtime villain in the DC Universe, dressed, laughably, as a musketeer with a feathered dart, snuff, and handkerchief as his weapons. Mostly forgotten, reappears in Justice League #3, vol 3, as living on skid row and trading information for cash

  • Gay hero of DC’s Global Guardians team.

  • This one is really complicated, which is why I love it. Xavin is a shapeshifting warrior alien, arranged to be married to Karolina, another alien, for political peace. But oops, Karolina is a lesbian. No, worries, Xavin changes sex when he's 'with' her. After a shaky start the pair seem to fall in love, but all concepts of gender and sexuality are thrown out the window - it's the definition of 'queer'.

  • bi sexual vixen

  • Black lightning's daughter who also happened to be dating Grace Choi, you lucky girl!

  • Rose was Allison Mann's gay lover

What about Hulking, Xavin and Wiccan?
 
And are Xena, Gabrielle and Nico Minoru really neccesary?
 
I know Nico had kissed a girl, but aren't Xena and Gabriellen just very good friends?

@Love: Whats the question concerning "Hulking, Xavin and Wiccan"?
 
Xena and Gabrielle have been portrayed as close friends....yeah! They had multiple smooches and they are soul mates...hell i remember Xena bring her back from a "snow white" induced coma where only a kiss of true love could break.....guess who did the kissing?
 
the list could go on and on about why Xena is here and even why she's rated so high ;)

thank you for showing me there are comic-book-reading-people out there who can list more than three - or even know there are - homosexual characters.
 
I guess you missed the Pied Piper from the Flash Rogues. I'm  sure he would like to make the list longer ;-)

I love this list, is fantastic. I think gay characters deserve bigger spaces and more stories in comics BTW I think that Superman and Superboy are HOTTEST men in the universe

Its nice to see someone remembers my favorite gay character Victoria Montesi...her book got cancelled before they really got a chance to delve into her being a lez...thanks for remembering her :)
 
And just in general that there is enough gay characters to constitute a list is amazing...it really showed how far we've come that gays are so widely published in comics (which used to have such strict guidelines to what it could and could not publish)

This is a really great thing you did here with the list. In my personal opinion as a gay woman  there should be more gays in comics and shown more often.

Wow! You've updated a lot since I last peeked at the list!  
 
One quick correction, though. Under Michael Smith, you have the note "Silhoutte's boyfriend/lover". I think that should be "Enigma's boyfriend/lover"? 
 
Awesome list!

I agree, Nico Minoru does only like guys....She constantly denied Karolina's affection and has only shared intimate moments with men

Ry, my dude, i'm still on the fence about that Xena & Gabrielle one. i'm pretty sure they both had heterosexual relations throughout the length of the show... 
 
in fact the Xena spinoff was based on the fact that Hercules nailed her.
i'm just sayin...

they were not hetero I know that much....
