The Week In Gay!
Hellcat #17 is the end of the series, which is sad. Kate Leth, the writer, identifies as queer, which automatically makes it relevant to this thread. Ian and Tom were adorable and remain cute together. This issue has a couple minor characters from earlier in the series - a couple of Patsy fangirls - pop up, with one of them being in love with the other, who almost certainly likes her, too. Also, there was this:
Very subtle, Kate! Clearly getting in a jab at the fact that she wasn't allowed to have Patsy be queer. Cute moment.
Ultimates #6 has very little of America, but it does have her mention she's going to be going to college, so she can learn more and be better prepared for their foe.
Hulk #5 came out, written by Mariko Tamaki, who is gay, so it's relevant to the thread, even if there's no LGBTQ+ content in this issue. (Still a great comic, though, and one well worth reading.)
Anole has a blink-and-you-miss-it cameo in X-Men Gold #2.
In X-Men Blue #2, we find out that Romeo's been ghosting Bobby, not answering calls or responding to texts. Not cool, Romeo. Also, Bunn had better not drag that shit out too long.
Great Lakes Avengers #7 has Flatman and Goodboy, you know, around. Their sexualities don't come up, but hey, at least Goodboy is terrible at quips.
"We are Shakespeare. We are Michelangelo. We are Tchaikovsky. We are Turing. We are Mercury. We are Wilde. We are Lincoln, Lorca, Leonardo da Vinci. We are Alexander the Great. We are Fredrick the Great. We are Rustin. We are Addams. We are Marsha! Marsha Marsha Marsha! We so generous, we DeGeneres. We are Ziggy Stardust hooked to the silver screen. Controversially we are Malcolm X. We are Plato. We are Aristotle. We are RuPaul, god dammit! And yes, we are Woolf."
Oh, possibly relevant to the thread's interests: B&W variant cover preview for Iceman #2 by Tana Ford.

One other thing I noticed in this week's books, OCCUPY AVENGERS #6 had a Skrull who was the wife of a human--but when 'she' reverted to natural form, she appeared to be a male Skrull.
