I voted midnighter
Catman is gay ? i didn't know that... and i even read 15 issues or so of the secret six... xD
We'd been talking about making a thread for LGBT DC characters so long in the LGBTQIA thread it's so awesome that it actually exists now
I voted for Catwoman, because I've always loved her. But much love to everyone listed (and not listed) in the poll too ^_^
"Tina.......bring me the axe."- Joan Crawford, Mommie Dearest
"You can't go into space because the machine already got blown up by Jake cocka doodie Busey!" - Stewie Wilkes
"I am many things, stupid is not one of them!" - Olivia Pope
"Fifty black people get their *** beat by place everyday but the whole world gotta stop for one little whitey down the hole" - Brenda, Scary Movie 3
They're not listed, so I will say Grace Choi, Josiah Power, and Lord Fanny from the Invisibles. Also liked Midnighter & Apollo before the New 52; same with John Constantine. Oh, and Maggie Sawyer and Renee Montoya.
Midnighter is my favorite right now (because of the awesome ongoing), but I like many of them Batwoman is my favorite female, but I also love Catwoman, Catman, Ivy, Renee... Bunker also has potential, he just need to be featured in better runs.
A ton of great characters here. As for my favorite, I went with Midnighter. I love his current book and have been a fan since The Authority premiered. He's one of my favorite characters all together.
Dropped in to vote for Catman.
While new S6 isnt as good as the previous version, he's still a great character Gail has really made something of.
I will raise my throne above the Stars of God
Rebis was one of my favorite DC characters in general, but would s/he not qualify because his/her being a hermaphrodite was something that was facilitated by the Negative entity?
We, real world, can't know how performative or not gender is, or how concrete sex is. So, I figure in comics, in entertainment, the field should be wide open, too. It's all in how you open it, for me, rather than "does it really count." I mean, all those stories about robots rebelling against programming to have emotions and give a damn count, right? (Can we even right other kinds of robot stories? We don't ever seem to.) If an android can cry, then Rebis has got to live as hermaphroditic, either in the public sphere, or privately, at home and alone with their self.
(Tangent to this, Giffen gets grief from some circles, for his use of homosexuality, gender, and paraphilia in his works, but I think he's generally very good in his points and, honestly, solid in his executions. He knows when he's being gauche. He knows how to float between satire and the tragic possibility that the same scene, the same stuff could also be "reality.")
I hear that Constantine's series is pretty LGBT friendly, actually showing his bisexual side. Does anyone know which issues show this?
It's a still little weird that Constantine is gay, I can't really explain it without offending. Been meaning to check out Constantine: The Hellblazer because the art looks beautiful.
"You don't have to like me. But you will respect me."
John's one of those guys that, even if his writers and artists hadn't pinged him as bi ages ago, I'd have sort of fan-sorted him there, anyway. But, he does have fans who are still pretty adamant that he's not, or if he is, it's by-action-only, and part of a scheme.
