+ Yesterday I told you about how Velma is finally, fully, canonically gay in the new Trick or Treat, Scooby-Doo! Not just a hint of it, but the whole movie is basically a lesbian rom-com about her and the bad girl falling for each other. The news was all over the place yesterday, especially Twitter, which led Hayley Kiyoko to point out that she’s the lesbian who lesbian-ed Velma in the first place! Kiyoko played Velma in Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins and its 2010 sequel Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster. Such power! I’d like to believe my gayness is strong enough to make a character gay too! Maybe I’ll dress up like She-Hulk this Halloween and test it out!
I remember booking Velma in 2008. It was my first big role in a movie. I also remember thinking ‘I wonder if they know they hired a lesbian as Velma’ here we are, 14 years later……😂 love you all so much
