I’ve watched Clark Kent drag Lois Lane through flaky, bad boyfriend hell for at least 13 full seasons of TV and five full-length feature films. These two women talk out their feelings, explain their needs and desires, and handle the dissonance like adults in 42 minutes. (GAAAAAAY.)
“Down Down Down” introduces Reagan, a bartender who neither melts under Ruby Rose’s intense smolder nor is shaken from her single-minded pursuit of asking out Kate Kane by the fact of three entire elevators plummeting to the ground in the building where she’s working a party.
It’s an excellent addition to both the cinematic Bat-universe and to The CW’s (already superqueer) superhero line-up, which is no small feat. It balances the fun and heart of Alex Danvers and Kelly Olson in National City, the cocky silliness of Sara Lance and Ava Sharpe in space-time, and the drama and grit of Anissa Pierce and Grace Choi in Freeland.
Whether we do it to explore gender and gender presentation, to embrace our flamboyance, to show off and show out, or to just feel powerful, no con is complete these days without a horde of queer cosplayers or queer characters making their way up and down the aisles and across the stages
On October 6th, Batwoman will add another first to the list: She’ll land in Gotham City in her much-anticipated series, making her the very first lesbian superhero to headline her own show. It’s been a thrilling, harrowing, often bumpy road to get here — but Batwoman always comes out on top (if you know what I mean and I think you do).
Your guide to all the shows that were smart enough to create a lesbian, bisexual, queer or trans woman character, thus inspiring within us deep wells of desire to view these programs with our very own eyeballs.
All your favorite returning queer shows, a few new ones to look out for, and finally a full Batwoman trailer.
The CW really wants you to relax about Batwoman, Tessa Thompson covers Essence, Edie and Thea on Drunk History, so many queer trailers from NYCC, Desiree Akhavan’s The Bisexual is almost here, and oh so much more.
Everything you need to know before her new TV show!
Out lesbian Ruby Rose is cast as The CW’s Batwoman, a star-studded roundtable with trans actors graces the cover of Variety, “Head Over Heels” hits Broadway, Hayley Kiyoko deserves to win all her VMAs and more!
Looks like Batwoman is going to break out of next year’s CW Arrowverse crossover with her own show!
I talked with Bennett about what it’s like being the first woman and the first openly queer woman to write a Batwoman solo title, what she hopes to bring to it, and what she hopes queer readers will get from the series.
The top ten DC and Marvel comics — just in my opinion.
I’m definitely not saying that you should read all these comics, but these are the ones that I think will be your best shots for enjoying your weekly comics haul.
Look at Kate Kane, out on a date with Renee Montoya and fighting alongside Batman on TV like it’s no big deal.
Let’s see how the year 2015 was for women in comics and what we can hope for in 2016 (I’m mainly hoping for more queer comics).
Don’t let its historical setting fool you; DC Comics Bombshells is giving us a preview of what the future can be for female characters’ roles in superhero comics.
The Batgirl creative team makes changes to fix their transphobic mistakes, Harley and Ivy are confirmed as a couple, and DC has more queer heroes than ever before!
All I want this year is more representation, better representation, the return of some of my faves and about nine other things.
A lot of Batwoman fans (and to be honest, a lot of comic fans overall) were worried when the creative team of W. Haden Blackman and J.H. Williams III left the book after DC refused to allow them to have Kate Kane (Batwoman) marry her longtime girlfriend, police detective Maggie Sawyer. Now, it looks like those fears were completely justified.
