With June being LGBTQ Pride, I couldn't think of a better time to do a Roll Call celebrating exceptional LGBTQ characters in comics.

While there have been a number of LGBTQ characters, most of them at best have been relegated to minor characters and at worst deplorable homophobic queer minstrel shows.
And don't get it conflated.

Visibility is not progress.

If it were then the Rawhide Kid and Northstar would be progressive trailblazing characters.

 So no, this isn't just my list of queer comic characters.

This is a salute to the elite characters who have provided me with a more than a few OH HELL YEAH! moments.
A list of characters and made me proud to be a comic book geek and an LGBTQ.

Also, if you haven't already, feel free to check out my recent post on No_Scans discussing Queer Tropes to better understand where I'm coming from on this.

That being said: ROLL CALL!!!!!!!



Jack Harkness

Ianto Jones

The Question (Renee Montoya)


Black Cat




Rictor & Shatterstar 




And by the by: The Greeks/Romans/Spartans were like TOTALLY GAY!!!!! (nsfw)

Victoria Hand

Richie Foley/Gear

Dani Baptiste

Tim Gunn

He's awesome and must therefore be included.

Catwoman (Holly Robinson)

Lafayette Reynolds

Scandal Savage


Karolina Dean


HE"S GAY HONEY!!!! Stop trying to recruit. Straight people: Always trying to push their heterosexual agenda on us God-fearing gays. ;D



DAYUM is my boyfriend sexy!!!!

Go ahead. It's okay to look.


I'm gonna need you to back away from my man, right the hell now.


(Ultimate) Colossus

Not sure if the live-action movie version featured 616 Colossus or Ultimate Colossus.

It really doesn't matter because you're a fool if you think I"m about to pass up a chance to partake in some Grade-A beefcake like one Daniel Cudmore.

Willow Rosenberg

Tara MaClay

John Constantine


The Midnighter

Apollo & The Midnighter

Now, I'm willing to bet there are some gems out there that myself and others may not be aware of and/or should (re)consider checking out.

So if you have any recommendations of awesome exceptional prominent LGBTQ characters in comics then by all means, sharing is caring. Please post them away in the comments.

Actually the New Mutants broke it first In fact, it wasn't until the team of Karma, Danielle, Wolfsbane, Magik, Sunspot, and Cannonball appeared that I first saw someone state that rule in writing as an objection to that team.
