Gal Gadot On Wonder Woman’s Sexuality: “She’s A Woman Who Loves People For Who They Are”

The Wonder Woman Movie doesn’t hit theatres until next year, but we’ve been buzzing about the upcoming action flick since DC debuted its trailer at San Diego Comic Con.

However, last month, our attention has been drawn once again to superheroine’s sexuality, and in particular, whether or not she has had relationships with women.

When quizzed about Wonder Woman’s sex life with her fellow female Amazons, DC comics writer Greg Rucka said that the superhero had “obviously” been in same-sex relationships.

When you start to think about giving the concept of Themyscira its due, the answer is, ‘How can they not all be in same sex relationships?’ Right? It makes no logical sense otherwise.”

Now, during an interview with Variety, Gal Gadot — who plays the Wonder Woman — was asked to respond to comments made by Rucka.

It’s not something we’ve explored. It never came to the table, but when you talk theoretically about all the women on Themyscira and how many years she was there, then what he said makes sense.”


She went on to explain how the parameters of Wonder Woman’s sexuality are not defined by gender.

In this movie she does not experience any bisexual relationships. But it’s not about that. She’s a woman who loves people for who they are. She can be bisexual. She loves people for their hearts.”

Wonder Woman Writer Confirms She Is ‘Queer’

Wonder Woman has long considered by fans to be bisexual, but when quizzed about Diana’s life with her fellow Amazons – who are all female and live on the fictional island of Themyscira – DC writer Greg Rucka said that the superhero had “obviously” been in same-sex relationships.

He told an audience at Comicosity;

When you start to think about giving the concept of Themyscira its due, the answer is, ‘How can they not all be in same sex relationships?’ Right? It makes no logical sense otherwise.

But an Amazon doesn’t look at another Amazon and say, ‘You’re gay.’ They don’t. The concept doesn’t exist. Now, are we saying Diana has been in love and had relationships with other women? The answer is obviously yes.”

Even Diana’s own mother Queen Hippolyta has often been paired with her general Philippus.


It’s supposed to be paradise. You’re supposed to be able to live happily. You’re supposed to be able — in a context where one can live happily, and part of what an individual needs for that happiness is to have a partner — to have a fulfilling, romantic and sexual relationship. And the only options are women.

But an Amazon doesn’t look at another Amazon and say, “You’re gay.” They don’t. The concept doesn’t exist”

The writer said he wanted to show Wonder Woman did not leave her home because a man somehow made his way to her land, as it may appear in previous versions of the character, but that it’s clear she had ‘several meaningful relationships on the island throughout her life’.

According to him, Diana leaves, because ‘she wants to see the world and somebody must go and do this thing. And she has resolved it must be her to make this sacrifice.

Wonder Woman is the latest superhero to come out as LGBT. In February, it was announced that Batwoman would stay true to her sexuality in an upcoming DC film.



‘Supergirl’ Gives Us A Queer Girl In Season 2 To Look Forward To.

This news is something we all need to get excited about girls.  A new TV character to crush over. Executive Producer, Ali Adler, who by the way is also out, said during TCA:

Maggie Sawyer is an amazing character from the DC Universe who is a bad ass, gay character, who we’re bringing in and she is so cool. The actress, Floriana Lima, is amazing. We’re so excited to get started with her and it’s just gonna be an amazing addition to our cast.”

This news is sure to get the lez community inspired as well. It’s great when an intriguing LGBTQ character is introduced to a series because it helps promote our community in a strong way and encourages others to realise that we are all just regular people no different than anyone else. Positive LGBTQ characters in mainstream TV programmes are an absolute must.


Another Exec from the DC universe team, Sarah Schechter, added:

What’s important for us in Supergirl is that all women in the show are really strong, I mean it’s important on all of our shows and I think you see that in all the shows, but Supergirl, it’s like, if you have a great villain, it elevates your hero. If you have a strong woman, you want to surround her with other strong women and so Maggie’s sort of suspicious. She’s grounded; she’s [sort of not] a superheroshe’s a regular real life hero.”

We’re getting the feeling she might be more than an anti-hero type character? If so, that’s just great. They’re the best kind and normally show real dilemmas between saving themselves or saving the rest of the world. Ultimately, we all have to make decisions like this sometimes.

It seems that another intriguing hook is coming into play during season two as well. In the form of a character that would be ‘exploring their sexuality’ and ‘coming out.’ Greg Berlanti, an Exec working on Supergirl hinted:

It is a significant character and we’re not being coy about it. We really want the audience to enjoy the character development, you know, and not necessarily being ahead of the storyline.”

Speculation is already flying around as to who this might be. You never know ladies it might even be a female character that has a relationship with the newbie lez, Maggie Sawyer. That would be interesting. Whatever season two has in store for us I’m sure it’s fan base will increase dramatically after this exciting news so we can all wait in anticipation until October 2nd when season two will kick off on the CW.
