Batman TV show ‘Gotham’ to feature lesbian detective
The creators of the upcoming Gotham TV series have revealed that the show will feature a prominent lesbian character.
RENEE! OH, MY HEART.
From the article:
Victoria Cartagena, who will take on the recurring role of the detective, said: “Growing up, I rarely saw people of colour or gay people depicted in a positive light, and I know when you don’t see yourself reflected in the world around you, it does things to your self-esteem.
“I know if I had seen a character like Renee on TV when I was younger — a Latina who is smart, powerful, and strong — it would’ve encouraged me to dream bigger.
“So I know what she means to people, and if watching me means that I can help someone else feel included, than that makes me very happy.”
