"Loki" Episode 3 Confirms Loki is Bisexual and the First LGBTQ+ Marvel Cinematic Universe Character

Marvel just took a huge step in LGBTQ+ representation thanks to a small moment in the latest episode of Loki.

In a conversation between Loki and Sylvie, the God of Mischief revealed that he was with a "bit of both" when asked if had previously been with princesses or princes during his time in Asgard.

This makes Loki the first official out and confirmed LGBTQ+ main character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Director and executive producer Kate Herron confirmed the news on Twitter, writing that having that conversation in the script meant a lot to her.

"From the moment I joined @LokiOfficial it was very important to me, and my goal, to acknowledge Loki was bisexual. It is a part of who he is and who I am too. I know this is a small step but I’m happy, and heart is so full, to say that this is now Canon in #mcu #Loki" she said.

Before the show's release, fans were also excited to see Loki's sex listed as fluid in a case file from the TVA during one of the show's trailers.

The character is known for being a shapeshifter and taking on the look of almost anyone he wants, so it would make sense for him to be classified as such. However, it wasn't 100 percent confirmed that Loki is genderfluid until the brand new series was released.

Hopefully, this is just the beginning for the ever-growing MCU. With other characters joining in on the fun in upcoming movies and shows, more representation is slowly coming to the universe and it's about time.
