Today, October 20, is wear purple for Spirit Day. It’s not only to remember those who felt suicide was the only way to deal with bullying, but to also make gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender teens know that they are not alone. It gets better. And you may not know this, but there are openly proud, gay and lesbian superheroes. I’m going to showcase some from the Marvel and DC universes. Please comment and share any other heroes (or villains) I may have missed.

Here's some other awesome gay superheroes!

😀 Cool article!

Young Avengers Wiccan and Hulkling. I know Sinestro has made some comments about men being attractive in the past, but he is a bully.
