Caity Lotz Biography
After being demonised or erased entirely over the span of decades, queer stories are now finally being told on TV with the kind of nuance usually reserved for their heterosexual counterparts. We've rounded up eight queer heroes who have recently kicked all kinds of ass on the small screen and helped inspire change for a better future. Sara Lance started out as a secondary character on Arrow and was defined mostly by her relationship with Oliver Queen, but over the years, the bisexual hero has stepped to the fore of the Arrowverse, leading the Legends of Tomorrow on their quest to save time. Rather than turn her sexuality into a huge plotline, the writers have incorporated Sara's love of both men and women into her story without fanfare, making her a fan favourite in the process. Before the BBC finally got round to casting a female star in the role of Doctor Who, queer representation arrived in the form of Bill Potts, a black lesbian who travelled alongside the titular hero as his companion.
