Caped crusaders are out and proud this year at Comic-Con International. Even Superman and Batman at the Prism Comics booth wear snug Underoos, capes and chef’s aprons — but not much else — as they entertain passersby. T-shirts featuring “Glamazonia: The Uncanny Super-Tranny,” “Wuvable Oaf,” a hairy-chested wrestler-type in pink shorts. and other less-famous characters line the walls of Prism’s booth — the unofficial hub of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) community at this week’s convention.
“It feels revolutionary,” says Scott Covert, decked out as Batman’s sidekick, Robin, at one of the convention’s many panels about gay culture and the comic book world. He flips the lip of his cape as he adds, “There’s more tolerance this year.”
It looks like Obama’s open support for gay marriages has eased out things for the LGBT community to a great extent. Among many others, Queen Latifah, real name Dana Owens, has also declared her self a lesbian.
After years of speculation about the singer, actress and songwriter, Queen Latifah’s sexual orientation, she has finally stepped out of the closet declaring gays as “her people” at the Gay Pride Parade held on Saturday.
