I mean, we might have suspected, but who really knew she went that way.
Oh…you haven’t heard?
Buffy the Vampire Slayer is gay.
Yup, in the new issue of the Buffy comic, Wolves at the Gate, Part One, the slayer is seen in bed with protégé Satsu.
"Do me a favor," Buffy tells her lover. "Don't mention this to anyone."
"I know you didn't just ... turn gay all of a sudden," says Satsu.
In stores this week, the comic finally delivers on the lesbian-friendly ethos of the ‘90s TV show, “which was considered groundbreaking for being one of the first network programs to feature a lesbian lead back in 2000, although it wasn't until the show moved from the WB to UPN that Willow (Alyson Hannigan) and Tara's (Amber Benson) relationship was portrayed more physically than metaphorically.”
"I guess the stakes are different in that we have more freedom in comics," said Wolves writer Drew Goddard, who was a writer for TV’s Buffy and penned Cloverfield. "Even though we've still got a ways to go, we've made tremendous progress with regard to portrayals of human sexuality in pop culture over the last 10 years or so. So the stage just feels different now. I'm sure people can argue that Willow/Tara broke a lot of ground in that regard, but it's not like we go into these things saying, 'How can we make a grand political statement here?' We just try to do what feels right for the characters. The rest takes care of itself."
One word: HOT!!!
