Unlike some of its competition, the DC's many TV and movie offering are filled to the brim with tons and tons of positive, on-screen queer representation. With heroes like Kate Kane from Batwoman, Dreamer from Supergirl, and Sarah Lance from Legends of Tomorrow (just to name a few), DC is establishing itself as an incredibly diverse and inclusive superhero universe, and now, a new addition to the company's queer family has just been confirmed!

***WARNING: Serious spoilers for Young Justice: Outsiders, Episode 20 ("Quiet Conversations") ahead!!!***

In a scene from the latest episode of DC Universe's animated superhero series Young Justice: Outsiders, main character and fan favorite Aqualad (aka Kaldur) is seen kissing another man, officially making him canonically queer!

As expected, LGBTQ+ viewers of the Young Justice fandom went absolutely crazy, in the best way! 

More queer superheroes, please!!!

New episodes of Young Justice: Outsiders drop every Tuesdays on DC Universe. Watch the trailer in the video below!
