The 'Harley Quinn' Animated Series Revealed Another Queer Character!

The more LGBTQ+ rep in animated shows, the better!

With so many beloved LGBTQ+ shows ending (or being canceled) this year, we've been trying desperately to find new series to help fill the queer TV void in our lives—and it looks like DC Universe's Harley Quinn is here to help fill that void.

We already knew the animated story of DC Comics' beloved bisexual antihero was going to give us some major Harley & Poison Ivy vibes in its recently-released second season, but apparently the show is getting ever queerer, having recently confirmed that another character named Clayface is a part of the LGBTQ+ community.

According to Pink News, in last Friday's episode entitled "Riddle U," it was revealed that Clayface, one of Harley's shapeshifting associates (played by Alan Tudyk) has romantic feelings for a man named Chad. Although he uses a female form when he interacts with Chad, he admits that he still has feelings for him, even when he changes back to his original shape.

The revelation had queer fans of the show sharing their thoughts on Twitter. 

While it's not clear what identity within the LGBTQ+ community Clayface most closely uses, it's nice to see shows explore sexuality and gender identity with their characters in ways that don't feel dumb or insensitive. And we're here for Harley Quinn!

Season 2 of Harley Quinn is currently streaming on DC Universe, with new episodes dropping every Friday!
