Eagle-eyed readers may have noticed that there was no White Queen Wednesday this week. There will also be no new Storm Sunday for today. stormantic is a San Francisco-based blog and in our fabulous city, we take our Gay Pride seriously. What I’m trying to say is, Ken and STORM have been swept up in the amazing goings on that celebrate gay, lesbian, bisexual, transexual, queer, questioning and other identities and we just don’t possess the discipline to be inside blogging right now. We’ve got dancing and marching and partying to do! We encourage you to get together with your queer loved ones and do the same. Much love to you all!
Okay, so having Dazzler lead the way in this post was misleading. Alison Blaire does not identify as gay, but a lot of her fans do! Thanks, Dazzler, for lighting up our lives! And for some actual queerness, I give you Rictor and Shatterstar making out.
No Gay Pride X-post would be complete without Northstar, Marvel’s first out gay male character (who just happens to have pointy ears like a faerie! thanks a lot, Marvel). I’m not saying I love this character. It’s just if we’re gonna celebrate mutant boys who like boys, we gotta trot out the gay X-Men poster boy.
And here’s Anole, the newest Queer among the latest generation of X-Men. I have no opinion one way or another on this character. He’s not much more than a gay lizard boy at this point in his character lifespan.
And we close with an image of Karma
, lovely lesbian of the New Mutants. I love this girl. She’s mature, thoughtful and her power kicks ass (she can possess people). Let’s hope she finds a girlfriend that is cool with artificial limbs (Karma lost a leg in the recent X-Men: Second Coming crossover).
That’s it for now, dear readers. Ken and I will be back on track with Emma and Ororo, respectively, this coming week! Thanks for your understanding!
