Avengers: Endgame gave us the first openly gay character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it left a lot of fans who have spent the last decade waiting to see a gay superhero join the Avengers pretty underwhelmed. Big deal. Not very momentous.
Like the other clones, Cosima is played by Tatiana Maslany. There are a host of traits that make Cosima different from the other clones, one of which is her sexuality. Cosima's relationship with her monitor, Delphine played by Evelyne Brochu tipped off Orphan Black fans to the fact that Cosima is gay.
We're living in a new golden age of queer television. As recently as the early aughts, queer content on television was few and far between. The first "passionate" kiss between two male characters on TV didn't happen until the yearon "Dawson's Creek," and even when TV shows had characters who were gay or transgender, they were seldom more than supporting characters.

H ere are some of the people to use the term loosely who exist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe : a god of thunder who can wield lightning with his magic hammer; a genetically engineered raccoon; a neurosurgeon who can levitate, manipulate time and cast spells; a man able to shrink to the size of an ant; a walking, talking tree.

Eichner kept chasing after his musical theater dreams in college, but after graduation, he fell instead into a career in comedy, first with a popular off-off-Broadway stage show that ultimately led to his signature series of Billy on the Street videos in which he yells at people in Manhattan about pop culture with celebrity guests in tow.
Some of our favorite movies and TV shows have given us unforgettable LGBT characters who achieved strides in acceptance and representation for the community. In the fish-out-of-water cult comedy series, creator and star Daniel Levy's character, David gives the perfect analogy regarding his pansexuality. But I also drink white wine.
