    I gotta say Christian Frost has definitely been my favorite supporting queer character ever since he was brought back from limbo.

    I think Fuse could be bi as he has made jokes about dating Hawkeye (Clint) and he’s called Noh-Varr ‘hot as hell’

    Fuse's bisexuality was more or less confirmed in the final issue of WCA

    Yes, it was.

    Its a shame that was the final issue of the series. The Noh-Varr/Fuse/Kate triangle would have been really interesting to explore.

    What’s the consensus on Kate Bishop being bi?

    I don't think we've ever seen any evidence of it, really. America Chavez made an offhand joke about it at the end of YOUNG AVENGERS vol.2, but that was just a joke rather than a serious comment. I don't think we've ever actually seen any indication of her being romantically or sexually interested in another woman.

    I think Kate being the straight girl who's always surrounded by queer people has kind of become an ongoing joke at this point and a part of her appeal, which is why I don't think Marvel will really out her as a part of the community itself. And honestly? I don't mind, 'cause I think it's a fun dynamic. I wouldn't oppose her coming out, but I don't think it's problematic for her to not be queer or anything like that, because books featuring her tend to always have queer characters in it, so it's not like we're being denied representation. I also feel like they would only ever make her come out if they really want to make AmeriKate canon, but much like with Clint, I like that Kate can have a strong friendship that doesn't turn into romance. Plus, I really like America/Ramone, and I hope Marvel let them make it as a couple.

    Agreed on all points.

    And yeah, Kate really does tend to have a lot of LGBT people in her life. Billy, America and Teddy are among her closest friends. Her first solo adventures in LA had the gay couple Marcus & Finch as her friends, and then her solo ongoing gave her Ramone and Mikka. Plus there was Aimee in the Fraction run who was technically more one of Clint's supporting characters but Kate knew her too. Even a standalone solo story in YEAR OF MARVELS: THE UNCANNY gave Kate a new lesbian friend/ally Kayla Kurasawa as one of the other young women who had been kidnapped by a vampire. Kate Bishop may be the Marvel Universe's biggest "fag hag" (pardon the potentially offensive term).

    Same. I love her MORE for being this heterosexual woman who is continually surrounded by and fostering deep friendships with queer heroes -- and particularly queer women of color -- and it NOT complicating their dynamic. I think its very important to showcase these relationships and friendships between women in general that aren't connected via romantic thread with a male counterpart.
    Anole and Rockslide is another example that springs to mind of a straight/gay pairing that is so terrific and well done. I love that Rockslide is this macho beast bro and he and Anole have become so tight.

    The Month In Gay:

    Comics have started to trickle out again this month, some physically and some digitally. Here's the LGBT appearances I am aware of from May's comics. Without being able to physically browse in my local comic shop, it is a bit harder for me to keep track of what comics have all come out with LGBT appearances, so please, let me know if I miss anything....

    Marauders #10 - Iceman and Christian Frost are both involved in this issue, although neither of them are overly prominent. We also have a moment with Emma and the Cuckoos telepathically reprogramming bigots to not only stop hating mutants but also any oppressed minority, and she explicitly includes gay and trans people in the list.

    Ravencroft #4 - D-Man appears briefly in this issue.

    And...I think that's it. Slim pickings, but since only a handful of books came out this month that's to be expected.

    With this month being Pride, and an abundance of free time, I wanted to read some RickStar stories, but don’t really know where to start. I haven’t read many X-men comics. I’ve got a Marvel Unlimited subscription, and looking at the list of comics for the characters goes back to the 80s and 90s. Any suggestions where to start for the “modern” stories?

    Like Silvermoth said, most of their story as a couple is really on PAD's X-Factor vol. 3. Rictor is a member of the team from the first issue but Shatterstar only first appears in issue #45 IIRC. You'd have to read from the first issue to understand how and why though, if you're interested in that. After that, they appear together again in the recent Shatterstar mini, with some individual appearances in other series in between.

    I haven't read much from the 90's X-Force era which was before they came out though, so maybe someone else could help out in that area
