CW’s “Batwoman” mid-season premiere episode, dubbed “How Queer Everything Is Today!”, is all about Kate Kane coming out to Gotham City about her sexual orientation.
Kane’s choice to share more of her identity could, of course, jeopardize her overall secret identity as Batwoman. But it was after hearing another character’s struggles with coming out to her parents, that Kane decided it was more important to come out.
Ruby Rose’s character decided to publish her coming out in CatCO magazine in an article that was written by Kara Danvers, aka Supergirl.
“Batwoman” is the first superhero series with a character that is openly part of the LGBTQ community.
“Batwoman” is written and produced by Caroline Dries, also produced by Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns, David Nutter, and Marcos Siega (who also directs the series).
