ONTD Original: 5 characters who were intended to be LGBT

5. Lexington - Gargoyles



Gargoyles is an amazing show with some great representation. The show itself is an animation masterpiece, with great voice acting, dramatic and Shakeaspearian storylines, and some of the best morally complex villains on TV.

... But you know, Disney still made it, so of course it wasn't perfect. Greg Weisman has stated that the writers only came to the decision that Lexington was gay towards the end of the series, but in a AMA on his personal website, he confirmed what everyone knew anyways: that there was no way Disney would have let Lexington be openly gay in the mid 90s.

Still, Lexington was eventually going to end up with a mate in the comics, a gargoyle from a London clan called Staghart. Staghart was to be an openly gay gargoyle that helped Lexington figure his sexuality out, and they would eventually hook up. But the comics were canceled before they got together.

There's always been a lot of talk of Disney rebooting Gargoyles. If that day ever comes, maybe they can finally make Lexington gay as he's inten... lmao just kidding I know Disney's not gonna do it.
