Look! Up on the TV! It’s a straight-appearing woman who’s high femme! It’s the human closest to Kara Zor-El of Krypton! It’s… Supergirl’s lesbian sister!
Yes, Alex Danvers, played by Chyler Leigh, revealed on Monday’s episode of Supergirl on the CW Network that her adopted sister Kara isn’t the only one with a secret identity. She came out in the episode, “Crossfire.”
Executive producer Jeffrey Kreisberg told the Hollywood Reporter their goal is to tell Alex’s story in a “respectful, educational, entertaining and thoughtful” way, surrounded by supportive family and friends.
