Steven Universe creator Rebecca Sugar just gave an amazing speech when coming out as bisexual at Comic-Con in San Diego. To eventual rapturous applause, Sugar came out after a question from a fan on why Steven Universe touches on LGBT+ issues so often.
Sugar comes out, simply saying: “Well, in large part it’s based on my experience as a bisexual woman,” but then she goes on to say a whole lot more.
Discussing the importance of speaking to kids about LGBT+ issues, Sugar says not seeing oneself reflected in the stories we are told “changes who you are”. She ends by saying: “I want to feel like I exist and I want everyone else who wants to feel that way to feel that way too.”
