Queer-Casting the Next X-Men Movie

We pick 10 LGBT characters who are ready to make their big-screen debut in the upcoming X-Men sequel, plus the actors who could easily slip into their boots.



Character: Bling
The daughter of hip-hopper parents, Bling is a tough, street-smart, out and proud lesbian. She’s a young, take-no-crap mutant with the ability to shoot diamond shards from her body. Cross her and she’ll cut you.

Dream Casting: Solange Knowles
By now everyone the world over has seen the Solange versus Jay-Z elevator throwdown. Need we say more? Call your agent, Solange.
