A former showrunner has confirmed Alex Russo was bi: “It was quite obvious”


Welcome to today’s serving of 7 Days Of Queer, where we look back at the LGBTQIA highlights from the previous week, in case you missed it. 

Kicking things off, a former showrunner and writer on Wizards Of Waverly Place (WOWP) sparked bi panic among Disney fans when he confirmed, 11 years after the show ended, that Alex Russo – who was played by Selena Gomez – was bisexual: “It was quite obvious.” 

Not only were we deprived of this overt bisexual representation, but we were also robbed of seeing a relationship blossom between Alex and Stevie (played by Hayley Kiyoko AKA Lesbian Jesus). 

This isn’t the first time a character has been confirmed as queer off-camera, long after the last credits have rolled – while not being overtly shown onscreen. And yes, it can be frustrating for LGBTQIA audiences. However, for many queer fans of WOWP, this news is sure to feel a little magic.
