Cult TV Hero Xena ‘Warrior Princess’ Finally Comes out of the Closet 

For almost anyone who watched the iconic “Xena: Warrior Princess” during its late-’90s-era run, the idea that Xena and her young comrade Gabrielle were more than buddies registers mostly as a big fat “no kidding.”

We had to go two decades into the future from where we started, but we’ve finally got a mythological ancient world with gay people.


In an interview with Lesbian News in 2003, Lucy Lawless said of Xena’s relationship with Gabrielle, “It wasn’t just that Xena was bisexual and kinda like her gal pal and they kind of fooled around sometimes, it was “Nope, they’re married, man.”

They are so in love with each other, they love each other so dearly; there’s no way you can say that’s not true. Anyone can see that from watching the show.”

    the A Day in the Life of they squabble over a frying pan, it was like stepping sideways into a normal episode and showing how adventures, dull to Xena were exciting to Gabrielle, why this was better than married life back in the village, no matter how nice the boy.

    later in the cloning episide, the very Butch and slobbenly Xena kinda almost makes you wonder why Gabrille put up to her, femmes and butches, how 1950s….. 1990s, my decade of coming out and Xena .. well I pushished a sweet bit of saucy fan fiction in a South Asian Cultural Magazine while on Air, Xena and Gabrielle were travelling through India.
