Lesbian lawyer on Jessica Jones is Netflix latest queer character
The world of comics is not without its lesbian characters these days, with DC’s Batwoman at the top of the rung. Netflix have now jumped on board with Jessica Jones (based on the Marvel comic series of the same name).
One of the main characters, Jeri Hogarth (played by Carrie-Ann Moss who we all swooned over in The Matrix) is an out and proud lesbian.
Hogarth is an attorney who hires Jones to work as a P.I. on cases. It’s fair to say she is something of a stereotype – the powerful and icy corporate type who will stop at nothing to get what she wants, but we also get to see a softer side as she falls for her secretary, Pam.
Jessica Jones is showing on Netflix now. Watch Carrie-Ann Moss talk about Jessica Jones and The Matrix here.
