SUPERNATURAL gets GLAAD nomination for Charlie Bradbury

It’s an amazing thing to have queer representation, and Supernatural has done an amazing job with Charlie Bradbury, played by Felicia Day. GLAAD chose to recognize her with a nom for “Outstanding Individual Episode (in a series without a regular LGBT character).”

The Supernatural nod comes courtesy of the episode “LARP and the Real Girl,” which featured the return of lesbian/computer hacker/LARP goddess Charlie, played by Day. I stopped watching Supernatural a ways back, but what I’ve heard about Charlie is that she’s refreshingly non-sexualized compared to other shows, which all too often present lesbians as objects of sexual titillation for men.

That she is. Charlie is multi-faceted, funny, intelligent, smart, and caring about the Winchester boys. She also has her ups and downs, just like any good character should. Hopefully we’ll see more of her in episodes to come.
