Greg Rucka, one of the longtime writers of the Wonder Woman comics, recently declared that the character is bisexual. It makes sense, since she comes from the legendary island of Themyscira, which is populated entirely and only by women. No men in sight. Although that doesn't explain how the Amazonians originally came into being, we do know that Diana, aka Wonder Woman, is the demi-god daughter of Zeus. So do the legendary warrior women have relationships with each other? Gal Gadot says that it makes sense.

On the other hand, it's worth mentioning that even though Diana might never have the amazing on-page or onscreen LGBTQIA love story we want her to have, there are many other queer Amazons in Wonder Woman's mythology that don't receive much attention. In Greek mythology, the Amazons were known as the followers of Ares and Harmonia. While most people recognize Ares as being synonymous with war, Harmonia was the god representing peace. As with some gods, she had an equal but opposite half in Discordia, a god representing strife and discord. Most mythology around Amazons was written by men hundreds or thousands of years ago.
How do we know that the DC Universe Amazons are undeniably queer? In the absence of men, they would have formed relationships, taken pleasure in each other, and built their own families. There are no straight women on Paradise Island. In truth, all the evidence points to sexuality, and female sexuality in particular, being quite fluid.
