June is Pride month and to celebrate this, Disney+ added a list of films and shows to its Pride collection that had LGBTQ representation in them. These included Eternals, Jessica Jones, Runaways, and Marvel’s Hero Project. However, Loki was not on the list. Loki was revealed to be bisexual in the series. This was established with the following conversation he had with Sylvie in the series.

Sylvie: “How about you? You’re a prince. Must’ve been would-be princesses. Or perhaps another prince.”

Loki: “A bit of both. I suspect the same as you. But nothing ever…”

Sylvie: “Real.”
