'Queer as Folk' Creator Russell T. Davies Calls Out 'Loki' For Only Having One Scene About Bisexuality

Russell T. Davies isn’t that impressed with Loki‘s bisexual revelation.

While many fans and creatives praised the reveal on the Disney+ series that Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston, was indeed bisexual, the Queer as Folk creator is putting the show on blast.

In a recent video panel event, Russell opened up about the current state of queer representation in television and honestly, wasn’t impressed with the Loki reveal.

“I think huge, clanging warning bells are ringing as the giants rise up with Netflix and Disney Plus especially,” Russell shared. “I think that’s a very great worry.”

He continued, “Loki makes one reference to being bisexual once, and everyone’s like, ‘Oh my god, it’s like a pansexual show.’ It’s like one word. He said the word ‘prince,’ and we’re meant to go, ‘Thank you, Disney! Aren’t you marvelous?’ It’s pathetic.”

Russell didn’t stop there, and added that it’s also “a ridiculous, craven, feeble gesture towards the vital politics and the stories that should be told.”

The reveal comes at a point in the series with Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) asks Loki about his love life and suspects he’s been with a “would-be princesses, or perhaps another prince.” Loki answers, “A bit of both. I suspect the same as you.”

Loki will be back for a season two on Disney+, along with all these other shows as well.
