Trans Amazons are now canonized in the pages of Nubia and the Amazons. Writer Stephanie Williams confirmed in a Tweet thread for Wonder Woman’s 80th anniversary.

If you’ve read Nubia & the Amazons #1, the answer to your burning question is yes. There are trans-Amazons. One of the newest Amazons is a Black trans woman.

She then revealed the idea of the Well of Souls, which they felt gave them “endless possibilities” was kicked around in discussions with trans non-binary co-writer Vita Ayala.

When Vita Ayala and I were thinking of a way that provided us with a tool to make things as clear as possible, the Wells of Souls was right there, allowing endless possibilities for the Amazons of Themyscira. It’s essential in opening this world up for future writers.

Williams also promised that Bia will have an important part to play in Themyscira.

Bia will have a role on Themyscira beyond just existing – she isn’t set dressing, she isn’t a box to tick, she is a fully-fledged character that is important to her community.

This is the latest way in which DC Comics are reflecting the world around them!
