Wonder Woman is suggested as being queer or bisexual, as she and another Amazon, Io, had reciprocal feelings for each other.

“Her culture is completely free from the shackles of heteronormativity in the first place so she wouldn’t even have any ‘concept’ of gender roles in sex,” states Graeme McMillan.
