Lesbian Love In Nickelodeon’s Legend Of Korra
The season finale of the last season of Nickelodeon’s Legend of Korra did everything but verbally confirm what many fans have suspected: a romance between Korra and her female best friend, Asami. Their closeness had been a central theme for the show for some time. So, when the show’s closing moments appeared to validate everyones speculation, with Korra and Asami walking off to the spirit world on a vacation hand-in-hand, it was clear that the show’s creators were sending a few powerful messages to viewers of all ages. Those messages tell fans that female protagonists can follow their hearts to overcome marginalization, follow tropes while simultaneously breaking them, and, most importantly, that unconventional women of any color or sexual preference can become leaders that change the world.
