Supergirl character asks fans to support LGBT


Maggie Sawyer may not be on the show anymore but she is very influential even if the watchers don’t see her. n The CW series, Maggie (Floriana Lima) was first introduced as a National City police detective but soon became a love interest of Supergirl’s sister Alex Danvers (Chyler Leigh). Maggie told Alex that her parents outed her as a lesbian and disowned her. Though this story is fictional, many LGBT fans saw themselves in it, many of them had no place to stay because their parents did not accept their LGBT identity. Inspired by Maggie’s story, Supergirl fans created the Maggie Sawyer Matters page and started raising funds for True Colors Fund, a non-profit organization co-founded by Cyndi Lauper in 2008. So far, the campaign – which was only started on April 12 – has raised $8,533. Donor Vanessa Napoleone wrote on the Maggie Sawyer Matter page: “I would’ve never been able to accept myself or admit to myself that I like girls if it weren’t for Maggie and Alex’s relationship.”
