Bill Finger and gay culture

Bill Finger, uncredited co-creator of Batman, had numerous connections to the gay community.

His first wife Portia was a fixture in the mid-century New York City gay scene.

Bill’s only known child, son Fred, was gay.

Bill’s other A-list superhero co-creation, Green Lantern (Alan Scott edition), was recently reimagined as a gay man.

Bill even weighed in on the nature of Batman and Robin’s relationship.

Bill himself, however, was notoriously not gay.
