This is how Supergirl and a gay comic book seller saved a young queer girl’s life

Supergirl proves love is love with amazing tweet

When young teens look at the TV and see someone that loves people like them, that’s more important than many people realize – even the creators themselves.

So when Mary, a gay comic book shop worker in Indiana, met a young struggling queer girl who was a fan of the new same-sex relationship on Supergirl – it changed them both more than they could ever know.

In the encounter described as ‘probably the single greatest moment’ she experienced working at the shop, Mary wrote how this young teen was considering killing herself.

That was until she watched the CW show, which recently introduced Alex Danvers (Chyler Leigh) and Maggie Sawyer (Floriana Lima) as an item on the show.

Chyler Leigh, who appears on Supergirl as Alex, wrote to Mary about how her story changed her too.

As she said: ‘This right here is what heroes are made of’.

Mary encouraged people to donate to Equality Florida as an extra measure of good will.
