Child Chucky confirmed as queer and genderfluid in new series

Chucky confirms he’s “cool” with his genderfluid child in a new TV series.

Chucky—the serial killer who is trapped in a doll’s body and is responsible for an entire film franchise of murderous rampages—is an ally. In the ongoing SyFy series Chucky, the killer doll confesses to his new child owner, Jake Wheeler, that he is totally cool with his genderfluid kid.

The conversation comes about in the second episode after Chucky discovers that Jake has a crush on another boy at school. Chucky reassures him that being gay is fine, sharing that he has a queer/genderfluid kid.

Jake asks, “And you’re cool with it?”

“I’m not a monster, Jake,” Chucky replies.

The kid he’s referring to is Glen/Glenda, largely featured in Seed of Chucky (2004) after their conception and post-credits horrifying birth in Bride of Chucky (1998). Chucky and his bride Tiffany can’t agree on the gender of their child, with Chucky naming them Glen and Tiffany naming them Glenda.

Chucky’s child being part of the LGBT+ community isn’t new, but this is the first time that their identity has been confirmed on-screen.
