Did Joanna Lumley just "out" her Ab-Fab character "Patsy" as transgender?
Speaking to V Magazine:
“You go back and pick through it, the amount of gay references and ease with which it’s been put into the story, without it being dragged along like a great log of plot. It’s really normal that one of [Edina’s] ex-husbands now lives with his young boyfriend. It’s completely normal that [Edina] wants Saffy [Edina’s long-suffering daughter] to be a lesbian or that Serge [Edina’s long lost son] is gay and living in New York. It’s completely normal that Patsy is transgender.”
If you're a fan of the series - and who isn't? - the interview is really worth the read.
