I just saw a post about someone being frustrated that people only seem to want Dean to be bi to have major lgbt representation when Crowley is canon pansexual. What? What did I miss? WHen was it made canon?
Hey, dear anon :)
Well, I guess “canon” is maybe too strong of a word since they never explicitly discuss or confirm Crowley’s sexuality on the show, but Mark Sheppard himself said at a convention a few years back that he believes Crowley to be “more pansexual than anything else” and it seems that a bunch of people agree with that (me included, by the way).
I mean, in his very first scene he’s kissing a man (granted, mainly to seal a deal, but still ;p), he’s indulging in constant sexual remarks and innuendos towards almost anyone who seems to perk his interest one way or another and it’s at least quite canon that he participated in an orgy while possessing a female vessel (with women and men involved). And, of course, more importantly, don’t forget his good time with demon!Dean and some triplets ;DD
In this regard he doesn’t seem to see much of a difference between men and women, humans, demons (I mean, Lilith had been rumored to be his lover, for example) or angels/reapers (Naomi and Billie [both only implied, but rather heavily imo ;)]).
So I think pansexuality is a good way to describe his preferences. You may call it canon, you may not.
In the end it’s Crowley and he does whatever the hell he wants :DD
