Sonya Deville On How WWE Can Introduce LGBT Characters Without It Being A Big Deal

Sonya Deville was recently interviewed by Michael Reiner of WKBN, where she spoke about being the first openly gay woman in professional wrestling.

“I mean, it’s not something that I ever think about like that, right? It’s always just like, ‘Yeah, I am who I am, and I’m a WWE superstar.’ But obviously, I realize the effect and influence it has on other members of the LGBTQ community, and I love being a part of that. That change in that kind of power that I can give to them, like, ‘Hey, if I can do it, you can do it. And if I can be myself unapologetically, so can you. And you should never be ashamed or afraid of who you are or who you love. It’s should simply just be.'”

On how WWE can introduce LGBT superstars in the future:

“Just as you would have a male superstar on the phone with their wife in a backstage segment or interacting with another female, you just have two females or two males interacting, you know, or maybe I’m on the phone with my girlfriend while you’re filming backstage, you know, something like that, that just allows the inclusivity to be there and not in a forced inorganic way, kind of just how it is in life.”

Deville also revealed that her dream opponent is Lita.
