DC Comics has posted a video celebrating its LGBT history.

The DC All Access episode hosted by The Advocate’s Jase Peeples arrives to mark Pride Month and the arrival of Midnighter #1.

The video gives a nod to the troubled past of LGBT characters in comics, and attempts to rehabilitate early gay superhero Extraño.

Other characters mentioned include Batwoman, Constantine, Catwoman and Rene Montoya.

The Batwoman series in particular has been honoured in the past at the GLAAD Media Awards.
