Spongebob Squarepants Finally Comes Out Of The Closet

People have said it for years but it has always been hush-hushed until now. Nickelodeon’s most popular animated character Spongebob Squarepants is officially gay.

Nickelodeon officially made the reveal Saturday in a tweet shouting out Pride month (June), and attaching photos of three of their canon characters as a clear indicator that they’re all part of the LGBTQ+ community … but without actually saying it outright.

The studio writes, “Celebrating #Pride with the LGBTQ+ community and their allies this month and every month 🌈.⁣” All of the characters — which include Sponge, Schwoz Schwartz from ‘Henry Danger,’ and Korra from the ‘Avatar’ spin-off show ‘Legend of Korra’ — are featured in a rainbow color background, further signaling they are, in fact, part of the community.
