To all Scooby-Doo fans, Velma is now a homosexual. In an upcoming movie titled ‘Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo‘, she will have a gay encounter.

This was confirmed after clips from the newest Scooby-Doo film for Halloween, Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo, showed the geeky, google-eyed character becoming smitten after she meets a female character.

OMG lesbian Velma finally,” read one tweet, which has over 100,000 likes. It’s long been an open secret among fans and “Scooby-Doo” creatives that Velma is gay.

According to Variety, even James Gunn, who wrote the early live-action films, and Tony Cervone, who served as supervising producer on the “Mystery Incorporated” series, have confirmed the character’s sexuality, but they were never able to make it official on screen.

James Gunn, the acclaimed director, wrote about the live-action series Scooby-Doo and revealed that Velma’s character was initially scripted as ‘gay’. But the studio decided to tone down the buzz at the time to become non-commital about Velma’s sexuality.

But now, 53 years after she first took the screen, her character has come out clean about her sexuality.
The snippet from the movie has now ended years of speculation by fans. People on social media lauded the producers for finally acknowledging Velma’s sexuality. As of now, social media is flooded with positive fan messages for the character.
