Adena El-Amin - The Bold Type
Adena is an incredible role model for young lesbians, as she's an openly gay Muslim woman. Through her character, we're opened up to the oppression women and LGBT people in the Islamic religion. She's among the incredible collection of characters on TV who are openly out and have no problem with their identity. She helped Kat Edison realize her own sexuality, and sometimes it's seeing others have no fear in being entirely themselves that helps us realize suppressions we may not have known we had.

The Bold Type Quotes

Adena: You know, there's a lot more inside of a woman than what you can see on the outside.
Kat: Yeah I know, there's a lot more inside of me too.

And I expect you to unleash holy hell on anyone who tries to hold you back because you don't just work for Scarlet, you are Scarlett.
