"Ghostbusters" Director Won't Confirm Or Deny If Kate McKinnon's Character Is Gay

But that won't stop LGBT fans from interpreting the flirtatious and charismatic character as they'd like.

"What do you think?" Feig responded when asked directly about the sexuality of the way-out-there engineer portrayed by McKinnon (who pretty much steals every scene she's in). Feig mentioned "dealing with the studios" before shrugging off the question.

And with the recent news that Star Trek is featuring a major openly gay character, it isn't so far-fetched for fans to hope another franchise could do the same in 2016. But at the end of the day, we can neither confirm nor deny that Mckinnon's character is queer.

But, that won't stop people from hoping/dreaming/shipping:

Lord hallow be thy name, thy kingdom come it will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. Kate McKinnon's ghostbuster must be a lesbian. Amen.

lesbian ghostbuster kate mckinnon is the only good thing that has happened all year. such direct pandering to my interests. i love it.

Do you ever look at Kate McKinnon in Ghostbusters and think to yourself "hmm. Maybe I am gay"? Because I sure do.

I honestly do not want there to be a love interest in ghostbusters (2016) unless it's between Jillian Holtzmann and Erin Gilbert

Yes, seemingly overnight the "Holtzbert" ship was sailing.

Even off-screen, the chemistry is palpable.

And if we can't know/agree upon Holtzmann's sexual identity, it seems everyone can agree that she is — hands down — the best part of the film.

Best part of #Ghostbusters is Kate McKinnon 😂😍

BuzzFeed News has reached out to McKinnon for comment and Feig for further comment.
