New James Bond Novel Sees Iconic Bond Girl Pussy Galore Come Out As Lesbian

Anthony Horowitz, an author and screenwriter who has taken on things such as Sherlock Holmes, as well as contributing to scripts for Midsomer Murders and Poirot, is the latest author to be chosen to write a James Bond novel by the Ian Fleming Estate.

Now it seems that Anthony is using this opportunity to bring one of the most iconic Bond girls, Pussy Galore, out of the closet. Anyone who has seen the classic Goldfinger will remember her, and she probably set more than a few gaydars off when she rebuffed James’ advances with this sally: “You can turn off the charm, I’m immune.”

But, in Horowitz’ new novel, Trigger Mortis she is well and truly out of the closet. The setting of the book is the 1950’s, just weeks after the events of Goldfinger. In this, Bond puts his undoubtedly smooth charm to work on his female driving instructor, who shrugs it off and chooses Pussy Galore, instead.

When speaking on his decision to bring back the iconic Bond girl, Horowitz had this to say: “Pussy Galore is one of the greatest characters in the whole Bond canon.”
