Ragnarok on Netflix modernizes the Norse Mythology figures Thor, Loki, and the Giants. The show opens with Magne learning that he possesses Thor’s abilities. It is set in the little Norwegian village of Edda.
Being the Norse god’s incarnation involves fulfilling the prophecy that refers to Ragnarok, the conflict between the Gods and Giants. Magne also learns that other mythological figures have also taken human form in order to carry out the prophecy.
The show also centers on Magne’s brother, Laurits, who turns out to be Loki’s incarnation. Laurits is naughty and unpredictable. He is a very hazardous character since you never know what he will do or whose side he will support. While Laurits is also gender-fluid, many viewers believe he is gay.

Ragnarok: Is Laurits (Played by Jonas Strand Gravli) Gay, Bi, or Trans?
At the beginning of Ragnarok, Laurits (played by Jonas Strand Gravli) makes it quite clear that he doesn’t follow traditional gender roles. He dislikes labels and objects to being called one thing or another. Although he is gender-fluid, he tends to identify more as a man. He is at ease in jeans and a T-shirt, yet he can also wear a dress with ease.
He wears his mother’s attire in one scenario. Additionally, he enjoys wearing makeup and frequently gets his nails painted. His pronouns are still he/he in the show, but it seems like he wouldn’t care what pronouns people use to refer to him. To Little O, he refers to himself as “Mommy.”
Laurits asks Erik if Loki is trans at one point because he wants to learn more about the definition of transsexuality. When he practically gives birth to a tapeworm, his curiosity really comes into play. Although it is not a typical pregnancy, the tapeworm leaves his body, expands to an unusual size inside his abdomen, and is then born just like a baby would be during a typical pregnancy.
He views the tapeworm as his child while the rest see this as an abnormality. In Norse mythology, the Midgard Serpent Loki gives birth to is referred to as the tapeworm, Little O. His sexual orientation is unknown, but he mostly finds himself drawn to guys. Thus, it is not confirmed if he is gay, bisexual, or trans.
