"It always warms my heart to see some LGBTQ characters in my videogames. After all, I fell in love with games long before I fell in love with dudes. Though I wouldn’t label myself as a “gaymer,” per se, I’m all for equal representation in all aspects of life.
So to mark the end of LGBTQ Pride Month – as well as pride weekend in New York City and San Francisco – I’ve decided to put together a list of some of the best representations of gay men and women.
This is obviously not a complete list. Sure, I could have put in FemShep from Mass Effect or The Grey Warden from Dragon Age: Origins, but the sexuality of those characters are up to the will of the player. Instead, the following guys and gals were made to stay true to themselves and they rock it.
These, in my eyes, are some of the best gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer* videogame characters that I’ve taken notice of over the years."
