Homosexual game characters past, present, and future

birdo wtf

Apparently catalyzed by the announcement of GTA: The Ballad of Gay Tony, an Aussie gaming site has published this, “A History of Homosexuality in Gaming.”

While it isn’t the first time I’ve seen a piece like this—and it is by no means a complete catalogue of gay, lesbian, and transgendered video game characters—the article calls attention to myriad canonical amendments, reversals, and omissions, often made for the sake of North American localization. That’s an important thing to note, and even more importantly, that seems to be changing.
