10 LGBTI Characters From Our Favorite Video Games


With the LGBT movement growing more and more visible, we found it appropriate to highlight the video game characters that aren't representative of a stereotypical gay character. 

These are The Coolest LGBT Video Game Characters Ever.

PS: spoiler alert.

1. Anthony "Gay Tony" Prince

This list would not be complete without Gay Tony. We all loved the glamor presented in the trailer for this game, but we love Gay Tony because he is the hot mess of the GTA series. Nightclubs and bodyguards still got his money.

2. Saints Row series are great in terms of "romance" equality.

Instead of taking 3 main characters, in turn, we collected all of them under one heading. Because the main characters engage in bisexual dialogues, we do not see any reason for not including them in this list. You can also change the gender in games.

3. The Last of Us/Left Behind

One of the characters in this mega-popular zombie-apocalypse game is a big badass named Bill, “who is gay without being in any way a stereotype,” says Rocca. There was also a downloadable prequel, Left Behind, that revealed that the main character Ellie was a lesbian.

4. GTA: Vice City's transexual character Reni Wassulmaier!

Reni Wassulmaier is a transsexual avant-garde film director from Germany (circa 1984) in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, and a DJ for Flashback FM circa 1998 in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. In one of the missions, Reni had to become a man, went back to being a woman, went back to being a man, before becoming a woman again.

5. Mass Effect 3's bisexual character Steve Cortez!

Steve Cortez is a soldier who left Earth leaving behind his husband and child to serve the human race (spoiler alert) shortly before it was invaded by the Reapers (spoiler over). Despite the possible love of his loved ones, he presses on and remains a valuable asset to your crew. He's not a stereotype, being ripped, exchanging quips with his jacked G.I. Joe toy of a best friend, and he never makes a big deal about it. He opens up a clear probability that in Mass Effect's future, it's kind of just a generally accepted thing across the universe to be homosexual. He also has some great character moments, both serious and fun.

6. Juhani from Star Wars!

A Jedi Knight who grew up in slavery and poverty and fell to the dark side on multiple occasions. Her unwavering loyalty to her comrades helped her clear her mind and become a sub-standard ally in the war against Darth Malak. Her backstory is the interesting part about her. Sold into slavery as a child, found by the order, always fighting a temper that she uses to hide her frailty, thinking she'd even struck down her Jedi Master in battle and nearly losing her mind. It's pretty compelling stuff. Also (spoilers!), you can just straight up kill her when you first meet her, causing her lover to seek murderous vengeance against you later in the game.

7. Mortal Kombat X introduced Kung Jin.

Kung Jin, a former thief turned Shaolin monk, hints at his sexuality in a flashback scene where Jin is pressed to join the Shaolin monks. Jin says, “I can’t... They won’t accept,” with another character responding, “They care about only what is in your heart; not whom your heart desires.”

8. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel character Athena!

In the 2014 RPG shooter Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! one of the playable characters, Athena, is a lesbian and is flirted with numerous times by the female NPC Janey Springs, to which she replies by becoming embarrassed. Their relationship is confirmed later in a conversation between Athena and another character Tiny Tina.

9. At the beginning, the relationship between Max Caulfield and Chloe Price is not very visible.

There is a romantic relationship between the characters Max Caulfield and Chloe Price in the Life Is Strange game developed by Dontnod Entertainment. This, although did not become evident in the first days, is later confirmed in the further parts of the game.

10. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's lesbian character Ciri!

In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt game, that sold millions and was produced by CD Projekt RED, Ciri, a secondary character, is also a lesbian. She even once gives an answer like "I prefer women" to questions about her sexual orientation.
