Gay Geeks Rejoice!
In the upcoming epic drama Game Of Thrones, based on the George R. R. Martin fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire premiering on HBO April 17th , ology.com reports that the series will feature multiple gay, lesbian and bisexual characters, and those characters’ sexuality will be clearly visible.
By the third episode in the shows ten-episode first season, viewers will recognize that the Knight of Flowers, Loras Tyrell, and King Robert Baratheon’s youngest brother, Renly, are both gay and in a same-sex relationship.
Other gay, lesbian, and bi-sexual characters also populate the land of Westeros, including The Red Viper of Dorne, who gets outed as a bisexual character.
The shows executive producer and writer D.B. Weiss being on HBO gives the Game of Thrones opportunities to show the complete picture of each character –– including their sexuality –– in a way that wouldn’t necessarily be possible elsewhere and that the shows second season, which is based on the series’ second book, will see the characters in even bigger roles than the first season.
