GAY GEEK - Dead by Daylight Came Adds its First-Ever Playable Gay Gay Character

GAY GEEK – Dead by Daylight PC Game Adds Its First-Ever Playable Gay Character

Behavior Interactive’s Dead by Daylight has announced the addition of its first-ever LGBT+ playable character.

Via Gay Times:

For the last six years, players have immersed themselves in the game’s diverse stories and its batch of 30 survivors . However, for the first time in the game’s history, developers have added its first LGBTQ+ character. On 27 April, Behavior Interactive announced that fan-favorite character David King would become the games first gay character.

The character David King described as a “hot-tempered ruffian”, was first introduced in the game’s fifth chapter, A Lullaby for the Dark: The single child of a wealthy family, David King seemed destined for greatness. While growing up in Manchester, he demonstrated serious potential in both sports and academics, and with his family connections, all doors were open to him. He could have succeeded at anything, if it weren’t for his combative nature. David lived for the adrenaline rush of a good fight and would go out of his way to get into one.

Death by Daylight’s creative director Dave Richard gave further insight into their decision to update the character’s backstory: “It was a long effort to get here today because we wanted – like any type of representation that we do in DbD – we wanted to make sure that we do it right, that it’s not token, and that players will feel represented by this character. David King is a loved character, a youthful character, he is loved by a lot of players, the LGBTQ community already considers this character in their fan love story as being gay as well. So it was a great fit to tell an amazing story,”

Behavior Interactive consulted closely with the organization GaymerX in order to select the right existing character.

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.
