Dove’s LGBT+ consideration

Genders and Sexualities:

Joe calls himself gay. He seems to be indifferent to sex with a partner though which helps because Icarus is ace with sex repulsion. That repulsion could be based on the trauma he has in his history. Or it could be normal and natural. You never know. Take your guesses.

Kristyn – the third biggest character – is pan?. She never truly admits to a specific mark within LGBT+, but she definitely is not picky when it comes to genders.

Sam – as pointed out in the character sheet – is trans. He will always look like a woman even if he never has been one. Magic is messing with his looks.

There is open acceptance within most of the characters. Greg Smith is definitely an ally. His brother is gay and refuses to let Dad look down upon the relationship the pair has. Most of the characters offer little tidbits that suggest either they fit somewhere on LGBT+ or they are an ally.

Outside Dad, but he’s the enemy. (And honestly he isn’t against the relationship, but more pressuring for the next generation. He’s more sexist than homophobic.)
