As someone who's making a fangame that will be filled with some LGBTQ+ characters (some friends have suggested creating a lesbian couple, a gay one, a non-binary person and a trans boy) for story and inclusion purposes. But then I wonder, how can you represent a LGBTQ+ in media in the right way? Meanwhile I know that a lot of people may disagree with me on this, I personally think that some huge mistake of media when showing LGBTQ+ characters is the fact that the only thing their characters are about is being LGBTQ+. Like, certain movies will showcase a gay boy, for example, and the story of how he discovers about it; but then the only trait you might know about him is the fact that he is gay. That’s mostly the reason that I love the movie The Way He Looks so much; because it shows how a gay boy may have a life, goals, dreams, characters traits besides the fact that he is in love with a man. However, in the other side, some people have always told me that since coming out is a ''bigger part of an LGBTQ+ person life'', it’s important to face this issue in media for others to understand this. So, wanting to know your opinions in the matter: How should a good LGBTQ+ character be represented? Is necessary to focus on the mater of their gender identity/sexual orientation, or this should just be a character trait among other traits? I’m glad to hear any opinions!
