When Star Wars' director J.J. Abrams was asked about the possibility to see gay characters in the future on the saga, he answered: “Of course!”.
Abrams said: “When I talk about inclusivity it’s not excluding gay characters. It’s about inclusivity. So of course”.
“To me, the fun of Star Wars is the glory of possibility. So it seems insanely narrow-minded and counterintuitive to say that there wouldn’t be a homosexual character in that world”, he added.
By Abrams’ logic, the sprawling Star Wars universe couldn’t possibly exist without a gay populace, even if we haven’t seen a single character identified as gay thus far.
May the gay force be with you!
