With Pride Month starting, let's see who's celebrating in Runeterra!
Back in 2018 Riot started to highlight diversity and acceptance in League of Legends. There are several champions that have been confirmed to be part of the LGBTQIA+ community and a few who could be part, due to hints. Of course, somebody's sexuality or gender are nothing you should speculate about, since we're talking about fictional video game characters it seems less problematic.
With more than 160 champions to chose from, while playing LoL it's a pity, that there are so few considered to be part of the LGBTQIA+ community, but still let's take a look at them!
LGBTQIA+ Champions In LoL
Diana (Lesbian) – Confirmed & Leona (Unspecified wlw) – Confirmed
- If you had enough of LoL – just kidding. But Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is an awesome game, so feel free to check it out!
Caitlyn (Lesbian) – Confirmed & Vi(Lesbian) – Confirmed
Graves (Gay) – Confirmed & Twisted Fate (Bisexual) – Confirmed
Nami (Bisexual) – Confirmed
Legends of Runeterra confirmed Nami recently to be bisexual and that she is in a poly relationship!
Neeko (Lesbian) – Confirmed
Through her adorable naivety, she doesn't comprehend all nuances of human relationships, but she knows with who she wants to be in one.
- If you're still waiting for Arcane season 2, maybe check out this free Amazon Prime Video trial, for other series to binge-watch
Rell (Bisexual) – Speculation
Rell being bisexual isn't more than speculation, based on her voice lines. So even if you wish for her to be bisexual, keep in mind voice lines aren't confirmation.
K'Sante (Gay) – Confirmed
He's the first new champion, that was confirmed as part of the LGBTQIA+ community, right as he was released.
Taliyah (Transgender) – Somewhat confirmed
Even though Riot confirmed, that she was supposed to be trans, but then they changed their mind. Until now, Riot hasn't confirmed that she's really trans. But they also didn't deny it. So maybe we'll find out during this Pride Month, if not, we'll have to wait.
Varus (Gay) – Speculation
It's really debatable with Varus. He is made up of two fused lovers, Valmar and Kai, but does that make him gay too?
Sadly, that's already the end of the list, but Pride Month just begun and maybe Riot has some surprises for us, so that we can extend the list.
Not on this list but still a cool champion:
