(Okay so I'm not sure where to post this tho general seems best fitting - but please move if needed)

So I am currently working on a longterm project that aims to be very inclusive in charcaters, character stories and romance options but I would like some insights on things.
Now I know what I am asking is highly personal to most and most won't be willing to share - which I can fully understand (being a gay male myself) but I grew up with "No is the answer you have, yes is the answer you can get" and since I want to be as sincere in my representation of characters as I can i will at least try to get more insights before crafting these characters.

So what I am looking for are ppl that fall under any letter of the LBGTQ (etc) range that are willing to answer some questions on the subject in PM (ofcourse!) to help me understand, gain insight and craft better characters and character stories.

Being a gay male myself I have some insight into that hoever any gay male wanting to chip in is still welcomed to as not everyone deals with things the same way xD
I also already have some insight in genderfluid ppl and FTM Trans ppl but more insights are always welcome!

I am mainly looking for Adrogynous ppl, A-Sexual/A-gender but not A-romantic ppl, MTF Trans ppl, gay female ppl (cuase yes ppl there is a difference between being a gay male or a gay female lol).

But anyone that is willing to answer some questions and share some insights is more then welcome!

Questions I might ask will include but are not limmited to : self identification and emotions, views on romance, biggest hurdles to overcome, cringeworthy moments, behaviour that is or is not tied to gender-identity, etc.

Anyway, I dont really expect many replies but will welcome any I do get :)

Well I'm quite openly gay, but I'm a guy so it's not super helpful to what you need. Still if you want any info about my experiences I am an open book. Just send me a message.

@TheGentlemanLoser it felt weird to write lesbian as all the others ended with ppl aswell (i know its a weird detail to focus on lol).

And not all lesbians are female as some trans ppl i know also identify as lesbian and i do specifically mean cis female lesbians in this case ;)

Thank you to everyone already responding to this! Pretty cool to see so Many willing to share insight and experience to craft a better representation in games!

Gotten more responses alteady then i expected :D

Androgynous tho is still pretty much lacking from the list sadly. So if anyone fits that Bill specifically that would be great!

to all others please keep responding as more insight is always good and helps finetune characters and stories even more :)

just a thought:
the term "inclusivity" implies "segregation" as a fact in the first place.

don't "include" characters..... *make* characters.
them being either sexual orientation should be of no consequence.
give the inclusion for a fact, not the segregation for a fact only to then "patch" it with "inclusivity"

in fact, "inclusivity" doesn't even exist as a word.

True but i do need to get a point across to what i am searching for in a way that doesn't get overlooked and english isnt my main language so yeah xD

And Lets face it but that segregation still exists especially in games even if It is by the trend of being inclusive for the sake of inclusivity

I love finding out some of my fave forum peeps are part of the "alphabet mafia". :)
I'm also a gay-ish male, not quite in line with your ask, but I am totally down to answer whatever Q's you may have. :)

I can add that those responding on this thread are only the ones comfortable enough to do so openly. I have had many more responses in PM.
