Apex Legends has two LGBTQ characters

Apex Legends features two members of the LGBTQ community as playable characters, Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment have revealed.

The first is Makoa Gibraltar, who according to EA's character profile page, pledged a life of helping others after 'he and his boyfriend' were rescued by his parents after a motorcycle joyride resulted in the pair trapped in a mudslide. 

In addition, Jay Frechette, Respawn's community boss, told RPS that Bloodhound is 'non-binary, or at least non-specified, in terms of gender.' Other than that though, there's not much known about the character.

Apex Legends launched earlier this week, but it's already drummed up more than 10 million players.
