'Star Wars' adds its first openly LGBT character

This covers Post- The Clone Wars Season 5 through Rebels Era. His summary: A story of revenge and lust, Savage Opress survived his fight with Darth Sidious by the intervention of his brother Darth Maul. Now Maul is dead and yet Sidious remains, plotting the downfall of the Jedi and the capitulation of the entire galaxy. Personally I'm incredibly excited that the new canon Star Wars novels are gradually reminding readers that straight white cis men don't need to be the default. Given the precedent set by Lords of the Sith and A New Dawn, I can't wait to see what the next title (an Asajj Ventress novel with a female author).

It's hard to ignore the fact that female Star Wars characters are routinely ignored on merchandising - especially if you're seven. Personally I'm incredibly excited that the new canon Star Wars novels are gradually reminding readers that straight white cis men don't need to be the default. Given the precedent set by Lords of the Sith and A New Dawn, I can't wait to see what the next title (an Asajj Ventress novel with a female author).
