A List Of "Star Wars" Characters Who Are Probably Gay

A long time ago in a gay-laxy far, far away...

Here are two indisputable facts: LGBT people are EVERYWHERE and space is very, very gay. So of COURSE there have to be queer characters in Star Wars.

Lucasfilm

And before you nerds get your lightsabers in a knot in the comments section, remember this: If you can suspend your disbelief to watch a movie about an intergalactic space war, than you can definitely summon the energy to believe there are queer people fighting those battles! So without further ado, here's my list.

1. Chewbacca

Lucasfilm

Total drama queen. Always making loud noises. He's basically the intergalactic version of a bear. Probably gay!

2. Luke Skywalker

Lucasfilm

Luke's journey is basically a metaphor of a young twink coming out and growing up to be a daddy. THINK ABOUT IT. Also, kissing your sister screams, "BEARD!"

3. Admiral Holdo

Lucasfilm

Canonically might be queer. Also that purple hair? She did what she had to do.

4. At least ONE Stormtrooper

Lucasfilm

Statistically speaking...it has to be true.

5. Jar Jar Binks

Lucasfilm

As much as I hate to claim him as one of our own...Jar Jar is basically every gay you encounter on the dance floor at a club who's had one too many vodka sodas.

6. Mon Mothma

Lucasfilm

Badass female leader of the Rebels? You know it to be true.

7. Darth Maul

Lucasfilm

Face BEAT to perfection. Definitely an aspiring MUA queen.

8. C-3PO

Lucasfilm

Can a robot be gay? I think so!

9. Emperor Palpatine

Lucasfilm

Always wearing ornate, flowing clothing. A flair for the dramatic. And I'm sorry, "turning to the Dark Side" is definitely code for going gay!

10. Snoke

Lucasfilm

See above.

11. Qui-Gon Jinn

Lucasfilm

THAT HAIR. THAT FLOW.

12. Grand Moff Tarkin

Lucasfilm

Uniform PRESSED to perfection *AND* is obsessed with blowing stuff up? I'm calling it — gay!

13. Captain Phasma

Lucasfilm

Anyone whose armor is that shiny is definitely a little queer.

14. Finn...

Lucasfilm

Yup...

15. ...and Poe Dameron

Lucasfilm

This is basically canon. Sorry, ROSE!
