As I have Stargate Universe playing in the background, it comes to mind again. Where are all the LGBT characters in sci fi? SGU (this is old news) had a compelling Lesbian character.
Sci fi has interspecies love and sex, human/artificial life form sex, human/simulated life form sex. As a sci fi geek, it frustrates me not to have occasional same-gender loving characters.
Any new ones lately that I don't know about?
This is mostly fantasy but there should be some sci fi as well, otherwise look around the other lists on there, but I think it's pretty rare. I honestly can't think of any recommendations, then again I'm more of a fantasy person, though I love sci fi as well. I think maybe it's because sci fi is usually written by men while lgbt fiction is usually written by women. I think you might have better luck looking for online amateur writers, but finding quality work requires patience.
The actor Wiki:
Torchwood is a great show. I love Sci-Fi like you do.
It should be on Netflix -- I really love that show -- I think you will too.
The character started on Doctor Who and then he got his own show -- so you could watch some of Doctor Who as well. It's the seasons with David Tennant as the Doctor.
Having watched a few episodes now, I liked it so far. I actually had watched the first episode some time in the past, but forgot it.
It's nice that he's "pan-sexual" or "omni-sexual" or "bi-sexual" however they define it or not - but I want a gay guy! I know, one of the complaints a lot of bi people have is lack of visibility - so here's one, sort of! A handsome and swashbuckling one, to boot.
Of course, if they give me a gay guy who I don't identify, then I'll complain that the specific gay guy that I want is missing. Maybe I should write a letter to Vin Diesel - if he played a gay sci fi character I would be very happy.
