Star Wars gets its first official LGBT character added to canon

The Star Wars universe is getting its first LGBT character added to the official canon with the release of author Paul S. Kemp’s upcoming novel Lords of the SithBig Shiny Robot reports.

The character, known as Moff Mors, is described by the website as “an Imperial who has made some very serious mistakes,” but is still considered to be “an incredibly capable leader and spends much of the book working hard to prevent absolute failure.” It’s noted that “[Moff Mors] also happens to be a lesbian.”

Lords of the Sith editor Shelly Shapiro first spoke about Moff Mors’ introduction to the Star Wars universe on the Full of Sith podcast, stating: “This is certainly the first [LGBT] character in canon.

“But there was a gay Mandalorian couple, so it’s not brand new,” Shapiro continued. “It’s not something I really think about, it just makes sense. There’s a lot of diversity-there should be diversity in “Star Wars.” You have all these different species and it would be silly to not also recognize that there’s a lot of diversity in humans. If there’s any message at all, it’s simply that “Star Wars” is as diverse (or more so because they have alien species) as humanity is in real life and we don’t want to pretend it’s not. It just felt perfectly natural.”



Everyone must jump on the bandwagon.

    its sick and getting sicker, i wouldn’t waste a dime on seeing this movie or any movie that has this LGBT filth in it, and your children surely do not need to see it, it will only keep poison there young minds. boycott the the movie and the perverted producers who made it. Jesus stated in the scripture if any one makes the little ones stumble into sin, it would have been better for them if they were not born. So where does this lave this filthy perverse generation of Whores who teach the children filth in our schools, at home, and in Hollywood movies.
