Sony’s choice of opening trailer has the whole internet talking
E3 is a massive annual videogames conference where companies show off trailers for their upcoming games.
This year Sony – Playstation parents – decided to open their conference with a trailer for the hotly anticipated game The Last Of Us 2.
The trailer opens with protagonist Ellie, who is openly gay, sharing a kiss with another woman.
The showing of a gay kiss naturally stirred a lot of interest online, not just because it’s a video game – but its a big budget video game, with mainstream major backing.
The gaming world as poor history of including LGBTQ+ characters, let alone protagonists, so this another step in the right direction for inclsion.
Fans are, of course, hyped about it taking to twitter with there thoughts.

just because your child is smiling at their phone doesn't mean they have a boyfriend/girlfriend. They probably just saw the trailer of the last of us 2.
