Upcoming Doctor Who spinoff Class creator will feature a lead LGBTQ character.
Creator Patrick Ness took to social media following the mass shooting in Pulse nightclub in Orlando.
“Been asked if Class will have LGBT representation in it. Will a lead character with a boyfriend who he kisses & sleeps with & loves do?” he wrote.
“We were keeping that secret, but today that secret doesn’t seem very important. #lovewins.
“There’s way more than one character on the show, of course; lots of stories to be told. WITH ALIENS & TERROR & EMOTIONS & STUFF!!!
“So I can’t wait for you to meet the characters of Class, all of em, all their sorrows & joys & goofiness & loves & losses. Roll on Autumn…”
Class takes place at the Coal Hill Academy, the school where The Doctor and several of his past companions have had many adventures over the decades.
An Australian broadcaster is yet to be confirmed.
