Other NPC’s with possible LGBTQ reference in Mass Effect

Khalissa Al-Jiliani is a recurring character in Mass Effect. After the main battle of the Shadow Broker DLC (Mass Effect 2), a video archive of the information broker allows the player to see her involvement with an asari, thereby leading to her being possibly a lesbian character.

On the same video archive, there is the suggestion of a possible gay relationship between the turian bodyguard of Aria T’Loak, Preitor Gavorn, and an unidentified male human.

Many NPC’s might identify as LGBTQ, but largely those are only shown via relationships with asari characters.

In Mass Effect 3, after a Female Shepard kills a fierce enemy known as Tresher Maw during the mission “Rite of Passage”, she gets breeding requests from female Krogan.
