Unnamed Gay Couple in BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea Episode 1



Toward the beginning of the DLC Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea Episode One, the player encounters what appears to be a gay couple admiring the scenery of Rapture prior to its downfall. Both men are dressed in 1950s suits. One man is slightly shorter than the other and wears a hat. The men are embracing, with one’s hand on the other’s chest and one’s arm around the other’s waist. The encounter is very brief and easily missed, and does not play a significant role in the story.
