To Kill a Black Swan is a visual novel in which the playable protagonist is a detective investigating a mysterious murder. One of the main suspects is the victim’s wife Audrey, who is portrayed as virulently homophobic and sexist. In one conversation with the player, she describes homosexuality as sinful. It is later revealed that she did indeed murder her husband (who was a transgender woman) after learning he had an affair with his friend named Rob.
