Gay and Lesbian Characters in Singles: Flirt Up Your Life

Singles: Flirt Up Your Life is a lifestyle simulation game in which the player controls two characters that share the same apartment with the goal of making them hook up. There are a dozen different characters (though all of them are white), including one lesbian and one gay man. The game allows for the player to couple one of the gay characters with a straight character, and eventually get them to have sex, though it is hard to facilitate. Relatedly, it is extremely difficult to get the gay man and lesbian woman to have sex with each other, though players have tried.
