Jack Morrison, or Soldier: 76, is one of Overwatch’s playable characters. He was founder and head of Overwatch during its height, but was presumed dead in a fight with co-founder Gabriel Reyes. Afterwards, he took on the identity of Soldier: 76 to fight off the grid against Overwatch’s previous aggressors. His abilities involve superhuman speed and various stolen Overwatch technology. In the short story Bastet (2019), it was revealed Jack had an ex-boyfriend named Vincent. Michael Chu, Overwatch’s lead writer, later confirmed he is gay.

The second great human country, Ydor, is the kingdom of art. Much more open minded than its neighbor Sarona, you can see openly gay couples, statues of naked men, and drag queens.

There is a steam achievement when playing this game called, “This is my hair, I don’t wear wigs,” that you can unlock if you speak to the drag queen wearing the wig hat, which is a reference to an Alaska Thunderfuck song.
