Who among us didn’t have the hots for a character in film, TV, or video games at some point? After a Reddit user recently asked, “Which fictional character where you first attracted too? [sic]” a lot of gay and bi men chimed in with their former screen crushes. Some responses were relatable, and some were out of left field, but hey, we can’t judge anyone for the torches they carried as young, impressionable queers.
Here’s a roundup of some of the responses…
The Empire Strikes Back iteration of Luke Skywalker
Gaston from Beauty and the Beast
Zuko from Avatar: The Last Airbender
“Zuko really woke up some new things in me,” the original Reddit poster said.
Kaidan from Mass Effect
Beast Boy from Teen Titans
“Yeeeessss,” another Redditor agreed.
“All three main characters of Pirates of the Caribbean”
Bronn from Game of Thrones
The animated Wolverine
The fox Robin Hood
Shang from Mulan
Kid Flash from Teen Titans
Captain Jack Harkness from Doctor Who
“Just damn,” raved one Reddit user.
