Although Game of Thrones
has not been afraid of showing plenty of same-sex action throughout the show's six-year run, there has never been an openly lesbian character since the show's beginning - until now, that is.
On Sunday night's (June 5) episode of the hit show, Ironborn warrior Yara Greyjoy was seen unashamedly lusting after another woman, revealing her sexuality to viewers.
Yara becomes the first lesbian character on the show after gay male characters Renly Baratheon and Loras Tyrell, who were pretty much definied by their sexualiy. by their sexuality.
However, Yara's sexuality was introduced very casually, instead of having it being introduced from the start. The episode showed Yara being mounted by a half-naked woman, before telling her: “Nothing on the Iron Islands has an ass like that.”
After a round of drinking game Yara Cup with brother Theon, she announces that she is going to enjoy her last night on the mainland with a woman, rather frankly saying "Now, since it’s my last night on shore for a while, I’m going to go fuck the tits off this one."
Yara's sexuality brings another change from George R.R. Martin's novels as her character is straight in the book series.
