Firstly, I'm male, straight, Christian, all the things, and do not support the legality of same-sex marriage for very religious reasons I'd rather not get into here.
That said, I do not consider myself homophobic. I do not hate LGBTQ+, and I hate the hate they get from other Christians. It is not Christian to hate, but I am very aware that it happens. Way too often. If you're reading this and one of those people, know that Jesus Christ himself didn't even hate on the prostitutes, the greedy tax collectors, etc. He loved them and hung out with them. Not exactly what I'm seeing in a good portion of the Christian community.
The reason I bring myself up like this is because I want to let you all on here that you are loved, and I wish more Christians could love as well. As a deep theologian of the Christian faith, I would say that many Christians who actively hate on LGBTQ+ in such ways as they do are on their way to hell.
In other words, I apologize for these people. I love you guys.
I hope I didn't offend anyone in writing this.
PS: Thought I haven't read much anything thus far, per the aforementioned lack of fantasy books, I believe I would quite enjoy a gay protagonist as much as I would enjoy any other character.
Please don't kill me.
