LGBTQ+ in Tamriel

The Elder Scrolls has always had LGBTQ+ characters, but no resource existed about them until I decided to make a Tumblr post in 2014. My aim was to catalog every character that may be LGBTQ+, as well as explicit lore about how the people of Tamriel view such individuals, in as objective a manor as possible, so that the reader can make their own decisions about how “good” the representation is or whether a character “counts” or not.

In 2019 I moved the list to the Imperial Library, where it is now kept and updated when new content is released. I’m also happy to see that both UESP and the Elder Scrolls Wiki now have their own LGBTQ+ pages.
