When Neeko appeared, it created a surprise among the players as they discovered a female character who flirts with other women of the game.
Senior narrative writer Matt Dunn, who worked on the character, has just confirmed that Neeko is a lesbian.
Beyond that, she is a powerful mechanic champion who assumes the form of any allied champion until combat breaks the illusion.
Fans of the game think Ezreal, Vi, and Fiora are queer characters but it has never been confirmed by the developers. So Neeko is, for now, the first official LGBTQ champion of League of Legends.
